|Big, brash, and all-American, the Dodge Charger is the perfect platform for the company’s Street and Racing Technology division to make even brasher. Just like any muscle car, classic or modern, the place to start is under the hood, where a bored-out 6.1-liter HEMI® V8 resides. With 425 horsepower on tap, the Charger definitely isn’t hurting for power—the motor is stout enough to pull the two ton sedan to 60 mph in an even five seconds. For a stonking, rubber-burning, unapologetically muscle-bound bruiser, it makes a respectable showing in the twisties thanks to a plethora of suspension changes and an independent rear end (shared with all rear-drive LX platform cars). With all that thrust and momentum, be thankful that the brakes are gargantuan and up to the task of stopping the Charger at will. Its more-aggressive looks also add to the overall feel, including a bold and functional hood scoop crafted in a wind tunnel to channel cold air to the motor without creating lift. The Charger SRT8 is perfect for practicing powerslides, so find a wide course and hang the sculpted rear flanks out to see what this bad boy’s all about.|
— Official description 
The 2006 Dodge Charger SRT8 is a muscle car by Dodge that appears in all Xbox 360 Motorsport titles.
The Dodge Charger SRT8 is a high-performance model of the Dodge Charger LX saloon.
Powered by a 425 hp (431 PS; 317 kW) at 6200 rpm version of the 6.1 L (370 cu in) Hemi, it also featured upgraded Brembo brakes, and interior and exterior updates. The engine produces 420 lb⋅ft (569 N⋅m) of torque at 4800 rpm. The 425 SAE net horsepower of the modern 6.1L Hemi makes it even more powerful than the legendary Chrysler Hemi engines of the muscle car era, the biggest of which was rated at 425 SAE gross horsepower. This made the 6.1L Hemi engine the most powerful V8 engine that Chrysler had ever put in a production vehicle up to that point. Its best published sprint from 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) has been 4.8 seconds (5.0 average).
The Charger SRT8 is equipped with a series of special parts such as SRT-tuned dampers and anti-sway bars.
In 2011, the Charger SRT8 received a facelift with production of the LD model.
