To mark the special editions, the two variants will have a new “High Octane” red pearl coat paint, all-new 20-inch aluminium wheels, commemorative badging, unique key fob and a special limited-edition owners’ kit and a book that celebrates 100 years of Dodge history.
The cabin boasts Molten Red or Foundry Black Nappa leather sport seats, Liquid Graphite accents and embroidered floor mats. While the Charger gets a Beats by Dr. Dre audio system, the Challenger receives a Boston Acoustics stereo system.
