Dodge Challenger SRT8 392

The Challenger has always been a heavy hitter at the box office, securing its place as a furi­ous muscle car for a couple of different generations. The 70s saw a white Challenger take center stage in Vanishing Point; meanwhile, today’s youth is cheering on a reborn Challenger in the Fast and the Furious franchise. It’s probably because the Challenger has always played the quintessential muscle car better than its pony-car competitors. It’s big, it’s wide, it’s heavy and its massive V-8 can rip through a pair of rear tires on command. Today’s 392, whose larger, 6.4-liter engine produces 470 horsepower and an equal amount of torque, will now be embedded in the brains of future generation for automotive enthusiasts, even if it may not be on the streets much longer. Rumor has the Barracuda, once a close relative of the Plymouth nameplate, being resurrected as a replacement with a new engine and sleeker styling.Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 photoDodge Challenger SRT8 392 backDodge Challenger SRT8 392 interior
