You remember that last time when you brought you some spy images of the Corvette Blue Devil, the guy whom brought them lost his job. We hope that this time won’t be the same, but we must bring you the proof that this car is going into production.

The cars are are hand-built mules and they are ment to be near-identical recreations of the finished production vehicle. Notice the sheet on the front bumper bar, everything is "Manually Weld".

The 2008 Dodge Challenger will be unveiled at the 2008 Chicago Auto Show, and will be nearly identical to the concept car unveiled last year at Detroit Auto Show.

Th Challenger Concept is powered by a 6.1-litre Hemi V8 engine outputting 425 horsepower, or about 312kW. Torque, meanwhile, is equally as impressive, boasting 420 lb-ft of twist, which if multiplied by 1.3558 results in 570Nm of torque. The inside word is that new Dodge concept car will accelerate from standstill to 60mph (96km/h) in 4.5 seconds and should be able to reach about 174mph or 280km/h.
