Title: 09 running around in vegas
Post by: 72hemi on June 24, 2008 - 09:47:27 pm
My friends are in Vegas and saw this running on the strip. They said it was a manual transmission car.

I'll take that one!  Looks like Rallye Red to me!  And a manual, way cool!

That must be a 2009?  No stripe either, which is supposedly put on at the dealership.  Did it have a dealer plate?

I like the red!  Very sharp!  :grinyes:

 :clueless: What's the box on the dash???

My friends said that the box on the dash was some kind of computer. Definitely an '09 and I didn't ask if it had a plate. If it did it was probably a manufacturers plate.

I wonder if it was trully a manual or just the auto stick.

No he said it was a manual not an autostick and with as much of a car guy my friend is I believe him.

No, they come with it already on, but you can opt for stripe delete on an SRT.

Good place for hot weather testing.

Oop, my bad...  :misbehaving:  I was thinking of this thread by hannah, I guess it was mentioned that they weren't put on at the factory but at another facility, which one I dunno... if you look at the pics the cars don't have stripes.

Ahh man I have to wait even longer now for this one.

don't wait TOO long, remember the article says a convertible is not in the works at this time, and, if gas prices continue to increase, and the Challengers don't sell well, the convertible may be nothing but wishful thinking

I heard a rumor (through the usual chain from a guy whos brother is a design engineer at Chrysler :blah: ) that Chrysler is devolping a 600 hp (no that's not a typo) hemi Challenger for 2010. Whether it is naturally aspirated or not and what displacement he wouldn't say. But the plan is basically (from what he said) for Chrysler to sit back and have Ford say they have the most powerful and the best muscle car (Shelby GT-500KR) and then come out blow them out of the water.

I think they need a super horsepower challenger to compete with the mustang KR500

There are a couple private companies putting out their own modified models.

There will be 500hp and 700hp models coming from one company that I saw.

Was that Steve Saleen/SMS Motorsports or something like that?  Those will be very limit production, but I guess the KR500 will be also...

Leave it to the Challenger R/T with the 5.7L Hemi and the Mustang GT to battle it out on the streets!  I want to see a comparison of those 2 cars!  :burnout:

Toss in a new Camaro for the fun of it.  You know that a car mag will eventually to a test with all 3 cars.  :grinyes:
