The 2006 Dodge Challenger Concept

And the show must go on.

The classic Dodge muscle car of the 70s is making a comeback; this time as a Concept car.

For car enthusiasts who are also avid movie goers, the Dodge Challenger is very memorable. It starred with Barry Newman, Cleavon Little and Dean Jagger in the 1971 movie, the Vanishing Point and with Viggo Mortensen in the 1997 remake of the said movie.

Dodge Challenger also appeared in the 2003 movie, 2 Fast 2 Furious, the sequel of the 2001 movie, The Fast and the Furious, which starred Vin Diesel and Paul Walker and which featured another 1970s Dodge car, the Dodge Charger.

The Dodge muscle coupe concept shall debut in the North American Auto Show in January in Detroit. It is much similar to the 1970s Dodge Challenger, says Tom Tremont of Chrysler’s Pacifica studio in California.

A sketch of the 2006 Dodge Challenger Concept released by Dodge reveals the old Dodge Challenger’s distinctive features such the rear Dodge fender kick, wide mouth front end, functional Dodge hood scoops and rectangular exhaust tips.

However, in its reincarnation, the 2006 Dodge Challenger Concept car shall be more refined and imperfections such as the old car’s tucked under wheels and long front overhang will be removed.

It will be based on a shorter Chrysler 300/ Dodge Charger chassis (116-inch wheelbase vs. 120 inches) and it shall be powered by a 6.1L Hemi engine mated with a six-speed manual transmission with a pistol grip shifter.

Dodge just faced the challenge of making a muscle coupe concept car adopted from the old Challenger model despite the innovative designs being introduced the industry nowadays.
