For Sale: 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T in Lithia Springs, Georgia


Vehicle Description

From the days of the GTO, muscle cars have been little more than blank canvases on which gearheads can create their own masterpieces, and the latest hot rods from Ford, GM, and Chrysler are no exception. Take this 2010 Challenger R/T, which serves up a brutal silver shape with all the comforts of a luxury car. But to that already potent package, an enthusiast has added some upgrades, creating a one-of-a-kind machine that stands out among its stock brothers.

The factory really nailed it when they brought the Challenger back to life, echoing the classic design but with modern design cues that make it more than just a retro wanna-be. Fortunately, this one landed in the hands of a passionate enthusiast, a Mopar guy to the core, who has taken immaculate care of the car since it was new. The silver paint is a refreshing change from all the Hemi Orange ones running around and it works especially well with the blackout hood treatment that extends over the roof and onto the deck lid. Actually, it's not even blacked out, it's a carbon-fiber stripe that makes the R/T look especially purposeful. The R/T is easy to spot with its vented hood and hash marks on both front fenders, as well as a subtle rear spoiler, all of which remain in as-new condition. In fact, the car hardly has a mark on it, which shouldn't be surprising with only 17,808 miles on the clock.

When the original Challengers were built, even Cadillacs weren't this luxurious. Grippy two-tone leather buckets offer '60s styling and matching Silver embroidery on the headrests, and there's almost zero wear to any of the seating surfaces. This car was optioned out with everything Chrysler could throw at it, including a navigation system with a screen in the center of the dash, as well as a state-of-the-art entertainment system that includes a pair of big subwoofers in the trunk. Bright carbon- and aluminum-look accents dress up the cockpit, including the steering wheel spokes, as well as the shifter for the 6-speed manual transmission. A complete array of back-lit gauges have an eerie iridescent glow, and you'll be thrilled to see that the big tach has a 6000 RPM redline. And as I said, the trunk is full of speakers, but there's still room for your gear if you're heading out on a road trip.

All that attitude isn't for naught, though. Under the hood is Chrysler's amazing 5.7 liter Hemi V8, which in 2009 cranked out 372 horsepower and more than 400 pounds of torque. But this is no ordinary Hemi. Not only has it been tweaked using things like a Mopar cold air intake and an SLP "Loud Mouth" dual exhaust system, but it still looks pretty stock under the hood. The modifications add up to more than 400 horsepower, which makes this R/T extremely potent on the street. But when you lift that hood, the wow factor takes over. The original plastic engine cover gives it a very tidy appearance and there's a heavy-duty strut tower brace overhead that sharpens handling. In fact, handling is this car's strongest suite, as the suspension has been upgraded with trick coil-over shocks and fat anti-roll bars at both ends, not to mention those awesome-looking 22-inch wheels with 265/35/22 steamrollers.

The look is classic and with the upgrades that are included on this Challenger, you can have all the fun of a new one at a fraction of the price. Call today!
