US car maker Chrysler has unveiled a special-edition Mopar version of the Challenger. The sports car celebrates the longstanding relationship between the automaker and its aftermarket parts supplier.
Based on a 2010 Dodge Challenger, the vehicle received a modified look and greater performance. The Challenger’s 5.7 liter Hemi V8 engine got some Mopar enhancements. Furthemore there are a hood-venting system, a cold-air intake, a front strut tower brace with shock caps and a rear strut tower brace to stiffen the chassis.
The gloss-black wheels are 20 inch. There is a black-chromed grille surround, a T/A-style hood with vintage hood pins, a serialized dash plaque and Mopar logos on the car itself. The only color available is Brilliant Black paint, but there is a choice of three different stripe colors: Mopar Blue, Red or Silver. The interior stitching on the steering wheel and seats will match the chosen exterior stripe color.
Limited to only 500 pieces it is now available for pre-order. The Mopar ’10 will arrive in August priced at $ 38,000 for the automatic transmission and $ 39,000 for a manual with pistol-grip shifter. Additionally, 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.
