There’s nothing like being overly cryptic for building up intrigue and keeping the rumor mill flowing. This is exactly the situation with Dodge and their latest release of teaser videos to promote the final Last Call Dodge Challenger.
The idea behind the last call vehicles is to provide a fitting sendoff to the iconic Hemi V8 platform with exclusive models that reference classics of the past. This last edition has to be something special for the fans, so a series of teaser videos have been released by Dodge hinting at potential performance levels.
We’ve never been in the business of trying to dissect and reconstruct the hidden meanings behind such videos. We are just boring like that, prefering to wait for the official release to find out the exact offering. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t implement your own detective work. Maybe figuring out ahead of time the performance levels, may just tip the balance to put in a cheeky order for one of these future classics.
Current conclusions to the teaser videos point at a top speed of 215 mph, a quarter mile time of 8.99 seconds, over 900HP, and 105 octane fuel. Plus, the presence of a few leprechauns for good measure in the videos, who aren’t the usual fun-loving and happy characters, but rather angry types in their demeanour.
Everything will be revealed on March 20, 2022 in Las Vegas, with the obvious hope that this is one of the most potent Dodge Challengers ever produced.
Currently, each vehicle in the last call lineup has its own under-hood plaque, with old-school paint jobs such as Destroyer Gray, Plum Crazy, Sublime, and B5 Blue.
In terms of the individual models, we currently have the Black Ghost, based on the SRT hellcat Redeye widebody with 807 HP. The shakedown special edition, the Swinger Special edition, and the blacktop package with a 5.7L Hemi V8 with ‘345’ badging.
