The Dodge Challenger SRT8 is a high performance variant of the Dodge Challenger produced between 2008 and 2012.

The Challenger was first introduced as the limited production 2008 SRT8 model of which 6400 units were sold. In the following year, the SRT8 entered full-scale production and was complemented by additional models.[1]

Dodge equipped the SRT8 model with a 6.1 litre Hemi V8 engine that could be combined with a 5-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission as standard.

Also equipped as standard to the SRT8 are Brembo brakes, a sport suspension, bi-xenon headlights, heated leather sport seats, a Sirius satellite radio, and 20-inch forged aluminium wheels.

The car was replaced in 2012 by the Challenger SRT8 392 which features various upgrades including a larger displacement engine.

Games

Need for Speed: Nitro

The Challenger SRT-8 is featured in Need for Speed: Nitro as a class A muscle car. It is rated 4 in both speed and strength; 2 in both acceleration and handling; and 3 in drifting.

Thiago, the top racer in Rio de Janeiro, drives a Challenger SRT-8 in all of the location's Gold Cup race events except for the Drift Challenge, Time Attack, and Speed Trap events.

Unlike his Type 2 and Charger R/T, a Challenger SRT-8 with a unique livery, instead of Thiago's Challenger, can be unlocked as a collectable car for use in both Arcade Mode and Career Mode, once all stars are obtained in all Rio de Janeiro Gold Cup events.

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010)

The Challenger SRT8 appears in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) as an Performance Series racer vehicle, and as an SCPD Highway Patrol unit.

The racer vehicle is unlocked upon the player earning a total of 195,000 racer bounty. The SCPD unit is unlocked upon the player earning a total of 157,500 cop bounty. Purchasing the Limited Edition release will unlock the SCPD unit at the beginning of the player's career.

It is not as effective in race events as the 2010 Ford Shelby GT500, but is able to keep up with the Chevrolet Camaro SS and other Performance Series cars. The SRT8 can withstand most impacts due to its heavy mass, performing well in pursuits.
