Review: 2009 Dodge Challenger SRT8 six-speed reveals its true character

This isn’t the first sampling of the reborn Dodge Challenger. We’ve driven the SE, R/T and SRT8 variants before. However, this time it’s different. We’ve secured a Challenger SRT-8 with a six-speed manual transmission – and it’s a whole different breed of bull.

The six-speed-equipped Dodge Challenger SRT8 drives exactly as it looks. Unlike the countless poseurs promising handling with oversize tires, performance with monstrous exhaust pipes, or luxury with overstuffed cabins, the Challenger SRT8 delivers only what its exterior suggests – a mountain of machismo-infused muscle-car entertainment.

We had a week with Dodge’s tribute to testosterone, and it’s one we won’t soon forget. Contrary to its automatic-equipped siblings, the manual gearbox transforms the SRT8 from merely entertaining to positively supernatural. Make the jump to find out why this husky red coupe had us shaving twice daily. (Source: Autoblog)
