As the sun sets on the iconic modern-day HEMI® era, the automotive world bids farewell to an unparalleled legend—the Dodge Challenger (LA). In one of its final acts for the HEMI muscle car era, Mopar unveiled a limited-edition run of Mopar ’23 models for both the Dodge Challenger and Charger.
The last call for Dodge Challenger production heralds the arrival of an elite few—only 220 units, meticulously crafted to commemorate the Mopar brand one last time within the current generation Challenger.
Cloaked in the commanding Pitch Black Clear Coat, adorned with intricate matte-black graphics, and accentuated by striking Mopar Blue tracer stripes on the hood, roof, and decklid, the Challenger Mopar ’23 exudes an aura of exclusivity. The bespoke Mopar Blue grille badge proudly proclaims its heritage, while the forged carbon-black wheels, complemented by Mopar Blue brake calipers, create a captivating visual spectacle that demands attention.
Beneath its aesthetic prowess lies a performance pedigree that defines automotive excellence. Built on the foundation of the 2023 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody, this model houses a 6.4-liter (392 cubic-inch) HEMI® V8 engine, unleashing an impressive 485 naturally aspirated horsepower. Enthusiasts can choose between the standard Tremec 6-speed manual transmission or the optional TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission, ensuring a personalized driving experience.
The SRT-tuned Widebody competition suspension further accentuates its performance prowess, along with Bilstein three-mode adaptive damping and the exclusive Mopar Blue Brembo six-piston front brake calipers (four-piston rear). The 20-inch forged aluminum wheels, body-color fender flares, and Pirelli P Zero 305/35ZR20 summer performance tires promise an exhilarating and gripping ride on every corner.
Inside, the Challenger Mopar ’23 envelops its occupants with a sense of exclusivity. The serialized Mopar instrument-panel badge stands as a testament to individuality, complementing the Carbon Suede Interior Package adorned with genuine carbon fiber accents and a suede headliner. The Plus Package enhances the experience with Scat Pack logos on black Nappa/Alcantara seats, along with heated and ventilated front seats, among other luxurious appointments.
For the privileged few who secure ownership, a bespoke Mopar ’23 owner kit awaits—a personalized testament containing a metal certificate of authenticity embellished with a serialized vehicle-build number, and a unique vehicle rendering meticulously crafted by the esteemed Mopar design team—a tribute to the exclusivity of this automotive masterpiece.
In a limited production run of only 220 units—200 for the U.S. and 20 for Canada—the allure of the Mopar ’23 Special Edition Package beckons. Adding a mere $3,995 to the standard Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody’s MSRP offers an unparalleled opportunity to own a piece of automotive history—the culmination of power, rarity, and unyielding sophistication.
The showcased car is currently in inventory at Bluebonnet Chrysler Dodge Jeep® in New Braunfels, Texas, which also holds a Charger Mopar ’23 in stock.
