Dodge Celebrates the Challenger’s 40th Anniversary With Limited-Edition Furious Fuscia Models

16 Feb

To celebrate the 40-year anniversary of the Dodge Challenger, two rare 2010 Dodge Challenger models will soon be made available; the 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic and the Challenger SRT8 Furious Fuchsia editions.

“Commemorating four decades of Challenger performance, the new R/T Classic and SRT8 Furious Fuchsia editions modernize one of the most memorable hues from 1970 to create a modern muscle-car that exudes more performance, passion and even more nostalgia,” said Ralph Gilles, President and Chief Executive Officer, Dodge Car Brand and Senior Vice President-Product Design, Chrysler Group LLC. “As an ode to our Dodge fans, these highly collectible models feature all-new Pearl White leather performance seats with Furious Fuchsia accents to deliver a customized, yet contemporary look to the heritage-inspired interior. Sum it all up, and Dodge is delivering a muscle-car tribute that no other manufacturer can even match.”

The 2010 Dodge Challenger has all of the best American muscle-car characteristics and accommodates five passengers with best-in-class rear head and leg room, along with best-in-class cargo space.

With three models of styling, to legendary HEMI V-8 engine choices, up to 25 highway mpg, more than 25 safety and security features and modern amenities, it’s no surprise Dodge Challenger was awarded J.D. Power and Associates “Most Appealing Midsize Sporty Car” in its 2009 APEAL Study.

Both Furious Fuchsia editions will be available for order at Dodge dealerships nationwide in March.

The 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic Furious Fuchsia features dual throwback A-line body-side R/T stripes in Matte Black or Bright White, “Challenger” fender badges, large 20-inch polished-aluminum heritage wheels with all-season performance tires, classic egg-crate grille with heritage “R/T” badge, body-color rear spoiler, functional hood scoop and bright racing style fuel-filler door.

When paired with the Tremec six-speed manual transmission, the 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T Classic Furious Fuchsia edition includes the Track Pak with precision-shift “pistol-grip” shifter, anti-spin 3.92 differential and a performance-tuned dual exhaust with two low-restriction bottle resonators. The car can accelerate from 0-60 in less than six seconds with its powerful 376 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft. of torque 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine.

The 400 ultra-exclusive 2010 Dodge Challenger SRT8 version delivers even more punch with a 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 engine block, producing 425 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque. It also includes the all-new Pearl White leather SRT performance seats with Furious Fuschia accented stripe, unique 20-inch SRT forged aluminum wheels with Satin Black accents, serialized dash plaque indicating the limited production series of 400 and retro-inspired chromed quad-exhaust tips.
