Along with the new 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT10 Concept, Dodge will be showing the Challenger Blacktop and the Challenger Targa at the 2008 SEMA Auto Show.
The Dodge Challenger Blacktop is based on the Challenger R/T equipped with a 5.7L HEM V8 and a 6-speed manual. Mopar Underground added a custom-made spoiler and front brow and finished the look off with black-on-black racing stripe paint and 22-inch Dodge Viper wheels wrapped in Dunlop tires. Performance wise Mopar added a coil-over suspension, strut tower brace, a cat back dual-exhaust and cold air intakes.
The Dodge Challenger Targa is a competition car that took part in the Targa Newfoundland race this year. Based on the Mopar Challenger drag race car, power comes from V8 392 HEMI producing 540-hp with a maximum torque of 490 lb-ft mated to a Tremec 6-speed manual. Stop-Tech brakes provide the stopping power with 6-piston calipers in the front and four-pot calipers in the rear. The race suspension and brake upgrades come from the Viper ACR which holds a Nurburgring record of 7:22.
