132727 / 2011 Dodge Kowalski Edition Challenger

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

In our recent pony car comparison test, the retro-heavy — and just plain
heavy — 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS walked away with top
honors in its debut. The big V8-powered coupe needed a new challenge. It
was time to refocus the lens. Shoot from a different angle, so to speak.
So we squared the brooding visage of our SS-badged protagonist up against
the cruelest bunch of savages we could find, the range-topping 2009 Dodge
Challenger SRT8 and 2010 Ford Shelby GT500.
2009 DODGE CHALLENGER SRT8 WITH NOWEEDS.NET EXHAUST DIVERTERS INSTALLED - HD
These are the results after installation of the stainless steel bolt in
WWW.NOWEEDS.NET electronic Exhaust
diverter system for the 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8. Installation was done
on a stock SRT8 while still keeping the factory cats, resonators, mufflers,
and SOUND intact. This was filmed at Fairfax, SD. See 2010 Camaro video for more detail as
to how the installation is done as it was very similar. This is more of a
sound clip video- we will post an installation video later.

The Smoking Tire hits the canyons in the new and mostly improved Dodge
Challenger SRT 392. Are the recent updates to the Challenger enough to make
it a true sports car? Or is it still just a luxury cruiser?
