The fleet of custom vehicles and hundreds of performance parts and accessories for the Dodge, Jeep®, and Ram Truck brands, will be on display inside Mopar’s dedicated exhibit inside the Las Vegas Convention Center starting November 2nd to the 5th.
The last vehicle we will be discussing is the Dodge Challenger “Holy Guacamole” Concept.
The Dodge Challenger is every bit as beloved and relevant to today’s muscle car enthusiasts as it was 50-plus years ago, and the Dodge Challenger Holy Guacamole Concept combines the best of both worlds. Taking the limited-production 2020 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody 50th Anniversary Edition and gave it a throwback treatment from the 1970s showcasing the ultimate heritage design and modern Dodge attitude.
The Dodge Challenger Holy Guacamole Concept’s exterior is awash in a custom green paint color, affectionately named Rotten Avocado by the Dodge design team and features a custom-painted “Gold School” Shaker hood scoop, unique tone-on-tone side striping, staggered 20-inch Forgeline wheels with “Fratzog” center caps, and a Mopar coil-over suspension lowering kit.
Under the functional Shaker hood, is a Mopar cold-air intake with conical air filter and optimized air box for improved airflow and performance from the 6.4-liter (392 cubic-inch) HEMI V8 engine. The HEMI delivers 485 horsepower and 475 lb.-ft. of torque. It is mated to an 8-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission sourced from ZF.
On the side, the Dodge Challenger Holy Guacamole Concept’s interior is decked out with wood panel trim, sport green and yellow plaid inserts on the seats and door panels, giving the Challenger a true throwback to the early-1970s era. The passenger-side instrument panel badge has even been switched out for one saying “Holy Guacamole”.
