2008-2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8 Drag Racing Racelegal.com 9-7-2012
Friday night drag racing at qualcomm drag race your ride some very nice 2008,2009,2010,2011,2012 dodge challenger srt8 r/t.On December 3, 2007, Chrysler started taking deposits for the third-generation Dodge Challenger which debuted on February 6, 2008 simultaneously at the Chicago Auto Show and Philadelphia International Auto Show. Listing at US$40,095, the new version was a 2-door coupe which shared common design elements with the first generation Challenger, despite being significantly longer and taller. The LC chassis is a modified (shortened wheelbase) version of the LX platform that underpins the 2006--Current Dodge Charger, 2005--2008 Dodge Magnum, and the 2005--Current Chrysler 300. The LX was developed in America from the previous Chrysler LH platform, which had been designed to allow it to be easily upgraded to rear and all-wheel drive. Many Mercedes components were incorporated, including the Mercedes-Benz W220 S-class control arm front suspension, the Mercedes-Benz W210 E-Class 5-link rear suspension, the W5A580 5-speed automatic, the rear differential, and the ESP system. All (7119) 2008 models were SRT8s and equipped with the 6.1 L (370 cu in) Hemi and a 5-speed AutoStick automatic transmission. The entire 2008 U.S. run of 6,400 cars were pre-sold (many of which for above MSRP), and production commenced on May 8, 2008; Chrysler Canada offered a further 670+ SRTs uniquely badged as the Challenger 500 (paying homage to Charger and Coronet 500s) all of which were shipped to Canadian Dodge dealers. Chrysler of Mexico offered only 100 of these cars for that country with a 6.1 liter V8 and 425 brake horsepower (317 kW) (SAE); the version of which was the SRT8. Chrysler auctioned off two 2008 SRT8 for charity with the first car going for $400,000 to benefit the notMYkid non-profit organization. A "B5" Blue No.43 car fetched a winning bid of $228,143.43 with proceeds going to the Victory Junction Gang Camp.
The mid-level Challenger is powered by a 5.7 L (345 cu in) Hemi V8 coupled to a 5-speed automatic transmission or a Tremec TR-6060 6-speed manual transmission. On cars equipped with the automatic transmission, the engine features the Multi-Displacement System and produces 372 brake horsepower (277 kW) (SAE) and 398 lbf·ft (540 N·m) torque. With the 6-speed manual transmission, the Multi-Displacement System option is deleted and the engine produces 376 brake horsepower (280 kW) (SAE) and 404 lbf·ft (548 N·m) torque. Another feature is the Intelligent Deceleration Fuel Shut-Off (iDFSO) available with the manual and the automatic models, the first to combine both a Multi-Displacement system and fuel shut-off. The final drive ratio is 3.06:1 on cars with the automatic transmission, 3.73:1 on cars with the 6-speed manual and 18-inch (460 mm) wheels or 3.92:1 with the 6-speed manual and optional 20-inch (510 mm) wheels. Also available on R/T is the "Track Pak" option group, which includes the Tremec manual transmission, a limited slip differential and self-leveling rear shock absorbers.
The 2009 SRT8, while still equipped with the 6.1L (370 cu in) Hemi V8, is virtually identical to its 2008 counterpart, with the main difference being the choice of either a 5-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual transmission. Standard features include Brembo brakes, a sport suspension, bi-xenon headlamps, heated leather sport seats, keyless go, Sirius satellite radio, and 20-inch (510 mm) forged aluminum wheels in addition to most amenities offered on the R/T and SE models such as air conditioning and cruise control. In addition, the 2009 had a true "limited slip" differential. A "Spring Special" SRT8 Challenger was also offered in B5 Blue, but due to rolling plant shutdowns, just over 250 Spring Special Challengers were built before the end of the 2009 model year. For 2010, SRT8 models added Detonator Yellow as an available color (at extra cost), and only with the optional "Special Edition Group". Yellow Challengers were only be built for a limited time (October/December 2009) in the 2010 model year. Another retro color, Plum Crazy Purple, was also available during Spring 2010 production, offered exclusively in the "Spring Special" package. Furious Fuchsia, similar to the 70s Panther Pink, was limited to one-day production at the Brampton, Ontario plant. The Furious Fuschsia Challengers, unlike previous limited edition Challengers, also featured a custom interior with white seats as well as black rims.

