Chrysler just unwrapped the Rallye Redline edition of their 2012 Dodge Challenger as a tribute to the Festival of LX, the biggest gathering of owners of Dodge Magnum, Chrysler 300, Dodge Challenger, and Dodge Charger in North America. The car looks amazing but it only has a V6 under its hood.
The V6 though is a great performer. It is a 3.6L Pentastar V6 powerplant which gives out 305 horsepower and a torque of 268 pound feet. So clearly it is built to provide the muscle car fun following the brand’s tradition.
The performance upgrades include the improved rear axle, performance suspension, performance disc brakes, steering system, and 20 inch rims with wider performance tires. So the Challenger Rallye Redline is sure a better drive.
You do not buy the Challenger RR though for its handling but you buy it for the looks and its feel. Undoubtedly, the Rallye Redline excels in both departments. A redline strip goes over its hood scoops, deck, and roof with thinner side stripes on the side to add some detail. The deck-lid spoiler follows the color of the body which adds to its performance look while continuing the red stripe on its center. The rims are also finished in black to give it a very bad boy getup.
The Challenger RR comes in four colors: Pitch Black, Bright White, Tungsten Metallic, and Bright Silver Metallic. The interior can be set up with performance seats in leather finished in Dark Slate Gray or Radar Red.
The RR also comes with a host of features and equipment borrowed from the SXT Plus. From the hands free phone technology, speakers, 276-watt amplifier, Nappa leather seats, satellite radio, fog lamps, auto temperature control, power seat, stability control, six airbags, dual exhaust, and keyless entry.
The price is the best feature of the Challenger RR. The tag starts at just $28,745 plus some for destination cost. It will be a great toy car for anyone who can afford it.
