Chalk this up to another racing homologation special. The 2017 Challenger T/A is a direct descendent of the 1970 Challenger T/A 340 Six Pack, a production car sold to customers that allowed Dodge to compete in that year’s SCCA Trans Am racing series. Only 2,399 were ever built and have become some of the most collectible Mopars of the era. Dodge is now paying tribute to that car with the Challenger T/A, offered both as the 5.7-liter-powered T/A and the 6.4-liter-powered T/A 392. I recently found myself behind the wheel of a Challenger T/A 392, with its matte-black hood pointed at the imposing hill of Turn 1 at the Circuit of the America’s Formula One track outside Austin, Texas. This technical racetrack would prove perfect for the T/A 392’s massive torque output and six-piston Brembo brakes.
