Memory Lane: 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392

The new 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat has been making serious noise in the horsepower wars, its 707 horsepower stomping on the Ford Shelby GT500 and Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. However, the Challenger has long been the best of the muscle cars for a long road trip or a noisy cruise, especially with the SRT team’s hot-rod 6.4L Hemi V8.

One of our most memorable road trips was in the 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392, a special edition of the retro coupe that added unique colour combos and served up a horsepower upgrade over previous SRT8s. On this trip, I started from my hometown of Brampton, Ontario, where the Challenger is assembled, and drove down to Detroit, Michigan and up the coast of Lake Huron to enjoy Michigan’s coastal beauty and quaint small-town charm.
