DETROIT -- Chrysler Group will sell a special Mopar edition of the Dodge Challenger sporty car starting in August.
The company will build 500 Mopar 2010 Challengers at its Brampton, Ontario, plant.
Chrysler says the car, with a functional hood scoop, is the first Mopar edition of one of its vehicles. Mopar is Chrysler's service and parts brand.
The automatic transmission version will be priced at $38,000, including freight, while the manual-transmission version will sell for $39,000, including freight. Both will be powered by Chrysler's 5.7-liter Hemi V-8.
The car will be offered in black with three accent colors: blue, red or silver. The accent colors will appear on side stripes and the baseball-style stitching on the steering wheel and seats.
Customers will receive a special kit when they buy the car that includes a certificate with the VIN number and date the car was built along with a sketch of the vehicle by Chrysler Group designer Mark Trostle.
