Mopar Celebrates 80 Years With Debut of Mopar '17 Dodge Challenger

The Mopar brand continues the celebration of its 80th anniversary with the introduction of the limited-edition Mopar '17 Dodge Challenger.

The vehicle offers a pair of hand-painted, custom, show car trim options. Only 80 models will be available in Pitch Black/Contusion Blue, with another 80 in Pitch Black/Billet Silver, in a nod to 80 years of the Mopar brand.

The Mopar '17 Dodge Challenger also includes Mopar performance parts, accessories, an exclusive owner's kit and a serialized badge.
The six-speed manual transmission Mopar '17 Dodge Challenger also makes a powerful performance statement that enhances the base Dodge Challenger R/T 392. The 6.4-liter, 392 HEMI engine pumps out 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque and is augmented by the Shaker Hood package by Mopar, which provides performance gains with a hint of vintage styling. The scoop is embellished with Shaker badging.

A Mopar cold air intake also delivers a performance boost and is aided by an air catcher duct system via the headlamp. The upgrade, inspired by the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, feeds additional cold air into the vehicle. Mopar Shaker strut tower braces and caps are silver powder-coated and increase rigidity and handling of the Mopar '17 Dodge Challenger. Four-piston Brembo brakes provide stopping power.
Very nice. Ultra low production numbers, though, so I imagine it'll be pricey.
