Prayers of the muscle-car faithful have finally been answered in the release of the new Dodge Challenger R/T's. The production Challenger is based on the Chrysler LX-platform of the 300C, Magnum, Charger and their SRT8 versions from the Chrysler performance skunkwerks at Auburn Hills, Michigan.
The new Challenger concept was first introduced at the 2006 Detroit Auto Show, and was styled after the legendary 1970 model. A production model was announced to ship in early 2008 and dealers immediately were swamped with inquiries. Originally advertised at just $37,995 MSRP, the first production model brought over $400,000 in January 2008 at the famous Barrett-Jackson auction in Arizona. Production was limited to just over 6400 cars.
Overall, the exterior design cues remain faithful to the popular concept car, with some alterations. From the egg-crate grille (paying tribute to the original 1970 model), to the front and rear spoilers and satin chrome fuel-filler door the lineage is obvious. The design may appear slightly bulkier then the original, but still proudly outranks anything in its class. Then or now!
The Highway 61 Collectibles Dodge Challenger R/T's feature all-new tooling in exacting 1:18 scale. Opening doors, hood and trunk are standard. Other features include highly-detailed 5.7 HEMI® engine, automatic transmission and dual exhaust. The 20-inch Heritage Classic or Chrome-Clad wheels are faith fully reproduced, as are the P245/45ZR20 Goodyear tires. A sunroof lights the fully-detailed interior with flip-forward seat backs and realistic seat belts and harnesses.
