The 2010 Mopar Challenger was released in the States last year and proved an instant hit. Mopar fans went crazy for the machine and with Chrysler only offering 500 copies of the model, they sold out rapidly. Now in 2011, the all-new Dodge Charger is filling up Dodge showrooms around America, and Chrysler aren’t going to miss a trick by not giving some special vehicles a full Mopar makeover.
As a signal of intent, Chrysler has released a first teaser sketch of its forthcoming special edition model. The rendering shows off a black and blue color scheme similar to that of the Challenger, but the side stripes have been replaced with a stripe that stretches across the bonnet, roof and boot. The Mopar team has also dropped the bulbous hood scoop for the model, opting for a more streamlined appearance.
In terms of power, Team Pentastar hasn’t announced which engine the Mopar Charger will receive, but the automaker does promise that engineers have increased performance. That may mean Dodge’s new 470-horsepower, 6.4 litre V8 is laying under the bonnet but all will be revealed when Chrysler unveils its hotted-up sports sedan at an upcoming event.
