The 2015 Dodge Challenger has been spotted testing in the US.
These latest spy shots show a new prototype for the Challenger, with a heavy camouflage scheme suggesting development on the new car is still in the early stages.
At the front, extensive camouflage covers the front bumper and grille, suggesting changes to the front bumper and fascia design for the 2015 model year. Extra cladding around the hood is believed to hide yet more changes.
The rear also sports new camouflage, extending over the rear bumper and rear light clusters. While new rear light cluster designs are expected, there are no signs of LED lighting - as used on the current Dodge model range - on this model.
Our spy photographers report that while a new interior is expected on the 2015 Challenger, this test model sported an unchanged cabin.
While work on the standard 2015 Challenger continues, reports continue to suggest development is also proceeding on the performance-based Challenger SRT8, with that model tipped to receive a new 600-plus bhp supercharged 6.2-litre HEMI V8 engine.
The car, nicknamed 'Hellcat' is Chrysler's answer to the high-performance Ford Mustang GT500 and Chevrolet Camaro Z/38 muscle cars. Several prototypes of the car have been caught on camera testing in Death Valley.
Front-end camouflage on these test mules hides what is believed to be a lower air intake, while a new exhaust design at the rear suggests a new rear bumper design may also be on the way.