for the 2010 model year; Plum Crazy and Detonator Yellow. A third new
color, Furious Fuchsia was announced in February 2010. But unlike
previous special editions, the Furious Fuchsia version had significant
changes to the interior with white leather instead of the usual black
seats. Chrysler also made a late-year addition to the 2010 model year with
the limited edition Mopar '10 Challenger R/T. These cars, limited to only
500 examples, were metallic pearl black in color with three accent colors

pistol grip shifter, custom badging, Mopar cold air intake for a 10 horsepower increase, and

automatics and 41 were manuals. Out of the 130 with silver stripes, 86 were

Making A Dodge Challenger
We sent a team to the Brampton Assembly Plant to get a "behind the scenes"
look at the elements that go into the creation of a Dodge Challenger. So if
you love this iconic muscle car, follow us on the journey...
2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 WINDING ROAD POV Test Drive
Dodge was founded in 1900 by the Dodge brothers - Horace and John Dodge -
as the Dodge Brothers Company, parts and assemblies to the burgeoning
Detroit automobile supply industry. The company was successful from the
start and picked up regular work production engines and chassis for the
Olds Motor Vehicle Company and the Ford Motor Company.
The demands and pressures of the booming automobile industry, however, soon
led the brothers to tinker with the idea of producing their own
complete cars. Co - founder John Dodge has once proclaimed in 1913 that "he
who is born in the area of Henry Ford's vest pocket tired " was.
The first car of the Dodge Brothers Company was the Dodge Model 30 that
several important concepts in the years to come standard, such as an all
steel body, 12- volt electrical system and a sliding door gear were
introduced. The Dodge car was displayed prior to its entry into automobile
manufacturing a hit from the start , with so much on the quality and
durability of the car as on the exemplary work ethic of the brothers over
the years. After 1916, the Dodge cars were the second largest sale in the
U.S., only behind the Ford Model T.
After the death of the Dodge brothers in 1920, the company Reed & Co. was
initially Dillon, sold for a reported $ 146 million ( the largest financial
transaction in history) and later by Chrysler for a $ 170 million shares.
Until that time, Dodge had not fallen on. 7 in the U.S. automotive sales
An important turning point in the fortunes of Dodge engines was the
Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the United States' entry into World War
II. The Dodge brand was particularly successful in the Chrysler line of
products as a military vehicle because of the durability of its light
The post-war years and that era insatiable appetite for cars led to
increased sales of automobiles across manufacturers, and Dodge enjoyed a
resurgence in popularity among the civilian population (it was already a
popular military transport vehicle). The year 1953 saw the introduction of
the first V8 engine, well in time for America's discovery of the joys of
motorway travel. The larger, more Dodge cars have been well improved by the
American public during this time and revenue each year.
Dodge was one of the major players in the late 1960s and '70s muscle car
market, and is fondly remembered today. Than creator of some of the most
popular muscle cars of that period The cumbersome, inefficient fuel Dodges
were not prepared for the oil crisis of 1973, when the demand for
efficient, smaller cars increased. The financially strained parent company,
Chrysler, could not move fast enough to change his line up to cater to this
new challenge, and in 1979, the and received federal loan guarantees, to
protect them from a certain near bankruptcy.
After the bankruptcy near experience, Dodge Chrysler parent company
branched out into smaller, more efficient models like the caravan. Dodge,
but retained its sporty / aggressive line with the introduction of models
such as the Dodge Spirit and the still popular Dodge Viper.
At the present time, Dodge is known for its aggressively styled cars like
the Dodge Challenger and Charger and its powerful, robust truck, the Dodge
Ram and Dodge Dakota. Despite the company 's most important market of
pickup trucks and large sport cars see a significant drop in demand due to
the rising cost of fuel and the economic recession Dodge has continued to
remain strong in the North American market.
