Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 HEMI - Special Edition ROAD TEST
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 competitors.
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.

Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Super Snake - 750 Horsepower ROAD TEST
I was lucky enough to get the keys to this awesome car and wanted to share
my quick blast up this canyon road with any fellow gear heads. I'm just
your average car lover that happened upon this great opportunity to wheel
one of the fastest production Mustangs ever made! Chevy, Mopar or
Ford guys should appreciate this car...750 horsepower in a production
street car is flat-out cool. Unfortunately my lack of skills don't do this
car justice on the road...but this video will give you a taste of the
immense power, ferocious sounds and sexy yet menacing looks of this
American muscle car.
Check out the other videos on my you tube channel... there are a few more
road test videos with some great cars and build videos of my personal
project vehicle, a 1970 Ford Maverick with a Dodge Viper V10 engine stuffed

Top Gear testing a Mustang shelby GT500
Starting in 2008, previous 2007 Shelby GT500 Mustangs could be sent to Carroll
Shelby's Special Performance Plant in Las Vegas to be rebuilt into a Super
Snake, which resembles the 1968 GT500KR, for an additional cost of $27,995.
The Super Snake will offer a 605 hp 5.4LEaton roots type supercharged
version with warranty. A Kenne Bell twin-screw supercharged version with
"over 725 hp" will also be available, without warranty and a 0-60 time of
under 4 seconds. The Super Snake is inspired by the 1967 GT500 Super
Snake, a car made by Carroll Shelby for Goodyear Tires
Automobile racer Carroll Shelby transformed a conventional Mustang into a serious track racer
designated as the "GT-350". The fastbacks were shipped from the San Jose,
California assembly plant and fitted with a "Hi-Po" 289, 4-speed manual
transmission, and included front disc brakes and heavy duty rear drum
brakes. Additionally, shortened hoods and deleted rear seats with
identifying trim were among the visual variations. These select Mustangs were converted to street,
road racing, and drag cars in Shelby's plant at Los Angeles International
► 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 on the Track
The 392-cubic inch (6.4-liter) HEMI® V-8 delivers 470 horsepower (351 kW) and 470
(637 N•m) lb.-ft. of torque. The torque band is extremely flat allowing
for strong standing starts and improved straight-line performance
throughout the rpm range. An advanced active intake manifold along with
high-lift cam with phasing provides maximum low-end torque and high-end
power while still delivering up to 23 miles per gallon on the highway with
the standard manual transmission. Performance-tuned engine mounts improve
idle stability and ride control at all speeds.
Standard Fuel Saver Technology (four cylinder mode) in automatic
transmission equipped models allows the engine to operate economically on
four cylinders or use the power of all eight cylinders when needed. The EPA
fuel economy miles per gallon (mpg) (City/Hwy) ratings for the 2012 Dodge
Challenger SRT8 392 are 14/22 for automatic transmission models and 14/23
for manual-transmission models.
A look under the hood reveals unique valve covers with painted silver ribs

The 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 features a standard Tremec TR-6060
six-speed manual transmission and a dual-disc high performance clutch -- a
proven performer that was first offered on the 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10®.
The optional five-speed automatic transmission features new, standard
steering wheel mounted paddle shifters that join the center console mounted
Auto Stick, allowing for a choice of spirited shifting on both the road and
the race track. Both methods give the driver the ability to manually select
specific gears on the transmission.
In "Drive," the transmission controller will automatically shift the
vehicle. The aggressiveness of the shifting is defined by the mode chosen -
either "Normal" or "Sport." Fully adaptive electronic control of all
shifting makes the powertrain more responsive while minimizing harshness.
In "Manual," the shift method is defined by the driver choosing to use
either paddle shift or Auto Stick. The "Sport" mode adds a hold function to
the calibration in all gears, allowing the driver full control of the
