The Challenger is already an exciting proposition in R/T form, so why step up to the SRT8? The answer is that more is better. How about a full 50 horsepower more than the smaller HEMI-powered car, thanks to an extra 0.4 liters of displacement and modifications to the block and lubrication systems? Hard to argue about that, considering that the 6.1-liter engine sounds and feels so similar to the raucous muscle cars of old that it may as well be a time machine. Although, it’s not an exact recreation of the old muscle car experience—instead of creaky handling and indifferent build quality, the well-screwed together Challenger manages to wrangle its sizeable curb weight admirably around a road course, feeling altogether planted and secure, if not quite nimble. Credit that to the advanced chassis shared with its LX-chassis siblings, the 300C and Charger, who utilize their independent rear suspension to great effect. Overall, the Challenger SRT8 brings the best parts of an old formula to life in a new and exciting way.
