Chrysler loyalists aren’t known for being complacent. In fact, the carmaker created the 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 in response to those who have been asking for more power.
The car offers an output of 470hp and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. Compared to the previous model with the 6.1-liter V-8 engine, this car produces 90 lb.-ft. more torque at 2,900 rpm.
The new car offers world-class ride and handling as well as high-performance braking. It also uses the latest technology that leads to an improvement in fuel efficiency. As a result, the car is impressive with .93g of lateral acceleration on the skid pad, far more than any production Challenger.
In addition, Chrysler will build 1,492 Inaugural Edition models of the Challenger SRT8 392, all with exclusive content.
The inaugural edition features two colors and new full-body stripe combinations that include Deep Water Blue with standard Stone White stripes or Bright White Clear Coat with standard Viper Blue stripes. In addition, a new front lip spoiler and a rear decklid spoiler are fitted.
The inaugural edition models are offered as standard with 20-inch SRT-exclusive wheels that feature a polished face and satin black painted pockets. The interior of the Challenger SRT8 392 Inaugural Edition has the standard Smooth Pearl White leather-trimmed seats and dual blue stripes emphasized by unique blue stitching.
Furthermore, the front seats have an embroidered "392" just under the headrest. For exclusivity, Chrysler provides the serialized "Inaugural Edition 392 HEMI" dash plaque, indicating the sequential build number from 1 to 1,492.
