The 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost is the latest "Last Call" special edition based on the widebody Hellcat Redeye.
The Black Ghost gains 10 additional horsepower for a total of 807 horsepower and is painted jet black with an alligator vinyl roof pattern.
This look echoes that of the original Black Ghost, a 1970 Challenger R/T that acquired a mythical aura on the Detroit street racing scene. Only 300 2023 models will be built.
Dodge is almost done unveiling its Last Call special edition Challengers and Chargers, with the latest, the 2023 Challenger Black Ghost, marking the sixth of seven farewell variants for the V-8-powered muscle cars. The Black Ghost is based on the SRT Hellcat Redeye widebody model, but boosts the output of the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 by 10 ponies for a total of 807 hp.

The Black Ghost name comes from a 1970 Challenger R/T SE that roamed the streets of Detroit five decades ago. Owned by a man named Godfrey Qualls, who was a Detroit motorcycle cop at the time, the black '70s Challenger achieved legendary status for showing up, winning, and then in traffic light drag races on Woodward Avenue and other local strips the night vanished like a 426 Hemi-powered apparition. The original Black Ghost was added to the National Historic Vehicle Register in 2020 after Quall's son Gregory helped restore it to roadworthy condition when his father gave him the car before his death in 2015. The car is still owned by the Qualls family.

For the 2023 Homage, Dodge 300 Challenger Hellcat Redeyes will be painted Pitch Black with a black leatherette roof sheet that mimics the look of the real thing. The Black Ghost Edition also features a chrome 'Dodge' front badge, a white stripe on the rear fender and chrome 'Challenger' badges on the grille, front fender and rear spoiler. The Black Ghost rolls on 20-inch satin carbon wheels, and stopping power comes via black six-piston Brembo brakes.

The interior is also black, with seats and doors trimmed in Alcantara and Laguna leather, and a red SRT logo adorning the Alcantara steering wheel. The instrument panel features a custom Black Ghost badging with the iconic Dodge Fratzog logo and Gator Scale pattern and carbon fiber surrounds. Orders open this fall, and you can expect the Black Ghost to cost significantly more than the standard $87,340 Challenger Hellcat Redeye.
