The essence of the ‘Last Call’ Dodge Chargers and Challengers is to offer limited edition vehicles to essentially mark the end of the ICE era. Most diehard muscle car fans will see this as the end of the story for the V8, but really it should be the mark of a new chapter. For the moment, we should celebrate what these ‘Last Call’ cars have to offer, with hopefully a nice surprise with the seventh special edition model. Six of these models have already been announced.
1. 2023 Dodge Challenger Shakedown
The swirly hood stripes of the Dodge Challenger Shakedown is the first limited edition model to be announced. This Dodge Challenger comes in the form of a R/T Scat Pack and R/T Scat Pack Widebody, with 500 models being available.
Engine-wise, we have a 6.4-liter Hemi V8, good for 485hp and 475 lb.ft. of torque, with a special edition grille, graphics, and badging.
2. 2023 Dodge Charger Super Bee
I don’t know if it’s because of the ‘Plum Crazy’ paint job or I just like the body shape of the Charger. Either way, the 2023 Dodge Charger Super Bee is a fine looking vehicle.
This version comes in a R/T Scat Pack and a R/T Scat Pack Widebody edition, with a 6.4-liter Hemi V8. The ‘Plum Crazy’ version being available in the wide-body models and B5 Blue for the standard Scat Pack models. Radial tires, badging and graphics come with each model.
3. 2023 Dodge Charger Swinger
As with all the ‘Last Call’ models, they are influenced by late sixties and early seventies, golden era muscle cars. This one takes notes from the ‘Dodge Dart fun Swinger package’ of the ’60s with 1000 models being available.
This one also has a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 and comes in the colors of Sublime Green, F8 Green, and White Knuckle.
4. 2023 Dodge Challenger Swinger
Basically, the Challenger version of the model above. Wrapped around a Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody, this version is limited to 1000 models, with unique badging, wheels, and decals.
5. 2023 Dodge Charger King Daytona
Based on the Dodge Charger Hellcat Redeye, the Charger King Daytona harks back to the ‘Big Willie’ Robinson 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona and old-school drag racing days.
Power is the essence of this model, with a 6.2-liter V8, good for 807 hp, and is finished off in orange accent stitching, King Daytona graphics, and ‘Go Mango’ paint. Only 300 examples will be made available in this version.
6. 2023 Dodge Charger Black Ghost
The sixth iteration is based on the 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T SE ‘Black Ghost’, originally housing a 426 Hemi V8, being as rare as rocking horse….
Only 300 examples will be made available, based on the Hellcat Redeye. Eye-catching features include the Gator Grain vinyl roof(we all loved them really back in the day, but they were a massive pain to clean when dirty..) and white bumblebee stripes.
According to the Dodge website, the seventh and final special edition model will be announced, ‘at the 2022 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, scheduled for Nov. 1-4, 2022.’
