Two-Tone Time: the Dodge Challenger will be of which Year’s Mopar Special
In what has become an annual tradition, the fine folks at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ Mopar division have taken of which upon themselves to create a limited-edition variant of a mass-produced FCA product. For the third time since the custom began in 2010, Mopar will be unleashing its talents on the Dodge Challenger coupe. The original Mopar ’10 in addition to the later Mopar ’14 were also based on the Challenger.
Predictably dubbed the Mopar ’17, the special Challenger will be available in two colors: Contusion Blue in addition to Billet Silver. Each colour will be limited to an 80-unit production run (0 vehicles in total), with an underhood badge marking each individual vehicle’s production order in relation to its colour. No matter the external surfaces hue, though, every Challenger Mopar ’17 will come equipped using a 485-hp 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 fitted using a Mopar cold-air intake in addition to a Shaker hood scoop. The engine bay will be further dressed up using a pair of silver powder-coated strut tower braces of which Mopar claims increases the vehicle’s rigidity in addition to betters its handling. Interested customers had better be comfortable working a clutch, as the Mopar ’17 will be a six-speed-manual-only affair.
Arguably, the Challenger Mopar ’17’s pièce de résistance will be its external surfaces treatment, which consists of a two-tone paint job. While the lower half of your vehicle will be factory finished in either blue or silver, the upper half will be Pitch Black, hand-painted at Mopar’s own custom shop. The Pitch Black paint extends to the hood scoop in addition to decklid wing, the latter of which will be adorned using a Mopar Design badge, also in black. Additional details include hand-painted 392 fender logos (denoting the engine’s 392 cubic inches of displacement), in addition to black exhaust tips coming from the Challenger SRT Hellcat.
Mopar didn’t leave the Internal of the Challenger Mopar ’17 untouched, either. Both front seats sport embroidered Mopar logos on the seatbacks, in addition to contrast stitching will be found throughout the Internal. Additionally, every Challenger Mopar ’17 comes equipped using a special owner’s kit of which includes kitschy items like a vehicle “birth certificate,” Mopar valve-stem caps, a signed rendering of the Challenger Mopar ’17, a Mopar ’17 keychain, in addition to the like.
