Dodge is almost done with launching the special edition Last Call Challengers and Chargers, with its latest, the 2023 Challenger Black Ghost, representing the sixth of seven delivery variants for the V-8-powered muscle car. The Black Ghost is based on the SRT Hellcat Redeye widebody model, but increases the output of the supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 by 10 horsepower to a total of 807 horsepower.
The name Black Ghost comes from the 1970 Challenger R/T SE that roamed the streets of Detroit five decades ago. Owned by a man named Godfrey Qualls, who was a Detroit motorcycle cop at the time, Black ’70 Challenger gains legendary status for showing up at the draglight races on Woodward Avenue and other local trails, winning, and then disappearing at night like a 426 Hemi powered sighting. The original Black Ghost was inducted into the National Register of Historic Vehicles in 2020 after Qualls’ son Gregory helped restore it to roadworthy status when his father bestowed the car on him before his death in 2015. The car is still owned by the Qualls family. family.
For the 2023 homage, Dodge will paint the 300 Challenger Hellcat Redeyes in Pitch Black with a black faux leather vinyl roof that mimics the original look. The Black Ghost Edition also features a chrome “Dodge” front badge, white stripes on the rear fender, and a chrome “Challenger” script badge on the grille, front fender, and rear spoiler. The Black Ghost uses 20-inch Satin Carbon alloy wheels, and braking power comes via black six-piston Brembo brakes.
The interior is also black, with seats and doors wrapped in Alcantara and Laguna leather and a red SRT logo adorning the Alcantara steering wheel. The instrument panel receives a custom Black Ghost badge that includes the iconic Dodge Fratzog logo and gator scale pattern, as well as a carbon fiber bezel. Orders open this fall, and you can expect the Black Ghost to cost a lot more than the standard $87,340 Challenger Hellcat Redeye.
