Experience some sights and sounds of the 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392
HEMI Inaugural Edition. I was able to drive it on the same canyon roads
that I recently drove the Mustang Shelby GT500 and was shocked
at how fast and how great this car handles for being over 600 lbs. heavier
than the Shelby.
This limited edition 392 I.E. package will cost about $47,000 and features
the new 6.4L HEMI engine that is good for 470 horsepower and 470 ft.lbs.
of torque. The special interior is very flashy at first but fits perfect
with the overall feel of the car...which is in your face awesome but sedate
enough to live with every day.
Speaking of living with this car, during my grueling commute to work the
few days I had this thing, my fuel mileage average was 21 mpg combo which
blew me away.
Do I want this car, heck yes I do! But this price range has some stiff
The collect-ability factor is very high with this factory hot rod though.
Dodge will make less than 1500 of these so you had better get in line
pretty quick to own one.
2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 "Getting to know her"
These are clips thrown together from some time I spent on local roads
getting to know my new car. I have about 1000 miles on it now and can't
wait to run these roads again at higher RPM and lower gears this summer.
I'm breaking it in my way :) Still this turned out to be a bit fast at
times but the car didn't slide or even make any tire noise, however my ass
did try to slide out of the seat. ( can you spot the 2 unmarked police

2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 Green With Envy
Dodge is spicing up the Challenger line with a new eye-searing paint color.
The hue is called Green With Envy, and it's supposed to pay homage to some
of the wilder colors from the company's past, including Sublime and Green
Go. Buyers will be able to grab their new green Challenger in one of two
configurations, including a new R/T Classic that serves up the company's
5.7-liter V8 engine with two A-line body stripes. The accents are available
in either matte black or white.
For those who need a little more bite with their bark, Chrysler is also
serving up the Challenger SRT8 in the new paint. In that trim, owners can
enjoy the same 470-horsepower 6.4-liter V8
engine found in the Challenger SRT8 392, and the muscle bruisers will be
differentiated by full-body black stripes. Likewise, the interior will
enjoy Green With Envy accented seats.
Look to pony up around $35,785 for the Challenger R/T Classic Green With
Envy and $44,875 for the SRT8 iteration. Both prices include destination

Dodge Hellcat-Viper-Hellcat Thrash Battle! - Roadkill Ep. 38
Roadkill is now powered by Dodge! To kick off the sponsorship, Finnegan and
Freiburger called for some brand new 2015 supercars: the 707-horsepower Dodge Challenger
SRT Hellcat and Charger SRT Hellcat, plus a 645-horsepower Dodge Viper GT.
Why? For an epic thrash, of course! This video has more tire smoke than
you've ever seen from these cars, plus a big, irresponsible surprise at a
motocross track. There are guest spots from Carlos Lago from Motor Trend,
Fred Williams from Dirt Every Day, and pro drifter Tony Angelo. None of
these guys should have been handed the keys. And by the way, we used the
Hellcat red keys the whole time.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
