FORMER SEMA SHOW CAR, PROCHARGED HEMI, ONLY 8,700 ORIGINAL MILES, LOOKS NEW!

When Chrysler rolled out the all-new Challenger, Mopar fans snapped them up faster than the factory could build them. Today, this incredible supercharged SRT-8 is a former SEMA show car that delivers Hellcat-style horsepower and performance with a unique custom look that works extremely well.

Of course, if you're going to own one of the first Challenger SRT-8s, it has to be Hemi Orange with the optional carbon-fiber-look stripes. With just 8723 actual miles, there's really nothing notable here, although it's important to point out that this car has never seen anything but sunny, dry pavement in its brief life. When it did venture out of the garage, it was promptly wiped down and then tucked away again, and as a result it looks every bit as good as it did rolling off the transporter at the dealership. There are no signs of wear or road rash, even behind those massive rear tires which were surely fighting for traction at least once or twice (who could resist?), and the shine is every bit as good as you'd expect thanks to frequent wax sessions. Remarkably, the only notable modification to the car's bodywork is a de-badged taillight with a slight tint. The sucker's impressive, no question about it.

Inside? More of the same, with unblemished surfaces and just about every option Chrysler could throw at it. Power seats with SRT graphics grip you like Velcro during aggressive driving, yet are comfortable for cross-country jaunts. The fat steering wheel feels great in your hands and gives you a complete view of the white-faced gauges. To cope with the supercharged engine, an additional set of gauges were added on the A-pillar and they look so right that you'd almost think they were factory-installed. Navigation, A/C, power windows and locks, cruise control, and a powerful stereo are all included, and a back-up camera has been integrated into the touch screen display in the center of the dash. There's not a lot of trunk space, especially with a full-sized spare tire back there, but that's not really the point now, is it? It is, however, in great shape without even so much as a stray hair on the embroidered Challenger mat.

The real reason folks waited in line for months to get a Challenger SRT-8 is under the hood. The stock 425 horsepower Hemi is OK, but for the SEMA show, stock just won't cut it. For that, a ProCharger supercharger was installed, bumping horsepower to around 600 and thanks to a custom tune, it runs and drives just like a stocker. Just barely broken in, it starts instantly and idles perfectly thanks to the wonders of fuel injection, and the underhood area shows no signs of wear or use, and not even a seeping gasket gives away the illusion of factory freshness. The chassis is equally nice and confirms that this car has never seen rain, because it's spotless. The suspension is a custom Eibach setup with coil-over shocks that vastly improve handling and give it that low stance that looks fantastic. There's also a custom stainless exhaust system and it sits on massive 22-inch DPE five-spoke wheels with a matte black face and Hemi Orange rims. Giant 285/30/22 Continental tires grip like fly paper and yet still ride reasonably well.

Pro-built show cars don't come along all that often and this one is both incredible to look at as well as totally sorted and ready to drive. Call now!
