We recently brought you news that Steve Saleen’s new company SMS Limited was getting set to unveil a fully customized version of the Dodge Challenger. Those plans are now a reality as SMS is showing off the very first Signature Series SMS 570(X) model as the vehicles go into production.
As we first reported, the SMS Signature Series versions of the Challenger R/T will be offered in two horsepower trims, the SMS 570 with 500hp and the SMS 570X with 700hp.
Both versions received added power thanks to an SMS 296 Supercharger.
Each vehicle will also receive a host of performance upgrades including a high-flow exhaust and “Red Butterfly” induction hood. Additional aerodynamics, including a new Signature Series front bumper, rear bumper, side skirts and a rear spoiler help set the car apart. The 570X models will come with a different rear spoiler and will also include a carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber side splitters and a carbon fiber diffuser.
Additional upgrades include a performance suspension, 20-inch alloy wheels and six-piston calipers with 14-inch rotors in the front and 12-inch rotors in the rear.
Saleen has said that the SMS Limited Signature Series vehicles will have an interior trim to match the performance. Every Signature Series model will also come with special “Signature Series” serial number, sill plates, badges, floor mats and a dash that has been personally signed by Steve Saleen himself.
The SMS 570 is priced at roughly $60,000 and the 570X at $70,000. Vehicles can be purchased through SMS Limited or through your local Dodge dealership.
