2011 Dodge Penske Racing Challenger SRT-8 – 1 of 1!

2011 Dodge Penske Racing Challenger SRT-8 - 1 of 1! - Muscle Cars BlogThis rare Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 is a result from very productive co-work. For years Pennzoil and Penske Racing have collaborated on track-proven technology that aids performance and improves efficiency. So, Pennzoil thought it would be a cool idea to create a custom, Penske-themed street car. And Penske, dominating NASCAR with Dodge’s top models, figured the brand’s all-American Challenger would be a perfect starting point. Hands were shook, papers were signed and, before we knew it, Dodge had shipped Penske a copy of its latest and greatest Challenger: the mighty SRT8 392. Fans of each brand were then encouraged to spread the word and, even if they didn’t want to buy any of the companies’ products, enter the contest. And finally, the car you see here, Pennzoil Challenger number 001 of 001, was given to one lucky contestant. If you’re a Mopar collector who wants the ultimate late model Challenger, make no mistake, this car is the ultimate trump card!

In September of 2011 Pennzoil announced their “Join the Pursuit” sweepstakes, offering this Penske Racing-inspired Challenger SRT8 392 as the grand prize. As the only 1 of 1 Challenger Chrysler has ever built, this car is entirely unique — evidenced by its Pennzoil Limited Edition dash plaque that simply reads “001/001”. And with only 1,455 miles on its soft green odometer, it’s a black on black boulevard bruiser that’s factory fresh in virtually every way! You know, we’ve sold or driven just about every variation of the new Challenger, from Mr. Norm’s, to Saleens and even Hennessey cars. And from a total driving experience, this is probably the best one we’ve ever found. The car’s drivetrain, brakes and suspension have been fine tuned to the max, and our own CEO even said the car probably wouldn’t have made it to the sales floor if he had more garage space.
