Even though last year's SEMA was ostensibly represented by the Camaro, it was Dodge Challenger City in the halls. To make sure the Challenger doesn't come up lame a year later, Speedfactory has taken a 2009 SRT8 Charger with a 6.1-liter Hemi aluminum block, bored that block out to 7.1-liters (440 cu. in.) and, among other tweaks, pasted a Vortech V3 centrifugal supercharger on top. The result is 700 horses when provided with 91 octane to drink.
To handle the boosted grunt Speedfactory has made a number of other modifications, including the installation of a Mopar Performance NAG 1 transmission and Getrag IRS with 1000 HP half-shafts. You can read get all the details in the release after the break and check out the Challenger in the high-res images below.
SpeedFactory to Debut the First All-Aluminum, Supercharged, 440 Hemi-Powered Challenger at the 2009 SEMA Show
SpeedFactory, a top-tier modern muscle car builder, will introduce the first modern supercharged, all-aluminum, 440 Hemi-powered Challenger at the upcoming SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, Nov 3-6, 2009.
The SpeedFactory prepared 2009 SRT8 Challenger is powered by a bored and stroked 6.1L Hemi Mopar aluminum block, increasing the displacement to 440 cu. in. (7.2 liters). It includes CNC ported Mopar aluminum heads and a completely forged rotating assembly. A Vortech V3 centrifugal supercharger boosts the output of this reliable, modern Mopar power plant to 700HP on premium-grade 91 octane pump fuel.
SpeedFactory performance modifications include Mopar Performance NAG 1 transmission, Mopar Performance fuel rails, Moroso coolant tank and oil pan, Getrag IRS with 1000 HP half-shafts, Corsa stainless steel cat back exhaust system, performance springs, sway bars, and additional strut tower braces, 15" Brembo 6 piston front disc brakes and Bridgestone R Compound tires mounted on 20" BBS Black Edition CH-R flow-formed wheels.
SpeedFactory's Signature interior package includes logo-embossed seat backs, matching door panel stripe with logo, custom floor mats, Mopar door sills and T-handle shifter. Visually, the exterior of the car has also been enhanced with a race-inspired, matte-finish, full carbon fiber hood and rear deck spoiler, as well as SpeedFactory Signature badging and graphics.
This car is part of SpeedFactory's research and development platform for its line of tuned, advanced engine, and supercharged modern muscle cars.
The SpeedFactory Challenger will be on display at the MOPAR Booth, #43127 , from Tuesday, Nov 3rd thru Friday, Nov 6th at the SEMA Show.
