"Classic Muscle Car, Nothing More, Nothing Less."4.0 starson by jdc4aub
Pros: 392 Hemi and great styling make for a beautiful muscle car
Cons: Not a great daily driver (especially within a city) and not quick enough to compete well with other muscle cars
Summary: If you are looking for a head-turning modern take on classic American muscle, the Challenger SRT8 is probably the best car to do it in. While performance may be lacking when compared to the Mustangs, Camaros, Corvettes, etc. the Challenger is still quicker than the average car on the street and better looking too. This was not meant to be the daily driver of Mr. Beige working in cubicle 112 either, it is a mean machine that requires work to make it go. One may ask then, why buy it? The stereo is only average, the car is big and heavy, performance numbers don't match the price, why would one want a Challenger? Two reasons, and for a true fan of cars, they are the only two needed. It's a HEMI and it's MOPAR Muscle. The potential buyers of the Challenger SRT8 aren't interested in fuel saving technology, new electronic functions, or noise isolation; no they care about a big engine, a manual transmission, and driving a stunning car. If you are looking for a car easy to drive around the city or one that will give you the best lap time no matter what, look away from Dodge in general; however, those that just want a fun car reminiscent of the golden age of automobiles with the touches of modern technologies, the Challenger just might be the answer.
