The 425 horsepower (317 kW) and 420 lb.-ft. of torque (569 N•m) in the 2010 Dodge Challenger SRT8® are the result of SRT’s exclusive and proven 6.1-liter HEMI® V-8 engine, which represents the highest naturally aspirated specific-output V-8 engine ever offered by Chrysler.

Its 69.8 horsepower-per-liter rating exceeds even that of the legendary 1966 “Street HEMI.”

Exterior styling cues are unmistakably Dodge, with proportions that evoke a bold, instantly recognizable vehicle that has a wide, stable stance on the road. A full-width grille and fog lamps, reminiscent of the original Challenger, are married to the modern “Dodge performance attitude.” The result is an aggressive face that is unmistakably a muscle car. The hood—with a raised center, black stripes and functional dual scoops—stays true to the Dodge Challenger heritage, as does the A-line and beltline.
