For 2011 Dodge are bringing the legendary 392 cubic inch engine back to life. In metric terms, that's 6.4 litres of HEMI grunt.

The car which will play host to the monster engine is the new Dodge Challenger SRT8 392.

The original 392 HEMI engine was introduced in 1957 model year Chrysler and Imperial products, replacing the 354 cubic-inch version of the original HEMI launched in 1951. The new and improved HEMI V-8 engine was quickly adopted by drag racers, and following various historical speed runs on land and water, the engine soon became affectionately referred to simply as the "92."

The 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 puts out 470 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. That's 90 lb.-ft. more torque at 2,900 rpm compared with the previous 6.1-liter V-8 engine. Dodge say that they've sacrificed a bit of top-end horsepower in order to gain some extra low-down torque from the engine.

Dodge's SRT engineers recalibrated the suspension geometry to improve the 2011 Challenger's balance, corning ability and steering responsiveness. Quicker steering ratios and new negative camber settings are also designed to improve the car's handling.

The performance SRT-tuned, fully hydraulic steering system of the Challenger SRT8 392 has also been upgraded with a new, heavy-duty pump and revised gearing to give drivers more direct feel and on-center response.

For the introductory 2011 model year, Dodge will build 1,492 Inaugural Edition models of the Challenger SRT8 392, all with exclusive features.

On the outside, Dodge is offering unique customization for those first 1,492 owners. Two colors and new full-body stripe combinations include Deep Water Blue with standard Stone White stripes or Bright White Clear Coat with standard Viper Blue stripes. All Inaugural Edition models will ride on standard 20-inch SRT-exclusive wheels that feature a polished face and satin black painted pockets.

Unique "392 HEMI" badges adorn the front wheel arches and advertise the historically significant V8 engine. Mopar quad exhaust tips deliver the performance exhaust note while adding a serious muscle car styling cue. A larger front splitter and integrated front fender spats give the Challenger SRT8 392 better overall high-speed aerodynamics and balance.

A newly modified front fascia chin spoiler improves aerodynamics and is accent painted for a more aggressive look. The rear spoiler also is finished in matching body color.

The race-inspired interior of the Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 Inaugural Edition features standard Smooth Pearl White leather-trimmed seats and dual blue stripes accented by unique blue stitching. Each of the front seats features an embroidered "392" just below the headrest. An exclusive, serialized "Inaugural Edition 392 HEMI" dash plaque, showing the sequential build number from 1 to 1,492, rounds out the exclusive interior content.
