Classic Car Overview
When the new Challenger R/T was announced, everybody and their mother lined up to own one. Its easy to find bone-stock examples that have zero miles and have only been wiped with a diaper. But say youre not into some faux investment scheme and just want a scary fast Mopar that isnt a Viper? Enter this 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T with a big honkin Kenne Bell blower. How does a Corvette-eating daily driver sound to you? This suckers not exactly subtle with that two-tone paint job, but then again, youd have to be deaf not to know something is up when it rumbles past. Torred was the cars original color, but the black accents and top side give it a long, lean, predatory look and we like the way theyve duplicated the vintage strobe stripes down the flanks. Although its been driven 22,323 miles, this car has always been a fair-weather toy so its extremely clean all around and the paint will still stand up to scrutiny at shows, which is a good thing because this thing is an eyeball magnet. For the most part, the Challengers good looks speak for themselves, and the two-tone treatment plays up the crisp folds in the sheetmetal, particularly the crease that runs along the sides of the car. The R/T package added a chin spoiler, decklid spoiler, and some somewhat menacing HEMI badges on the fenders, but even with all that advertising most guys wont know what hit them until its too late. To be honest, its worth buying the R/T package just to get the upgraded interior, including the ultra-comfortable bucket seats that grab you like theyre covered in Velcro. With horizontal pleats and custom embroidery, they continue the high-impact look of the exterior, just so you know youve got something special. Everything was standard, too, so that means stuff like power windows and locks, a powerful climate control system, and a thumping Kenwood stereo are all here. Its still just as comfortable as it was when it was new and if you can keep your foot off the loud pedal, its comfortable and easy to drive. White-faced gauges keep an eye on the vitals and youll be glad to have them, because when you crack the throttle on this one, things start to happen very, very quickly. Dont say we didnt warn you. The stock R/T is no slouch, packing 372 horsepower. But thats garden-variety these days so the guys at the Injected Engineering stuffed a giant 2.8 liter Kenne Bell Mammoth supercharger under the hood. That $10,000 supercharger is the heart of the upgrade, along with a custom air intake and supporting hardware to handle all the extra horsepower. To manage the extra air coming in, theres a custom-programmed Predator ECU that manages a set of upgraded fuel injectors that can easily keep pace with the superchargers propensity to make boost. All told, it makes silly horsepower, yet still starts easily, idles well, and is happy to putt around like a stocker. But sooner or later youll give in to the superchargers seductive torque and dump the throttle, at which point the transmission will slam down two gears and youll be hurtling forward at ludicrous speed. Its at that moment that youll be glad for the upgraded Eibach suspension and massive disc brakes. A Flowmaster Force II exhaust system gives it a unique sound, and it sits on gorgeous 22-inch Lexani wheels with staggered 265/35/22 front and 295/30/22 rear Nexen tires. So if youre tired of stock Mopars, this R/T is fully sorted with show car looks. Call today!
