Production Dodge Challenger Pics

These are camera phone shots from the Chrysler dealer announcement show in Vegas this past week. Notice the wheels, the B-pillar and thank god the lack of a cross hair truck grille.
Other than that the spys were right, it DOES look better than the concept!
Car was rocking a T-56 6-speed too...The ass end couldn't have been done better IMO, although the reg's have added an inch to the rear bumper, I love the tail light..
THANKS MOPAR!!!!-Comes out in March as 08 model-5500 to be built, all SRT8's with AUTOMATICS for 38K-July 08 production begins for the 09 model year where they will offer 3.5L V6, and both 5.7L and 6.1L HEMIS will be available with 6-spd T-56's...To my calculations, if a late F-body GM could run the 1/4 in 13:20 seconds w/ 320HP and a 6-spd...why wouldn't the "Normal" Challenger R/T 5.7L be able to eclipse the 12's w/ 350HP (as the 354" 5.7 sits right now;..rumor is the next gen 09 5.7L HEMI will rock 3..possibly 4 valves per cylinder, variable valve timing and roughly 405 (it'll be me) multi cylinder deactivating Horsepower. PLUS they have the dual mode hybrid HEMI in the attic..can you say 400+HP and 33MPG? I can....(don't worry'll be optional)
