Back in the 1970s, there was a black 1970 Dodge Challenger with a 426 Hemi V8 that cruised Detroit’s Woodward Avenue. It would show up at random and then disappear for months, allegedly putting the hurt to competitors in stoplight battles on the infamous stretch of road. It was called the Black Ghost, and it rides one more time as the sixth Last Call special edition model from Dodge.
This is the 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost, and as with the Dodge Charger King Daytona that debuted on September 14, this isn’t a Scat Pack with an appearance package. The Challenger Hellcat Redeye Widebody is the foundation, but Dodge bumps the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 to 807 horsepower. In the current Challenger hierarchy, it’s equal to the SRT Super Stock that debuted in 2020, and it will be nearly as rare. 300 Black Ghosts are slated for production, and as the name suggests, it’s only available in black.
This is a breaking story. More information will be added as it becomes available.
