The Dodge Challenger Concept was a concept car from Dodge that was unveiled at the 2006 Detroit Motor Show.
The car's design was a reimagination of that of the original 1971 Dodge Challenger. The third generation Challenger entered full-scale production in 2008 with minor changes made from the concept car.
Need for Speed: CarbonEdit
The Challenger Concept appears in Need for Speed: Carbon as a tier 3 muscle car. It is unlocked upon beating Angie in Silverton and is purchasable for $140,000 in any car dealership within Palmont City.
The Challenger Concept is a powerful car and handles similarly to other muscle cars. Although it is not as fast as the Dodge Viper SRT-10, the Challenger is more controllable.
Angie will swap her 1969 Dodge Charger R/T with a Challenger Concept during the later portion of the career mode. Her car cannot be obtained by the player but can be driven in a bronze tier checkpoint race of the Collector's Edition Challenge Series.
In the standard release, the player must drive a green Challenger in a gold tier Challenge Series race war.
