Finally! 570 supercharged hp SRT8?

Chrysler finally getting it right, but they should put this engine in the 2012 GC SRT8:

Dodge Charger, Challenger SRT8 To Get 570-HP Supercharger In 2012: Exclusive
BY NELSON IRESON 39 views July 26, 2011


Gear up, muscle car fans, as we've once again got an exclusive scoop on what's in store for you. The horsepower wars are most certainly not over. Dodge's newly-formed SRT brand is planning a factory-option supercharger for the LX-platform SRT8 cars that'll boost the new 6.4-liter HEMI as high as 570 horsepower.

Though it's likely reluctant to frame it as a response to the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and the coming upgraded Ford Mustang GT500, the supercharged SRT8 cars are probably exactly that. Our inside source says the twin-screw supercharger kit, which will be available for order as a factory part, will come very late in calendar year 2012 for 2013 model-year cars, and will boost horsepower up to the 540-570 hp range.

That's right on par with the competition, which is also due out around that time frame. The supercharger kit, built by Eaton, will also come with another upgrade: eight-speed transmissions.

Pricing remains unknown at this point, as does any word on what the blown SRT8s will get in the way of unique naming or badges, but the information comes from a dependable source, so if you're in the market for an LX-platform SRT8 (sorry, Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 fans, no love for you) you might want to hold onto your cash for another year to get the big dog. Of course, it's likely to be offered as an available dealer-installed upgrade to existing SRT8s, too, so maybe you can go ahead and pull the trigger now.

We'll keep you posted as we learn more.

Well they didn't buy out/Merger wasn't until 87'/88' AMX's where 68'-70' then AMC did some "AMX" packaged 71'-74' Javelins . . . and few "AMX" sticked spirits 77'-80'

they bought out renaults 49% then the remaining 51% was aquried via Merger to get Jeep, Then they renamed AMC the Eagle corp 88'-98' for employment and warrenty obligations plus they had honor all the over sea's contracts AMC had signed

I would love to see the Hemi 'Cuda make a comeback.


This is a 'Cuda concept by Reston. It looks too much like the new camaro. No like

The reston Hemi 'cuda design was based on the new camaro.

Chip foose should have a major say in the design of the new 'Cuda

I know its kinda stupid to say I heard some insider info, but there most likely will be a factory cuda concept in the near future.

I wish chrsyler and frigging fiat would at least build a prototype of the Javelin or AMX and put it on the show circuit to gauge customer response. I think they well get a good response. build it and they will buy it.
