The boys at Jalopnik just arrived in Detroit for the Autorama show and happened upon the Dodge Challenger Super Stock concept car, the one we mentioned would be at Autorama a few days ago. We saw the same car in Las Vegas for SEMA, although with a different color scheme. To rehash, the Challenger Super Stock has a 392 HEMI crate motor pumping out 525 hp and 510 ft-lbs of tire-melting power. In place of the Ronnie Sox livery, now the S/S is sporting a sinister matte black finish with gloss black highlights. Click the Read link to visit Jalopnik for more pics.

Obviously intended as a dragster, the car's rear suspension was completely redone by the DCX Skunkwerks team. An A999 automatic transmission channels that HEMI power through a classic DANA 60 solid rear axle supported by Mopar "Super Stock" leaf springs. Along with the 15" Goodyear Eagle racing slicks, this setup should reduce wheel hop and significantly improve straight-line performance. If you liked it before, you'll probably love the way it looks now. If you didn't like it before, you probably don't understand it, and we're not sure the black paintjob will help.

      I totally agree with Snix. If you don't get it, you don't get it. This car is so damn gorgeous, I will have to get two of them. And what an amazing sheen to the black paint job. It's not a matte but it's not a gloss either. Nasty HOT!

      Yeah, let's stop paying any attention to this car. It's not like retro pony cars are popular. Besides,
      the market is only big enough for one of them.

      Yep, you guys go ahead and get bored with this retro rehash musclecar stuff. Leaves more cars for me. I'll be ready with the cash when the Camaro and Challenger go on sale. You keep buying the rice mobiles, okay, and we'll all be happy. Don't trouble yourselves over those ugly V8 'merican cars, allright?

      I saw this car tonight in person at the Autorama. My goodness, what a car. If you don't understand it, just move along.....

CHEVY you can't toss a 440 crank not that you would beings the magarite where steel the F wourd thats right can you say (probleynot) cammer BOSS 429

      They need to bring this thing to market already. I went from interested to indifferent.
