2010 Dodge Challenger SRT-8 Start Up, Exhaust, In Depth Tour, and Short Drive
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2010 Dodge Challenger
SRT-8. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of
this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique
styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details
of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.

The movie, "Vanishing Point" is the Mopar lover's equivalent of "Gone in 60
Seconds." A guy, a fast car, and a long drive at high speeds—what else do
you need? The guy was named simply Kowalski, and his car was an unmarked
white 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T. The drive was a bet that he couldn't get
from Colorado to San Francisco in 15 hours. We don't need to go into a lot
of details about the plot to get the gist of it: a cool white Challenger
spends almost two hours of screen time running flat-out—what else do you
really need from your car guy movie?
Recently, ten white, stripe-delete, 6-speed SRT8 Challengers were delivered
to New Wilmington Dodge for the full Kowalski: unique decals on the rear
spoiler and under the hood along with a special numbered dash plaque and a
custom fender tag mounted in the engine bay, plus a pair of Scat Pack bee
decals for the quarter windows, reminiscent of the ones used on Dodge's
1970 performance models. Inside, the Kowalski cars get 1970-style Hurst
Pistol Grip shift handles with wood grain grips and a six-speed
shift-pattern insert; out back are Mopar chrome quad Exhaust tips. The cars come with a unique
broadcast sheet as well, and as a tribute to the movie that will get fans
excited, there's a reproduction Colorado license plate that matches that
used on the movie car.
Of course, all ten Kowalski Edition Challengers were snapped up before the
broadcast sheets even hit the assembly line printer, and this one, number 4
of 10, was ordered new by RK Motors Charlotte and we took delivery of it
directly from New Wilmington Dodge. It has nothing more than delivery and
test mileage, and is factory new in every way. This is the ONLY Kowalski
Challenger available anywhere, at any price.
The plain white body actually looks amazing if you're a Vanishing Point
fan, and super stealthy even if you're not. The lack of stripes or exterior
markings helps the car keep a low profile yet definitely makes the Kowalski
Edition cars stand out in a crowd of other SRT8s. These cars will be mobbed
at the next Mopar Nationals show, guaranteed.
Power comes from a 392 cubic inch Hemi V8, which now makes 470 horsepower and 470 pounds of
torque. With the Kowalski Edition, there's a high-flow air filter which may
free up a few horsepower and gives the
intake a definite big block sound that's strangely absent on the stock car.
Otherwise, the engine bay is in untouched factory condition, with all the
original markings, labels, and components 100% intact.
The transmission is a 6-speed Tremec that's more than up to the beating
it's sure to receive at the hands of the big Hemi, and the rear
differential internals are now shot-peened for extra strength. The Exhaust system has been reworked, and
according to Chrysler engineers, it just barely passes drive-by sound
