When the long-awaited Dodge Challenger concept debuts in January at the Detroit auto show, enthusiasts inevitably will compare it with the classic 1970 version. The new Challenger will boast a 6.1-liter Hemi V-8, a six-speed manual transmission, dual hood scoops and a piston-grip shifter. Underneath the skin is a shortened version of the LX platform used for the Dodge Charger and Magnum.

Drool! The retro craze is awesome. I'd love to see a T/A version. Not the six-pack of course, but the megaphone sidepipes were really cool.

That's my next car, I love the early drawn concepts.The base price is trying to stay competitive with the Mustang market, so I expect the base price to start around $25,000. I love the "new" retro look like the new Mustang, but the GTO looks like hell and the Charger isn't that much better.

The Challenger was a legendary muscle car, and I'm glad Dodge got the look right on this one. I'm waiting for the R/T version!

That rear-end and quarterpanels are exceptional! Very appealing, and very classic looking. Of course, there goes Chrysler putting 58 inch rims on another vehicle.......

That IS a sharp looking car alright. Damn I wish Plymouth was still around. I'd REALLY love to see a new Hemi 'Cuda! :thumbsup:
If they were around chances are pretty good that the 'Cuda would look just like the Challenger. You could buy one of these new Challengers and make your own 'Cuda with early badges and redo the tail lights. I know it would be cheating but the big three do it all the time, why can't we? :p

Oh no...I must have one. Damnitall, why did you have to put those pics up!?

So, I'm unfamiliar with the whole concept car to reality thing...IF they decide to do it, what kind of timeframe are we looking at here? I have to get my points off my record and start saving... :)

I think Dodge could have one out in 2 to 3 years.

Now I can't wait till January to see how the Camaro concept looks!
