Dodge has released a Performance Appearance Pacakage for their Challenger. While it doesn’t actually make it go any faster, I think it’s a rather good package nonetheless.
The package was developed along with Chrysler Group’s tuning division, Mopar. It costs $1,995. For that money, you get a new hood with a hood scoop, a rear spoiler, and strobe stripe graphics. Pay an extra $945 (or $780 if you have a manual gearbox), and the interior will get outfitted as well, with a Mopar T-handle shifter, bright pedal kit (automatic only), bright door sill guards, premium floor mats and a car cover.
