Hennessey Challenger SRT600, Exclusive First Pictures And Power NumbersS

Wert may have gotten a thrill from that stock 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8, but some owners are going to demand more power. That's where the Hennessey Challenger SRT600 comes into the picture. Last week we showed you first pictures of it undergoing the transformation into a turbocharged monster and now we've got pictures straight from Hennessey HQ of the car in final trim. We've also got dyno numbers from yesterday's testing to answer the obvious question: How much power is going to those fat rear wheels? Read on.

Here's what Hennessey found on their dyno: On the first pull, the Challenger put down 527 HP (rear wheel) and 575 lb-ft of torque. The second time they were able to squeeze out 536 HP (rear wheel) and 582 lb-ft of torque.

The SRT600 is going to get its debut at their track this weekend during the Midnight 1320 drags so we'll have a better idea of how well that power gets to the ground. Either way, we can say that this Challenger is going to be quite the sleeper driving around town.
