For the 2011 model year Dodge will be boosting the power of its American muscle coupe, the Challenger SRT8 392, thanks to the introduction of the legendary 392-cubic-inch HEMI® V-8 powertrain for the street.

According to Dodge the Challenger SRT8 392 “brings world-class ride and handling along with high-performance braking and the latest technology that delivers improved fuel efficiency.”

The 2011 car is fitted with new, highly damped shocks, which are responsible for the firm ride, being suited for daily usage or for more challenging situations. The suspension geometry was recaibrated by SRT engineers in order to improve Challenger’s balance, corning ability and steering responsiveness.

The performance SRT-tuned, fully hydraulic steering system has also been enhanced with a new, heavy-duty pump and revised gearing to give drivers more direct feel and on-center response.

To launch the 2011 model-year production, Dodge will build 1,492 Inaugural Edition models of the Challenger SRT8 392, all with exclusive content.

For those first 1,492 owners is offering unique customization which includes a livery featuring two colours and a new full-body stripe combination.
