2008 Dodge Challenger Finally Official

With the 2008 Chicago Auto Show opening this weekend, Dodge made it official by finally revealing the production 2008 Challenger SRT8. Sporting a 6.1L Hemi V8 producing 425HP and 420TQ, 0-60 performance is expected to be in the low 5 second range and the quarter mile in under 14 seconds. Weighing in at over 4,100lbs and with a wheelbase 9 inches longer than a Mustang, it's a very big car. It will need every bit of stopping power provided by the 4 piston Brembo brakes behind it's 20 inch wheels. Unfortunately, the first bunch of cars off the assembly line will be five-speed autos with a manual arriving later.
