Dodge Charger R/T: An Icon of the Muscle Car Era

The Dodge Charger R/T is one of the most famous American muscle cars. The model upon which this 1/18 scale miniature is based comes from the second generation of Chargers, built between 1968 and 1970. The second generation of the Charger was a milestone in automotive history, known for its performance and impressive design. The Charger R/T (Road/Track) was specifically designed for high performance and was equipped with powerful V8 engines that could reach up to 426 horsepower. Its distinctive "Coke-bottle" body and hidden headlights made it an icon among muscle cars, designed by Elwood Engel and Richard Sias. Its predecessor in this generation was the much less successful Charger from the first generation, produced from 1966 to 1967.
