The Dodge Challenger Concept 2006: Resurrection of an Outstanding American Muscle Car

In 1970, DaimlerChrysler introduced the Challenger with an engine choice of 125 HP SIX or 425 HP 426 Hemi with only 83,000 units. Since then, the fast sports car Challenger was produced yearly until 1978.

With more than thirty years of waiting, the Challenger fast car has now been released. Although to be out in the market at 2007, 2008 and 2009, DaimlerChrysler presented the Challenger Concept super fast muscle car at the Detroit Auto Show.

The designers of the Challenger new fast car considered a modern model for the muscle car. However, the result became much more outstanding – a retro design with modern performance.

This concept is derived from the most sought after fast muscle car – the Challenger 1970. The fast new car will be built as an improved version, without the imperfect designs, long front overhang and tucked-under wheels.

The hot fast car of DaimlerChrysler will be featuring a 425 horsepower 6.1-liter Hemi engine, which is capable of boosting the car from zero to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds, and through 100 mph in 13 seconds – with a top speed of 174 mph.

DaimlerChrysler emphasized on simplicity and performance by taking majority of the positive features from the 1970 fast car model and integrating it with a 116-inch wheelbase, spacious cabin and plenty of rear room for four occupants.

According to DaimlerChrysler, the fast new car Challenger Concept remains pure with simple and minimal line work.

Most features of the Challenger Concept fast cars are features that the original model lacked. For instance, the bumpers now flush with the body due to its smooth, body color. It is also equipped with a B-pillar and all glass is set to level with the body without any kind of moldings.

Other improved features of the Challenger fastest muscle cars include hefty bolsters in the front seats,

Of course, the original model also has features worth saving. DaimlerChrysler retained the original leather-wrapped steering wheel, steering column ribbing, the pistol grip and the six-speed manual gearbox.

New for the challenger fast cars is the aggressively looking gauge holes, which are edged outboard by a larger gauge-looking computer that allows the driver to establish overall top speed, quarter-mile speed and time as well as speed for each gear.

In addition, the gorgeous-looking hood defines the 1970 performance hood yet with a functional valve intake. It is designed to highlight the modern techniques used in the production of this unbelievably fast car. As you can see, those paint stripes are actually exposed carbon fiber from the hood materials.
Because DaimlerChrysler wanted everything to be accurate – right design, correct proportions, functional materials and modern gadgets – for the Challenger supercar automobile, they actually succeeded. The 2006 Challenger Concept fast cars is a retro beauty with state-of-the-art handling performance.
