The Dodge Challenger is a sick car all on its own, but when tuning firms get their hands on a vehicle this seductive, the outcome is just pure beauty. O.CT Oberscheider Tuning has unveiled a new tuning package for the Dodge Challenger SRT-8 muscle car. While in its standard version, the 6.1-liter Hemi V8 engine develops a total of 425 HP, well OC.T has added a new compressor-kit that increases the output to 550 hp and 682 NM of torque. A dynamic change and certainly one to boast about!

O.CT Tuning has also added a new stainless steel exhaust system that performs quite pleasantly at normal speeds, but put the pedal to the metal and you’ve got a luscious sound reverberating out of the four pipes gleaming in the back of the car. In order to maintain a comfortable driving platform, O.CT Tuning has replaced the original AMI-suspension with a KW-coil over suspension. To finalize the added muscle, they have also added a new set of wheels.

The same modifications can also be applied to the Chrysler 300C Hemi SRT-8, with the addition of a new set of 22" wheels and a black-matte exterior paint.

Now consumers can receive the same sexy and powerful Dodge Challenger SRT-8 with even more bang for their buck making this a beautiful business arrangement.

Press release after the jump.

How to change a cylinder capacity monster into a fighting jet? By putting in a turbine!
With this the project was born for the O.CT Oberscheider Tuning team.
O.CT Tuning adopted the project and mounted a compressor-kit into the Dodge Challenger SRT-8 for ventilatory assistance.

With skillful interventions into the motor control unit – adapted to the installation of the compressor-kit (incl. intercooler system) – it was possible to get fantastic 550 hp and 682 Newton meters from the 6.1 liter Hemi. The forwards push starts with a noticeable pressure into the seat. This pressure transforms into brute elemental force already at low speed – comparable to the start of a jet. The unleashed power is supported by a ingenious sound coming out of the compressor.

Outwards the power becomes obvious through an optimized O.CT Tuning stainless steel exhaust system. At low speed this system allows pleasant traveling.
However if you press the gas pedal the exhaust system screams everything out of the four pipes to show who is the champion of all cylinder capacity classes.

Through this O.CT Tuning reaches driving values from the top league. This makes a modification from the original AMI-suspension to a KW-coil over suspension necessary. The coil over suspension has a positive effect on the driving behavior and the deceleration from airspeed.

To keep the Retro Design Look and the surprising effect on the motorway O.CT Tuning abstained from optical actions like rims, facings, etc. specifically.

The Chrysler 300C Hemi SRT-8 is the opposite, even though the modification is possible in the same size of course. However the optic was set up to a “Show-Car” and upgraded through O.CT rims with the dimension 10x22”. The spraying in black-mate gives the car a unique touch.

That doesn’t seem like a big enough prize for a year of Dodge Viper racing. The TV coverage doesn’t sound great either. Not Silence 8.4 liter V10s however, will sound excellent.

I wonder how much tax payer money this useless piece of propaganda cost.

Well, I think just to keep the Retro Design Look and the surprising effect on the motorway O.CT Tuning abstained from optical actions like rims, front gear and else.

it’s obviously far easier to compare the Challenger SRT8 and the Shelby Mustang. At $46k and change, the Shelby runs $5k more than the Dodge, but then, the Mustang buyer gets 115 extra ponies under the hood.

Gorgeous Dodge Challenger SRT-8 Challenger that now sounds as good as it looks!

Well, technically all of details are vague as of right now, an I think its much better to expect and to see the Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid sometime in 2012.

It’s a run-what-you-brung grudge match of the biggest guns Detroit has to offer. Sticker price alone did not rule out any contenders this time around, but value still counts — the baddest in the land still has to be able to pass a basic accounting test.
