Christine is Plum Crazy
At the 2010 CIAS, Christine sees a Plum Crazy R/T Dodge Challenger and drags me over to it. Luckily I had my camera out and hit record just in time to capture the excitement.
2010 Dodge Challengers galore
(First of all, let me correct myself, in the narration I get the year wrong, it is indeed 2010. First time I've done that.) Beauties, including a gorgeous Detonator yellow "Classic" package R/T. Drop dead gorgeous. I know, I complain a lot (who me?) but I'll say it again and again "We are so lucky to have this car." Support Ma MoPar and support the beautiful Challenger, people!
ItaliaspeedTV - Dodge Challenger (2010)
The 425 horsepower (317 kW) and 420 lb.-ft. of torque (569 N•m) in the 2010 Dodge Challenger SRT8® are the result of SRTs 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. Interior highlights include race-inspired leather seats with added bolstering and an exclusive red accent stripe, exclusive stitched accents on the seats and steering wheel, four-bomb gauges with tachometer and 180-mph speedometer in the center, and an SRT-exclusive Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) with Performance Pages that provide drivers instant feedback on 0-60 mph time, 60-0 mph braking, G-forces in addition to one-eighth mile and quarter-mile times. The classic pistol-grip shifter featured on the manual transmission is reminiscent of the original Dodge Challenger.
