The Final Drive of the Dodge Challenger Hellcat


After 16 successful years, Dodge is bidding farewell to the Challenger with a series of “Last Call” models, including the Black Ghost special edition. This limited model pays homage to the legendary 1970 Challenger R/T SE known as the “Black Ghost,” boasting extra power and style to make it truly stand out.

The Black Ghost: A Legendary Tribute

Commissioned by Godfrey Qualls, a paratrooper and Detroit traffic cop, the original Black Ghost had a reputation for dominating Detroit street racers with its mysterious appearances and disappearances. The 2023 Challenger Black Ghost edition honors this iconic model with a unique blend of power and style.

Powerful Performance

With a supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine producing 807 horsepower and a 0-60 mph time of 3.8 seconds, the Black Ghost is a force to be reckoned with on the road. Hood pins, darkened grille, and retro Challenger script pay homage to the original, while modern upgrades add a touch of luxury.

Thrilling Driving Experience

Although the cabin may feel dated, the driving experience is anything but. An eight-speed automatic transmission sends power to the rear wheels, allowing for exhilarating acceleration and factory-sanctioned burnouts. The Challenger Black Ghost is a pure joy to drive, especially in a straight line.

Price and Legacy

As Dodge prepares for an electric future, the Black Ghost serves as a fitting tribute to the legacy of the Challenger. With a limited production of 300 units priced at $99,315 each, this special edition encapsulates the essence of the iconic muscle car while looking towards the future of performance vehicles.
