Not for the faint of heart

I realize there are people who really like custom bodies but my first reaction to this was "that looks like a Mustang". Why, oh why, do that to a Challenger.

I like it as well, but the profile did look like a Mustang.

It would have looked better if:

> they had left the side character lines intact (no door scallops)
> use the '71 style R/T quarter scoop design
> use the Drag Pak lower inlet style

That would keep the overall look more true to a Challenger

Gym floor in the trunk lolz.

I bet all that stuff would fly off the sides over 120mph. Hope they considered that when they SC it.
