    Default [FJ] Exclusive! One-Off Dodge Challenger Rolls To Cruise Night!

    Could it be that this is the only existing working prototype of the new Dodge Challenger?

    I popped in to a local cruise night to hang with some friends, did a double take, then quickly walked back to the Focus to grab my lil' point and shoot. The men handling this carbon fiber-bodied one-off concept were swamped; the car had a gazillion people drooling.

    All I know is that the motor's a Hemi, the trans is a Viper six speed and the rear suspension is independent. Apparently, this Challenger concept is making the rounds nation-wide to some well-known local cruise nights.

    This was at Bob's Big Boy in Toluca Lake, California; home to a Friday night cruise every week since 1962.

    Enjoy the pics; I shot from the hip with my Pana FZ-5 and a dying battery.

























    If you want to see this machine make it to production, go to Dodge.com and tell 'em what you think - even about every little detail - 'cause they want to know - or so I was told.

    Cool. Thanks for the "Exclusive"

    I'm always amazed when they let some take a multi-million dollar concept out in the "real world". Props to them.

    wow that actually looks pretty good compared to other recent remakes of older muscle cars. it has a real old school look to it still. and it's simple and clean as well.

    Squier... YOU SUCK!

    I would have LOVED to see that car in person.

    If that comes to production and looks anything like that, I will take a second on my house to buy one.

    It showed up this morning at the Crystal Cove car show in Newport Beach as well (along with 6 Ford GTs ). Check out these photos by Drew Phillips:

    That puts the Mustang to shame. Give it to Dodge to have the balls to not water down their concept cars when they go to production.

    ^^^HMMMM.. this is still the concept...

    We should nto forget that... there is not telling as of now how the result will look... but I am sure the fancy headlights and tailights will be lost..

    Finally Mustang is 2005 MY ... it will be getting a replacement.. it is like saying.. way to go Camry.. show Accord how to build a car... wel D'Oh it is a newcomer it had the chance to learn from older models...

    EDIT: although it apperas the Challenger did get a green light for 2008.5 release:

    Yep I saw this car out at Crystal Cove over here in Newport Coast. It was VERY, VERY cool. He, he, I even got a short ride in it! Hopefully it stays within concept, plus it sounded WAY bad. Good luck

    Dodge did teh same with the PT when it first came out - the full-on panel concept made by Metalcrafters would roll into Donut Derelicts for a spell (this was before teh Crystal Cove thing started)
