BESCHREIBUNG

Dodge Charger R/T
The 1968 Dodge Charger R/T (Road/Track) is one of the most iconic muscle cars from the golden era of American automotive history.

The Dodge Charger was introduced in 1966, but the 1968 model year marked a significant redesign that made it an enduring icon. The Charger R/T was the high-performance variant of the Charger lineup. The 1968 model year was the start of the second generation of Chargers, featuring a complete redesign that introduced the "Coke bottle" shape, characterized by its curvaceous body lines and aggressive stance.

The 1968 Charger R/T is renowned for its striking design. It featured hidden headlights, a "Coke bottle" silhouette, and a "flying buttress" roofline that extended to the rear end, giving it a distinctive fastback look. The front grille was divided by a center section, and the hidden headlights added to the sleek, aggressive appearance. The rear end featured full-width taillights with a unique divided look, emphasizing the car's width and presence. The interior was designed with a focus on the driver, featuring bucket seats, a center console, and a well-laid-out dashboard with full instrumentation.

The 1968 Charger R/T came standard with a 440 cubic inch (7.2-liter) V8 engine, known as the Magnum. This engine produced 375 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque, providing substantial straight-line performance. The engine is mated to a 3-speed Torqueflite automatic transmission.

The Charger R/T featured a unibody construction with a front subframe for added rigidity. The suspension setup included torsion bars in the front and leaf springs in the rear, providing a balance between performance and ride comfort. The R/T package included heavy-duty suspension components, front sway bar, and upgraded brakes to handle the increased power and performance. The 440 Magnum-equipped Charger R/T could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in around 6.0 seconds, with a quarter-mile time in the mid-14-second range.

The 1968 Charger R/T has become an enduring symbol of the muscle car era. Its design and performance have made it a favorite among enthusiasts and collectors. The car gained further fame through its appearances in movies and television, most notably the iconic chase scene in the 1968 film "Bullitt," where a black Charger R/T pursues Steve McQueen's Ford Mustang.
