DETROIT — Chrysler unveiled the first special-edition Mopar version of the Challenger today, a celebration of the longstanding relationship between the automaker and its dedicated aftermarket parts supplier.
“Our Mopar ’10 Challenger is a collaboration of two iconic brands with tremendous heritage,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC in a statement.
Mopar ’10 Challenger is based on a 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T, modified for a new look and greater performance. Equipment includes the Challenger’s 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine concealed by a unique engine cover, along with a variety of other Mopar enhancements. A hood-venting system, a cold-air intake and a front strut tower brace with shock caps are part of the package, as is a rear strut tower brace to stiffen the chassis.
Available now for pre-order, the Mopar ’10 will arrive in August priced at $38,000 for the automatic transmission, and $39,000 for a manual tranny with pistol-grip shifter. Mopar will build only 500 of these models, available only in Brilliant Black paint with a choice of three different stripe colors: Mopar Blue, Red or Silver. Interior stitching on the steering wheel and seats will match the exterior stripe color.
Twenty-inch forged heritage gloss-black wheels, a black-chromed grille surround, a functional, vented T/A-style hood with vintage hood pins, a serialized dash plaque and Mopar logos galore round out the package.
Bonus: A special Mopar ’10 car cover and an owner’s kit that includes a limited-edition sketch of the vehicle signed by Chrysler Group Design Chief Mark Trostle come with the purchase.
