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.
Dodge Challenger SRT8--Video Review with Chris Moran
A nearly brand-new 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 with only 2000 miles--Offered
by D&M Motorsports. Presented by Chris Moran
For 2008, Dodge brings back the Challenger. With a 425-horsepower V8 and handsome
retro styling, this reborn muscle car gives the Dodge boys something to be
Did you miss out on the original 1970-'74 Dodge Challenger? Or maybe you
had one back in the day, sold it and now regret the sale? Well, thanks to
the Dodge boys who share a similar nostalgic sentiment, you get a second
chance with the 2008 Challenger.
Those familiar with the old Challenger know that it was a belated response
to Ford's wildly successful Mustang, which was launched some six
years earlier. Size-wise, however, the brawny Challenger was closer in size
and weight to a 2-ton muscle car than a lithe pony car. Big V8s were the
engines of choice, including the legendary 426 Hemi V8. Unfortunately, this
model's life was shortened by the era's gas crisis and more stringent
Despite arriving into an eerily similar climate, there's no need to worry
about the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 merely being a poser's visual link to
the past -- it sports standard "Hemi" V8 power, rear-wheel drive and the
right sound burbling from its rectangular Exhausts. Initially, it will only be available
in ultra-high-performance SRT8 form, meaning its 6.1-liter (around 370
cubic inches for you old-school types) V8 makes 425 horsepower. A less powerful
(and less expensive) R/T model will debut next year.
The Challenger is based on Chrysler's LX platform, which is also used for
the 300 and Charger sedans. Its wheelbase is 4 inches shorter than the
Charger, though with an estimated 4,140-pound curb weight, the new model is
frighteningly similar to its forbear in sheer bulk. Of course, the '08
Challenger does come with features previous Mopar designers could have
hardly dreamed about, such as stability control, side curtain airbags and
an available hard-drive-based navigation system that can also store music
and video files.
In addition to having more features, the new one also differs by being
fairly athletic and able to go around corners without scraping the Goodyear
lettering off the tires. And thanks to its massive Brembo brakes, it can
also stop from 60 mph in significantly less than a football field's length.
Sadly, also unlike the old Mopar, you can't get a manual transmission.
Instead of a pistol-grip Hurst to grab gears with, you get a five-speed
automatic with Chrysler's AutoStick mode.
Overall, however, we like how the 2008 Dodge Challenger impressively
combines the visceral and visual excitement of the past with modern
engineering, safety and convenience features. We have no doubt that it will
live up to the hype, though the accompanying dealer markup and limited
availability will make this $38,000 car that much more dear. Shoppers not
willing to deal with all that could simply pick up a Ford Mustang GT or GT500. Or even better,
one could be patient and wait a year until the new Chevrolet Camaro will be available. At that
point, the domestic pony car wars will once again be in full swing.
Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options
The 2008 Dodge Challenger is a large five-passenger sport coupe available
in a singular, high-performance SRT8 trim level. Standard features include
20-inch alloy wheels wearing 245/45 high-performance tires, a sport

sport seats, air-conditioning, full power accessories, cruise control, an

combination navigation and music server system, and ultra-performance

2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat: 707 Horsepower? Hell Yeah! – Ignition Ep. 116
On this episode of Ignition, presented by Universal Technical Institute,
Carlos Lago drives the most powerful production muscle car on the market:
The Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. While it isn’t the most powerful
production V-8 in the world (which loses to the $1 million McLaren P1 by 20
hp before electric motors), the Hellcat’s 707 hp rating seems too
incredible to believe -- especially when you consider the cost. The
question is whether this Challenger has any brain to go along with its
extreme brawn. Through a trip to the Dyno, the test track, the road,
and a standing mile, we find out.
