SpeedFactory to show supercharged 440 Challenger

by David Zatz on

Modern muscle car builder SpeedFactory will introduce the first modern supercharged, all-aluminum, 440 Hemi-powered Dodge Challenger at the upcoming SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, Nov 3-6, 2009 (booth 43127).

The SpeedFactory prepared 2009 SRT8 Challenger is powered by a bored and stroked 6.1L Hemi Mopar aluminum block, increasing the displacement to 440 cu. in. (7.2 liters). It includes CNC ported Mopar aluminum heads and a completely forged rotating assembly. A Vortec V3 centrifugal supercharger boosts the output of this reliable, modern Mopar power plant to 700HP on premium-grade 91 octane pump fuel. So now there IS a 440 Hemi.
