 Dodge's new NASCAR Charger
All four manufacturers – Dodge, Chevrolet, Ford and Toyota -- will debut new, more stock-appearing models next season, and Dodge’s newly designed NASCAR Charger is slated to be unveiled at the Kobalt Tools 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway March 11. 

Ford debuted its new 2013 Fusion recently, Chevrolet and Toyota have yet to make official announcements regarding the models they will field in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series competition next year.  Dodge’s Ralph Gilles told Autoweek Magazine, "You'll be shocked when you see it. It looks like the street car with fat rubber on it. There is a lot of correlation between the race car and the street car." 

Clandestine pictures of the new Charger have already begun to leak, including a shot taken by a fan at Penske Racing shops recently.
