CAUGHT: 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 On The Street:

Beware, The "Angry Bee" Is Loose On The Street...

Our friends at Real Fast Fotography, caught this beautiful 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 out on the streets of Auburn Hills. This is the first time the car has been seen on public roads after it’s debut this past weekend at Dodge Mile-High Nationals Powered By Mopar in Denver. We think this car looks amazing in IndiGo Blue.

The 6.4-liter 392 HEMI SRT V8 still retains its 485 horsepower in this trim level, but with a bunch of drag racing goodies from the SRT Demon’s parts catalog, this package is no doubt going to be one of the most popular in the Challenger lineup.

This exact model has a passenger and rear seats, so add $1 for each of those options as the R/T Scat Pack 1320 comes standard with only a driver seat. Now, less than 20 of the production SRT Demon’s came with just a driver seat. But with no limited production run and a lot lower price tag, we suspect that this “Angry Bee” will have a lot more take with just the one seat option.

With a quarter-mile (1,320 feet) elapsed time (E.T.) of 11.7 seconds at 115 miles per hour (mph), the showroom-stock 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 is the fastest naturally aspirated, street-legal muscle car available.

The 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 package includes…

  • TorqueFlite 8HP70 eight-speed automatic transmission – required equipment for the R/T Scat Pack 1320, replacing the standard manual transmission on the Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack
  • TransBrake – locks the output shaft of the automatic transmission to hold the car stationary before a standing start
  • Torque Reserve – works in conjunction with the TransBrake by managing fuel flow to cylinders and controlling spark advance or retard to balance engine rpm and torque to maximize power delivery and launch performance
  • Nexen SUR4G Drag Spec 275/40R20 street-legal drag radials – all-new specially developed tires that deliver exceptional grip at the drag strip and on the street
    • Preproduction testing shows that the Nexen tires demonstrate consistent run times with minimal burnout preparation at the drag strip
  • SRT-tuned three-mode Adaptive Damping Suspension (ADS) electronically retuned for the Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320
    • Includes Drag Mode that, when engaged, optimizes weight transfer to the rear for best launch traction
  • Standard interior configuration has driver’s seat only to help reduce weight by approximately 114 pounds; front passenger seat and rear seat are available individually as $1 options
  • Performance-tuned asymmetrical limited-slip differential with 3.09 final drive
  • Extreme-duty 41-spline rear axle half shafts adopted from the Challenger SRT Demon
  • Line Lock – engages the front brakes to hold the Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 stationary, but leaves the rear wheels free for a burnout to heat up and clean the rear tires
  • Launch Assist – uses wheel speed sensors to watch for driveline-damaging wheel hop at launch and, in milliseconds, modifies the engine torque to regain full grip
  • Launch Control – controls tire slip during straight-line acceleration
  • Low Gloss Black 20 x 9.5-inch aluminum-forged wheels with knurled bead seats to minimize tire slip on the wheel
  • Brembo High-performance Brake Package with four-piston calipers
