The original Black Ghost, a black 1970 Dodge Challenger RT SE 426 Hemi, ruled over Woodward Avenue in the 1970s. The Black Ghost, owned by Godfrey Qualls, was known to intimidate the locals on Woodward and then vanish into the dark, not to appear again for months.
The 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost is a modern-day interpretation of the original. This special edition features black “gator skin” roof vinyl graphics, Challenger script badging, and white tail graphics. The Black Ghost also features white rear fender graphics and a “Last Call” underhood plaque.
Only 300 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost “Last Call” models will be created. The 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost boosts Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody to 807 horsepower.
“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, Dodge brand chief executive officer – 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.”
