Click above for a high-res gallery of the Mopar-accessorized Dodge Challenger R/T

The Dodge Challenger remains by far one of the most exciting offerings in Chrysler's lineup, and in addition to the R/T Classic edition, Dodge had on display an R/T on display complete with the latest products from its Mopar catalog. The car you see here comes with Nostalgia wheels ($561 each), Go-Wing spoiler ($307), carbon fiber engine cover ($313), cold air intake ($359), cat-back exhaust system ($1,155), performance shifter ($680), coilover suspension kit ($1,704), Katzkin leather seats ($1,240), T/A hood, and more. Some of the parts seem a little expensive, but the Moparized Challenger looks absolutely retrotastic in a more subtle way than the aforementioned Classic R/T. Decide for yourself by browsing the high-res gallery below.

      The Hood scoop looks cool as hell but it's not functional! I hate that.

      I saw this car at the Chicago Auto Show yesterday. If I had the dough to plunk down on any car there, this would have been the car. I would not need some of the aftermarket stuff that was on it, but I must say this car is very sharp. By the way the shifter is a Hurst with an old style white ball on it. Very retro, very sharp. I was very disapointed in the Camaro, I did not sit in the SS, but I did sit in the regular model, and it had a sunroof, and my head was hitting the roof, I am only 5'9'', this should not be a problem for me. I actually had to crouch down in the seat, this would not make for comfortable driving. Dash was very poorly laid out too compared to the Challenger. Dash only had the tach and speedo, no additional guages.

      hood scoop (when looked at from front 3/4 view) looks like:

        lol shut your mouth chevy fanboy.....

        challenger exterior accesories are great but go aftermarket for price not OEM. The rims are nice ...if you get the classic package you get a load of stuff including the rims for 1400..plus b5 blue mmmmmmmmmmmmm.

        camaro what?


        the camaro is nice as well.........under the hood....lol

      Smokin hot as usual. For Chrysler to be on a pulse monitor they sure know how to keep the heart beat up. The Challenger and the NEW Mustang are blowing right by the Camaro while Chevy drags their feet and plays it safe.

      Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. I am warming up to the Challenger more and more. It will be a shame if Chrysler does not live on in some form.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Hmm, Challenger-Camaro, I mean at least make one of them look somewhat different.
      • 6 Years Ago
      mopar stuff is always priced pretty high but you can get it for much better pricing very easily. I have pondered a black TA hood for my silver SRT8.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Much better than stock ride height. I wonder how well it drives with the suspension kit?
      • 6 Years Ago
      $561 a piece for those Torque Thrust knock-offs?? Are they kidding? They better at least be forged...but sheesh $1200 for a cat-back and $680 for a shifter? WTF are they thinking? No one is going to pay that much for OEM aftermarket parts that aren't as good as regular aftermarket stuff. And then only $300 for a CF engine cover? Please...it looks like faux CF anyway. The coilovers are pretty much the only things worth the cost.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yeah, that hood cover does look a lot like carbon fauxber to me too.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Well, some people will pay extra for something from the factory that has a warranty.

      i love the price of the 'cold air' intake. it's a single-piece pipe, with about 1.5 bends in it, and a cone filter (ok and a couple couplings and hose clamps). i will assume it is carb exempt, so it will automatically add $100+ to the price.
      my old 'taco bell short ram' intake could prob do just as well, for the cost of just the hose clamps, coupler and cone filter (taco bell 32 oz cup prices vary based on your market area and preference for a 'fresh soda filled' cup or a 'picked from the garbage bin' cup).
        • 6 Years Ago
        i take it back, i see the black box now. so it's more like an afe intake, only $100 more (and i forgot about the 2 extra holes cut into the pipe, that adds cost too).

        but where is the $680 shifter? was it on back order? i don't see it in the 1 interior shot...

        oh and damn, make sure you don't sit any non-amputees in the back seat (911 anyone?)

      Carbon fiber engine cover is nicer than stock, but I'd still rather see the engine itself in a car like this.
      • 6 Years Ago
      A brand new hood with fake scoop to replace my old one with fake scoops? Awesome!
