And it is HOT!
Wow, I was disappointed with the new Charger (my first car was a 74 Charger). Looks like Dodge has followed Ford on the Mustang and is coming out with a retro styled Challenger. It looks great.
Now when they bring back the mighty 'cuda I'll be impressed.
Concept car....dont get too excited just yet.
But it is hot!
Will it have non-reclining vinyl seats and a mono AM/FM radio? If they offer it in (sub)Lime Green I'm gonna start robbing C-Stores to buy one!
I'm not against the recent trend of car manufacturers looking to styling from the 1960s and '70s, but I think this looks less like a car with styling cues from previous models and more like an 'old car'.
Thats exactly why it looks better than any sub-$80,000 car.
This would be awesome if it were under $30k, but unfortunately, I think Dodge is only going to have a high-performance version that will sell for $38k or so. It will have the engine from the 300C SRT-8. (420 hp I think?)
I say they should just put the regular 340 hp hemi in it and try to compete directly with the Mustang GT. Sell it for $28k and it would go like hotcakes. My info is from the recent Car and Driver article. I don't know for sure that there will only be a high-perf version, but that's how the article made it sound.
Muscle cars shouldn't cost $40 grand. Come on.
Well the 340HP hemi version should run ~$30k if they go that route. I would expect them to do so.
If this car is priced
Remember that the Camaro is rumored to be coming back as well at that time.
Maybe the muscle car era has returned.
The major problem I have with the ew challenger is that the concept car has that nice 6 speed manual in it but the production version will probably only have stinking automatic trannies
if the production version actually has a 6 speed manual and a V8, I will be first in line to buy one
Not that I could afford one, but I'd drive that!
Holy crap, is that a 300 series tire out back!?!
