Power comes from the same 5.7-liter HEMI V8 with 370 horsepower and 395 lb.-ft. of torque found under the bonnet of the redesigned 2011 Charger R/T. However, the company promises improved acceleration thanks to the “Super Trac Pac” option, which includes a specially calibrated engine controller that is said to match maximum engine power and transmission shifting to the differential for the Mopar ’11 Charger.
The Mopar-ized Charger sticks with the company’s five-speed W5A580 automatic transmission, but as you’d expect, it gets a “Pistol Grip” shifter combined with Auto Stick. To improve acceleration, the differential features a new 3.91:1 final-drive ratio, with the company claiming that initial tests have returned a 0-to-60 mph (96 km/h) sprint time in the low five-second range.
The limited run Charger also sports changes to the chassis including the addition of larger solid stabilizer bars (front: 30mm, rear: 20mm) and cross-car braces at both the front and rear shock towers.
Stopping power is provided through vented rotors measuring 345mm x 28mm up front that are fitted with dual-piston, sliding calipers, while at the rear we find vented rotors measuring 320mm x 22mm, coupled with single-piston calipers. The car rides on bespoke 20-inch alloy wheels finished in a high gloss black color, shod with Goodyear F1 Supercar 245/45ZR20 tires at all four corners.
The Mopar 11’ Charger is available exclusively in “Pitch Black” finish with twin racing stripes in a blue hue. Aside from the wheels we mentioned previously, the the styling changes on the outside are limited to a Mopar front grille and rear-deck badge.
Interior touches consist of bespoke leather wrapped seats and steering wheel stitched in Mopar Blue thread, engine-turned instrument bezels, a special identification plaque identifying the car’s production number and a custom Mopar key fob. All cars also come with bright pedal covers, Mopar floor mats and front-door sill entry guards.
The car will be available for order from any Dodge dealer with an MSRP of $39,750, which includes destination fee.
