V8 Charger breaks all the muscle car stereotypes

(Continued)

But, oh, it’s worth the fuel bill.

Putting a HEMI into a four-door family car may sound illogical, but whoever made that decision at the Chrysler Corp. deserves a free pass to car-guy heaven.

The roar of this V8 under full throttle is enough to justify eternal bliss for its inventor, so rich is its exhaust note and thrilling its acceleration.

It’s enough to make you forget the Charger has four doors and a roomy trunk. When you opt for the V8, that makes this car the only one I can think of that’s equally fitting for the school run and the quarter-mile run.
