Big Country said:You won't see mention of weight (at least an accurate number) until they actually build one on the LY platform. I think after it's all said and done it will wind up weighing less than everybody is thinking. All of these magazine articles (Car and Driver comes to mind) throwing out completely inaccurate guesses of 4000+ lbs has started a huge amount of misinformation.
Its actually alot smaller than the 300c srt-8 as I saw both cars sitting side by side at show.....and its a more wider muscular stance than the 300 or charger as well.Challenger_Nut said:How can it weigh much less than 4100 lbs with the demensions it has? Its as big as the 4160 lb SRT8 300C. The only hope is lots exotic materials (don't see this happening) or a smaller demensions! I don't want to here the LY platform thing cause it ain't gonna shave no 500 lbs off to make this car weigh what it should!
I too like the looks of the car, it's just a shame that it will be compromised in size.
If it means a big Challenger or none at all. Then by all means build it as is. If DCX could make it a sports car (Pony car) size. Then I for one would be extemely happy!
Tell me which demension makes it "alot smaller". Is it the 197.8 legnth of the Challenger vs 196.8 of the 300C or is it the 78.6 width vs the 74.1 for the 300C, No, I know it's the .9" lower roof line! The Challenger comes in at 57.0 vs 57.9 for the 300C. It's the perception of the design that gives the smaller apperance.Vanishing Point said:Its actually alot smaller than the 300c srt-8 as I saw both cars sitting side by side at show.....and its a more wider muscular stance than the 300 or charger as well.
