It is not over with the freak V8 power that Dodge is currently pouring over its models. This time it is the Challenger whose strongest variant is just a bit more powerful.
The Challenger is Dodge’s model in the front row when a new high-performance variant is introduced. The two-door sedan, which dates back to 2008, was already fitted with a Hellcat suit in 2014, with which the car got a more than 717 hp and 880 Nm strong and supercharged 6.2 V8. That Hellcat version had to recognize its superior in 2017 in the Challenger Hellcat Demon, a temporarily available variant with a variant of the same eight-cylinder under the hood that has been whipped up to more than 840 hp and 1,040 Nm. A year later, the Hellcat Redeye variant with an 808 hp and 958 Nm strong version of the V8 also came to strengthen the ranks. The Demon has been discontinued, but Dodge is easing the pain by now presenting the SRT Super Stock.
The Challenger SRT Superstock is in theory just a Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, although the V8 gets some power and now stamps 818 hp to the rear wheels. A sprint to a speed of 97 km / h (60 mph) is therefore done in just 3.3 seconds. Its top speed is 270 km / h. Like the Hellcat Redeye and the discontinued Demon, the SRT Superstock gets the Widebody option, widening the wheel arches. It should come as no surprise that Dodge provides the lightweight 18-inch alloy Challenger with extra powerful braking to properly calm the horny monster. Extra sticky rubber is available so that the Challenger SRT Super Stock can also be used on the drag strip.
Here too, this extremist does not come to the Netherlands via the official channels.
