Bummed because you missed your chance to buy a vintage “Sublime” Challenger? Did you consider buying a “Snakeskin Green” Viper, just to fuel you passion for neon green Mopars? Dodge has good news for those who love the new Challenger, but prefer their paint the color of radioactive waste: both the Challenger R/T Classic and the Challenger SRT8 392 will be available in “Green With Envy” for the 2011 model year. Like the “Snakeskin Green” Vipers, you’ll have absolutely no chance of ever losing your car in a parking lot, and you will most definitely not blend in with the rest of the muscle car crowd.
The 2011 Challenger R/T Classic comes with a newly upgraded, performance tuned suspension and a 5.7 liter Hemi V8 engine good for 375 horsepower. Limited edition Green With Envy models include body side striping, unique five spoke wheels and a Dark Slate leather interior with green accent stitching. All Challenger R/T Classic models get functional hood scoops, HID lights, heated front seats, a Boston Accoustics sound system and the Super Track Pack. The Track Pack gives you quick ratio steering, high friction brake pads, stiffer monotube shocks, 245/45R20 Goodyear Eagle F1 tires and three mode ESC with a “full off” setting. Sticker price for a Green With Envy R/T will be $35,785.
If that’s not fast enough for you, stepping up to the SRT8 will get you a 6.4 liter Hemi V8, good for 470 horsepower. It also gets you the SRT sport seats (also in Dark Slate with green stitching), unique five spoke wheels, SRT8 392 badging, body side striping and all the standard features of the R/T Classic. Sticker price for the Green With Envy SRT 8 Challengers will be $44,875.
Both limited edition models begin production in Brampton, Ontario later this month, with deliveries expected by the end of March. Quantities are limited, so if neon green is your thing, don’t put off a trip to your local Dodge dealer too much longer. If your tastes don’t run to extreme colors but you still have a thing for the Challenger, Dodge will sell you a more subdued R/T Classic starting at $34,790 or an SRT8 starting at $44,380.
