And what about the GTX???
Did your C6 feel a lot faster than your C4? And did your C6 feel faster than your R/T?
We don't want to forget the Plymouth Road Roadrunner that came standard with the 383 HP, but could have a 440, 440 Six BBL or 426 Hemi. These cars sold like hotcakes and were affordable to the public. Also remember the Dodge Coronet Super Bee that was the sister car to the Plymouth RR.
Sorry for the delay but we were on a little trip to the Outer Banks (took the GT).
The C6 was crazy fast with it's LS3. 430 HP in that light body made for unreal speed. You really could not 'floor it' in real world driving with other cars, just on open roads or safe conditions.
The C6 was definitely faster than the C4 which also was quick, but 'quick' like my Trans Am. I feel my Trans Am (LS1) and C4 (LT1) were extremely close in performance, and very close to the R/T as well. Even though the R/T has more HP, the added weight equals it out.
The C6 blows BOTH the C4 and R/T out of the water. I really don't miss it since those days of dizzying speed have mostly passed. I still enjoy spirited runs and exciting driving which is why I made sure my 2020 R/T had all the performance upgrades (especially handling and heavy duty components). It's my 'return' to my first gen 'Cuda but with even more power and better handling, and of course all the modern amenities. Fast, handles very well, and the 'looks'. All 'wins' for me.
^^ You know the rule
Pics, or it didn't happen
^^^ LOL!! I posted the C4 and C6 in post #3 on page 1. I've posted this combo photo before but here it is. Very 'equal' cars in the performance department.
Ha, No, the trip to the Outer Banks
Appreciate your response! Suspect fuel consumption in the C6 wasn't too much worse than your R/T? I'm looking for a supercharged C6 now that the C6 ZR1 prices have jumped dramatically. Not that fond of the C7 styling and really dislike the look of the C8.
Fuel was not an issue for us at all. Yes, I'd say similar to the R/T.
Here you go. A few photos. I don't want to load this Challenger forum up with too much Mustang stuff.
Cape Hatteras lighthouse and Bodie Light in the first two, then our car on the ferry off to Ocracoke to see the island lighthouse. The main coastal road is mostly sand dunes and this bridge was just completed in 2019 after another hurricane.
The last two photos are where we stayed with a view of the Atlantic from the top level. That house in the distance isn't going to last much longer.
