In 1965 Dodge created a heavy and attractive beast known today as the Challenger. Stylist Carl Cameron refined the design, and in 1970 Dodge was building the first Challenger prototypes. GreenLight has taken these well worked and competitively crafted machines into the 1:18 scale world.
The R/T (Road and Track) model is known for its purpose in performance. GreenLight has incredible authenticity of two distinct versions of the 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T convertible. The Rallye Red Challenger has a Power Dome hood over a 383 CID Magnum V-8 with fresh white stripes on the rear. The White Challenger sports a Shaker hood; used to forced air into the 426 HEMI engine, and fierce black stripes running down the sides.
These 1:18 die-cast replicas feature detailed engines, real rubber tires, metal body and chassis, detailed graphics, custom license plates and are officially licensed. Only1,500 pieces of each color will be produced. Both models will be available through official GreenLight hobby shops and wholesale dealers. (www.greenlightcollectibles.com)
