Concept Dodge Charger and Daytona
I bare no hatred towards the current Charger, I've got tons of respect for it. With that in mind I just wanted to have some fun and do my own version based off the old cars and give it a modern spin like what was done with the Challenger. This is all done for fun, I'm not out to start flame wars or anything. Opinions and criticism are most welcome. With that said this is my concept of at Charger and Daytona it's largely based off of the 69 & 70 with optional grills for both years. It's been designed in a way to support being put on the current Challenger chassis the dimensions of it are almost the same it's just a little longer in the front and back. The interior for the moment is almost the same as the current Charger. Some things are still subject to change like the backup lights being in the tail lights I might put them in the body. This is a fully modeled car with interior engine bay and trunk, I started designing it last year about this time on my laptop (pc had just died). The base design was done in about 5 days modeling the interior, motor and other details took a little longer and I spent the rest of the time tinkering with the body shape. The music is from the site danosongs(dot)com First track is I feel You Second track is Black box in the Ground Credit for the music goes of him. Anyway this is my concept for the new Charger and Daytona, opinions and criticism welcome, just keep it constructive. : )
Making A Dodge Challenger
We sent a team to the Brampton Assembly Plant to get a "behind the scenes" look at the elements that go into the creation of a Dodge Challenger. So if you love this iconic muscle car, follow us on the journey...
LMC Super Cuda 200 MPH!
log onto www.legendarymotorcar.com to see photos of the build! Lady Luck was on our side last week as the Legendary Team made its way to the Chrysler Proving Grounds in Chelsea, Michigan. An all night drive through a snow storm saw us pull into the proving grounds parking lot at the crack of dawn. It was cold and overcast but no sign of rain or snow. It looked like the weather would cooperate, the next hurdle was having MOPAR engineers check out the Cuda. The car passed with flying colors, testament to the sweat and dedication put in by everyone at Legendary over the last year. Then it was off to the black lake for some real world handling tests in preparation for the 4.75 mile oval and a crack a breaking the 200 mph mark. Both the Cuda and the Enzo look impressive on the track but once the sun began to come out late that morning the setting was perfect for our high speed run. I think we captured some spectacular footage of a once in a life time event. After a brief mishap, when the Cuda lost its windshield trim at 190 mph, Peter was ready to go. We could hear the Cuda coming long before we could see her, as the cars went by they sounded like jet fighters. Top speed 208 mph with still some leftwe did it!
