Picture demonstrating just how big the Challenger is...

Isn't it in between a fit, Corvette & a miata ??

I've seen 2 Challengers on the street now- they aren't 'big' at all to me.

I, for one, would not want to see a 'Challenger skin' draped over

something the chopped-down size of -say- a mini...

There is something fishy about that lens. twink.giftwink.giftwink.gif

Yes, it looks as though it's stretched at the edges... like you're looking through a glass globe.

I need not comment, it speaks for itself

Mmm..not really.

It might not be a fish eye lens, but certainly an ultra wide angle lens. Probably in the 15-20mm range. Anything that wide and you get a lot of distortion and a less-than-accurate depiction. That's what is going on here.

Yeah...To reiterate what Chris said, obvious wide-angle shot which looks to have been squished horizontally. Way too much geometric distortion. It could've been a cool image if taken and processed properly...otherwise, it just looks silly.

Well obviously the image is distorted, but so are all the cars around it. It's HUGE compared to the normal sedans and certainly the other sports cars positioned near it.

It is definitely a big car...just not as big as that picture makes it look...It just made the Challenger look skinny while making everything else in the picture that isn't in the front and facing head on look stubby.

Hell, look at the Boxster to the right of it...It is positioned the same as the Challenger and also appears to dwarf cars that are around it.

A fish eye lens is certainly a part of the illusion here...

Also, the Fit and Smart in the photo "distort" things a bit.
