When speaking on Dodge’s transcendental Challenger chassis, it’s not often that images of a precise, aerodynamically-imbued track car come to mind. Sure, in a straight line, the car can hold its own, but without a conceptual illustration — like this Hellcat-equipped model by Abimelec Design — it might be difficult to see the platform in a different light.
As Dodge’s “challenger” to the ever-iconic Ford Mustang, the retro-inspired pony car was revived by the company all the way back in 2008, taking on the role of a power-packed reinterpretation of the Golden Era’s most prolific muscle cars. But it wasn’t until 2015 that the Challenger took on an entirely different persona, thanks to the introduction of the company’s 707-horsepower Hellcat engine. While the vehicle’s heavy-set demeanor has never taken kindly to sharp corners and limited straights, Abimelec’s stance-savvy iteration might fare a bit better, thanks to its lower fascia, wideset wheels, and a gargantuan wing to keep it pinned to the ground through unsavory hairpins. An all-black front clip outfitted with a subtle red tow hook provides the perfect contrast to the vehicle’s slate gray exterior.
