Dodge Challenger Mopar Edition - Click above for high-res image gallery

The Chevrolet Camaro might have a dominating presence on the show floor at SEMA, but there were still a handful of Dodge Challengers to wave the Mopar flag. This particular example was found tucked away in the Chrysler display described as a "Mopar Edition" and features two dozen items straight from the Mopar catalog. Some are as simple as the hood pin kit ($71), while other upgrades are more substantial like the Stage II coilover suspension system ($1,750).

We especially liked the Mopar Edition hood decal even though it's a bit pricey at $350, and the set of five-spoke, 20-inch aluminum wheels would be on our wish list as well. Follow the jump for the full list of parts installed on the car, and decide what would go on your own Mopar Challenger.

      I think that of the 3 "new-borns" the Challenger stays the closest to its original roots of design, with soft gentle alterations that one has to actually look for. It's abeautiful design. 2nd is the Ford Mustang - but the one I do not like is the Camaro. It's design is all over the place. Worst part is the front, with that "smiley" grille. The overall shape of the Camaro is excellent. They captured the essence of the car - but the smaller parts do not fit the design, the taillamps are ugly as is the front end. A day at the beauty parlor would help it.
      The Hurst 500 Dodge Chakkenger is THE one - but, where do ya find one ??
      Case in point: Headliners. Ford = Weaved threads set into fiberboard-like material. Camaro? The Same. Challenger? Velvet with a padding on the underside. Back Seat? Challenger offers a big fold-down armrest, with cupholders too. Back seat in Camaro & Mustang ? Park Bench.

      dang it mopar, why must you 1/2 way do everything.

      did you have to sell your tape measure when filing ch11 to learn how to properly fit wheels?

      chrome wheels with red/matte everything else?

      mudflaps with wheelgap?

      this is an awesome car for something that'd roll up to the saturday night old-man cruises, but this is a mediocre at best filler car for sema floorspace. those booths aren't cheap, put something out there that really showcases your product at its best. this looks like something you'd find in a high school parking lot or at a freshman orientation at a college, in other words, this is a great example of "my 1st little off-the-shelf parts installed by someone else while i pay 150% retail because i don't know any better car" playset.

      The wheels are part of the classic pack. But the coilovers give the car the 'just right' look and stance.

      Not digging the spoiler, would prefer the standard ducktail.

        I agree on the "just right look", but I kind of like the spoiler. It gives it a subtle difference from other Challengers. Sometimes different is good. Get rid of the mud flaps and the big Mopar M on the hood though.

      unless this car is 40% smaller, I'm not buying it.
        • 5 Years Ago
        it should be bigger not smaller!

      Love the car. Always loved the Mopars. My suggestion is toss out the hood stripes and the Mopar "M" and black out the entire hood and give it a "shaker". Also, make the strobe stripes more like the old AAR 'Cuda stripes. Run them down the length of the body. This incarnation of the strobe stripes look like they ran out of money and has to cut them short. Toss out the T-handle shifter and give it a pistol grip style one. Keep the wheels, can even keep the spoiler, but ditch the mudflaps.
      I may be too nostalgic for the old Mopars, but I think if we are going to do this retro thing (which I am not opposed to), we should adopt some more of the old "finishing touches" that the old performance muscle had.
      Still, would love to have one "as shown" parked in my garage!

      Goodness me!
      • 5 Years Ago
      mudflaps are for motorhomes and pickup trucks

      Finally!!! See those wheels - those look right. Those wheel complement that car.

      Remember the photos of the 2010 Legacy VIP SEMA edition (Link: http://i38.tinypic.com/2d94fh4.jpg ) Those wheels look like you're either a drug dealer or a pimp. That's completely wrong.

      those mudflaps and the spoiler ruin the car imo
