Vroom! Vroom! Vroooooom!


Look out, mother fucker! I'm coming up on your ass!

Vroooooooooom!

Now normally, I’m not into the whole car thing beyond just general aesthetics and bikini models and what not, but man, check out the 2009 Dodge Challenger…

Its a God damn road rocket!

425 horsepower at 6,200 rpm and 420 pound of torque at 4,800 rpm all of it thumping out of a 6.1-liter Hemi engine, this car can do a quarter-mile in 13.2 seconds at 107.5 mph and go 0-60 in 5.1 seconds (4.8 seconds with a foot of drag strip roll out ) or as Wooderson would say.... "fucking muscle, man..."

Of course all of this quite naturally means that the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 (pictured below) is not exactly the most environmentally friendly of cars with a meager 13 mpg city/18 mpg highway. She's a go-er... just not for long...



But then... that's not really the point of a car like this, is it? In the end, long distance or short, this car is fucking bad ass. And I really only use that phrase in reference to kung fu and Eliza Dushku, so that ought to tell you something. Look at those lines, man... that's design from an era of cars long gone. Awesome. I wish it had been around a few years ago, because I would have put it in the book. I'm using the classic 1970 version, of course, which was the General Lee car and that's most definitely a cool car in its own right, but still...


...bad ass...
