Head-to-Head Comparison: 2008 Ford Mustang GT vs. 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8
GOD BLESS AMERICA
The best they could say is the Challenger SRT will run the 1/4 in under 14 seconds and it will be comparable to the 13.8 of the GT? The author should have done a bit more research on what the other 6.1 powered cars run.
5.7 Personal Best: Heads, Cam and Spray - 11.46 w 1.59 60'
6.1 Personal Best: Forged, Novi 1500 and Spray - 10.405 1.566 60' @ 129.69
7.4 Personal Best: Aluminum 449 - 10.736 ET , 1.589 60', 125.05 MPH
Looks like a lack luster effort on the part of the writer considering there are other SRT's on the road with proven records.

I dont know... While they could of said.. the 6.1 with the same approximate weight should expect high 12s or low 13s... Speculation is not journalism either...
What would the US do if Mexican Drug lords lauched rockets from Tijuana?
Mustang guy, Mustang article, Mustang forum...what do you expect??
he just says the Challenger is ok but it's still not as cool as a GT...right?
125 more hp...big deal
BAD gas mileage
too heavy (all that nasty leather no doubt)
only offered as an auto-stick this year (that sure slows me down)
who wants a stupid sun roof anyway?
I'm hanging my head in shame...here's my keys

Custom airbrush (!), stainless steel motor bay, stainless steel Air-Hammer, stainless steel Magnaflow Cat-Back, shaved door handles and rear wiper, HID's w/halos and tinted tails.
seems like an article that should have written and discarded 3 or 4 years ago during the new muscle car craze.
They should have car enthusiasts write their car atricles.
I'm still shootin, man!
Still inclined to buy the new Camaro. The dealer treats me like a good customer and will sell it at or a couple hundy below MSRP. The Dodge dealers wants to gouge even their faithful customers for a short term gain and a long term loss.I guess now that they are all headed for the crapper they need to get while the gettin's good.Perhaps there is no long term?? Makes sense to me.
All though they call it a test drive, Car and Driver magazine (April 08 issue) only estimates the Challenger's 0-60 time and did not give it an actual dragstrip test. Still Car and driver lists 13.1 at 108 mph and that is a lot better than some of the other articles I've seen; and that is not even the 800 lb lighter Superstock version.
