The 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost Comes In As The Sixth Of Seven ‘Last Call’ Special-Edition Models

Dustin Hawley | Sep 30, 2022

Dodge has announced the sixth of its seven “Last Call” special-edition models with the unveiling of the 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost. Dodge’s newest “Last Call” model is a modern take on a classic, channeling the HEMI®-powered spirit of a 70’s muscle car.

Owned by Godfrey Qualls, the original “Black Ghost” - a black special-edition 1970 Dodge Challenger RT SE - made a name for itself on Detroit’s famed Woodward Avenue in the 1970s. Qualls’ 1970 Challenger, with its renowned 426 HEMI-powered engine, rapidly gained prominence by flexing its muscle on Woodward before driving off mysteriously into the night - hence the title “Black Ghost” not to be seen again for months, leading to the “Black Ghost” nickname.

Paying homage to its predecessor, the 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost special edition offers a modern take on this classic vehicle. Taking inspiration from the original esthetic, the Black Ghost features a black-and-chrome appearance, including unique black “gator skin” roof vinyl graphics similar to the original, then essentially wraps it around a Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody cranked up to 807 horsepower.

The 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost is the sixth of seven special-edition Dodge “Last Call” models, a celebration of the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger, which are both ceasing production at the conclusion of this model year.

“There are so many legendary muscle cars in Dodge brand history, it was hard to choose the seven vehicles we wanted to pay homage to with our Last Call lineup, but the Black Ghost was an easy pick,” said Tim Kuniskis, CEO of Dodge brand – Stellantis. “The 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost is the prelude to what we’re going to unveil with our seventh and final special-edition model.”

The 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost “Last Call” models will be a limited production of only 300 units. Every unit will be a Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody with a Pitch Black exterior color.

Features of the 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost include:

  • Black “gator skin” roof vinyl
  • Bright Dodge fascia badge
  • White rear fender graphics
  • Challenger script grille, fender, and spoiler badges
  • Midnight Metallic SRT grille badge
