Auburn Hills, Mich. – Dodge announced pricing today for the modern interpretation of the American muscle coupe. The 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8® will arrive in showrooms next spring at a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $37,995 (which includes $675 destination).
Due to unprecedented demand, Dodge dealers will begin taking orders on Dec. 3 for the limited-edition 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 models. Each will feature a numbered dash plaque and a 6.1-liter HEMI® V-8 engine. 2008 Challenger SRT8 models will be available in Black, Silver and HEMI Orange. All will feature dual “carbon-fiber” hood stripes, harkening back to the original Dodge Challenger.
“The 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 offers pure American pony-car muscle,” said James Press, Vice Chairman & President – Chrysler LLC. “With styling that stays true to Challenger’s original heritage, an abundance of modern amenities and cutting-edge technology, the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 will deliver the SRT credo of benchmark performance at a tremendous value.
“The Challenger SRT8 is only the beginning of the story, as we’ll soon follow with a complete lineup of Challenger models that will offer a wide array of features and deliver outstanding value for our customers,” Press added.

Customers may begin placing orders at their Dodge dealer on Monday, Dec. 3. They can expect to take delivery of their vehicle next spring.
The all-new 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 will be built at the Chrysler Canada Assembly Plant in Brampton, Ontario, on the same assembly line with the Dodge Charger, Charger SRT8, Magnum, Magnum SRT8, Chrysler 300 and Chrysler 300 SRT8 vehicles.
Pricing for the complete all-new Dodge Challenger lineup will be announced at a later date.

The all-new 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 showcases the renowned, five key aspects of every SRT vehicle: exterior styling that resonates with the brand image; race-inspired interiors; world-class ride and handling characteristics across a broad range; benchmark braking; and standout powertrain. The all-new 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 will unquestionably deliver in all five areas.

Re: Official Dodge Info

I'm a little surprised I usually get this kind of quality info from Cuda340!

Re: Official Dodge Info

Motor Trend had this to say about the announcement:

"The 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 will start at $37,995, including a $675 destination fee, when it hits showrooms next spring. The model is starting off as a limited-edition, each car arriving with an individually numbered dash plaque and Chrysler's 6.1-liter HEMI V-8. No official horsepower figures have released so far the Challenger SRT8, leading us to believe there will be no increase from the 425 horses the standard 6.1-liter HEMI produces in such vehicles as the Chrysler 300C SRT8 and Dodge Charger SRT8.

There is also no update as of yet on what transmission will initially be available. The Challenger is slated to receive a choice of a five-speed automatic or six-speed manual, but according to previous reports, if you want to row your own gears, you may have to wait until 2009. The Challenger SRT8 will be available in Black, Silver, and HEMI Orange and all will receive dual carbon-fiber-look hood stripes."


I picked up one negative thing, however. Note that the last line says "carbon-fiber-look" stripes. For $40K we are getting viyl instead of carbon!

I guess this will save weight!
