The street legal Dodge Challenger owned and driven by Todd Barber is the quickest example of the modern Mopar muscle car with and independent rear suspension setup, running in the 8.30s at the most recent Modern Street Hemi Shootout event – and we have video of the action.
We talk a great deal about track records set by the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, but we have also featured a few examples of massively modified Mopar muscle cars from the era prior to the arrival of the Hellcat. The introduction of the Hellcat Challenger vastly increased the number of 10-second-or-quicker Dodge muscle cars on the street, but there are still plenty of insanely quick non-Hellcat Challengers.
One of those cars is the white Dodge Challenger R/T shown in the video below, owned and driven by Todd Barber. We first talked about Barber’s Challenger almost a year ago, when his street legal Dodge was running in the 8.60s, but this season, that twin turbo muscle car is even quicker – dipping into the 8.30s at the Modern Street Hemi Shootout event at Rockingham.
