Not many sensory perceptions can equal the throb of a massive V-8 in full mating call, and the Hemi under the hood of the Charger R/T is one of the best around when it comes to aural pleasure. The 5.7-liter belts out 370 horsepower...

All that grunt will make the Challenger SRT8 392 an even better tire-shredding machine, though suspension upgrades for...
