While the age of factory-produced drag cars is long past, the Dart HEMI Super Stock represents the peak of the short-lived factory drag race wars. In short, there was never a faster factory-built drag car ever made. There were only 50 of these built by Hurst and delivered to dealers for drag racing greats like “Dandy” Dick Landy. A giant 426 HEMI was shoehorned into the engine bay, with a little help – literally – from a few sledgehammer hits to the fender walls. The wheel arches and shock towers were modified similarly to provide clearance for the valve covers. Then, to lighten the body, a fiberglass nose, fenders, and hood were bolted on along with lightened bumpers and the removal of the mirrors, radio, heaters and, yes, the back seat. The unique L023 coded Dart’s HEMI itself was built by hand-picked technicians from Chrysler’s Marine and Industrial division. It was laughably rated at 425 horsepower; in actuality, it easily touted more than 500. While some were driven on the streets, the L023 came with a factory sticker stating, “This vehicle was not manufactured for use on Public Streets, Roads or Highways, and does not conform to Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.” Whether that was a warning or a sales pitch is still up for debate.
— Official description [1]

The 1968 Dodge Dart Hemi Super Stock - abbreviated as Dodge Dart '68 - is a pre-tuned muscle car by Dodge that debuted in the American Muscle Car Pack for Forza Motorsport 4 and appears in all subsequent main series titles.

It is featured in Forza Motorsport 5 as part of the Meguiar's Car Pack.

Synopsis

The 1968 Dart Hemi Super Stock, codenamed L023, is a drag racing-prepared model by Hurst Performance of which 50 models were built.[2]

It uses a stripped-out platform using various fiberglass applications, plexiglass windows and doors with thin paint that result in a weight of 3020 lb (1370 kg), making it both the lightest 1960s Dodge and one of the lightest classic muscle cars in the Forza series. It also has a front weight percentage of 54%, an impressive value for muscle cars of its era.

The Dart's 426 ci (7 litres) Hemi V8 engine, which would not have fit in the engine bay without some modifications to the body and strut towers, comes with 425 hp (317 kW) and 490 ft·lb (664 N·m). Although its engine specifications remain unchanged from other cars with the 426 Hemi V8, the Dart utilises a four-speed close-ratio transmission and has the advantage of having less weight.[2]

Performance

Equipped with a close-ratio transmission in stock form, the Dart Hemi Super Stock can complete 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in only 3.6 seconds and 0 to 100 mph (161 km/h) in 9.3 seconds, making it one of the fastest accelerating muscle cars to appear in the Forza series. Its acceleration comes at the expense of top speed as it already tops out at 127 mph (204 km/h). Handling-wise, the Dart is up to par with most classic muscle cars.

With straight-line performance being the car's strong suit, the Dart can be upgraded for maximum speed when modified with a Race Transmission along with a powerful engine swap, preferably the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4's 6.5L V12. To maximize acceleration, players can change to an AWD drivetrain, although this will limit top speed unless gearing is changed.

In terms of drag racing performance in Forza Horizon 3, the Dart is the fastest S2 class car in drag races.

Variants

Horizon Edition

The Horizon Edition is a special variant featuring performance upgraded to S1 class and a credits boost. Its appearance was altered with Race Aero upgrades, a blower hood, a supercharged 6.2 L V8 engine swap from the Chevrolet SS, and aftermarket wheels.

It could be obtained in the Spring Is Here!, Horizon Halloween and Renaissance Drivers Forzathon events, but can also be bought at the Auction House.

Forza Edition

The Forza Edition is a Forza Motorsport 7 rendition of the Horizon Edition featuring homologated performance, as well as a 20% credits boost and an additional 20% credits boost for hitting 150 mph (241 km/h)

. Due to the use of homologated performance, the 6.2L V8 engine swap from the Horizon Edition is not equipped.

It can be won upon unlocking the Evolution Championship.
