Geiger Car’s love affair with Detroit muscle continues with the German market launch of the limited run 2011 Dodge Challenger ST8 392 Inaugural Edition, of which only 1,492 examples are to be built. There is no word on how many cars Geiger Car’s managed to secure for the German market, but the starting price has been set at €55,000, which comes to around US$77,800 at the current exchange rates.
Under the hood of the latest Challenger SRT8 392 lies a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 delivering 470 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque, matched to either a standard five-speed automatic transmission with Auto Stick or an available Tremec TR-6060 six-speed manual gearbox. Dodge says the most powerful version of the Challenger series has an estimated top speed of 282 km/h (175 mph) and can complete the 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint in the high 4-second range, and quarter mile in the high 12-second range.
On top of the standard SRT8’s features, the ‘392’ gains exclusive exterior and interior content including 20-inch wheels, Mopar quad exhaust tips, aero parts and a two-tone leather interior. Buyers will have the choice of two colors -Deep Water Blue with Stone White stripes or Bright White Clear Coat with Viper Blue stripes.
