Mopar ’17 Dodge Challenger is a Limited-Edition 80th Birthday Celebration



Quote:
This year, Mopar is celebrating its 80th birthday with a limited-edition Dodge Challenger, revealed at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show.

Mopar, Fiat Chrysler Automobile’s (FCA) official aftermarket parts arm, puts together limited-edition models every year, but for 2017, the car doubles as a birthday celebration. Mopar will build just 160 of these cars, 80 of which will be available in Pitch Black/Contusion Blue while the other 80 will come in Pitch Black/Billet Silver.

To make sure this car stands out in a crowd, it comes with a two-tone custom paint job, a hand-painted Mopar 392 logo, a Shaker Hood, 20-inch aluminum wheels with semi-gloss accents and chrome exhuast tips.

Powering the Mopar ’17 Challenger is a 6.4-liter V8 makes 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque, sent through a six-speed manual transmission. A Mopar cold air intake is used to help keep this powerplant running at its best, while an air catcher system that sucks air through one of the headlamps, like on the Hellcat models, has also been added.

I like the black and silver but they should have given them nicer wheels and I'm not thrilled with the cheap 392 sticker on the side. Plus you can only get these in a stick. I guess it will be a nice collector piece though.

Fat people are hard to kidnap!

Didn't they celebrate a 100th anniversary a few years ago? I must have missed something.

Looks nice and 6-speed manual only, have they ever done that before, restrict to a manual transmission only?

No sticker, it's hand painted.

It still looks cheap. The rotated M for the 3 is a good idea but they should have made it into some type of emblem.
