2008 Dodge Challenger 392
Super Stock Concept
At this year's SEMA auto show Chrysler released another 2008 Challenger
concept car. Introducing the Dodge Challenger 392 Super Stock concept
car. This car features the re-birth of the legendary 392 Hemi. This new
engine sports between 525hp and 540hp! The Challenger SS concept sports
a tritone paint job. It has white as the base paint. Then the top half
of the Challenger is a bright blue. Finally it sports a stripe down the
side of the car that resembles the 1970 T/A Challenger's stripe or the
1971 Dodge Challenger's R/T stripe. Without the "R/T" and "T/A"
The 392 Dodge Challenger also shows some cosmetic changes from the
original 2008 Dodge Challenger concept. The front bumper is pushed out a
little farther, probably to help with crash safety tests. Also the fog
lights have changed to a more practical production version.
So will we see the new Challenger equipped with the 392 Hemi? Well with
the competing 500hp Ford Mustang and the new Camaro coming out, I can't
see how Dodge could afford not to. For the new Challenger to compete
they need more than just awesome cosmetics. They need to excel in
performance, too. Even more important then the Challengers performance,
though, will be the price that they set. And if they offer a V6 version
to get the car into main circulation.
