Challenger: Faster than a Speeding Bullitt?
The rebirth of the American muscle car is about a lot more than retro. It's
about pride. It's about recalling a time when Americans looked down the
road to the future with confidence, and they wanted a great big V8 engine
to get them there as soon as possible.
It's no wonder the 2008 Ford Mustang Bullitt has our respect. It's
the best version yet of the 2005 Ford Mustang, the car that set Detroit on
fire again with enthusiasm for good old American muscle. Maybe the
fuel-guzzling muscle car won't save Detroit from the challenge to build
cars that people need, but it's surely restored the domestic car industry's
confidence in its ability to do so. And it's shown that Americans can build
cars that are utterly unlike anything you'll find in Stuttgart, Shanghai,
Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur or any of those other places that economists think
they're so clever to know about.
Now that the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is here, Chrysler is cracking the
seal on its own Mopar-branded can of muscle-car whoop-ass to show that it
understands what's at stake in the muscle-car sweepstakes. The Bullitt and
the Challenger are the two coolest cars in America, and it's only natural
to bring them together.
FIRST DRIVE: 2008 DODGE CHALLENGER SRT8
Get more info on the Dodge Challenger SRT8 -
Challenger, the name says it all. With the Mustang as the King of the Road, and
with the media circus surrounding the upcoming Camaro, you couldn't find a more
suitable name for Dodge's new muscle car.
Challenger Drag Race! - SE vs R/T vs SRT8
MT Technical Director Frank Markus tests the three 2009 Dodge Challenger
variants - SE, R/T, SRT8 - with a three-way drag race and laps around our
figure eight. Read the story here:
Challenger New vs. Old: Vanishing Point Revisited
"Our sole Challenger has just broken the ring of evil the deep blue meanies
have so righteously wrought — get through 'em baby, get through 'em." —
Super Soul, Vanishing Point 1971
It happens deep in the Nevada desert, just past Austin. On a long, straight
section of road with nothing to lose, our friends in the white 1970 Dodge
Challenger R/T finally put the hammer down. At once, the rawness and purity
of Kowalski's ride pulverizes the well-insulated interior of our 2008 Dodge
Challenger SRT8, shredding the peace inside the modern car's cockpit with
the same brute force Kowalski used to pierce a hole in the cool desert air
38 years ago. Even with my right foot buried, I see nothing but taillights
until they disappear into the desert.
In these few brief seconds, the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is clearly
defined by its soft edges and quiet Exhaust. Manufacturers don't let us feel cars
raw and unfiltered anymore. Hammering down a desert road with a thin-rimmed
steering wheel and pistol-grip shifter — that's raw. Four hundred and
forty cubic inches and a four-speed — that's raw. Powerslides unhampered
by electronic intervention — that's raw.
In 1970, when Kowalski drove this very road — U.S. Highway 50 through
Nevada — he felt it. And it was raw.
Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 vs. Shelby GT350
Video of our muscle car showdown between the 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392
and the 2012 Shelby GT350. Only 1492 Challengers like this one will be
built, and Shelby has a cap of 2200, with only 500. Read the Dodge
Challenger SRT8 392 vs. Shelby GT350 photos and comparison test here:
Dodge Challenger SRT8 @ the Track
LEARN MORE ABOUT THE DODGE CHALLENGER SRT8:
The 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is a muscle car, right? An American muscle
car. So naturally, the first thing I want to do when I jump behind the
wheel is a big American smoky burnout.
"Not here," says Pete Gladysz, the Dodge guy babysitting our test car and
riding shotgun, as he looks around the leafy, tranquil residential street
we're on in the middle of Pasadena. "Wait 'till we get to the track."
Gladysz, powertrain senior manager for Chrysler LLC's SRT Group, sounds
serious. So I wait.

In our recent pony car comparison test, the retro-heavy — and just plain
heavy — 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS walked away with top
honors in its debut. The big V8-powered coupe needed a new challenge. It
was time to refocus the lens. Shoot from a different angle, so to speak.
So we squared the brooding visage of our SS-badged protagonist up against
the cruelest bunch of savages we could find, the range-topping 2009 Dodge
Challenger SRT8 and 2010 Ford Shelby GT500.

have a ton of stuff smashed into another awesomely funny/informative
episode. We'll head over to the Audi booth, but something is missing?!
Also, the extremely heavy, extremely fast, and EXTREMELY expensive Rolls
Royce Wraith. That new Subaru WRX Concept is looking sweet, but will the
production version look like that (probably not)? Also, a slew of stuff
over in the GM wing including the new Chevy SS, face lifted Camaro, new Caddy CTS, Buick
Regal, Buick LaCrosse, and a ton more! That's all today on Fast Lane Daily
with the usual fun FLD shenanigans from Derek D and the crew!

MORE MUSCLE CAR MADNESS @ INSIDELINE.COM:
In 2002, astronaut Buzz Aldrin, the second human being to set foot on the
moon, punched a guy in the face for accusing him of faking the moon
landing. Buzz was 72 years old at the time.
Go right ahead and question the existence of the 2010 Ford Mustang GT, 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T
and 2010 Chevy Camaro
SS and they, too, might just give you a knuckle sandwich in the kisser.
Like Mr. Aldrin, they bear names from long ago that have made a collective
return to the limelight. Like Mr. Aldrin, they are American heroes with
unparalleled legacies reaching across decades. And like Mr. Aldrin, they
have Ph.Ds in kicking ass.
Their makers may have proven that they have the financial acumen of a blind
yak. However, we submit these pony car icons as proof that the home team
can extract their craniums from their nether regions once in awhile and
knock the cover off the ball.
