Last November, Dodge unveiled a 50th Anniversary Edition of its highly-celebrated Challenger, offering seven color options with 70 units made for each, creating a limited run of just 1960 examples. Fortunately for those who missed it, the American automaker is now doubling down on the semicentennial celebrations with yet another special version, this time dubbed the Commemorative Edition, with three trims available: R/T, R/T Scat Pack, and the R/T Scat Pack Widebody.
Unlike its predecessor from November, the current run has no cap, and so will be available to many more enthusiasts of the muscle car. The design itself is almost identical to the Anniversary Edition, with a Satin Black exterior where the hood is hand-painted and the roof and decklid are both black-wrapped. It also carries the Hellcat’s air intake headlights, a fuel filler cap in a matching Satin Black, wheels pained in Gold School, red Brembo brakes with Gunmetal brake calipers, and a whole range of badging across the body. As for its interior, stitching comes in a sepia tone, with heated and cooled performance seats, Alcantara door bolsters, berber floor mats, and a variety of carbon fiber trim components.
Dealers will begin taking orders for the 2020 Dodge Challenger Commemorative Edition this month, with deliveries expected by fall. The package will add $4,995 to the R/T trim, $5,495 to the R/T Scat Pack, and $5,495 USD for the R/T Scat Pack Widebody (on top of the $6,000 USD for the widebody itself).
Elsewhere in the automotive world, Toyota has unveiled a Japan-only GR Yaris RS with 118 horsepower.
