The Dodge Challenger is the name of three different generations of automobiles marketed by the Dodge division of Chrysler. The first generation Dodge Challenger was a pony car built from 1970 to 1974, the second generation from 1978 to 1983 and the third (and current) generation, was introduced in 2008 as a rival to the evolved fifth generation Ford Mustang and the reintroduced fifth generation Chevrolet Camaro. All 2008 models were SRT8s and equipped with the 6.1 L Hemi and a 5-speed AutoStick automatic transmission. The entire 2008 U.S. run of 6,400 cars were pre-sold and production commenced on May 8, 2008. Chrysler itemed off two 2008 SRT8 for charity with the first car going for 400,000 to benefit the notMYkid non-profit organization. A "B5" Blue #43 car fetched a winning bid of 228,143.43 with proceeds going to the Victory Junction Gang Camp.
