Challenger RT

The new Dodge Challenger RT “is only fractionally slower to 60 mph than the SRT8’s 5.5 seconds (5.2 seconds with 1 foot of rollout).” InsideLine takes this beast out for a road test after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

The difference lies in the higher redline of the SRT8’s 425-hp 6.1-liter Hemi, which enables the car to pull past 60 mph in 2nd gear. In comparison, the R/T requires a shift into 3rd gear.
