IMO - fugly!! The Daytona and Superbirds were based off of the Chrysler B bodies, not the smaller E bodies. Trying to do this to the new Challenger just looks retarded. There's just TOO much going on with this.

It is old news, but none the less it is good to see it again. I have desk top photos of it from a while back.

Meh. I'd want to see it in person before I make a final judgement, but the pictures aren't too encouraging.

Look at their "Challenger II" Concept, i like that a LOT. Best looking Challenger Ive seen.

Close but no cigar. I like the original car... but no modern car can pull off that look.

Umm, while I don't necessarily hate it, I do have a bit of a problem with using a Challenger to make a Charger Daytona while there is already a Charger in the line up that can be used...yet that Charger is only a 4 door so they're forced to use the Challenger body to do it right.
I'm just very confused LOL.

Yeah, I have to agree with others, that's one ugly car. It will not look as good as the original.

As much as I want the car back ...........


Don't even know where to start the list of what is wrong with that car.
It is like they were more concerned with bringing back every notable feature of the old car than they were with bringing back a couple of the high points and having a cool car.
