Whilst we don't get the Dodge Challenger down under, there's a great hope that the next generation of Dodge muscle car will be designed in RH drive. Sergio Marchionne has said time and time again that for Chrysler Fiat to be a truly global car company it needs to offer their products to the world.

Could ride on a new rear-wheel platform
According to a recent report, Chrysler is developing a new Barracuda to replace the Dodge Challenger.
Motor Trend says the model will be significantly smaller than the Challenger and eschew its retro-inspired styling. It could also ride on a new rear-wheel platform that is separate from the one used on the Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300. If this pans out, the architecture could be used on several upcoming Alfa Romeos including a sports car, a coupe and a sedan.
We're taking everything with a grain of salt, but the magazine says the ‘Cuda could eventually be sold under the SRT brand.
