2008-2009 SRT Sightings

About 500,000 Challengers have been built in the past 11 years. But, how many original 2008-2009 Challenger SRTs do you see on the road?

When I drive my Hemi-orange 2009 SRT, I never see these early models. I think there are three reasons for this.

1. They are relatively rare- only 16,842 were built (7,262- 2008 and 9,580- 2009).
2. Some are "garage queens."
3. A few high mileage cars are now off the road.

About the only one I see, other than at the big annual Mopar show I attend each June, is mine. It is my fair-weather commuter of choice and I am about to hit 78,000 miles.


I see quite a few 6 cylinder cars and R/Ts. Mostly with new tail lights. Oh, and a couple Hellcats.

1970 Challenger R/T SE, 440 Magnum, E5 red, black top, black bumblebee. 2009 Challenger SRT8, 6speed, sunroof, nav, MP Corsa, K&N CAI, one of those clear blue tuner thingys, a nasty door ding, bald rear tires, hops like a bunny

Still hanging on to mine. Original owner silver 6-speed SRT8. Would be cool to upgrade to a Hellcat, but I still love the old girl, and not really sure I want to trade this one in & spend another $35k-40k....

The relatively small number of the '08 - '10s - looking back

7,262 - 2008
9,580 - 2009
9,944 - 2010

those are the higher years for SRT8 or SRT 392 models - only the '15 / '16 Hellcats in those years match or exceed what was the highest production quantities.

Anymore now, I see 4:1 ratio of '15+ models vs. the '08 - '14 style.

Even then, its predominately the '11+ body style (the keyless go door handles are the quick way to spot)

Some might be garage queens, strip / show cars or no longer on the road

2016 392 Hemi Scat Pack Shaker 23Y pkg (M6) ordered 8/28/15, born 10/23/15, home 11/20/15
Torred / Black/ Ruby Red leather
2009 R/T 27J pkg (M6) ordered 7/17/08, born 10/23/08, home 11/13/08
Hemi Orange / Dark Slate/Light Slate Gray leather

You're tellin' me that I have a car that they made less than 10k of!? Wow, this thing could be worth some big $$$ one day!

the thing is, the newer ones are so similar and frankly had improvements over the earlier years (more power, improved suspension) that its a tough argument on collector value.

There recently was a '08 SRT8 that went up for sale for the original price it sold for with 7 miles on it.

Its not like the '08s were the final and best year (like the last run of Buick GNX models, as an example) of a discontinued model.

I have a fairly rare 1998 Ducati 748 SPS. They almost never come up for sale. A base 748 is very hard to find these days. The original production numbers were low. The bike is in excellent condition with full service history (a must for a Ducati). It has been upgraded in several areas, however, I retained all the OEM parts. I have full set of extra plastics, wheels and exhaust. The clocks sit at 13K miles. The bike’s value is still only 50% of what I bought it new for. A vehicle is only worth what someone will pay for it. Of course I will never sell the bike. It is priceless to me. I plan to be buried in the gas tank!

2010 Challenger SRT8 M6: TorRed, Barton (skip shift+), Mopar Performance Long Ram CAI and Exhaust Tips, Fastman TB mod, Speedlogix Strut Tower Brace (front and rear), Brass Monkey Wheels (clones), Arrington Catch Can, 30% Tint (doubles the hp)
2016 Subaru CrossTrek (daily driver)
2006 Ducati 999s (scary fast)
1998 Ducati 748 SPS (far from stock)

Yeah, but maybe 30 years from now they'll be collector items. But I'm not planning on ever getting rid of it anyway.

I'm with you. My 2009 SRT will never be sold.

It's funny that I periodically receive offers, in the mail, from my local Dodge dealer to buy my car for around $20k. I just laugh and throw them in the trash.

Lmao, yeah, I recently talked to a dealer about a used Hellcat. They offered me $17-20k(over the phone) for my 7k mile SRT8 on trade. I politely said no & once again, decided to keep it.
