Viper-Powered Dodge Challenger SRT10 Spotted In Public

If the 425-hp 6.1L Dodge Challenger SRT8 is too wimpy for you, Chrysler’s got an extra shot of testosterone for you. Spy photographers spotted a Viper-powered Challenger driving around Chrysler’s Michigan stomping grounds, bearing a remarkable resemblance to the Viper-powered car that made its debut at the 2008 SEMA show in Las Vegas, and featured Bilstein shocks, a big brake kit and a shaker hood scoop.

While Chrysler is not in the best financial shape, their Viper halo car is slated to die soon, and the Challenger is an iconic vehicle for the company. An SRT-10 Challenger could conceivably appear as a limited production model intended to give the company a morale boost. And considering Dodge already delivered an SRT10-powered Ram, a V10-powered Challenger is hardly a stretch.

Plus, with the 2011 Ford Mustang breathing down its neck, a V10 Challenger, with its 600 horsepower motor, would widen the gap considerably…at least until the rumored Camaro Z28 and the next incarnation of the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 appear.

    Please MOPAR Gods, Italian overlords, whoever PLEASE MAKE THIS CAR.

    THIS is the true MOPAR supercar we have been waiting for. The Viper is trying too hard to be Italian. We want an American supercar- and this SRT-10 Challenger is it.
