    The opportunity for SRT engineering to "one-up" itself comes to fruition with the Dodge Challenger SRT10 Concept. Power for the car comes from the Dodge Viper 8.4-liter, all-aluminum V-10 engine with 600 horsepower and 560 lb. ft. of torque. It's a vehicle that delivers the well-known SRT credo of benchmark performance. The Dodge Challenger SRT10 Concept includes a fresh coat of Tornado Red paint with a carbon-fiber deck lid and hood. The "shaker hood" is a nostalgic representation of the 1970 HEMI Cuda, giving the 600-hp Viper V-10 engine room to breathe. Brakes have been upgraded and BILSTEIN® shocks at all four corners improve handling balance. The interior boasts sport seats and carbon-fiber accents throughout and, of course, true to the Viper-powered vehicle lineage, a red engine start push-button in the dash.

    Dodge heads to SEMA with trio of concepts
    By GREG MIGLIORE

    A Viper V10 breathes underneath the carbon-fiber hood of the Dodge Challenger SRT10 concept.

    The Chevrolet Camaro is the official car of SEMA this year, but the Dodge Challenger isn't shrinking into the shadows.

    Dodge plans to show three tricked-out versions of its modern pony car, and they're all pretty wild in their own way.

    The headliner is the Challenger SRT10 concept, which takes the best parts of a Viper and stuffs them into a Challenger chassis. Drooling yet? You should be. The car gets the Viper's 8.4-liter all-aluminum V10 that pumps out 600 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque.

    The concept's carbon-fiber hood is capped off by one of the most recognizable Chrysler design cues that is a not-so-subtle hint at its performance--a shaker hood scoop that looks like it was taken from a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda.

    The brakes are upgraded, and this pony-car-on-steroids gets Bilstein shocks for handling. It's topped off with a paint job that Dodge calls Tornado Red.

    Nearly as cool is the Challenger Blacktop. This car started off as a regular 5.7-liter V8 Challenger R/T, and gets a smoky, mafia-style upgrade. The front gets a pronounced lower brow, and it rides on 22-inch Viper wheels (notice a theme here). A cat-back dual exhaust and cold-air intake help this monster breathe easy.

    Handling is helped by a coil-over suspension and strut tower brace. Inside, there's leather seating and a Mopar audio system.

    The third car has a competitive streak--the Challenger Targa. It, too, borrows from the Viper parts bin, grabbing the race suspension and brakes from the Viper ACR. The scooped hood teases the 560 hp and 490 lb-ft of torque that lurk beneath it from a 392 Hemi crate motor. It's mated to a Tremec six-speed gearbox, and the car gets Stop-Tech brakes.

    The performance pedigree comes from the car's competing at the Targa Newfoundland race earlier this year. It's painted snakeskin green. Dodge calls this car "Samantha," and we'd sure like her number.

  9. scoop looks like pig nostrils to me......and the challenger is such a tall car that the rear tires look too thin.
     
  10. I was just thinking they should do this last night when i saw a challanger on the road. it looks like shit from behind on the road, its so god damn big.
     
  11. I wonder if it stills weighs two tons
     
  12. Yes, but now it can beat a Ford Taurus in 0-60.
     
  13. i lol'd
     
  14. The way muscle cars were meant to be built. Butt ugly and ungodly powerful.
     
  15.  
  16. haha it looks like a pig with that intake.
     
  17. And only go in a straight line.
     
  18. I'm going as well.
     
  19. I wish I could go to SEMA, I even live in Vegas.
     
  20. I wish all Challengers had a stance like this one but...

    Air Dam + Slitter + Pig Nose.....you serious?
     
  21. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
     
  22. except STDs
     
  23. an automatic actually fits the car for once
     
  24. The nose fits teh weight
     
  25. And it fits the Hemi Challenger heritage.
