Description

When this 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 Supercharged monster hit the streets, it was the hottest thing on four wheels. I'll wager that the original buyer paid well over sticker price to own it, because it represented the rebirth of an American legend. This particular car itself is a lesson in automotive history, simply because Chrysler was teetering on the edge of bankruptcy oblivion in '08-'09, and the Challenger would ultimately bring the brand back. With a 6.1L Supercharged HEMI motor, a 6-speed manual gearbox, and only 25117 actual miles on the clock, this 1-owner modern muscle car check all the boxes. If there's a late-model muscle car that will be collectable in the future, it's definitely this one.

The Brilliant Black paint with matte black stripes 'look' was a combination Mopar fans absolutely begged for in the reintroduction of the Challenger, and even though the public was teased with so few units at first, it was adored by fans all over the globe. This was the car every Mopar guy wanted to own as they impatiently counted down the days until it was available in the showroom, and many buyers paid well over MSRP for the opportunity of getting high up on the waiting list. This 1-owner beauty has lived a life of pampered privilege, carefully tucked away under the tutelage of a very conscientious owner that kept it out of harm's away, always stored in a climate-controlled garage. It shows an incredibly low 25117 original miles, so you know it's been a fair-weather toy that's basically just been shown and driven on weekends. The finish is in fantastic, showroom condition due to its limited use, although there's just no mistaking the intent of a car that looks like this. It was built to drive. The look has aged quite well in the last 13 years and you'll surely find that everyone still stops to watch this Challenger drive by. Keen observers will notice the upgraded front and rear fascia, along with the aggressive aftermarket hood complete with functioning vents, the SMS-style air dam chin spoiler, blacked-out front grille, Halo headlights, and the whale-tail spoiler out back. Those choice selections only add to the mystique of this SRT8, and they look so darn good I bet Chrysler engineers are kicking themselves for not thinking of these styling elements first. And again, it's all in excellent shape. The chin spoiler isn't all beat up by steep driveway aprons, the rockers haven't been blasted by debris, and you knew everyone's going to know what this car is all about when they see the T/A decals and 426 HEMI badges. Add in a set of chrome exhaust tips, subtle Challenger T/A badging, and bright red accents inside the hood vents, taillights, and those killer Lexani rims, and you end up with one of the slickest modern muscle cars we've ever featured.

The SRT8 showcased everything Chrysler could do for a driver, and based on the 300's platform, it's a lot more spacious than you'd expect. The deeply bolstered black leather-and-suede seats have grippy inserts and a red stripe (along with SRT stitching in the seatbacks), and you'd be hard-pressed to find much of a human footprint inside the cabin. You also got a fat steering wheel, big, round gauges with racy electro-luminescent faces (including auxiliary units in the A-pillar), and a quick-shifting 6-speed manual transmission controlled by that reimagined pistol-grip shifter. Of course, on this flagship Mopar with the Customer Preferred Package 21X, everything was included, including A/C, power windows, locks, seats, and mirrors, cruise control, keyless start, and a cool touch screen multimedia entertainment system with navigation that powers the 13 Kicker SRT High-Performance speakers, a 200W subwoofer, and 322W amplifier. This one also offers an optional sunroof, which is yet another rare option, and the power seats are heated, which makes a big difference on cool mornings. Everything works, there are no issues, and you can get in this car today and drive to California if you'd like. That's the power of modern technology.

By this point, the 6.1 liter HEMI V8 really needs no introduction. For the SRT8, they punched it out a bit to add the kind of low-end torque muscle car fans expect, and not even a vintage 426 Hemi could keep up with it. These cars are insanely popular and easy to modify, and this monster features a 3.8L intercooled Kenne Bell Mammoth supercharger, a 195mm throttle body, and a custom tune. The engine bay is tidy, highlighting the polished aluminum intake and supercharger, black HEMI coil covers, and polished cold-air intake system, and you can easily see that it's never done a commute in any weather other than pure sunshine. The big V8 starts quickly, idles properly, and has the kind of G-force inducing torque that most folks can't understand until they've driven a car like this. The 6-speed manual transmission means you can easily handle the huge horsepower, and it bangs off quick shifts when you're hustling but is unobtrusive when you're going easy. The 2009 model Challenger R/T model also ushered in a limited-slip differential and self-leveling rear shock absorbers from the factory, and to punctuate things this beauty was augmented with a tunable Eibach Multi-Pro R2 formula sports suspension, Hotchkis sway bars, and 2-point Speedlogix shock-tower braces in the front and rear that stiffen the body. Big Brembo disc brakes at every corner keep it safe and the custom Lexani 22-inch wheels are the perfect endcaps, wrapped in low-profile Pirellis with plenty of grip.

An apex predator, this Challenger offers a TON of performance for a very reasonable price. With a few choice upgrades and great preservation, this low-mileage collectable beauty is THE modern muscle car to own. Call today!
