Last year, Dodge gave us the Mopar Challenger, which featured special paint and graphics and an incredibly frequent use of the Mopar name and logo throughout the car. This year, it’s the Charger’s turn, and Dodge has just announced a special edition Mopar ’11 version of the newly freshened Charger. Limited to just 1,000 copies, the Mopar ’11 Charger gets the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8, good for 370 horsepower and 395 ft lb of torque, Dodge’s Super Trac Pac option and a specially re-calibrated ECU. The rear gets 3.91:1 gearing for maximum thrust off the line, and the Mopar ’11 Charger is said to run from zero to sixty in well under six seconds.

The chassis has been tuned for better handling as well, and the car get larger front and rear stabilizer bars. Cross-braces stiffen the front and rear shock towers, and the Charger rides on unique 20”, five-spoke wheels shod with 245/45ZR20 Goodyear F1 Supercar tires. Color choices are limited to “Pitch Black” with a pair of Mopar Blue racing stripes running the length of the car. Inside, buyers get Katzkin leather seats stitched with Mopar Blue thread (and bearing the Mopar logo, of course). Instrument bezels feature an engine-turned finish, and each car gets an identification plaque and custom Mopar key fob Badge. If you want one, you’d best hurry – Dodge is only building 900 for the United States and 100 for Canada, at a price of $39,750 each.
