So lime green is official now for 2011!

Here's the link on the new 2011 changes, wheels and colours:

2011 Challenger information thread

Was looking at the 'clearout' 2010's, but might wait till next year now. Except for the new 'Kirby vacuum' spoiler on the SRT, all is looking pretty good! Nice changes to the V6 cars also.

Why do you think lime green is official? The name is green with envy. Everyone was saying furious fuchia was panther pink.Until someone has a picture of it, it is not official.

The link shows some colours. May not be the 'actual' colours, but the 'chip' shows a lime green to me.

The chip does not look lime to me?

It is too dark for lime it looks like the color in this video, which some are reporting to be the new green with envy? But who knows dodge is terrible about info.

What's interesting to me is that Mango Tango is being referred to as "Toxic Orange" which is actually a Viper color. So either the Challenger will not have Mango Tango paint, or they're using the same name for two different colors.

Then again, this pic is pretty similar to Mango Tango. Just doesn't seem likely to me that a $90,000 car would share the same quality paint with a $25,000 one.



If they are using Viper colors for the Challenger or at least the Snakeskin green from that video, I would expect an upcharge for it like Redline 3 pearl.

I'll wait for Sublime Green thank you very much. Whatever you want to call that green doesn't matter because I'm not exactly drueling over it. If the Sublime isn't coming, I just may end up in a Boss 302 so shoot me now lol!

That doesn't look like lime to you? It's not Avacado (J6), it's not jade, emerald or forest green. It's not Camaro Synergy green. It's not mint, or turquoise green. Lime green is my favourite colour, has been all my life. I've had 5 lime Mopars (3 in J5, 2 in J6). Sorry man, looks like lime to me...

Can someone post a pic of this Viper green? Never seen a Viper in green.

That viper color looks just like the mango tango color currently offered on the jeep wrangler.
