After Ford redesigned and brought back their pony car, Dodge and Chevy soon found themselves copying and the Challenger and Camaro were brought back to life. The muscle car race of the 60’s and 70’s is back in full swing. Out of the three vehicles, the Ford Mustang is still my favorite while the Dodge Challenger and Chevy Camaro are tied for third. Second spot is reserved for the Hyundai Genesis Coupe (although not a “muscle car”).
All three of these muscle cars are sexy in their own way but thanks to Ultimate Auto’s aerodynamics package, the Dodge Challenger SRT-8 is starting to look a lot sexier. The widebody kit for the Challenger features composite body panels which allow space for huge 24-inch wheels which ride on massive 405/25-24 Pirelli tires. It doesn’t look like a comfortable ride but at least it looks pretty badass.
Besides the wider body, the front and rear bumpers on the Challenger have also been redesigned to give it a more sleek and cleaner look. Ultimate Auto also added a lip spoiler on the trunk to help increase downforce although it’s probably more cosmetic than anything else. The Dodge Challenger also features new headlamps, a front grille, two-tone paint job and the door handles have been shaved and now opens electrically.
Ultimate Auto has not released specific details but there have been improvements on the suspension and braking side which would make considering the massive 24-inch wheels and the additional power gained from a supercharger system. Other final touches on the Challenger include a Magnaflow Exhaust system to give the vehicle not only a few more ponies but an unforgettable sound. And speaking of sound, the vehicle also has an unspecified, over the top sound system.
