The 1972 Chrysler VH Valiant Charger R/T E49 (abbreviated as Charger R/T E49 or Dodge Charger 72) is a muscle car that appears in the Hot Wheels Expansion for Forza Horizon 3 and in Forza Motorsport 7, where it is unlockable by completing all the challenges for the Forzathon event Fingers Crossed in March 2018.
The Valiant Charger R/T was a series of muscle cars manufactured in Australia, with the E49 being the fastest out of all models. Unlike most 1970s muscle cars, the E49 uses an inline-6 engine instead of a V8.
When Australian Minister of Transport Milton Morris called the E49 and its competition “bullets on wheels,” it was the death knell for the muscle cars from down under. Fortunately, the VH Valiant Charger in the E49 configuration was already out and all 149 of them sold like hot cakes. With its mighty 265-cubic-inch slant-six with a racy cam and four-speed, the E49 set a production vehicle acceleration record that would stand for 27 years. Speed and rarity aside, the VH Valiant Charger represents the only car designed completely by Chrysler Australia.
