The Dodge Challenger has remained a classic since its inception in 1958, but many hardcore fans of the car still romanticize the design of the ones from the 1970s. The problem is that a) they're incredibly expensive, and b) the original engines, though far from sluggish, are nothing compared to the engines of today.

This new Dodge Shakedown Challenger concept, which was unveiled at the SEMA car show, aims to solve all that. Mixing classic style with modern components, this beast of a hotrod packs a modern 6.4L HEMI engine from Mopar, which will pump out 485hp to the tarmac via a six-speed transmission.

The engine isn't the only part to get an update. The custom suspension is lowered, but only enough to ensure SRT Hellcat 19- and 20-inch wheels can still fit underneath, and the headlamps and taillamps are pulled straight from a 2017 Challenger.

Inside, the interior has up-to-date gauges on the dashboard, along with front seats and a steering wheel taken from a Dodge Viper. Check it out above.
