What makes this one different than other SRT8's for sale?
- It is in the same condition as when I bought it. Not one scratch or stain or door ding or stone chip. Stored over the winter under a car cover and I avoid driving it when rain is forecast. I don't park it next to other cars.
- It has every extra option except the automatic transmission and the appearance package (door sill name plates). The satellite contract was renewed in April 2013 (radio, traffic, weather, movie times, sports, ski conditions, etc). And the GPS maps software was updated with the most recent release by dodge. Comes with extra options like front and rear cameras, as well as a $300 car cover.
- Never abused or driven by anyone other than me. No high rpm, no burn outs, no hard turning, no hard stopping. I special ordered the car so no one test drove it before I owned it.
Features: The styling is black with red center stripes. Matching the brake calipers and the black pocket wheels. The inside black leather has the red accent stripes and srt badging. I get a LOT of attention in this. The options already listed cover the extras that cost me more when buying it (730N Media Canter, Premium Sound Package, Power Sunroof, 20x9 Black Pocket SRT Wheels, cameras, car cover), but all the other options (aside from appearance package and automatic transmission) would be common among all srt8's. I have a five page list of the standard options if you're interested or you can see them online at the dodge web site.
Condition: Like new. Professionally maintained above manufacturer's recommendations. Professionally prepped for winter storage. Inside and out, a perfect 10. Underside is as clean as the top when viewed on a lift. Tires (all season) still almost new, typical wear for 6k miles of light driving. Always garaged (heated).
History: I ordered the car special from the dealer, took delivery of it April 2012. It had a couple manufacturing related squeaks and issues that I had dodge take care of (all records and paperwork included). Oil and filter changed. Washed regularly. Driven mostly to work and back, no traffic. Only premium gas used. Really no significant history to speak of. It's only been driven for 8 months as a secondary car. MSRP when new $49,995 + $1,000 gas guzzler tax. I still love the car, its the best I've ever owned, but I need to sell it in order to pay other household expenses.
Shipping and Inspection: US buyers only please. I strongly suggest coming and looking at the car/ records in person. I will assist in loading the vehicle for transport. Shipping is at buyer's expense. I can arrange to meet prospective buyers at my home or work for test drives. I will ride along though. I will assist in scheduling and taking the car to an inspection with a mechanic near me or the dodge dealership near me (at prospective buyer's expense) where you can discuss the car with an impartial 3rd party should you choose.
Payment: Non-refundable deposit of $500 due within 48 hours, either cash, cashier's/ bank check, or paypal. Full payment due in 7 days. Remainder can be paid in cash, personal check, or bank check or escrow.com. If you choose escrow.com I will agree to pay the .89% escrow fee for the transfer as it assures security for seller as much as the buyer. Buyer would be responsible for any extra escrow.com fees. Please note, I will not release the car until I have verification from my bank that all monies have cleared and that the transaction was legitimate.
Thanks for your interest.

The Aficionauto host Christopher Rutkowski has a real passion for original and replica cars from movies and television, whether they are from James Bond, Jurassic Park, or incredibly obscure Japanese shows. However, he might have outdone himself this time because he hopped into one of the biggest automotive stars of contemporary cinema. This 1970 Dodge Charger appeared in Fast & Furious and came back in Fast Five, where Paul Walker actually drove it. The menacing, black muscle car will make its return to the franchise in the seventh film, too.

The Fast and Furious Charger is a real beast no matter how you look at it. The interior is nothing more than two seats and a roll cage, and as the video shows, this thing vibrates constantly like a coiled mass of muscle ready to strike. The camera can barely stay in place most of the time. Also, Dom's Dodge is more than happy to do a smoky burnout and leave the driver partially deaf afterward from its wonderful, ear-splitting engine roar.
The Aficionauto also interviews the man who controls the keys to this beast. Bob Hartwig was once an F-15 pilot, but he also loved Hollywood vehicles. Now, he's a partner at Picture Car Warehouse, a company with about 850 cars that supplies vehicles to film studios. This Charger definitely seems to be Hartwig's favorite in the collection, as it should be.
One of the prime complaints against the Dodge Challenger is that, even in SRT8 guise, its 470 horsepower is responsible for hauling over 4,200 pounds of vehicle. For comparison, the 420 hp in the Ford Mustang GT only has to deal with 3,618 lbs. Things only get worse from there, as the higher-performance variants of both the Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro are far more powerful than an SRT8 without adding on much heft.

So what is Chrysler to do? The correct answer is add a whole lot more grunt to its hefty two-door and even the odds. That's where the all-new Hellcat engine comes into play. We reported on this engine in May, and suggested that the Hellcat, a supercharged powerplant based on a 6.4-liter V8, would easily generate 500 to 570 hp and could likely arrive boasting more than 600 ponies.
Chrysler's ace in its sleeve has now been spied testing, with a number of Hellcat-equipped Challengers running the potent new engine both in more urbanized areas and under the sun of Death Valley. The hoods on these testers have been raised to accommodate the engine, and that camouflage over the fascias of these prototypes is there to hide a larger air intake. We also note what appears to be a new split grille under wraps. As for power output, our spies are now suggesting a Viper-equalling 640 hp from the Hellcat-equipped cars.
The Center for Auto Safety is officially petitioning the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to begin scrutinizing alleged problems with the totally integrated power module (TIPM) on about 24 Chrysler Group SUVs and minivans. The advocacy group claims that the part's failure can cause affected vehicles to stall or not start at all. NHTSA is still looking into the accusations and deciding whether a full investigation is actually warranted.
The CAS petition claims at least 70 TIPM failures, but according to NHTSA, six of the complaints are for models that don't have the modules. In 34 of the reported cases, the vehicles refused to start, and in 17 of them the engine stalled. There were also two allegations of smoke and one of a fire. However, none of these affected airbag deployment or resulted in a crash.
This petition isn't the first TIPM-related problem for Chrysler Group. A recent report in the New York Times alleged that it found 240 complaints potentially related to the issue on NHTSA's website alone. In September, the automaker also recalled 230,760 examples worldwide (188,723 in the US) of the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango replace the fuel pump relay circuit inside of the TIPM-7 with one external to the unit. The original part could allegedly cause the models to stall without warning. Even earlier, the company also recalled about 80,000 examples of the Jeep Wrangler and Dodge Nitro in 2007 to have the module reprogrammed.
