Back in 2010, Dodge released a series of pink-colored Dodge Challenger R/T Classic and SRT-8 models as a special limited edition. The color was called “Furious Fuchsia” and if it looks familiar, it is because it was recently re-released on the Jeep® Wrangler (JL) last year as “Tuscadero” (PHP). The color was so popular on the Wrangler, that over 30,000 units painted in the color were ordered. A far different cry than the Dodge Challenger SRT-8, which only had 400 units produced.
The Dodge Challenger SRT-8 “Furious Fuchsia” Edition cars were based on the standard SRT-8 models but featured a few upgrades. This included Pearl White leather SRT performance seats with a Furious Fuchsia accent stripe, unique 20-inch SRT forged-aluminum wheels with Satin Black accents, serialized dash plaque indicating the limited production run of 400 units, and retro-inspired chromed quad-exhaust tips.
Under the hood was the 6.1-liter (370 cubic-inch) SRT HEMI V8, with its engine block lacquered in original HEMI Orange paint. The 6.1-liter delivered 425 horsepower (317 kW) and 420 lb.-ft. (569 N•m) of torque and could be mated to either a 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic.
This particular model, is currently for sale on the popular online auction site, Bring A Trailer. Purchased new by the current owner from Vasko Dodge of Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, this car only has 4,600 original miles on the odometer.

According to the ad, the car still has its original Goodyear tires and just had an oil change in November 2021. The Carfax report shows a clean title with only 1 owner from Pennsylvania, matching the owner’s description in the ad.
Looking back at the 2010 Dodge Challenger and comparing it to the 2022 model, you can see just how dated the 2010 model is. However, for someone who wants that true high-impact-colored modern muscle car that truly harkens the glory days of the 1970s muscle car era, the 2010 car fits the mold perfectly. Numbered as #157/400, we think you would be hard-pressed to find such a good example with as low of miles as this car in the series, still around.
