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.

Experience some sights and sounds of the 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392
HEMI Inaugural Edition. I was able to drive it on the same canyon roads
that I recently drove the Mustang Shelby GT500 and was shocked
at how fast and how great this car handles for being over 600 lbs. heavier
than the Shelby.
This limited edition 392 I.E. package will cost about $47,000 and features
the new 6.4L HEMI engine that is good for 470 horsepower and 470 ft.lbs.
of torque. The special interior is very flashy at first but fits perfect
with the overall feel of the car...which is in your face awesome but sedate
enough to live with every day.
Speaking of living with this car, during my grueling commute to work the
few days I had this thing, my fuel mileage average was 21 mpg combo which
blew me away.
Do I want this car, heck yes I do! But this price range has some stiff
The collect-ability factor is very high with this factory hot rod though.
Dodge will make less than 1500 of these so you had better get in line
pretty quick to own one.
