They should make the SRT-10 Chellenger if they want to be King of 1/4 mile and kill the "750 hp Shelby Hot Rod"

I bet this this car will has slower lap times around laguna seca than GT500 SVT and Camaro ZL1 :D

If we go by price the SRT8 already is the answer to the ZL1 and GT500, but the Challenger is so heavy that it needed the 470hp on the SRT8 just to match the much cheaper Mustang and Camaro, while the base V8 that is in the same price bracket is a lot slower than them.

@Super8
Yeah it seems like Dodge is afraid to challenge the Gt500 and ZL1.
@......and Phavyarden
You might be right actually, I read a story saying it was lighter and had better suspension/brakes, but everywhere else it just says nicer wheels and paint finish...

The srt-8 392 is listed as 4300 lbs curb. This is listed as 4160. I don't know how it is lighter but according to Dodge's stats it is.

Jeff B can you post link that says this car is lighter and faster than the SRT-8 392. Not calling you a liar I just want to see for myself

@Phavyarden
It's a special edition along with the Super Bee Charger, reincarnations of the originals. It has upgraded brakes, suspension, interior, and has a reduced weight, better accelleration and top speed.
It uses the same engine, but is different almost everywhere else. :)

I hope they do that. Nothing personal Jeff B, but i don't know if this car should be on the site, it's basically a 392 with a different color no? Or it has something else(different suspension,etc). Same thing with Charger Super Bee.

They should put V10 from SRT-10 if they want to beat Super Snake
