Hemis are what get the wallets out, but a V10-powered car could be a relative bargain.

Dodge Dart/Challenger/Viper/Ram SRT10

Revitalisation of the Challenger brand and elements of the original shape is likely to rekindle interest in 1970s versions.

Big-engined 426 Hemi and 440 cars don’t need much incentive to top US$100,000 at auction [around $170K here once currency, freight and taxes take their slice], but you can buy a basic 318 or 383 car for well shy of $50,000.

A two-door Dart that might get itself confused with a local VF-VG Valiant hardtop is even cheaper.

The monster Viper sports car never attracted much interest from local buyers and they still hover around $100,000.

To experience the Viper V10 in a more practical package, track down an SRT10 Ram pickup in the region of $70,000.
