The 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost is the Latest “Last Call” Model Unveiled by Dodge
Dodge announced its second-to-last offering of its “Last Call” special-edition models, the 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost. The Black Ghost special edition is inspired by the HEMI-powered muscle car that traversed Detroit’s iconic Woodward Avenue in the 1970s. The first Black Ghost, a black 1970 Dodge Challenger RT SE, belonged to Godfrey Qualls as he ruled Woodward Avenue in the 70s. Godfrey quickly developed a reputation as a daredevil for flexing his HEMI-powered performance muscle on Woodward and then mysteriously driving off into the night. Months-long absences and lack of sightings added a mysterious allure to Godfrey’s Challenger, earning him the nickname “Black Ghost.”
The 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost special edition offers buyers a lack-and-chrome appearance that’s a modern manifestation of the iconic vehicle. Featuring some unusual accents, such as a black “gator skin” roof vinyl graphics, the Challenger Black Ghost will be a “Last Call” model enthusiasts won’t want to wait to get their hands on. Other Last Call models include the Challenger Shakedown, the Dodge Charger Super Bee, Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Swinger and Dodge Charger R/T Scat Pack Swinger, and the Dodge Charger King Daytona. Dodge’s “Last Call” models celebrate the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger, which are coming to an end in their current forms and eventually transitioning onto electric platforms and powertrains.
“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. The 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost is the prelude to what we’re going to unveil with our seventh and final special-edition model,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand chief executive officer – Stellantis.
