Coupe's coup de grace
The Challenger is a rolling homage to the original coupe, which was produced in the early 1970s. It takes many of the original's design cues -- hood slits, a rectangular grille and pronounced rear haunches -- and incorporates them in a modern way. To Dodge's credit, the result is a coupe that both recalls the past and looks contemporary. That's not an easy feat.
