The Dodge Challenger Concept was a concept car from Dodge that was unveiled in 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.

The Concept produces a decent amount of power and has a moderate top speed. Due to the mass of the vehicle, players cannot enter corners as quick as other sports cars. Braking is often needed to avoid spin outs and run-off areas or barriers.

The Class A variant has Gromlen race tuned parts as standard. It has an overall rating of 608 and cannot be currently obtained in the game. The Class B variant has Amerikon Speedsystems street tuned parts, an overall rating of 579 and was purchaseable for SpeedBoost23,400 until December 4th, 2012. Each variant can be fitted with the body kits of the car from Need for Speed: Carbon.

The Ford Shelby Terlingua Mustang and Challenger Concept share several similarities in performance. Both are featured with an average nitrous boost and good steering for most corners, which is occasionally relied on braking. Its acceleration is average for Class B but lacking when put against Class A cars. Top speed of the Class A variant is 185 mph (298 km/h).
