How many other low number R/T's are out there? It took me 5-6 years to finally pull the trigger, when I purchased my Challenger. During 2012 they didn't have the Scat Pack options available through the dealerships, so I order one with my specs. I wanted to order a "throw back" to the old days when you could walk into a Dodge / Plymouth dealership and order any combinations, regardless of colors and engine choices. Now that I'm slightly older and could afford to purchase a new vehicle, it was my turn to build it my way. Now please remember, if it wasn't for kids in college, grandchildren and retirement around the corner, I'd spend the "extra" money and find a Hellcat or slightly used Demon, but that's a story for another day. Back to my car, it's a 2012 R/T Classic Pitch Black w/Red Classic R/T stripes and of course I've added a few "classic" touches that Dodge should make standard, like 345 Hemi hood emblems & engine half covers, R/T & Hurst emblems on the rear spoiler and of course the original Scat Pack decal on rear side windows. Let's not forget the Hurst short throw shifter, w/pistol grip handle, skip shift eliminator and rear lights sequential turn signal kit. The best part is when Dodge sent me this verification letter (see below) to validate what I stated, is in fact true. Growing up in the 70's and seeing all the true muscle cars of that era was awesome...I can't tell you how many times I'd be waiting at the bus stop and see these high impact color cars cruise by, wishing for the day I could have one...well I did and it's what I could afford and built just for me.

Color, model/trim package, tranny, and the other options, make up the "×" of "×××" number.

It's cool to know, but meaningless when it comes to value, or really being consideted rare.

Just a fun thing to know.

I contacted FCA just to get all the info on my 2012 R/T classic, they stated in the e-mail it was 1 of 3.
As stated it's cool but that's about it.
Although I don't see any other Blackberry pearl challenger's it's rare to me. :p

My 2018 F8 Green R/T Scat Pack is one of twelve. I wish I could track where the other 11 went & I am sure Dodge could find out, but they wouldn't share that information.

FCA definitely does do this and you really have to take their 1 of whatever numbers with a grain of salt.

If you really want the true number the only way you will get it is from PLMCRZY.
