Apparently anything Chevy can do, Dodge thinks they can do better. Just as quickly as "Maximum" Bob Lutz revealed he'd be pulling the cover off the 2009 Chevy Camaro during testing, Dodge lifted the skirt off the Challengers out testing in the winter wonderland of Metro Detroit. Like this silver and black Dodge Challenger SRT8 caught for the first time completely undisguised before it's official Chicago Auto Show debut at the beginning of next month. Full report from the spy shooters at KGP below the jump. More pictures coming shortly. UPDATE: Full gallery added below. Remember to check out our full Muscle Car Wars coverage as well.
We just caught the first completely uncamouflaged prototype for the
Dodge Challenger running outside of the Chrysler Tech Center. Perhaps
with the Media days of the Detroit Auto Show officially behind them,
the Chrysler folks were eager to put the finishing touches on their
next big unveiling. The production Challenger will take its official
bow next month in Chicago.
As noted before, the Challenger stays very true to the icon-inspired
concept, but this is our first clean look at car, with no vinyl camo
and in show-worthy silver paint. This new Challenger encounter also
gives us our first at the full-width tail-light design, and how it
works with the rest of the surrounding design elements.
These photos are offered on a one-time, non-exclusive basis at our
