2012 Dodge Challenger R/T
2012 Dodge Challenger R/T
When it comes to pony cars, as was the Challenger's first outing, it wasn't early on the scene. In fact, it was one of the last pony cars of the Detroit Three to roll onto the scene and yet its lateness didn't make it any less awesome. The 426 HEMI engine, dubbed "the Elephant Motor," powered the Challenger, as did the smaller 2.2-liter Slant Six. The powertrain simply blew people away and made the Challenger not only rise but beat most challenges. Though this version lasted just five years from 1970-74, it remains one of the most powerful debuts in the automotive world.
For consignment, a simply amazing Challenger R/T, a garage kept car, with plenty of go fast goodies helping to make a dyno proven 480hp under the hood. This car has a good history with a clean and clear title, and perfect Carfax report. This car has been lowered for the right stance, supercharged, and sports a mere 27,920 actual miles and is ready to impress in our Hallowed Halls of Classic Auto Mall.
Meticulously cared for, played with and put away nicely for the next time, this favorite toy is in very good condition. Paint is wonderfully shiny and freshly detailed with a notable area of repaint work on the passenger's door just below the beltline. Otherwise it's just smooth metal all minding their gaps. Bathed in black with a black front wing hanging underneath the menacing black grille with just a hint of chrome, and a dual cowled hood with some sassy green R/T stripes flowing down onto the front quarters. With 3M clear bra coating over a body matching integrated front bumper and retro grille with LED lighting, this car retains a beautiful aerodynamic form. Matching sport mirrors on either side, and a small black spoiler on the trunk lid and we are ready to make some smoke. Big 20-inch Envoy wheels and medium low-profile rubber in 245/45ZR20 format are on all 4 corners. A black foe in the garden of eden we call the drag strip.
Black leather with tufted tuck and roll inserts, smooth bolsters and white stitching covers the front buckets and rear bench. These seats are in very good condition, with no stains, drips or errors, just a slight patina on the driver's left bolster. Ergonomically placed dash instruments, controls and steering wheel allow anyone of any size to get comfortable. All interior is shades of dark gray and black, and just a stunning combination to go with the exterior black. Comfort abounds in biblical proportions, especially in the center of the dash which holds the climate control dials, AM/FM/CD/Bluetooth stereo and a variety of push buttons all within a faux carbon fiber field. 4 round white faced gauges face the driver and these are fronted by a rally style steering wheel with more buttons than a Saturn V rocket. We note the addition of more white face gauges strolling up the driver's A-pillar as well as an aftermarket shift light. A black console races back from under the dash and holds the Barton short throw shifter as well as cup holders and an armrest/storage bin. Clean black carpeting floods the floors and peering upwards reveals a black broadcloth headliner framing the factory power moonroof.
The 5.7 liter Hemi V8, which is original to this car, has been modified for extra power. It has an intercooled Procharger P1SC1 supercharger and an open element air filter. This mill has been on the dyno, and it puts out 480hp. We note a polished insert on the black plastic engine cover as well as a Mopar Performance strut tower brace. This elephant is bolted to a Tremec TR6060 6-speed manual transmission and out back is a limited slip 3.92 geared rear axle. Kooks long tube headers blend into Kooks "Green" cats and flow rearward to a Hurst cat back exhaust and mufflers. We note the addition of an oil catch can and a 180 degree thermostat has been installed. Hell yeah!
Looking like it has barely been used underneath even with no road grime! No rust, just straight structurally strong steel, power disc brakes all around with Mopar Performance slotted rotors and heavy duty brake pads. Giving the stuck like glue ride is an independent coil spring front suspension and independent 5 link on the rear are noted. The ride height has been lowered with Eibach Pro Series springs and for some extra grip, Mopar Performance sway bars have been added.
This car lights right up upon turning the key and will go at any speed you want it to. It runs very smoothly, and when that supercharger kicks in...woooah horsies! It handles great and is overall a comfortable ride with all functions operational save for the boost gauge not registering boost. Love the seats…wicked comfortable!
With plenty of documented dyno power, beautiful retro lines, low mileage (27,920 original), and well kept, this is a recent classic you will not go wrong with. A speed demon that will give your friends a devil of a time trying to beat you on the arm drop. In fact give them a head start just so they seem to have a chance!
