Audi TT RS vs. Dodge Charger SRT8

An Audi TT RS goes against a Dodge Charger SRT8 in a quarter-mile drag race in Germany.

This isn’t set up like the drag races we see here in America, but in the event you can’t tell who won, let’s just say American muscle prevailed.

2013 Dodge Charger SRT8 gets 392 Appearance Package

Spring-Fest-Charger11


From Drivesrt.com:

The Spring Festival of LXs, better known as Spring Fest, has become the premier annual celebration of LX-platform vehicles for SRT® and Chrysler brands. With owners from across the world gathering in Irvine, California, the event presents the perfect canvas for SRT to introduce special editions of vehicles. This year was no exception as SRT debuted a special-edition Charger 392 appearance package during the eighth annual edition of the event.

Mark Trostle, Head of SRT Design, was at Spring Fest to reveal the Charger 392, which was shown in TorRed with black accents on the hood and roof and sporting the iconic ‘392’ badge on the front fender. The 392 fender badge is gloss black with a gray insert within the 392. The interior of the Challenger 392 introduced at Spring Fest features a serialized dash plaque on the instrument panel.

“It’s a cool package,” said Trostle. “When you think of old school muscle cars, you think of black accents and this car kind of handles that in a new way. Not the whole hood is black, just a portion of it and we’ve done it in gloss black versus a matte black. It definitely has a presence to it.”

The Charger 392 that was unveiled at Spring Fest rolls on black Vapor Chrome wheels, which are a signature to the SRT brand with the Chrysler Group family of vehicles. Also, adding to the “tough” look of the car is the fact that the hood bulges are painted in black, giving the hood a two-tone look and finish. The roof and rear spoiler are also black, as are the mirrors. A heavy accent-traced stripe with a decal starts at the front fascia and runs to the corner of the rear fascia and reads “SRT.”
“The stripe and decal complement the black on the upper side of the car really well and ties into the black on the wheels,” said Trostle. “It creates a really cool look. Plus, it has the badging of SRT on the side as well.”

To match the ‘392’ moniker on the 392 Charger, a limited run of 392 cars will be produced beginning later this model year. Available colors will be: Bright White, Billet Silver, Plum Crazy, HEMI® Orange and TorRed.

Chrysler to Auction Sergio Marchionne’s 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 and Mopar’s Latest HEMI V-8 Crate Engine to Benefit United Way

From Chrysler.com:

In support of United Way for Southeastern Michigan (UWSEM), a package of Chrysler Group Chairman and CEO Sergio Marchionne’s customized 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 and Mopar’s latest HEMI® V-8 crate engine will be auctioned with all proceeds going to UWSEM. The auction will take place during the Barrett-Jackson auction in Palm Beach, Fla., April 4-6, 2013.

This special contribution runs concurrent with United Way’s annual community giving campaign that was launched in September with a $35 million fundraising goal for the organization. Marchionne, who serves as Campaign Chair for the campaign, helped kick-off the annual campaign on Sept. 14 with a symbolic torch lighting ceremony on Detroit’s Hart Plaza.

“It gives me great pleasure to thank Sergio Marchionne and Chrysler Group for their commitment to Detroit and its surrounding communities,” said Michael J. Brennan, President and CEO of United Way for Southeastern Michigan. “Through the generous support of those who open their hearts and wallets during the Barrett-Jackson auction, United Way can capitalize on the ability to accelerate the impact of its work in three interconnected areas: education, income and basic needs.”

Marchionne’s personal, one-of-a-kind 2011 Pitch Black Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 features a set of custom mixed “Dark Charcoal” racing stripes that were hand laid by the designers in the SRT brand design studio and applied by the master painters from the Chrysler Group’s Product Design Office.

The Challenger SRT8 392 has been lowered using a Mopar adjustable coil-over suspension kit to add even more performance attitude to its aggressive stance. The car also features a Mopar exhaust system. The SRT designers wanted a sinister look from every angle, so the tail lamps have been “smoked” and the iconic 392 HEMI® fender badges have been re-created in gloss and satin black finishes. The factory forged 20-inch-by-9-inch wheels have been finished in matte black to complete its menacing looks.

The interior features custom-trimmed black leather seats embroidered with SRT and 392 logos. Inside the instrument cluster, the SRT-exclusive Electronic Vehicle Information Center with performance pages provides the driver with trip information, multimedia information from the Media Center radio, along with instant feedback for 0-60 mph, 60-0 mph braking, one-eighth mile and quarter-mile elapsed times along with various G-force measurements.

As equipped from the factory, Marchionne’s Challenger SRT8 392 is powered by the proven 392-cubic-inch (6.4-liter) HEMI V-8 engine that pumps out 470 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque across a wide rpm range while still delivering up to 23 miles per gallon on the highway with its six-speed manual transmission. This legendary V-8 has gained some serious technology over the years and now features an active intake and an innovative cam in cam variable-cam timing that manipulates timing and overlap. Like the original 392 HEMI models from Chrysler Group, this Challenger backs its road presence with performance numbers such as 0-60 mph in the high 4-second range and quarter-mile elapsed time in the high 12s.

Mopar’s newest all-aluminum crate engine – the Gen III 426 HEMI V-8 is rated at 540 horsepower and 530 ft.-lbs. of torque for the buyer who wants even more hard charging horsepower from under the hood.
