Oh, and I'm not wetting my pants to rush out and loose money on my trade in for the next new thing FCA throws out there either.
My white Shaker Plus A8 is already 1 of 228. Rare enough for me
And why did they put the 5.7 Shaker badge on the MOPAR 17 Shaker. Duh, the MOPAR design badge like the rear spoiler on the Shaker would have made it more cool
Do you have the PN# for the dual strut bars? Will they fit non-shaker SP models?

I quite like the gloss two tone. Matte can look good, but for some reason shiny black speaks to me

I agree. Dodge, as a marketing ploy, has created way too many "limited edition" Challengers. Most will never be collectible. Just consider these:

2008 SRT (numbered)
2009 R/T Classic
2010 Furious Fuchsia
2010 MOPAR 10
2012 SRT Yellowjacket
2013 R/T Blacktop
2014 MOPAR 14
2014 100th Anniversary Edition
2015 Hellcat
2017 80th Anniversary
2017 T/A
2017 GT (AWD)
2017 Demon

of the above, the numbered editions:
>2008 SRT
>Mopar '10
>Furious Fuchsia SRT8
>Mopar '14
>Mopar '17

the Demon is marketed as being limited production - probably from the perspective of
>price
>features than may not appeal to mass market buyers (less sound insulation, drag radials (for year round use), extra cost to have passenger seat, rear seat delete

with the '08s - they were far too many to be 'instant collectible' and the following model year more features options were added over the '08 that improved over the initial.

Great variety of Challengers for '17. Best Challenger line up, and options, that has every been offered.


No need to "hate", just buy the one that turns your crank, or keep the one that you have and enjoy it! lol

The 2014 Challenger Shaker was numbered.

The Demon will be numbered too.

The gloss black looks way better than the matte black hoods. With all the models/editions, there's something for everyone's personal taste.

2010 FURIOUS FUCHSIA R/T Classic 6 speed
Mopar hood struts
Billet Technology HEMI nose badge
White Leather Interior
DRL's enabled
Blastin Bob's Resonator Eliminators
K & N drop in air filter

2014 Ram 1500 Express 4 x 4 Flame Red hEMI 5.7
2016 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 4 x 4 Firecracker Red
2017 Z51 Corvette Stingray
