The newest retro styled American muscle car to hit the road is the Dodge Challenger. If you are new to the Challenger then you may want to see it in action here in Tarantino's half of the Grindhouse film, Death Proof. The 2008 version of the car is directly based on the original but it still retains a modern look. The car will first be available as a limited-edition SRT8 model. The Challenger SRT8 will feature a numbered dash plaque and a 6.1-liter HEMI® V-8 engine. 2008 Challenger SRT8 models will be available in Black, Silver and HEMI Orange. All will feature dual “carbon-fiber” hood stripes, in the tradition of the original Dodge Challenger.
Check out these three interviews from Dodge, with the Dodge Challenger concept designers, Micheal Castiglione and Alan Barrington.
The Dodge Challenger SRT8 is available for $37,995 and customers may begin placing orders at their Dodge dealer now. Buyers can expect to take delivery of their vehicle next spring.
