There is no vehicle more iconic than the head-turning Challenger, which serves as the perfect foundation to celebrate 100 years of Dodge style and performance. Based on the 2014 Dodge Challenger SXT Plus and R/T Plus models, the new 100th Anniversary Edition pays tribute to the brand’s history in contemporary Dodge style.

Taking the new Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker one step further, the Mopar brand revealed its new Mopar ’14 Challenger – the rarest limited-production Challenger model announced to date (only 100 to be made), with a distinct “Moparized” look. Additionally, the new Mopar ’14 is engineered to take on any combination of the three all-new “Scat Packages.”
Injecting a fresh shot of heritage into the Challenger lineup, the new 2014 R/T Shaker model features unique throwback muscle-car cues that link directly to Dodge brand’s performance legacy.
As the model name suggests, the legendary “cold-air grabbing” Shaker not only looks good with its Satin Black center-mounted hood scoop, snorkeling up from the engine compartment, it also directs cooler air back into the HEMI® V-8 engine. And like the original 1970 Challenger R/T with the Shaker hood, the new 2014 model continues the Dodge tradition of an engine-mounted hood scoop that “shakes” with the powertrain’s movement.
Scat Package 1 achieves a significant horsepower boost through three modifications, including a Mopar cold-air intake to provide increased air-flow into the engine, Mopar cat-back exhaust to free up downstream airflow, and an all-new performance calibrated engine controller, optimized to the 5.7-liter HEMI® engine.
In support of United Way for Southeastern Michigan (UWSEM), a package of Chrysler Group Chairman and CEO Sergio Marchionne’s customized 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 and Mopar’s latest HEMI® V-8 crate engine will be auctioned with all proceeds going to UWSEM. The auction will take place during the Barrett-Jackson auction in Palm Beach, Fla., April 4-6, 2013.
This special contribution runs concurrent with United Way’s annual community giving campaign that was launched in September with a $35 million fundraising goal for the organization. Marchionne, who serves as Campaign Chair for the campaign, helped kick-off the annual campaign on Sept. 14 with a symbolic torch lighting ceremony on Detroit’s Hart Plaza.
The Dodge Challenger is a beautiful retro themed coupe. All the line-ups come with an array of features. The base version of the 2013 model has automatic climate control, power windows, locks and mirrors, cruise control, CD player, trip computer, keyless entry, and a power driver’s seat. You will get plush Nappa leather seats in SXT models. Heated front seats, ParkSense park assist, fog lamps are the additional features. The Rallye Redline edition comes with lower axle ratio, performance suspension, bigger disc brakes and steering tune. The Rallye model has a typical ‘bad boy’ look about it. The higher models come with Boston Acoustics Premium, HID headlamps, navigation system and in-car wireless internet with a plug in cell network data dongle.
This muscle car icon – 1970 Dodge Challenger “Insidious” is what we say a rolling work of art. Sure, it’s a fully functional and fast vehicle with all of the amenities a modern pro-touring car has, but it’s the details which sets this Challenger aside. Dubbed “Insidious” by its creator Dave Salvaggio, this rolling sculpture packs ten pounds of attitude into a five pound box. Some of the features are Hundreds of subtle body modifications, Hilborn-injected 426 Hemi, Five speed manual, Two tone, show-winning paint, Incredible custom interior and MASSIVE presence!
When the new 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 debuted at the SEMA show in Las Vegas on October 30, 2007, Dodge went looking for people with the talent to showcase the best of the original. Original drag race cars were found, restored originals wore assembly-line fresh restorations, and Insidious went as the embodiment of creativity and customization.

This rare Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 is a result from very productive co-work. For years Pennzoil and Penske Racing have collaborated on track-proven technology that aids performance and improves efficiency. So, Pennzoil thought it would be a cool idea to create a custom, Penske-themed street car. And Penske, dominating NASCAR with Dodge’s top models, figured the brand’s all-American Challenger would be a perfect starting point. Hands were shook, papers were signed and, before we knew it, Dodge had shipped Penske a copy of its latest and greatest Challenger: the mighty SRT8 392. Fans of each brand were then encouraged to spread the word and, even if they didn’t want to buy any of the companies’ products, enter the contest. And finally, the car you see here, Pennzoil Challenger number 001 of 001, was given to one lucky contestant. If you’re a Mopar collector who wants the ultimate late model Challenger, make no mistake, this car is the ultimate trump card!
In September of 2011 Pennzoil announced their “Join the Pursuit” sweepstakes, offering this Penske Racing-inspired Challenger SRT8 392 as the grand prize. As the only 1 of 1 Challenger Chrysler has ever built, this car is entirely unique — evidenced by its Pennzoil Limited Edition dash plaque that simply reads “001/001”. And with only 1,455 miles on its soft green odometer, it’s a black on black boulevard bruiser that’s factory fresh in virtually every way! You know, we’ve sold or driven just about every variation of the new Challenger, from Mr. Norm’s, to Saleens and even Hennessey cars. And from a total driving experience, this is probably the best one we’ve ever found. The car’s drivetrain, brakes and suspension have been fine tuned to the max, and our own CEO even said the car probably wouldn’t have made it to the sales floor if he had more garage space.

As part of Mopar’s 75th anniversary celebration and the 2012 edition of the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show, Mopar and the Street and Racing Technology (SRT) team collaborated with comedian Jeff Dunham and his crew from Palmer’s Customs of Camarillo, Calif., to create a custom 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8. Mopar, SRT, and Dunham revealed the modern-day hot rod, dubbed Project UltraViolet, today at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.
Dunham is a lifelong car enthusiast and well-known comedian who premiered his fifth special, “Minding the Monsters” on Comedy Central earlier this month and will launch his new “Disorderly Conduct” tour next month in Canada.
“It’s a major understatement to say that I’ve been looking forward to the SEMA show this year, as we’ve had an awesome time creating this one-of-a-kind Challenger,” said Dunham, who touts the 1970 Plymouth Barracuda “as my favorite muscle car of all time” and recently purchased a 1970 numbers-matching four-speed convertible ‘Cuda as proof.

Finished in classic Gold Metallic with beautiful matching interior and Black convertible top. This magnificent muscle car has been beautifully restored and is now ready to be shown or driven. This is the famed Mod Squad car that was specially built as a 1972 Challenger for the famed TV show, Mod Squad. Only two 1972 E-body convertibles exist and this is fully documented and certified. I personally believe this Challenger is among one of the most important Mopar cars on the market today. Seldom does one get a chance to acquire a car of this magnitude at an investment price – US $99,500.00 from Daniel Schmitt & Co.. Read more!
