Introduction

In 3 short weeks the greatest automotive trade show in the world. Every year Las Vegas hosts SEMA (Speciality Equipment Market Association) the largest show of its kind and this year is going to be full throttle with over 120,000 exhibitors taking part!

Keen to get some good publicity from the show, Dodge has today unveiled plans to preview the 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT-10 concept in front of the trade only audience.

So What's It All About

So what with all the fuss? Well as some people may know already, the famous SRT-10 currently in production is the Dodge Viper SRT-10 and no surprises for guessing that this Challenger Concept uses the same 8.4l V10 power plant!

That's 600 bhp and 560lb-ft of torque which in this front engine rear wheel drive car should result in some pretty impressive figures and as I'm sure you can see from the above photo on the Challenger concept, that's some serious tyre shredding power

This car is not all about mounting a massive engine in the front. Blistein shocks in each corner add to the control of the car (while attempting to keep all of that power on the black stuff) and some bigger wheels to hide some even bigger new disc brakes to stop it.

As is the trend these days with modified cars, especially concepts, carbon fibre is aplenty with a new hood (bonnet), engine vent and body kit making up the exterior tweaks. On the inside there's more carbon fibre and the addition of a large red button saying 'Start' on it.

Sadly there's no official word from Dodge on weather the Challenger SRT-10 will go into production. Some feel it's just a showing off exercise, others a possible Shelby Mustang GT500KR rival. Only time will tell.

Press Release

Auburn Hills, Mich."The opportunity for SRT engineering to "one-up" itself comes to fruition with the 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT10 Concept. Power for the 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT10 Concept comes from the Dodge Viper 8.4-liter, all-aluminum V-10 engine with 600 horsepower and 560 lb. ft. of torque. It's a vehicle that delivers the well-known SRT credo of benchmark performance. The Dodge Challenger SRT10 Concept includes a fresh coat of Tornado Red paint with a carbon-fiber deck lid and hood. The "shaker hood" is a nostalgic representation of the 1970 HEMI Cuda, giving the 600-hp Viper V-10 engine room to breathe. Brakes have been upgraded and BILSTEIN® shocks at all four corners improve handling balance. The interior boasts sport seats and carbon-fiber accents throughout and, of course, true to the Viper-powered vehicle lineage, a red engine start push-button in the dash."
