The 2010 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is a re-issue of an old and world renowned muscle car. It is powered by a naturally aspirated 6.1 liter HEMI V8 engine capable of producing 425 horsepower at 6200 rpm, and 420 lb-ft (569 Nm) of torque. This allows the vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds, and the engine generates a massive 69.8 horsepower per liter of gasoline. Such enormous power is kept in line using either a TREMEC TR 6060 six speed manual transmission with a pistol-grip gear handle, or a standard five speed automatic transmission with an Auto Stick.
The new Challenger SRT8 truly appeals to the desires of the modern muscle car enthusiast. Using fog lamps for headlights and the full-width grill were favorite aspects of the old Challenger, and are re-applied into the 2010 model for the sake of fulfilling the “Dodge Performance Attitude”. The dual scooped hood with a raised center is also retrofitted into the new Challenger SRT8. True to muscle car heritage, racing stripes have also been applied.
