This first-year 2008 Challenger was a pre-order Challenger that features an early-numbered dash plaque and has been highly modified. It is powered by a supercharged 6.1-liter HEMI V8 engine that delivers over 600hp. The engine is mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission with Auto Stick. It makes the 0 to 60 mph sprint in less than 5 seconds and the 0 to 100 to 0 mph in under 12 seconds. The rear-wheel-drive coupe also has carbon-fiber-like hood stripes. This HEMI Orange SRT8 is factory-optioned a sunroof, navigation and a subwoofer Kicker stereo. Additional options include performance exhaust, brakes and suspension. This Dodge was completely repainted with two-tone paint with flames and had graphic work done under the hood. It has 10,281 actual miles.
