Yep, there's one of "our" cars getting launched over a speedbump or something and spinning out...Hemi Orange too!(i think)...... Can't wait until they show up around here for rent!! I'm sure they will be treated with respect, never abused and won't be posted on YouTube doing burnouts and j-hooks. .................................stay tuned!:)

Great commercial, and it WAS a 2011 Toxic Orange R/T Classic. I am going to Vegas next week with my wife's family, and we are renting a car for the week. I tried convincing my in laws to rent one of those, but they went with a midsize sedan instead... Chevy Malibu here I come!

I haven't seen that one, but I did see a Les Schwab commercial with a Challenger in it a couple weeks ago. I tried to find a video of it online to post it, but can't seem to find it and I haven't seen the commercial again.

Sadly, it's not a classic, but it is toxic orange. ;)

The commercial has women doing the driving all the way through it. It's a great commercial.

i havent seen TO, but it looked HO to me

ive been seeing the Challenger on TV a bit more lately...Autoweek keeps showing a DWB IE, the local Casino had an add to win a 392IE, saw another commercial where they used a RT for a getaway car and now the rental co commercial.....i love to see it

The autoweek Ad. looks especially good because the car is coming at you FAST and the stance is perfect and very much a muscle car look

TO R/T for sure. Look at the fender stripes and the Chrome Clads. Funny, I saw that commercial. All of it but the final seconds. Cool. Must have looked away for a second.

I thought Hertz only did Fords. Funny they used a Chrysler product.

Yes - I've seen that LS commercial - looks like a B5 SRT8.

Since those don't have spares, you're out of luck if the goop-in-a-can doesn't fix the tire.

Whoops, it IS the R/T. I guess I wanted to see a Classic and imagined it.
Looks like that may be a Toxic Orange (def. not HO) base R/T with cloth seats.

I don't recall seeing a R/T grille badge, thought it might be an SE (those have dual exh. for 2011 now) - you could definitely see the dual pipes before it does the 180* slide at the end of the spot.

I've seen SE's at Enterprise when I was returning my rental car last month.

Wow! Look at all those Challengers. Even the R/T, unbeliveable. None in Hawaii at Alamo, but I did get a free upgrade to a Torred Charger.

Look for the hood to fender stripes. Definitely an RT.
