New Britain: Dodge only made 500 of the Dodge Challenger R/T Mopar 10 models. With thousands of dealers across the country getting one of these for stock was quite the battle for dealers. Papa's Dodge Chrysler Jeep, in New Britain, just south of Hartford, CT and just north of New Haven, Connecticut has actually received 2 and will be getting a third.
Dodge and Mopar collaborated to create Mopar ’10, a “Mopar modified” 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T. Under-the-hood features include the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 engine, a hood-venting system, a cold-air intake, a front strut-tower brace with shock caps, and a unique engine cover. Under the decklid is a rear strut-tower brace that stiffens the chassis and improves handling characteristics of the car.
Mopar ’10 will be available in Brilliant Black with a choice of three accent colors: Mopar Blue, Red or Silver. Accent colors will appear on side stripes as well as in the stitching on the steering wheel and seats. The first one that Papa's had with a Blue stripe was sold to Stacy Rosen. They currently have a one with the Red stripe and an Automatic Transmission. They have another one incoming with the Blue accents and the six speed manual transmission expected to be on their lot any day now. Exterior features include 20-inch forged heritage gloss-black wheels, black-chromed grille surround, and a functional, vented T/A-style hood with vintage hood pins. Mopar logos and graphics are prominent on the front fascia, hood, hood-pin caps, body-side stripes, windows and on the chromed fuel door. A special Mopar ’10 car cover also comes with the vehicle.
Interior features in the Dodge Challenger Mopar 10 include Katzkin leather seating, custom leather-wrapped steering wheel with baseball-style stitching, Mopar shift handles (T-handle for automatics, Pistol Grip for manuals), a serialized dash plaque with Mopar ’10 logo and Mopar branding throughout.
Every customer who purchases a Mopar ’10 will receive a special owner kit that includes a certificate with the vehicle identification number (VIN), date of build completion, and build number. The kit also includes a limited-edition sketch of the vehicle signed by Chrysler Group design chief Mark Trostle, a book that highlights the special vehicle build, and Mopar ’10 merchandise.
To see this unique vehicle that "has a wicked, sinister appearance that will turn heads.” said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO of Dodge, Chrysler Group LLC. “The Mopar brand resonates with hard-core enthusiasts, and this car will too.” And about which Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC. says, “Dodge put the heart into this Challenger and Mopar added the soul. The result is a unique, special-edition car that only we can offer.” Come go to Papa's Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram located at 585 E. Main Street, New Britain, CT or call them at (888) 608-9955.
