Legions of fans loyal to Detroit iron await the launch of the Dodge Challenger, February 6, at the Chicago Auto Show. The spy photographers at Brenda Priddy & Co. snagged these shots of a vinyl-laden pre-production Challenger working out in the snow. “One can easily tell that the production model is nearly identical to the concept shown on the auto show circuit,” Priddy tells us.
Dodge will begin production on its new musclecar, built on the new "LY" rear-wheel drive platform in Ontario, Canada, this spring, according to Priddy. Pricing is expected to start around $31,000, although rumors abound that R/T models have already pre-sold in the $50,000 range. A convertible is also expected in the future.
