1970 Mustang Fastback 545 CJ aka "MaDD MaXX"

On a cold dark night, you can hear the beast in the distance...is it a fire breathing dragon come to devour the souls of sinners? Instilling fear and awe and when it accelerates, you experience the true Lord of Justice of the road. The most feared legend of the American back roads, the evolution of evil on the streets is MADD MAXX - a venomous masterpiece built by Dark Horse Customs in northern California.

Like Stephen King's Christine, some cars seem to have an identity and therefore a life of their own and the MADD MAXX is one such vehicle. Once a movie car rental for the studios, the MADD MAXX was almost turned into a Boss clone car for a quick flip by its owners. But when it came time to hammer out creases, warts and body lines, they realized that it would be a tragedy to do so and they left the patches, the Frankenstein welds, and everything else as is, letting the semi-retired MADD MAXX serve as the prototype/test car for DHC's powerful Cobra Jet engines. Originally tooled with a monster 460, MAXX now sports the new DHC built 545 Cobra Jet Engine which was developed for their new 545 Legend Series to begin production in 2018. With a Tremec 5 Speed and a Monster Moser rear end, the MADD MAXX is tooled to travel at fast speeds for long distances, sort of like a NASCAR/ Drag Car/Batmobile from hell all in one. These guys cryogenically seal their engine blocks and use titanium parts to ensure indestructibility in their builds.

 Look for MADD MAXX to be featured in the upcoming Sector 5 Films, "360 Death Squad" starring American Legend, Robbie Knievel, and check out MADD MAXX and other awesome cars at darkhorsecustoms.net.

The 545 Cobra Jet Engine was DHC built and developed for the Dark Horse, 545 Legend Series cars to begin production in 2018. The MADD MAXX has been updated to test and exhibit this latest DHC Cobra Jet development. All engine parts are Cryogenically treated.
