…Dodge’s Challenger SRT-8 is no slouch?

Dodge Challenger SRT-8

The new Dodge Challenger is the heavy artillery of the modern muscle car war.

It’s big, it’s powerful, it’s only offered in the high-performance SRT-8 trim level, and you can have it in any color you want, as long as it’s Hemi orange, silver, or black.

Unfortunately, the interior suffers from a severe case of rental-car-itis, but when it’ll do this all day:

Who’s really going to look closely at the seats anyways?

For a full rundown, driving impressions, and big, bold and beautiful pics, check out Motive’s coverage of the new beast.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Galpin Auto Sports?

GAS Mustang

Galpin Auto Sports might be the guys famous for pimping rides, but they’re also out to show the world they can do more than just mount a blender in your bumper. Specializing in putting everything and anything into and onto your ride, they teamed up with Ford for the debut of the new Boss 302 engine. The “Galpinized” BOSS Mustang features the 360 hp Boss engine under the hood, a Tremic TKO-600 5-speed to handle the shifting duties, and plenty of go-fast goodies to keep your back aligned. The car was then coated in a beautiful Grabber Blue paint job with matching black accents, and given a custom wing, shaker hood and rims to match the original 1970 BOSS cars. Xzibit would agree, the GAS Mustang has officially been pimped.
