click above image for 5 more high-res teaser pics!

Remember the teaser photos of the new 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 from the presales brochure that got posted to the web this week? Well, here they are, officially released from Chrysler in glorious hi-res. We are still loving that grille sans crosshair very much.

      This car has nothing to do with "old timers". It's one HOT car!! The auto designers recognize the feeling a great muscle car gives a driver. No bland "green car" averageness here. This is true Greatness a second time around!!

      Love the car. After driving having driven many orignal Challengers, I cant wait to have comfortable seats with A/C and no more rattles when driving. Like it so much may just sell my Superbird to get one

      Snore! Just another way for old, ugly, worn out, baby boomers who can't grow up to try and recapture their long lost youth.

      Age with some dignity, losers! I'm sure this ride will look cool with your botoxed faces and hair pieces down @ the Blue Boar for the 4:30 early bird dinner specials.

      At least they got the two doors right!

      Jeff,

      I was a car salesman, but I was not a "scumbag." In my experience, there are unscrupulous dealers and salespersons, but many times, the customers are just as shady. I can't tell you how many times I heard:
      "I've got great credit." Score -- 480.
      "I'm gonna put $5K down." Uhhhh... when the chips are on the table, this was usually a fold.
      "Let me go talk to the wife, I'll be back." That NEVER happened.
      I understand customers don't want to pay sticker -- hell, I didn't want them to either. I never wanted to myself. But a car dealership -- any dealership -- is a business, and they're going to try to make money. Some are unscrupulous about it, some aren't.
      As far as the Challenger goes, it's a damn nice piece. I just hope the interior is up to snuff. Hard plastic is hard to take at $40K.

        Everyone has to make money or the transaction won't work. Making a profit does not make someone a scumbag. If you feel that a dealership is taking advantage of you, leave. With the amount of information in the consumers' hand, the customer/dealer relationship is getting closer to equal every day. The dealer can train their people, but the consumer can vote with their feet.

        It can't be easy to make money as a car salesman.

      "The matte black paint is not a cost cutting measure. It a cue taken from the Trans-Am racers to prevent sun glare off of the hood and spoiler.

      Read some history before making uninformed posts."

      ...yeah, the sun glare from rear spoiler is usually a deal breaker for me too

      Get a life all you negatories; I have it's cousin the 2006 Charger--8 cyl. SRT and it is hot and a joy to drive. Don't like the new flat paint just give me some shine because that's why they make RayBans and cheap sunglasse-for the GLARE! Chrysler took good care of us when we worked out some little glitches as is usual with a squeaky clean new auto...I guess you can tell I'm happy to have it and when I see it in my garage sometimes I just need to go somewhere just because! Just one of the fun things in life that I am grateful to have. Cheers Challenger.

      My only wish is that Chrysler would pay homage to our wallets by making the SRT drivetrain and handling package available without all the extra weight of navigation systems, high end sound systems etc. Sans the GTX which was a bare bones performance car affordable to the average Joe.

      Can we PLEASE see a pic of one that isn't ORANGE... For Pete's sake!!

      Looks like they've changed the rear lamps after all. They are probably long/wide'ish pieces with matte black seperating them. Hopefully thats where the license plate will go.
