Video: Fifth Gear reviews the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8

Earlier today we saw Fifth Gear getting behind the 2009 Volkswagen Scirocco. Now Fifth Gear gives us the first video review of the beautiful (if you’re into the muscle car thing) 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8.

We just had a big smile on our face when Tom said “This modern day muscle car isn’t being sold in the UK – pretty much because every American with a spare 20 grand is on the waiting list to buy one.”

Finally something the Europeans want that we have and they can’t get one. Check out our high-resolution gallery with new images of the Challenger SRT8.

Refresher: Power comes from a 6.1 liter HEMI V8 engine that produces 425 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. 0″“60 mph comes in at 4.9 seconds.
