Wife's new ride, 2012 SRT8 Charger
 
Just picked up our new 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 Monday and all I can say is WOW! We traded in her 2011 Charger R/T Max and it wasn't slow by any means.. But this is 6.4 liters of amazing :)

This is the wife's ride, but ill probably hold it hostage for a few days. ;)

Here's a few shots from down at the riverfront today.

I had a chance to check out the "Timers" feature. I eased into the throttle to try and keep it from spinning and also let the Charger do the shifting. I had quite a bit of spin still and let off a little early. Not an overly impressive report, but I'm sure if I made a couple of attempts, I could improve the times some more.

Thank you! :) From ChryCo: 470hp/470lb-ft However, I've seen a few dyno runs producing 420hp at the wheel stock, so going by 15% trans loss of HP, it could be a little higher than what they're saying..
