Before you get your hopes up, it is just a black car with red stripes...

Anyway, I bought it a few weeks ago, and finally got around to posting some pictures.

It's a 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8

...anyway, I really did not want the red stripes (sorry black and red fans), so I had them replaced with white...

I know it seems wasteful to buy a car with a stripe just to replace the stripe with a different color, but I did it that way for 2 reasons...

1) For some reason white is not an option in 2012

2) If I just bought a car with no stripe I would have had to wait 6 to 8 weeks

I should have probably just gone with silver, but I think the white looks pretty good. (the available colors for the stripe are silver, gray, red, black)

The MSRP in 2012 for the SRT-8 model starts around $46,000 USD, but somehow the price climbs a bit higher than that. And unfortunately no dealer will negotiate that price either.

The Challenger was originally around in the 1970s, but they stopped making them in the early 80s. I was not alive back then, and I was never interested in that car. But when Dodge reintroduced the Challenger in 2008 I instantly wanted one. Well, 4 years later and I finally got one!

Some numbers if you are interested...

Engine: 6.4L V8
Power: 470 HP (350 kW)
Torque: 470 ft-lbs (637 Nm)
0 to 60 MPH (0 to 100 kph): under 5 seconds
1/4 mile (0.4 km): mid-12 seconds
Fuel economy: 14MPG city, 23MPG highway (USA gallons)(6 city, 9.75 highway km/L)

After owning it for a little over 3 weeks, I really think I made the right choice by going with the car :) I was really tempted to pick up a Ford Mustang (hadn't decided which one), but in the end I felt the Challenger looked cooler and had a nicer interior.
