2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 Cruise Weekend | Edmunds.com

http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Features/articleId=125650 "I'll never be able to face my muscle-car friends if I don't ask you for a ride around the block," Brooks reminds me. "Sure, get in." It's not like I'm going to turn him down. This 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 in all its Hemi Orange splendor has been illegally parked in front of motorhead bookstore Autobooks in Burbank, California, for an hour, so I'd be totally cold to just drive off without giving one of the guys a ride. Dropping the keys into the cupholder, I press the start button. It's plastic rather than some kind of pretentious metal, yet it wakes up the 6.1-liter Hemi V8 all the same. It's a hot afternoon in Burbank, but I put the windows down so Brooks can get the full aural effect. "It idles quieter than I thought it would," he says. "I was expecting it to grumble and snort like the old cars that my friends have." I pull onto Magnolia Boulevard, take a quick right down a side street scanning for children and pets, and go for maybe two-thirds throttle. "That's more like it," says Brooks, bracing himself a little. "The Exhaust note gets all loud and old-school as the revs build, and even though it's an automatic, the car feels fast." A minute later, we roll up to Autobooks and my only Challenger ride-along of the weekend seems to be over. But Brooks knows better. "Wait here a second. I'm going to see if my manager Hiram wants to ride with you."

135943 / 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT-8
http://www.rkmotorscharlotte.com/sales/inventory/active/2008%20Dodge%20Chal lenger%20SRT%208/135943 This surly Challenger takes all the torque-rich goodness of one of Dodge’s preeminent pavement pounders and throws in custom tuning, a big Techco Supercharger and custom DuPont ChromaPremier paint. If you’re looking to pick up a modern, hassle-free hot rod that mixes cool technology with killer performance, here’s your nouveau classic! Beginning life at Chrysler’s excellent Brampton manufacturing facility, this Challenger has roamed a mere 10,195 miles of clean blacktop under the guidance of just two owners. Pull the car under the lights and you’ll find custom DuPont ChromaPremier 2-stage that reflects as Hemi Orange, Black and Pepper Gray pigment. Under the hood, Chrysler’s 6.1 liter Hemi utilizes a revised block, a forged crank, lighter pistons, strengthened connecting rods, new oil jets, variable cam timing and increased flow heads to turn impressive 10.3 to 1 compression into 425 horsepower and 420 lb./ft. of torque. That said, more is always better, right? So, in 2008 when this Chally had rolled a mere 60 miles, G-Tech Cars & Engineering installed a 3.0 liter Techco Supercharger that whips that 3G elephant to an incredible 622 rear-wheel horsepower! And if more still isn’t enough, that blower can carry this Dodge all the way to 700 rear-wheel horsepower with the help of high-octane race fuel. The brutal Hemi commands five forward gears through a proven W5A580 automatic. That transmission twists a requisite limited-slip differential around friendly, 3.06 gears. There’s an SRT-tuned chassis that’s fronted by variable-ratio power steering. Braking comes courtesy of Brembo 4-piston calipers, which clamp 14-inch, slotted rotors. And at the corners, chromed SRT blades spin 245/45ZR20 Goodyear Eagle F1s in front of 285/35ZR20 BF Goodrich g-Force Comp-2 A/S tires. Wrapping 622 rear-wheel horsepower in sizzling aesthetics, this incredible MoPar is the perfect car for any enthusiast who wants to hit the hobby rolling.

Review: 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8
Challenger SRT8 is all about the in-your-face attitude that's a Dodge hallmark: big car, big presence, big power. Style rules, yet asks few compromises. Some will opine about the timing of the Dodge musclecar's return, while others will note Chicken Little was last seen impaled in a Viper grille somewhere.
