Meet The Challenger Black Ghost One Of The Final Hurrah For The Dodge V8 Muscle Car

Few names command as much respect and evoke as much nostalgia as the Dodge Challenger. Born in 2008 amidst a landscape of shifting trends and evolving tastes, the Challenger emerged as a beacon of unapologetic power and timeless style.

From its inception, the Challenger captivated enthusiasts with its bold aesthetics and thunderous roar. With each passing year, Dodge unleashed new iterations, each more outrageous than the last. From the 425-horsepower SRT8 to the awe-inspiring Hellcat and Demon variants, the Challenger cemented its status as a legend in the automotive world.

As Dodge recently announced the end of production for this iconic muscle car, we now get to see what the company calls as the Last Call models one of which is the Challenger Black Ghost, a special-edition model that pays homage to the 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T SE owned by a Detroit police officer in the ’70s that became infamous for its street racing prowess.

The modern Black Ghost gets a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 with 807 horsepower and 707 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission sends the power to the rear wheels, propelling the Challenger to 60 miles per hour in 4.6 seconds while covering a quarter-mile in 12.4 seconds at 121.2 mph.

Ollie Kew from Top Gear got the privilege to drive the Black Ghost and reflect on the remarkable journey and enduring legacy of the Dodge Challenger as it fades into the sunset.
