Dodge Charger III
The success of the Charger-inspired the Chrysler designers to develop a Dodge performance model. The original Charger had power, performance and countless racing wins, but it was still a big, heavy and not aerodynamic muscle machine. However, the 1968 Charger III concept was something different.
The Charger III was no longer a muscle car, but a pure two-seater sports machine. It had compact dimensions, a low profile, a light weight and several unusual features. There were no conventional doors, but the whole top of the car opened to allow access to the interior. The steering column tilted, along with the steering wheel to make the entry more comfortable.
On the back of the car, there were massive airbrakes similar to the ones on airplanes that deploy under heavy braking. The whole car was extremely futuristic, but that doomed it from any real production.
