This is No Regular SRT Challenger - it's the Challenger Core

Video

Dodge gets down to basics with the Challenger Core - a $40k reminder of what muscle cars should be.

The Dodge Challenger SRT is without a doubt one of the coolest cars on sale today. It’s got presence, plenty of power and is a reminder of how automakers, once upon a time, didn’t give a damn about fuel emissions. And yes, it’s even better in SRT8 trim and painted General Lee orange. But as it turns out, the performance wizards at SRT churned out the Challenger Core, a back-to-basics all-American V8 muscle car that’s good for 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque.

Motor Trend’s Jonny Lieberman takes the Challenge Core to the track as substitutes for regular host Justin Bell on this episode of the World’s Fastest Car Show. Just try to ignore his ridiculously annoying fake British accent.
