A remarkably comfortable take on the classic American muscle car with masses of power For some, the most important thing about a muscle car will be, well, muscle.
as well as for them the Dodge Challenger SRT-8 392 comes through, its 6.4-litre Hemi V8 delivering 464bhp as well as 470lb ft of neck-snapping torque.although spend a day behind the wheel as well as you’ll realise which what definitely matters will be which wonderful exhaust note. There’s a deep as well as menacing burble when you’re sitting at a light which becomes a raging roar the moment your foot hits the throttle.Despite the huge increase in American fuel prices, there’s still a viable market for performance, as well as the newly updated Challenger will be, for Dodge fans, a viable alternative to the incredibly well-known Chevy Camaro as well as familiar Ford Mustang.Don’t confuse This specific that has a European sports coupé. the idea’s bigger as well as badder as well as made for cruising. The Great news will be which with the press of a button, the soft as well as slightly ponderous ride will be transformed by the fresh adaptive damping system.the idea tightens up steering as well as handling in ways you’d never have imagined possible on a traditional American muscle car. You won’t catch a BMW M5 inside corners although will still hold your own. the idea’s a different story when the road straightens out, though.Meanwhile, there’s a surprising amount of room in This specific coupé, both front as well as rear; there’s room back there for three to ride in reasonable comfort.Complaints? The styling will be a bit too retro for some, although the real criticism will be reserved for the cabin, which needs the same level of makeover given to the fresh Chrysler 300 SRT-8 as well as Dodge Charger SRT-8.as well as the first two gears on our car’s six-speed manual were too notchy. although once you’ve negotiated which, the Challenger will be quick to plant power onto the asphalt.Overall, This specific will be a major improvement for 2012 which enhances the look, as well as the sound as well as fury, of the classic American muscle car.Paul EisensteinDodge Challenger
