So I have just been thinking about the car I would most like to own if money was no object!

Here it is, a 1969 Dodge Charger R/T

The ultimate would be one with a 426 Hemi V8 with a four speed manual transmission.

  • Dodge Charger R/T 426 V-8 Hemi 4-speed, model year 1969, version for North America U.S. (up to September)
  • 2-door coupe body type
  • RWD (rear-wheel drive), manual 4-speed gearbox
  • petrol engine with displacement: 6974 cc / 425.6 cui, advertised power: 317 kW / 425 hp / 431 PS ( SAE gross ), Torque net: 664 Nm / 490 lb-ft
  • characteristic dimensions: outside length: 5283 mm / 208 in, wheelbase: 2972 mm / 117 in
  • reference weights: estimated curb weight: 1780 kg / 3920 lbs
  • how fast is this car ? top speed: 230 km/h (143 mph) (theoretical);
  • accelerations: 0- 60 mph 5.4 s; 0- 100 km/h 5.6 s (a-c simulation); 1/4 mile drag time (402 m) 13.9 s (a-c simulation)
  • fuel consumption and mileage: average estimated by a-c: 20.4 l/100km / 13.9 mpg (imp.) / 11.5 mpg (U.S.) / 4.9 km/l

All these figures are for the car as it left the factory in 1969!
