    Technically we have all seen the *most* of the 2015 exterior make over here on Allpar thanks to pics from the FF movies.

    The interior on the other hand, that is a closely guarded secret. We know it has the 8.4 and the common cluster of the Charger, but that's it.

    Is a factory exhaust that loud even legal? I don't think I've ever heard a production car idle that loud before.

    Good question, IIRC, the limit at one time was 84 decibels? Don't know the test procedure, IE: at how many feet away, etc.
    Apparently they passed and are in production.
    That is funny, that is the same location where I ran across the 2014 6.4 Dodge Rams testing.

    Could it have a built in bypass like the recent Boss 302 edition mustang?

    Next time you're in the area Norm and need a place to stay, just check in and tell them to put it on the Chrysler tab! lol

    All SRTs have valved exhausts that change sound and airflow depending on back pressure.

    I don't think the idle on that video is louder than some other stock manual transmission cars.

    New engine and sports exhaust +10. Same large over weight body - 10, dump 300 lb. As us gear heads know new sheet metal sells, warmed over hash just doesn't cut it these days.. The hood would be a good place to start, enlarge those puny sissy fake air scoops. Put some aggressive modern fascia styling on it !

    I'm hoping these mules are for engine /trans tests and a new vehicle awaits ????

    The Spring selling season is almost here. Is Dodge going to bring out a serious contender or keep us guessing another 3 years ? Being too secretive is a failed business model, leave the Top Secret business to NSA & the CIA. If your proud of what you have flaunt it !

    Those are 22" wheels, right? Hard to imagine they put those onto a performance car...

    well a 392 Challenger runs as quick as 12.4 in the 1/4. a extra 200hp, wider & sticker tires, new transmission choices could possibly shave 1.5 sec of the time. so being a pig shouldnt mean anything anymore.

    Maybe with slicks - you'll still see lame auto bloggers running 13.00 with them burning the tires off and missing shifts / grinding gears, then publishing those numbers.

    Its needs to be AWD and automatic, with launch control, and a professional to teach them how, to run 11's in the hands of those idiots..

    Well... as a thought experiment:

    -composite hood
    -composite deck lid
    -composite mirror housings
    -composite roof
    -racing front seats
    -no rear seats
    -manual windows
    -manual door locks
    -no stereo
    -no infotainment
    -no cameras/radar
    -no fog lights
    -no A/C
    -smaller wheels
    -lighter wheels
    -more aluminum parts vs steel
    -titanium exhaust
    -thinner glass
    -no spare tire
    -no carpet

    I mean, this sounds like a cool project for a track weapon, or even a Mopar show vehicle, but I know just because something can be done, doesn't mean it should be done!

    The car is going to be licensed and driven on public roads (almost exclusively, depending on the owner), so I'd personally want it to be comfortable and nice looking before it was a take no prisoners race car...

    Besides, you drive the comfortable (maybe even powerful) car when you're wearing nice clothes and have good hair. You ride the sportbike when performance is number one and you want to get there yesterday (and don't mind helmet hair hahaha!)
