Back in the 1970s, there was a black 1970 Dodge Challenger with a 426 Hemi V8 speeding down Detroit’s Woodward Avenue. It would appear randomly and then disappear for months on end, allegedly to the detriment of competitors in the traffic light battle on the infamous stretch of road. It was called the Black Ghost, and rose once again as the sixth Last call special edition model from Dodge.
This is the Dodge Challenger Black Ghost 2023, and like the Dodge Charger King Daytona that debuted on September 14, this isn’t a Scat Pack with an appearance pack. The Challenger Hellcat Redeye Widebody is the foundation, but Dodge bangs a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 into 807 horsepower. In the current Challenger hierarchy, it’s the same as the SRT Super Stock that debuted in 2020, and it will be almost as rare. 300 Black Ghosts is slated for production, and as the name suggests, it’s only available in black.
This is a devastating story. More information will be added as it becomes available.
