Dodge Challenger Convertible with 560HP to Debut at SEMA

|
Dodge Challenger Convertible AftermarketNo, Dodge has not finally made the decision to create of a drop-top version of its resurrected Challenger coupe. Then what's this? Well, since Dodge and parent Chrysler LLC have their own problems to solve, Coach Builders Limited, Inc. a Florida-based aftermarket cabriolet converter firm decided to take advantage of the automaker's lack of will (and money) by providing open-air enthusiast with an alternative, yet somewhat costly, solution. -Continued

The aftermarket Challenger Convertible will make its first public debut at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas with production set to begin in mid-November. Speaking with the folks at Edmunds, Coach Builders' Larry Moran told Insideline that the cabriolet conversion is priced at $16,000, meaning that a new 2009 Challenger SRT8 Convertible will cost you around $58,000.

The 'greenish' Challenger SRT8 Convertible on display at SEMA will be equipped with a Vortech supercharger that bumps the 6.1-liter Hemi V8's output from 425HP to 560 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. The vehicle will also ride on a lower KW coil-over suspension kit lower and massive 22-inch Foose alloy wheels.

Is SEMA having a required seventies dress code and hair style for entry this year to go with the new car releases? Are we allowed to smoke doobies while in attendance?

Holy cow! Too bad Cerebus can't shake the cash from the tree to do a drop top- body looks good without the roof! Bring the premium down to about 5k and I'd be ALL over this one. Guess I'll wait for the Camaro droptop.

CoachBuilders did a great job on this one. Car looks pretty bad-ass.

Fantastic looking car!

But Good Lord, what hideous wheels! Some modernized slot-mags would be so much more appropriate!
