Dodge unleashes limited-edition Mopar ’10 Challenger

Arriving in American dealerships next month is the Mopar ’10 Challenger, built as a special edition version of the retro-inspired muscle car it will be produced in a limited number of 500 examples. Based off a Challenger R/T with the 5.7-litre Hemi V8, the Mopar ’10 edition gets a range of performance and styling parts directly off Mopar’s shelves.

Mopar kicks it off by adding a bonnet scoop, cold-air intake, front strut brace, unique engine cover and a strut-tower brace. Chrysler hasn’t released official performance figures, but these modifications probably draw out an additional 10 or 15 horses.

The special edition Challenger will be available exclusively in Brilliant Black and a choice of three accent colors (Mopar Blue, Red or Silver) that appear on side striping and are repeated in the stitching on the steering wheel and seats.

The Mopar ’10 also comes with 20-inch forged heritage gloss-black wheels, black-chromed grille surround, and  Mopar logos and graphics on the front fascia, hood, hood-pin caps, body-side stripes, windows and on the chromed fuel door. A special Mopar 2010 cover will also be thrown in with the vehicle.

Inside, the muscle-coupe gets Katzkin leather seating, custom leather-wrapped steering wheel with baseball-style stitching, Mopar shift handles (T-handle for automatics, Pistol Grip for manuals), and a special dash plaque with the Mopar ’10 logo.

Stateside pricing for the Mopar ’10 Challenger starts from about $38,000 (about $53,500 NZ) for the automatic model and from $39,000 for the self-shifting manual version.
