This Challenger has been produced by Dodge, and is their official concept vehicle for the 2016 SEMA auto show in Las Vegas. This 1971 Dodge Shakedown Challenger presents the mixture of the past and the present. Actually, it’s a combination of a ‘71 classic body with completely modern 2017 elements, including Drivetrain, interior, exterior and details. Also, this Shakedown Challenger is made of the best possible Mopar components on the market.
On the exterior you can easily notice the modern headlamps and the grille at the front, featuring Shaker hood with the new Shakedown logo. At the back, the modern taillights are perfectly infused which give an exquisite look to the ’71 body. The interior is simple and functional, which is made of black leather and carbon fiber details. Also, there are Viper sports bucket seats and Mopar gauges on the dashboard.
The technical details of this 1971 Dodge Shakedown Challenger start with the Chrysler’s 392 cubic-inch, 6.4 liter Crate small-block SRT HEMI V8 engine, with 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine is connected with a Viper’s Tremec T6060 six-speed manual transmission.
The wheels are borrowed from the SRT Hellcat with dimension of 20-inch rear and 19-inch at the front, wrapped with Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R tires. The excellent braking performance comes from the massive six-piston Brembo calipers with four vented rotors, which are also borrowed from the Hellcat.
