The latest throwback muscle car is from Dodge and it wreaks of muscle, testosterone, and yes is another lady that makes my pants tight. Dodge even managed to get the colors right and offer a selection to make anyone feel like a badass behind the wheel of the new 425 horsepower monster. The new 08 Dodge Challenger comes in a very limited quantity of 6,400 units sporting the hemi v-8 engine. My guess is the limited production is because of this v-8 Challenger only getting 13 miles per gallon.
Hey, if you are purchasing a new Challenger you aren’t worried about gas mileage anyways (at $40,000 SRT-8 sticker price), but if you are expect a girlified v-6 Challenger version in 09.

Sorry all you mullet sporting, mustache wearing goons, the manual transmission won’t be available until the 09 Challenger comes out this fall. The way it looks, you better go ahead and get in line and pre-order your 09 Challenger, because these cars are hot.
