Dodge Challenger SRT8
From Chrysler press: The 425 horsepower (317 kW) and 420 lb.-ft. of torque (569 N•m) in the 2010 Dodge Challenger SRT8® are the result of SRT’s exclusive and proven 6.1-liter HEMI® V-8 engine, which represents the highest naturally aspirated specific-output V-8 engine ever offered by Chrysler. Its 69.8 horsepower-per-liter rating exceeds even that of the legendary 1966 “Street HEMI.”
New for the Dodge Challenger SRT8 in the 2010 model year is a limited-edition Plum Crazy model. It will feature a unique Plum Crazy Pearl Coat exterior paint color with a plum seat-stripe insert, along with a serialized dash plaque.
Exterior styling cues are unmistakably Dodge, with proportions that evoke a bold, instantly recognizable vehicle that has a wide, stable stance on the road. A full-width grille and fog lamps, reminiscent of the original Challenger, are married to the modern “Dodge performance attitude.” The result is an aggressive face that is unmistakably a muscle car. The hood—with a raised center, black stripes and functional dual scoops—stays true to the Dodge Challenger heritage, as does the A-line and beltline.
The 2010 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is available with either a standard five-speed automatic with Auto Stick or an available Tremec TR-6060 six-speed manual transmission that was first offered on the 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10®. The result is a Dodge muscle car packed with modern amenities and features any enthusiast will love.
