Hurst Silver and Black Series 4 Challenger - Click above for a high-res image gallery

We happen to love the gold theme on the Hurst Challenger, whether paired with black or white paint, but we could see why not everyone would want something so...gold. Apparently Hurst felt the same way, and has announced that customers can now choose a silver and black paint scheme with red trim, coinciding with the company's traditional colors.

The cars, all of which come with a unique production number and certificate of authenticity from Hurst, feature a red anodized pistol grip shifter, 20-inch forged wheels with graphite gray painted spoke inserts, red perforated leather inserts and stitching, and Hurst logos on the dash, grille, wheel caps, floor mats, and on the front fenders. The Performance Series cars also come standard with Eibach suspension upgrades, a Magnaflow exhaust system, BFGoodrich KDW tires, and an optional Vortech supercharger. Hit the jump for Hurst's press release and get your visual appetite sated by checking out the gallery below.

PRESS RELEASE:

Hurst Performance Vehicles, one of the most recognized and revered names in automobile history, unveiled the first-ever Series 4 Supercharged 2010 Hurst/Hemi Challenger, dressed in the signature silver and black Hurst colors at the "Back to the Bricks" celebration in Flint, Mich.

Hurst legend, Doc Watson, joined Nate Shelton and Ron Flint of Hurst Performance Vehicles to unveil this newest addition to the Hurst Performance Series, which is complete with red accent stripes and detail throughout.

"We are honored to be here in Flint today to introduce the newest Hurst Executive Hot Rod," said Nate Shelton, Chairman of Hurst. "The Back to the Bricks celebration is the perfect place for us to join Doc and introduce this stunning car as a tribute to Hurst's legacy."

The numbered silver and black Challengers come equipped with a wild red anodized HARD-DRIVE® pistol grip Hurst shifter and 20" one-piece polished aluminum Hurst forged wheels, featuring graphite gray painted spoke insets and red and black Hurst logo wheel centers. Hurst collaborated with Katzkin on the car's black leather interior, which features perforated red inserts, red top-stitching and logos. Each Challenger contains traditional Hurst red and black logos in the dash badge, grille badge, wheel centers, fender graphics and the embroidered floor mats.

Doc Watson and Hurst introduced the silver and black Hurst/Olds with GM in 1968, a program that went on to be the most famous Hurst production program ever.

"I am proud to be part of the continuation of a great Hurst tradition." said Watson. "These wonderful vehicles should prove to be some of the most collectible Hurst cars in the future."

Hurst limited edition cars are well known by enthusiasts worldwide and are some of the most iconic and valuable muscle cars sought out by collectors. The cars are readily recognizable due to Hurst's signature paint schemes and graphics.

The Performance Series cars are a limited numbered series. Each comes with a sequentially numbered dash badge and its own Certificate of Authenticity. These cars all feature Hurst's own AIR-SPEED® rear deck spoiler painted in body colors, Hurst/Eibach suspension, shocks and sway bars, Hurst/Magnaflow polished stainless steel cat-back exhaust, BF Goodrich KDW Performance Tires, Hurst/Katzkin leather interior, embroidered logo floor mats, a custom car cover and K&N Air Filters. Hurst cars feature painted stripes and graphics under clear, not stickers. SERIES 3 through 5 feature HURST/Vortech superchargers.

The HURST/Hemi®-Challenger is available in five performance stages. Series 2 vehicles are available through participating Dodge dealers nationwide, while Series 3, 4 and 5 vehicles are only available from Hurst Performance Vehicles and can be ordered via the company's website at www.hurst-performance.com.

        Can't wait for a series that actually tries to lighten this damned car up.
      • 5 Years Ago
      want. now.

      I normally don't like the new Challenger at all, especially in that signature orange that it comes in – but THIS is really nice. Well done. Love the rims, and that profile view is vicious. Bright colors are great but on big cars like this, they work best in small doses.

      Looks nice!

      Yawn. Call me when Hurst does a "Hemi Under Glass" Challenger...
      • 5 Years Ago
      Somehow this just works. I like it.

      check out the September 2034 issue of Hemming's Muscle Machines for an article about how rare and how desirable this overweight behemoth is-because print media and muscle car buffs will still be around then....

      I really want this car! and it has the pistol grip shifter!!!
      • 5 Years Ago
      That's my home town so I got to see it unveiled in person. Looks really nice, I like.

      this is the BEST AMERICAN CAR by far nowadays.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Best American Car, built in Brampton Ontario isn't it? Or are these reworked in the USA. I would assume built on the assy line with everything else.

      KC.

      Great, now the Challenger is Mustanged' up with 50 redneck editions.

      Nothing kills the brand image better than a set of tacky racing stripes.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Somehow I just can't tie the words "Hurst shifter" and "redneck" together at all. This is a legendary paint scheme on the Challenger, and I for one thinks it works beautifully.

        Oh, and as for the "tacky" (as you call them) racing stripes hurting the brand image, tell that to the people that own a Shelby Cobra 427, GT350/500, Ferrari F430 Scuderia, etc., etc....
