Dodge Challenger 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker

Sometime in the last few years, the people at Dodge must have said to themselves, “dammit all to hell, let’s just build the fastest production cars this country has ever seen.” That’s the only explanation we can come up with for rides like the 2015 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack with 392 in.³ hemi engine. Parents of teenagers take note: this is one car you should never, ever let Junior drive, no matters how many A’s he got on his report card.

Exterior

While other automakers pay tribute to the muscle cars of yesteryear, Dodge seems determined to clone them, at least when it comes to exterior styling. The 2015 Dodge Challenger Scat Pack looks as if it drove straight off the set of an action flick from the early 1970s. The Shaker package includes a special hood design that feeds air into the always-hungry hemi engine. Add grill work done in gloss black, a satin black spoiler, a 392 hemi logo on the scoop and other custom touches and you’ve got yourself one helluva showpiece, one that’s sure to turn the guy across the street green with envy.

Interior

The interior of the 2015 Dodge Challenger 392 Scat Pack Shaker builds on the design strengths of the 2014 Challenger SRT, offering cushy touches like perforated leather seats available in either “radar” red or dark slate gray. The steering wheel is designed for performance (and it shows), while silver petals and the Shaker logo on the dash keep true to the Challenger’s muscle car roots.

Engine

6.4 L hemi V-8; what else need we say? Dodge says that this Challenger can do it 0 to 60 in a shade over four seconds, at least when it’s paired with the available eight-speed automatic transmission. The official top speed is 182 mph, though we suspect it’ll go just a wee bit faster with the right driver behind the wheel.

Understandably, the car is outfitted with humongous disc brakes that offer four-piston calipers and high-friction pads. Once applied, they will bring the Challenger from 60 to stop in 117 feet, room enough for the cop who is chasing you to have plenty of parking space. What did James Dean say about living fast?
