Filed under: Spy Photos, Europe, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat



One good way to hide the next Dodge Charger from spy photographers is to keep it out of the usual venues. Perhaps that's why it's been spotted again testing in Europe wearing heavy camouflage. We've seen this car (and its interior) in roughly the same state of dress before, but not in Europe.

With Fiat's heavy stake in Chrysler, it's even a bit more logical to find a Dodge under development on The Continent. Head-scratching aside, what's in store? Nothing radical, it would appear. The biggest changes are likely to be to the grille and lamp clusters, with the former growing in size, and the latter getting an infusion of LEDs. The basic shape under all that black cloth is the familiar LX-car form. Bodyside surface detailing is hidden, though there are rumors of some cues being exhumed from the 1960s Chargers. We'll have to wait until the wraps come off before we confirm or deny the new retro themes.

Considering I have a high school diploma, it's obvious that this is going to have poorly ripped cues from the infamous Charger redneckmobile.

I spy a W126 series Mercedes Benz, too bad it's a 4-door sedan and not a hardtop like mine.

The scenery here is like a outdoor mall in Lexington, KY. There's a creaky old Mercedes there and a porky Mazda Tribute; exactly what I see parked outside of Garden Ridge.

... Sure these photos are from Europe?

Don't know how I missed the interior shot before.. That huge bezel around the gauges and NAV screen is so 1999 :-(. Hope the 300 is better.
