One of the first renderings of a rehash of 50 year old styling on the new stuff that I actually like. Anyone else?

If you want to see a master craftsman at work, look up Steve Mirabelli on youtube. Here is a link to his modern 71 GTX. He does incredible work. Made a modern daytona from a new charger using a old charger shell. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMGlprhNNok

Its a challenger? This reminds me of when they put super bird/ Daytona nose cones on these cars, although I will admit I like the looks of this challenger gtx much more than those. Challenger.

I'm really fond of this illustration.
If it was offered, I'd probably have to buy my 1st brand-new car since 1989.

Iā€™d rather take a 1971-1972 Satellite and convert it to a GTX clone, with a modern drivetrain and other upgrades.

I love the chunky/widebody look, but it looses me in the glass quarter area that still looks like a Challenger.

Didn't like the 71 GTX look when it was new, still don't like it nor the look in the drawing.

I think I like the blue car rendering better than the challenger it's based off of. IMHO the 71/72 RR/GTX's were the sexiest B bodies ever made.

I like both the red and the blue one, much better then the attempts of a few years ago imo.

Honestly, it's a Marvel superhero movie. Same plot as the old, different getups for the characters. I know it's just a rendering, but how many times can they possibly rebadge the same car?
