2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 Pitch Black

2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 Pitch Black | Friends and Engines | Scoop.it
For the record, this isn't a special edition model, nor is it a new trim introduced by Chrysler.
zackary byrd's insight:
I've always felt the challenger needed just a touch more aggression and performance to push it over the edge and into the upper echelon of desirable sports cars. Maybe this new 426 hemi they're talking about with some suspension tlc is just what needs to happen. Can the challenger be a real sports car?
