Dodge will also add a Hemi ChallengerChallenger R/TDodge Challenger R/TUnited States of America, 2011 > present3 photos
R/T Redline that upgrades the standard car's trim.

Challenger SRT8 Core

The Challenger SRT8 Core will get a black grill, black spoiler, 392 decal on the front fender, 20in wheels and Brembo brakes. Inside, it gets cloth sport seats with grey bolsters and a fake carbon fiber instrument bezel. Power still comes from the 6.4-liter (392in³) with 470hp and 470lb-ft of torque with cylinder deactivation and either a five-speed manual or automatic transmission. The car gets to 60mph in about 4.8 seconds. Prices will start at $39,995, plus a $995 destination fee. In comparison the current base SRT8 costs $44,775, plus the $995 destination fee. 

300 SRT8 Core

The 300 SRT8 Core uses the same specification at the Challenger including the same engine, wheels, Brembo brakes and interior. The differences over the Challenger SRT8 Core are that the interior gets piano black trim instead of carbon fiber. Performance is also the same as the Challenger. 

Prices for the 300 SRT8 Core starts at $43,995, plus a $995 destination fee. The standard 300 SRT8 starts at 48,995, plus a $995 destination fee. 

Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee

SRT also introduced the 2013 Dodge Charger SRT8 Super Bee, which is essentially the Core model of the Charger. The car gets a unique SRT badge with a 3D-helmeted bee mascot on black the crosshair grill. There are 392 HEMI badges on the front fenders and Super Bee graphics on the rear fenders. Other upgrades include five-spoke 20in wheels and Brembo brakes. 

Power also comes from the 6.4-liter Hemi with the same 470hp and 470lb-ft of torque with cylinder deactivation. It also takes about 4.8 seconds to get to 60mph. 

Prices will start at $41,995, plus a $995 destination fee. The standard SRT8 Charger starts at $45,995, plus a $995 destination fee. 

Dodge Hemi Challenger R/T Redline

The Hemi Challenger R/T Redline combines the 5.7-liter version of the Hemi V8 with 372hp and 400lb-ft of torque with cylinder deactivation and either a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission. The car gets an upgrade to trim to be a bit more luxurious but does not add much to the performance. 

The car gets a two-tone paintjob in Redline Red with a Graphite stripe over the front wheel arches to the rear and a Redline decal on the rear. It also gets 20in Black Chrome wheels.

The interior gets a dark slate gray interior with dark slate gray performance seats or optional Nappa leather sport seats in red or gray. It also gets Chrysler's Uconnect infotainment system with Bluetooth, a 160mph speedometer, fog lights, remote start, aluminum covered pedals and T-handle shifter on the five-speed automatic. 

The package can also be added to the R/T Plus to add leather, heated seats, six-speaker stereo, heated mirrors, tire-pressure monitor, exterior temperature gauge and rear park assist. 

The package adds $1,995 to the Challenger R/T and R/T Plus, which brings the price to $31,990 and $33,990 respectively, plus a $995 destination fee. Sales will begin in April.
