AutoHunter Spotlight: 2017 Dodge Charger SRT 392

Viper heritage in a go-fast sedan


Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by, is this 2017 Dodge Charger SRT 392.

Did you know that the same automotive performance division that engineered the original Dodge Viper is still working its magic? Street and Racing Technology (SRT), now under the Stellantis nameplate, got its start in 1989 when it was formed as “Team Viper.” A few intermediary name changes followed, but for the last 20 years, that development team has gone by SRT. Today’s featured souped-up Charger SRT is being offered by a private seller in Livermore, California, and the auction will end tomorrow, April 29.

It seemed fitting to continue a “Charger theme” since we introduced you to a heavily-modified version of the Charger from the Future Collector Car Show just recently. Today’s car comes from the same (“LD-platform”) generation, although it is two years newer. Fittingly, the car’s color name is “Redline,” and that’s exactly what it will do: Most sources indicate that the car is capable of a zero-to-sixty time of about four seconds – admirably swift for a family sedan.

However, any true performance car needs to be able to do much more than just accelerate; it also needs to handle, turn, and stop – all with confidence-inspiring authority. With that formula in mind, the SRT division outfitted this car with electronic roll mitigation, electronic stability control, traction control, a Bilstein suspension, and Brembo six-piston high-performance front brakes.

The “392” in this car’s model name is a reference to its 392-cubic-inch V8. It is a 6.4-liter HEMI MDS engine that generates 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. All that power is channeled to the rear wheels through a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission. The drivetrain is unmodified and thus remains exactly the way that SRT intended. It has been driven just 42,980 miles in its seven years, and an oil change was performed at 40,000 miles.

The original retail price for the car was $52,835, which included a few generous comfort and technology niceties like integrated voice command, a Uconnect 8.4-inch navigation screen, power-adjustable front seats, and heated seats for the driver and all passengers.

It is nice to know that even after 35 years, the Street and Racing Technology team is still crafting vehicles that are geared toward enthusiasts. This low-mileage, unmodified Charger is a muscle car that can haul the whole family. Check out the listing and place your bid before the chance gets away.

  1. With all due respect, this is nothing more than a used car. A special sort of, but with many thousands like it made just a few years ago. not even that special.

    • The same could be said about Chargers back in the day, but they still were desirable. Why poo-pooh what someone wants to sell and what someone wants to buy?
