Not only did Dodge piss everyone off by making a 4 door, but they made an AUTOMATIC ONLY also.

The new challenger 2-door comes with a 6.1L hemi engine and a 6 SPEED MANUAL.

I heard about it a month ago, the spy shots were out two weeks ago. Since its going to be built on the 300/Charger shortened platform, hopefully it will also be at least a little lighter than the boat of a car they called the Charger. :yes:

Bro, if you don't think a retro-looking Challenger with a 6.1 Hemi is "right"......:shakeno:

Its more than just putting a high horsepower engine into a boat of a car. Im glad they made it 2 doors and gave it a 6 speed. I hope they also shave at least 500 lbs off the Charger base weight and upgrade the suspension so the car actually handles well. They are on the right track by using a shorter platform than the Charger.... but I dont think they are entirely there yet.

The "hemi" is nice, but I believe the newer dodge engines are not actual hemi's. The hemi name, IIRC, was given because the engines had a hemispherical combustion chamber, and IIRC the newer dodges dont have that..... they just call themselves hemi's. Also I hope Dodge does some serious tuning on this car to make it solid right off the floor. Dodge in the past has just put engines with good belt hp ratings into cars that weigh a ton and handle like a cruise ship on wheels.

Hey now..

I always have to mess with you american muscle guys :evil:

I'm actually sure it will be pretty nice. It does look like the new Camaro concepts though sort of. To me the new Camaro concept if you haven't seen looks like a smashed down Mustang.

yeah...the Super Bee package was awesome... you never know, they may toss that in, they've put it on one of the trucks recently...

Pagan

Nah...no Super Bee. The only car that belongs on IS the Super Bee, and that wasn't a Challenger.

Now....if they ever make a 'Cuda, they better put the "hockey stick" stripes on it! :D
