Challenger New vs. Old: Vanishing Point Revisited
"Our sole Challenger has just broken the ring of evil the deep blue meanies
have so righteously wrought — get through 'em baby, get through 'em." —
Super Soul, Vanishing Point 1971
It happens deep in the Nevada desert, just past Austin. On a long, straight
section of road with nothing to lose, our friends in the white 1970 Dodge
Challenger R/T finally put the hammer down. At once, the rawness and purity
of Kowalski's ride pulverizes the well-insulated interior of our 2008 Dodge
Challenger SRT8, shredding the peace inside the modern car's cockpit with
the same brute force Kowalski used to pierce a hole in the cool desert air
38 years ago. Even with my right foot buried, I see nothing but taillights
until they disappear into the desert.
In these few brief seconds, the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is clearly
defined by its soft edges and quiet Exhaust. Manufacturers don't let us feel cars
raw and unfiltered anymore. Hammering down a desert road with a thin-rimmed
steering wheel and pistol-grip shifter — that's raw. Four hundred and
forty cubic inches and a four-speed — that's raw. Powerslides unhampered
by electronic intervention — that's raw.
In 1970, when Kowalski drove this very road — U.S. Highway 50 through
Nevada — he felt it. And it was raw.
2008 SEMA: Dodge Challenger Convertible
MORE SEMA INFO:
HIGH SPRINGS, Florida — Dodge has no plans to offer a Challenger
convertible, which provides Coach Builders Ltd. an open shot at muscle car
enthusiasts looking for an alternative to the popular Ford Mustang drop top. Now in final
preparations for its official debut at the upcoming 2008 SEMA Show, the
Coach Builders Dodge Challenger convertible will be shown alongside the
company's Chrysler 300C and Cadillac CTS convertible conversions.
Coach Builders' Larry Moran told Inside Line that production of the
Challenger convertible will begin on November 15, and that the company is
"already taking deposits for getting a place in line." The Challenger
convertible conversion is priced at $16,000, Moran said. A 2009 Dodge
Challenger SRT8 currently costs $41,695 including shipping charges and
gas-guzzler tax, so expect to pay nearly $58,000 for open-air Challenger
Moran also says that "custom interiors, performance options and wheels and
tires" will be offered, but the details "are not firmed up yet." The car
that will debut at SEMA was fortified with a Vortech Supercharger that bumps the 6.1-liter Hemi V8 to
560 horsepower and
510 pound-feet of torque. It rides slightly lower on a KW coil-over
suspension kit and 22-inch Foose Challenger wheels wrapped in Nitto tires.
The convertible conversion reinforces the Challenger with strut bars hidden
inside the trunk instead of a visible roll bar, and the acrylic polyester
cloth hydraulic top is padded between the structure and the exterior fabric
for sound and temperature insulation. A heated glass rear window and
matching fabric headliner are also included.

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat: 707 Horsepower? Hell Yeah! – Ignition Ep. 116
On this episode of Ignition, presented by Universal Technical Institute,
Carlos Lago drives the most powerful production muscle car on the market:
The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. While it isn’t the most powerful
production V-8 in the world (which loses to the $1 million McLaren P1 by 20
hp before electric motors), the Hellcat’s 707 hp rating seems too
incredible to believe -- especially when you consider the cost. The
question is whether this Challenger has any brain to go along with its
extreme brawn. Through a trip to the Dyno, the test track, the road,
and a standing mile, we find out.
Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.

Challenger Drag Race! - SE vs R/T vs SRT8
MT Technical Director Frank Markus tests the three 2009 Dodge Challenger
variants - SE, R/T, SRT8 - with a three-way drag race and laps around our
figure eight. Read the story here:
Challenger: Faster than a Speeding Bullitt?
The rebirth of the American muscle car is about a lot more than retro. It's
about pride. It's about recalling a time when Americans looked down the
road to the future with confidence, and they wanted a great big V8 engine
to get them there as soon as possible.
It's no wonder the 2008 Ford Mustang Bullitt has our respect. It's
the best version yet of the 2005 Ford Mustang, the car that set Detroit on
fire again with enthusiasm for good old American muscle. Maybe the
fuel-guzzling muscle car won't save Detroit from the challenge to build
cars that people need, but it's surely restored the domestic car industry's
confidence in its ability to do so. And it's shown that Americans can build
cars that are utterly unlike anything you'll find in Stuttgart, Shanghai,
Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur or any of those other places that economists think
they're so clever to know about.
Now that the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is here, Chrysler is cracking the
seal on its own Mopar-branded can of muscle-car whoop-ass to show that it
understands what's at stake in the muscle-car sweepstakes. The Bullitt and
the Challenger are the two coolest cars in America, and it's only natural
to bring them together.
SpeedFactory Challenger in a Supercharged Dodge Challenger SRT8 Grudge Match Drag Race
Mopars at the Strip is an annual MOPAR car show and Drag Race event held at
Las Vegas Motor Speedway every year. In 2009 SpeedFactory attended and
displayed our 600HP supercharged SpeedFactory Challenger - the first modern
Challenger to be supercharged. Next door to us was a supercharged
Challenger built by CDC/Group 2. The inevitable occurred - and Rob Wolf,
editor of Mopar Collector's Guide, did a "Pinks" style start for the grudge
match on the 1/4 mile drag strip. SpeedFactory driver Eddie Rosa emerged
victorious with a 1/4 time of 12.374 seconds at 112.66 mph, beating the
other car by 4/10 of a second.
The SpeedFactory Challenger has the Stage 3 Supercharger package, featuring a Vortech Supercharger at 5.5 lbs Boost, Hotchkis handling package, Magnaflow
catback Exhaust, and SpeedFactory
Signature package. Installed options include Richmond 3.55 gears and Boze
Tach style forged wheels. Everything else on the car is stock 2008 Dodge
Challenger SRT8. As shown in the video, the Challenger was on street tires.
On drags, the SpeedFactory Challenger runs in the 11s.
Thanks to our partners at Vortech Superchargers, Magnaflow Performance Exhaust, Richmond Gear and Boze Forged Wheels.
