2012 Dodge Charger SRT8

The Chicago Auto Show is going on this week and there have been some cool introductions.  The first of which is the 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8.  Based on the newly redesigned Charger, this Hemi powered beast sports the new 6.4L V8 producing 465HP/465TQ but with better fuel economy due to a cylinder deactivation feature that will allow the big motor to run as a 4 cylinder when not under load.

Top speed is estimated at around 175 and 0-60 should fly by in less than 5 seconds with a 1/4 mile time in the 12s.

The suspension setup is comprised of active dampers that can change as needed and the brakes are big 14.2 inch in front and 13.8 in the rear. A new front fascia, 20 inch wheels, LED taillights, and huge dual exhausts take care of the visual excitement.  Inside, the car sports a new flat bottom steering wheel, nice seats and the requisite monster stereo/entertainment system.
