The Dodge Challenger has been a common sight on the roads as well as in TV/Film since the early 1970s when it was first introduced.

It's a pony/muscle car put into production to compete against the muscle cars at the time selling in massive numbers such as the Ford Mustang and Pontiac Firebird.

Sales of the cars were incredible and many manufacturers jumped on the bandwagon but fluctuations in the price of oil made the world have to rethink how they drove.

In the first half of the 1970's the price of oil quadrupled meaning heavy cars with large engines were becoming obsolete forcing the car manufacturers to act quickly.

These incredible muscle cars like the Challenger shifted to a lighter more fuel-efficient design to retain sales leading to a much less exciting package.

Gone were the flamboyant designs and gas-guzzling V8s, replaced by 2-liter 4-cylinder engines.

Dodge's response to the crisis was to rebadge a coupe version of the Mitsubishi Galant Lambda as the second generation Challenger in 1978.

These sold for 5 years until the company decided to put the Challenger name to rest and divert customers to their own lightweight sports car the Conquest.

Then in 2008, the Dodge Challenger made a comeback right at the start of a global recession hurting initial sales.

This new model was heavily inspired by the original early 1970s design inspiring nostalgia in customers with performance-focused engines fitted once again.

Since the re-release in 2008 sales has grown steadily to 4 times the level sold per year thanks to constant updates to the design and mechanics.
