On paper, the 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 produces 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque but it appears Chrysler may be understating those figures.
Putting the car on a dyno, the guys at InsideLine found that the new 6.4-liter Hemi produces as much as 365 pound-feet of torque from as low as 2,500 rpm and sees this figure rise to a peak of 443 pound-feet at 4,400 rpm. Peak power, meanwhile, measures in at 452 horsepower and arrives at 6,200 rpm.
Note that these figures are measured at the wheels so even with a very conservative drivetrain loss rate of 10 percent, the 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8’s V-8 engine could potentially be producing more than 500 horsepower and 490 pound-feet of torque at the flywheel.
