2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 2dr Coupe (6.1L 8cyl 5A)
I've had my Challenger for 7 months now and I still grin when I get in it. The car always draws lots of attention; I've even had people take pictures of it at stop lights! The performance is stellar. I took it and my 540i BMW to the Miami Homestead Speedway for an all day race. My son drover the BMW and I drove the Challenger along with 20 or so other cars. I fully expected the BMW to out corner the Challenger but the reverse was true. The Challenger took the turns faster and more sure footed than the BMW and blew it away on acceleration. The brakes were truly awesome never fading in stopping this 4,200 beast. I passed several Corvettes and never once hinted of spinning it out. WOW
$100,000 of fun for $42,000. It's got the best of the 1970 Challenger with all the modern goodies. It's fast, torquey, comfortable and great looks. It also has a 5-star safety rating to boot!
The only thing this car needs to be perfect is a back-up camera. Those blind spots are tricky when backing up.
