Dodge Challenger The Challenger was popular in America’s muscle car era of the late 1960s and 1970s. Creed said the new, rear-wheel-drive Challenger concept drew its inspiration especially from the original Challenger that debuted in 1970. It is the model most sought after by collectors.

The characteristic wide-mouth grille is there. So are the rectangular tailpipes and pistol-grip shifter. Even the Challenger’s black racing stripes on the hood are on the new concept. But instead of being done with paint, the stripes on the concept car are exposed carbon fiber.

The four-passenger Challenger concept also has six manual speeds, rather than the four speeds of the original car. The single, large rear taillight is illuminated by diffuse neon in the concept, and tires and wheels are 20-inchers. The front and rear track are 64 and 65 inches, respectively, which is wider than that of the 1970 Challenger. And the side glass is narrower than it was on the original Challenger.
The Challenger concept is powered by Chrysler’s 425-horsepower 6.1-liter HEMI V8 whose deep tones were heard at the press conference. Chrysler officials said the car should go from 0-to-60 miles an hour in 4.5 seconds, which is on par with many sports cars, and top speed is 174 mph.

“This is the faithful reincarnation of a muscle car legend,” Creed said.

If given a final OK for production, the Challenger could be in showrooms by the 2009 model year.

I should be paid off by '09, can't wait to launch myself headlong into another loan! :lol: How much you think it'll cost? Looking at it I imagine the sleaze salesman asking me for ohh, I dunno... $45,900? And that's just he can tell that the car was made for me, not everyone gets that price. :ftard:
