Earlier this month Chrysler revealed pricing information for its upcoming Dodge Challenger SRT8 and now the car’s options list has been leaked onto the internet thanks to several forums. According to the source, the first Challengers will be SRT8 models all equipped with five-speed automatic transmissions as standard. Further down the track will be the release of six-speed manual versions as well as the non-SRT8 models, which will either come in 3.5L V6 or 5.7L V8 HEMI guises. The SRT8 will come with a 6.1L HEMI V8 as standard.

The manual models will get a new Hill Start Assist (HSA) feature, which works by applying the brakes for a short time when the driver lifts their foot off the brake pedal. In 2009, Dodge will release a convertible model and in 2011 the 3.5L V6 engine will be replaced with a new 4.0L Phoenix engine. The 6.1L HEMI is also expected to get an update, with a 6.4L version with around 450 to 500hp rumored to be in the works.

As for the SRT8’s options and features, these will include a 13 speaker Kicker stereo, 20in aluminum alloy wheels shod with 245mm rubber, a rear differential, fog lights, a hood scoop and stripes, a leather wrapped steering wheel and shift-knob and a rear spoiler.
