Big, brash, and all-American, the Dodge Charger is the perfect platform for the company’s Street and Racing Technology division to make even brasher. Just like any muscle car, classic or modern, the place to start is under the hood, where a bored-out 6.1-liter HEMI® V8 resides. With 425 horsepower on tap, the Charger definitely isn’t hurting for power—the motor is stout enough to pull the two ton sedan to 60 mph in an even five seconds. For a stonking, rubber-burning, unapologetically muscle-bound bruiser, it makes a respectable showing in the twisties thanks to a plethora of suspension changes and an independent rear end (shared with all rear-drive LX platform cars). With all that thrust and momentum, be thankful that the brakes are gargantuan and up to the task of stopping the Charger at will. Its more-aggressive looks also add to the overall feel, including a bold and functional hood scoop crafted in a wind tunnel to channel cold air to the motor without creating lift. The Charger SRT8 is perfect for practicing powerslides, so find a wide course and hang the sculpted rear flanks out to see what this bad boy’s all about.
