Black Ghost Dodge Challenger Redeye Pays Homage to a Detroit Street Racer

Today, Dodge introduced the sixth of seven Last Call models which will be offered for the 2023 Challenger and/or Charger. This time, it is the Black Ghost special edition, which is a uniquely-dressed SRT Hellcat Redeye with 807 horsepower that is designed as a tribute to a legendary Detroit street racer – who also happened to be a local police officer.

“There are so many legendary muscle cars in Dodge brand history, it was hard to choose the seven vehicles we wanted to pay homage to with our Last Call lineup, but the Black Ghost was an easy pick,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand chief executive officer – Stellantis. “The 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost is the prelude to what we’re going to unveil with our seventh and final special-edition model.”

Dodge will build just 300 examples of the 2023 Challenger Black Ghost special edition package, all of which are based on the SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody in Pitch Black, but like the Jailbreak and Super Stock models, the Black Ghost features 807 horsepower rather than 797. This package also comes standard with a 3.09 gear rather than the normal 2.62, leading to stronger low end acceleration.

The unique features of the 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost begin on the outside with a black “gator skin” vinyl roof treatment, vintage styled Challenger script badges on the fenders, grille and rear spoiler, Dodge letting across the top of the front fascia (like the original Challenger), a white tail stripe, a bright fuel filler door, 20-by-11-inch Satin Carbon Warp Speed wheels, black Brembo brake calipers and Mopar hood pins.

On the inside, the Black Ghost comes with a package specific badge on the passenger’s side of the dashboard, Laguna leather and Alcantara seats and door panels, an Alcantara steering wheel with a red illuminated SRT logo, a suede headliner and real carbon fiber trim bezels.

As is the case for all of the 2023 Last Call models, the pricing for the Black Ghost special edition will be announced closer to the on-sale date, which could come as soon as next month. Also like the other Last Call models, the Black Ghost package cannot be ordered by a customer or dealership. Instead, the company will built these models at random and send them to pre-selected dealerships. Prospective buyers will be able to track the location of these cars – and all 2023 Challenger and Charger allocation figures by dealership – on the Dodge Garage Horsepower Locator when it goes live next month.

The final Last Call vehicle will be introduced at the 2022 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, and we expect that it will be far more exciting than an appearance package.

  1. Great choice and a a great homage to a time honored vehicle. Dodge today is doing the Dodge of yesterday proud. Going in style for sure. I can’t wait to see the 7th and final incarnation Dodgechas in store!

  2. only 300 come on guys, you can crank out a few more.

    Bad enough these things are already prices way off the charts, then you limit production which gives dealers the green light to mark up 100%

  3. I worked with the Man – His 70 Challenger was legendary but he never spoke of it until just before he retired years ago – His car had the Tortoise Shell Grain roof, very rare next to gator grain and then the common boars grain – He was originally going for a convertible, but liked the overhead console in the hard top so he chose the hard top – his inspiration was his Brothers 68 440 Charger, black with white stripe – He also ordered it with a shaker hood, but Dodge ran out said they would get him one and didnt – he sued and lost – His Son drives that car everywhere these day, if there’s a car even, he’s there – Wish GQ was still alive today to see this – A really super individual everyone liked – He could also ride a full dressed Police Harley like no other I’ve seen –

  4. Street racers do not impress me. I’m sorry, have we all forgotten that this is illegal for a damn good reason, that being that innocent bystanders can and do get killed at these events?

    There is nothing to pay homage to, in my opinion. If you want to race, go to a track and endanger only yourself and your fellow racing participants.

    • They, we DONT WANNA IMPRESS A CLOWN LIKE U. But the babes sure were impressed. That’s why U never got as much as a look. Hahaha

  5. Thank you for sharing this information about my class mate, 71-K. We were riding buddies from the EASTSIDE to the academy daily. Commissioner Willie Bell

  6. I would love to be able to park this and the King edition Charger in my garage. While I love nearly any variation of a Mopar muscle car. These two really hit home.
