Slammed Charger SRT8

Check out this Charger SRT8 kissing the asphalt. This style may not be for everyone but you have to admit, it certainly has presence. The lowering came thanks to a Universal Air suspension with BC coils and custom rear arms from Jay’s Hot Rods. The wheels were custom made by Avant Garde. Sized at 21×10.5-13 up front and 21×12.5-23 in the rear! Find more detail at StanceNation. More pictures after the jump!

Reader’s Rides: Doug and Glenda Young’s 2010 Plum Crazy Challenger SRT8

I just got this cool pic of these two late model Challengers nose to nose. Here’s the word from Glenda:

We live in a small town in NE.  Our neighbor, Greg Wade purchased the black RT about 3 months ago.  We have owned the PCP challenger since 2010, bought it new off the showroom. It is a SRT8  6 speed w/hurst shifter, tinted windows, cold air intake and a few other extras.  Just thought I would share this.  Doug and Glenda Young own the PCP.  Love this car.

One more pic of Doug and Glenda’s PCP Challenger after the jump!

2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8 Core: 470 horsepower for Just $38,995

As DodgeForum points out, the 2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8 Core is the most powerful car you can buy under $40,000. Mopar has always been about performance bang for the buck and the Core gets you just that: basically a stripped down, no-nonsense SRT8 Challenger. Here’s how the guys at SRT describe it:

The new 2013 Challenger SRT Core vehicle stands out thanks to its black grille and functional rear spoiler, ‘392’ badge on the front fender and 20-inch cast aluminum five-spoke wheels with black-painted pockets. Brembo® brakes stay and are finished in black for a more understated appearance. The SRT Viper lends its ballistic cloth material to the Challenger SRT Core for aggressively bolstered seats in Dark Slate Gray. Door inserts are finished in an “Axle” textile and a mini-carbon bezel instrument panel completes the appearance.

We describe it as everything you want, and nothing you don’t need. Build yours here. Pic of the Plum Crazy 2013 Dodge Challenger SRT8 Core via Challengertalk
