From the shooters at Brenda Priddy & Co.:
A Hemi V8 was no challenge for our photographer, as he was still able to snag a great shot of the upcoming Dodge Challenger on a fast-moving highway. And even though the pre-production Challenger was wearing a bit of vinyl, one can easily tell that the production model is nearly identical to the concept shown on the auto show circuit.
Dodge's all-new musclecar will be built on the new RWD platform in Ontario, Canada. Production will start in the spring of 2008, and the Challenger will go on sale shortly afterwards as a 2008 model. Pricing is expected to start around $31,000, although it's rumored that the R/T models have all been pre-sold in the 50K range. A convertible is also expected.
The official debut of the (production) Challenger will be on February 6, 2008, at the Chicago Auto Show, just 222 days away. For those counting the minutes, Dodge offers a helping hand at: http://www.dodgechallengercountdown.com.
