Dodge Challenger SRT10 Concept Headed for 2008 SEMA Show

No, the Dodge Challenger SRT10 concept doesn’t have a Hemi – but that’s a good thing.; Instead of the 6.1-liter V-8 found in the SRT8, this one-off special has the heart of a Viper.

Sitting between the front fenders is the Viper’s 8.4-liter aluminum-block V-10, good for a whopping 600 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque.; That’s plenty of power, although we’d like to see how it moves the Challenger’s 4140-lb heft around.

Thankfully, the concept – a one-off build for the SEMA show – isn’t just placing the massive motor inside the car.; The folks at SRT also fitted larger brakes and adjustable Bilstein shocks at all corners.

Designers also saw fit to equip the car with custom 20-inch wheels, a front spoiler patterned after the Viper ACR, and a carbon-fiber shaker hood.; Inside, we’re told the car incorporates other Viper cues – notably carbon-fiber sport seats and a red dash-mounted start button.

Though we’ll see this car in all its glory at November’s SEMA show, we hold little hope for this insane muscle machine to reach production.
