Six hundred horsepower? Check. Six-speed manual? Check. Beefed-up performance suspension? Check. Corsa cat-back exhaust? Check. Twenty-inch BBS wheels? Check. If you like that roll call wrapped in a Chrysler Challenger body, then SpeedFactory has the car for you: the SF600R, with a 6.1-liter Hemi bored out to seven liters even (426 cu. in., in celebration of the classic Hemi displacement). No turbo gimmicks, just naturally aspirated muscle that puts the Challenger this close to saying, "I must break you." Ivan Drago would be proud.
If, though, you only dig the wheels, then you'll still want to get in touch with SpeedFactory since it's the exclusive distributor for BBS flow-formed CHR road wheel. Follow the jump for the details on tSpeedFactory's $73,900 ride and its rims, and be sure to check out our high-res image gallery below.

SpeedFactory Selected to be the Exclusive Distributor for the new BBS Flow-Formed CH-R Road Wheel
Atlanta, May 5th, 2010 – SpeedFactory, the leader in modern Mopar supercars, has been selected to be the exclusive distributor for BBS's new flow-formed CH-R road wheel for all Chrysler and Dodge applications.
The prototype CH-R road wheel for Chrysler/Dodge applications was first introduced to the US market when it appeared in Mopar Alley on SpeedFactory's 700HP "SF700R" Challenger at the 2009 SEMA Show.
The BBS designed and manufactured CH-R wheel employs the company's pressure cast and flow-form technologies to achieve a superior stiffness-to-weight ratio and is used on factory built race cars from Ferrari and BMW. The CH-R features back milled spokes, laser etched 'Motorsports' lettering on the wheel center and a unique stainless steel rim protector.
Available as a direct replacement for the factory wheel on the new generation Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger in 20" X 9" dimensions, the CH-R allows current owners to retain the stock OEM tire. It is also available in a staggered format with a 20" X 9" front wheel and 20" X 10.5" rear wheel that enables owners to run an even wider rear tire, up to 295 X 35 X 20. SpeedFactory will offer the CH-R in 'satin black' as well as a 'diamond silver' finish.
Mike Brillanti, President, SpeedFactory Cars on the collaboration with BBS says "superior high performance parts are a prerequisite to building a SpeedFactory supercar and we required a wheel that was very stiff, durable and as light as possible. The BBS developed CH-R is all that plus it's a tremendous value. It adds a serious motorsports edge to our cars .....We're thrilled to be the exclusive distributor and to be able to offer the CH-R to all our SpeedFactory customers "
The SpeedFactory CH-R, in both satin black and diamond silver, retails for $749.
