Yes its news to us too. Chrysler has previously said on many occasions that the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 has been sold out and that anyone wanting one will have to wait until the 2009 iteration of the car. Some Chrysler dealers still have the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 on their lots – including a dealer in northern Macomb County, Michigan that has 19 units for sale.
According to Chrysler spokeswoman Curtrise Garner, 6,400 limited-edition Challengers were ordered by customers when they were being built, but a quarter of the cars were set aside for dealers.
An ad for the Chrysler dealership in Macomb count showed off the dealers nine black, eight orange and two silver Challenger SRT8s. So far the dealership has sold just one with four more to arrive within days. Of course dealers are raking in the extra premium price. On its Web site, Huvaere priced the Challenger SRT8 at $45,145 – a $7,000 premium over the MSRP.
“We’re negotiating each price with the individual customer,” Simpson said. “We’re not getting a huge amount over sticker.”
Right – and this is our “we believe you face.”
