What’s pitch black and prowls the streets with 600 horsepower on tap? Why, it’s gotta be The Batram!
Carl Bullivant has always loved Dodge Rams, from the big square boxes of the 1980s to the modern more refined designs. They’re big, bad and very American. So when it came time for Carl to buy one of his own, it was all or nothing: he set his sights on the limited edition SRT-10 model.
With three V8s already in his driveway, Car wanted something a bit different. The Dodge Viper-sourced V10 engine in the SRT-10 was just the ticket. The aggressive look of the SRT-10 Rams is unique and very Dodge, from the big hood scoop and in-your-face grille, to the performance-inspired bodykit and beefy, all-business front end.
Carl set out to import one direct from the States. Not only do you get to choose what you really want, you also save cash.
The SRT-10 Rams were built from 2004 to 2006. The stock SRT-10 powerplants consisted of an 8.3-litre (505ci) Viper V10 engine pushing 505hp at 5600rpm and 712Nm of torque at 4200rpm, with Tremec T56 six-speed manual transmissions (single-cab only) and 48RE four-speed automatic transmissions (quad-cab only). Dodge made several special edition Rams, including the VCA, Yellow Fever, Commemorative and Night Runner.
The Night Runner was a one year only model (2006). Night Runners came painted in Brilliant Black exterior paint, with Dark Nickel pearl finish, 22-inch wheels, black chrome grille inserts, black centre headlights, Night Runner badges and decals and, among other things, a serialised Night Runner dash.
