The Dodge Challenger was an outrageous machine from the moment it first hit the pavement (most likely on the drag strip). That’s the oil crisis where it met its demise after being rebadged as a Mitsubishi Galant.
Fast forward to 2005, and…
Dodge shocked the automotive world with teaser shots of a modern take on the original 1970s Challenger. The official concept was shown in 2006 at the Chicago Auto Show, with the newly refreshed 5th generation Ford Mustang as its prime target.
Being officially launched in 2008, the first model year only delivered the SRT8 models packing the almighty 6.1L 425p HEMI V8. The 2009 model year is when we saw a full-blown lineup of the Challenger.
The following year, MOPAR introduced a special edition, built in the Brampton, Ontario factory. Customers would have the choice of the new Pentastar V6 SXT model or the big-buff HEMI v8 RT version.
In 2013, Dodge launched its newest MOPAR edition Challenger at SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. The legendary HEMI-mounted “Shaker” hood was back from the dead, after first being introduced on the 1970s R/T model.
Other performance mods include a new exhaust system, and a performance suspension system with lowering springs.
Out of the 100 units built for the global market, Dodge limited the Canadian market’s production to 10 units. This specific model is the number 10 out of the 10 allocations.
