Fiat Chrysler’s Mopar parts and service brand, in celebration of its 80th anniversary this year, will offer a pair of 80-car limited edition, hand-painted, customized Dodge Challengers.
Each of the customized Challengers will be equipped with 6.4-liter, V-8 engines and six-speed manual transmissions and outfitted with “shaker” hoods and air scoops. The cars also will feature the headlight-mounted cold air intake used in the supercharged Hellcat Challengers, providing a performance boost to 485 hp and 475 pounds-feet of torque.
The two vehicles will be separated by color only: a combination of either Pitch Black/Contusion Blue or Pitch Black/Billet Silver. Each vehicle will carry serialized badges to identify its place within the 80-car run of each color. The high-performance coupes also will carry special Mopar-badged trim work inside and out.
The limited edition 2017 Mopar Challengers will carry a sticker price of $56,885, including delivery but excluding taxes, and will be in select dealerships beginning in spring, Mopar said.
It marks the third time since 2010 that Mopar has offered a customized Challenger, having previously sold out of the limited edition runs in 2010 and 2014.
