We all know Dominic Toretto loves his American muscle cars. Well, in real life, actor Vin Diesel fancies them just as much—and everyone knows it.

The engine sounds insane, doesn’t it? Well, for starters, this isn’t any ordinary Charger. After a bit of digging around the web, we found out that Vin Diesel’s newest addition to his collection is known as the Dodge Charger Tantrum—a custom build from SpeedKore Performance Group. Under its hood is a 9.0-liter Mercury Racing twin-turbo V8 capable of producing a whopping 1,650hp on racing fuel. One thousand six hundred fifty.

Diesel was stunned by the gift, to say the least. He also had a message for the late Paul Walker as he tried to express his gratitude to his Fast family. “You see this, Pablo? We hope to make you proud, Pablo,” the actor said.
