The latest episode of the famous Jay Leno Garage show brings another cool model to the front page, a 570 horsepower supercharged Dodge Challenger SRT8 specially developed by Hurst Performance Vehicles. Along with Jay Leno, you will see Ron Flint, president of Hurt Performance Vehicles, who is offering a few more details on this amazing car.

Hurst equipped a standard Dodge Challenger SRT8 with a Vortec supercharger that increases the car’s power up to 570 horsepower and 525 pound-feet of torque, a huge increase from the standard 425 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque.

Along with the engine upgrade, the Challenger has also received a set of Hurst gold and chrome alloy wheels and an Eibach coilover suspension setup. Hurst is only offering two exterior color combinations: white and gold — the one reviewed by Jay Leno — or black and gold.

Watch the video and let us know what you think about this amazing Hurst Challenger.
