Anybody know how the title of this thread changed? It was originally titled Mopar 17 Challenger. I'm the OP but I didn't change it.

Anyways it's strange how a camera changes the colour, in some articles the Billet Silver looks darker grey but in others it's clearly silver. As it is Billet Silver, I think the silver look is correct. Nice car either way but I'm starting to agree a T/A is the way to go for the price.... and that these will basically be unobtainium.

Never know. I had a buddy who bought a Mopar '10. He just wanted a challenger and it was just sitting in the lot. They even gave him a deal.

I agree with you though, I think the Mopar '17 is cool...but I am not kicking myself for my T/A order. I prefer the looks of that model a little more.

So we now have another Special Edition Challenger....
I agree with an earlier post, it starts diminishing the "special" denotation.
I think it also kinda kicks the buyer in the teeth - So ya wanted the top Challenger and you ordered - and paid or financed - a new 2016 Hellcat? Well, now we are rolling out the Demon model. I am so happy with my SXT.

This isn't new, and clearly not appealing to someone who is happy with an SXT.

So, when do orders open?

And what dealers are privileged enough to get an allocation? Barely one per state per color.

I anticipate much gouging . . .

EDIT: I'm not complaining, I like the two-tone.

Is that supposed to be a snarky left coast remark? LOL

FYI, I've owned my share of 60's and 70's Mopar muscle cars, have you?

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

10 Special Edition Dodge Challengers | Autobytel.com

I am happy to be corrected if I am wrong but wasn't there a limited edition 392 offered in 2011 in White with Blue stripes or Blue with White stripes?

Are you referring to the Drag Pack? I don't believe that it belongs on the list because it was not a street car. It was a supercharged race car made to run 8 second quarters on the track.

You wonder how the race version of the Demon will compare to this car?

No need to get defensive.

If you're happy with the lowest trim then clearly collector's editions aren't something that will appeal to you.

Another way of putting it is, you're not the target demographic.

And don't fling your age in my face like it matters, lol.
