2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8
Enjoy it now, muscle fans, because these are truly the golden days of horsepower. When you can buy a 425 horsepower Challenger SRT8 with a 6-speed manual transmission right off the showroom floor, take it to the track and run low 13s on street tires, then drive it home in air-conditioned comfort, you are saying something. With gas prices inching up, cars like these will soon end up on the endangered species list, so picking one up now while the getting is good is to your advantage.
Up for grabs to be plucked right out of our hallowed halls, we give you a 2009 Challenger SRT8. Our Consignor states it has the power of a Hellcat and has Dyno'd @ 580hp. This is achieved with a Procharger supercharger, Comp Cams camshaft and a Billet timing set. A race car that can be used on the track to eat the competition up, then drive it home in A/C comfort!
The white hat boys did a great job when they came up with the brainchild of reintroducing a classic muscle car design but with a more modern aero twist. Shades of the cars of yore though, with the stretched oval front grille with dual duals, integrated body matching bumper and a chin spoiler. The hood has a slight bump up with a T shape that includes 2 openings on the top side of the T for easier breathing. The sides of the car use a painted on solid ever widening spear culminating in a badged back panel that states “Procharged”. On the back the throwback design of a totally encompassing horizontal tail lighting system stretching from rear quarter to rear quarter. A small satin black spoiler is on the rear end of the short trunk deck, and below peeking out from under the rear roll pan are wide dual exhaust tips. 5 percent tinted windows are in, and on all 4 corners are aftermarket Hellcat 20-inch wheels.
Inside, the styling is a mix of old and new, remarkable for keeping everything in roughly the same place as the Dodge Charger while adding a unique personality and looking more upscale. It manages to carry off some suede inserts in the center of the molded door panels. Thin chrome bands highlight the four big cascading white faced gauges. As an SRT8, this car includes a “performance gauges” feature which provides the driver with performance data, including zero to sixty times, quarter and eighth mile times, g-forces, (both peak and instant), gas mileage, and braking distance. The dash front is made up of faux carbon fiber plastic and it gets pulled off by using a thin pattern mesh. The SRT8 naturally comes with a nice sounding music system complete with a CD Player. Overhead, there's a bin that holds sunglasses, and two dome lights; the day/night mirror is automatic, and a universal garage door opener is built in. Seats use charcoal leather for the bolsters and suede inserts, and run the center is a pistol grip shifter.
If you're a fan of whiplash-inducing torque and smoky burnouts, this particular SRT8 is the perfect tool for the job. The 6.1-liter Hemi V8 produces a towering consignor stated 580 horsepower. BUT for added enjoyment, when you want to get goosey with the boot, a Procharger P1SC-1 supercharger has been strapped on, along with Comp Cams featuring a 268H XFI Camshaft. For that extra hot 93 octane explosion a Billet timing set is on. On the back is a Tremec TR6060 6-Speed manual transmission and a 3.73 rear axle.
Of course any self-respecting daily driver to get the groceries come street fighter would look great underneath and this car does not disappoint. Still sporting the factory overspray on the floor pans solid rust free and jet black painted independent suspension for front and rear, and power disc brakes all around we are ready to roll. Oh, and lest I forget, long tube headers with a free-flowing dual exhaust are snaking their way to the back of the car.
It fires ups with a mighty roar, and off to the test track with lightning speed we go. Of course you can experience the G force inducing acceleration, great handling and boas free panic stopping you'd expect, but with all the comforts of home for that long Sunday cruise. All functions were just working swimmingly.
In the end, it turns out, this modern Challenger is vastly superior to its vintage namesake, with a fully independent suspension, massive Brembo disc brakes, and sophisticated traction control systems all working to extract every bit of performance from the tires. As with the rest of this car, the chassis is in factory fresh condition, and that extra power is nothing to shake a stick at. I have the look of love in my eyes.
