2010 DODGE CHALLENGER SRT8

Powertrain

As with most SRT8 applications, the 6.1L HEMI kicks out 425 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque

Performance

The sprint from zero to 60 take s4.9 seconds with the car topping out at about 170 mph.Dodge also emphasized the Challenger’s braking and cornering abilities. Massive Brembo brakes squeezing slotted rotors and the car’s wide tires — size 245 up front and 255 out back — bringing the Challenger from 60 to 0 in only 120 feet. Additionally, the car can go from 0-100-0 in 16.5 seconds.

Despite the Challenger’s muscle-car image, it handles more like a midsize sports car. According to Dodge, the Challenger SRT8 cirlces the skid pad at .9 gs.

Design

Although the production Challenger is very close to the concept in design, there have been a few tweaks. Most noticeably, the Challenger has gained a B-pillar for structural reasons. Other less noticeable changes include taillights that have been divided into sections, a simplified grille, larger side mirrors, and more typical door handles.
