The 2017 Dodge Challenger Mopar debuted at the Chicago Auto Show. The muscle car was a standout and helped celebrate Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' 80th anniversary.

The Mopar brand started in 1937. The term usually means as an all-encompassing word for any and all Chrysler-built vehicles. This includes Dodge, Chrysler, Imperial, Plymouth, DeSoto, and Jeep vehicles after 1987. Officially, there has only been eight limited edition vehicles with the "Mopar" name and under 4,000 units produced altogether. It is a very exclusive car.

Fiat Chrysler Authority reported that the Challenger Mopar sets itself apart by its unique paint job. The limited edition muscle car has two different two-tone color schemes, a black on black Mopar rear spoiler badge, and a hand-painted "392" fender badge. It also has a Shaker hood scoop and Hellcat exhaust tips.

Inside, the 2017 Dodge Challenger Mopar offers several exclusive interior styling details. It has black seats with blue contrast stitching, as well as Mopar performance upgrades like Air Catcher headlamps, Mopar cold-air intake, and front upper strut tower brace.

Kelley Blue Book reported that the motivation for the 2017 Challenger Mopar comes from the 392 cubic inch, 6.4-liter Hemi V8 with a Mopar cold-air intake with an air-catcher duct in the headlamp area. The muscle car can produce 485 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. It is real-wheel drive and has a 6-speed manual transmission.

Similar to the older Mopar's, the limited-edition will also come with an exclusive selection of related swag. The Mopar kit will include a "birth certificate" with the vehicle's vital statistics, a booklet, and a hand-signed rendering created by the Product Design Office. It will also have an acrylic memorabilia showcase, a keychain, and 80th Anniversary badge, and Mopar valve-stem caps.

The 2017 Dodge Challenger Mopar is a limited edition and is available starting at $56,885 including the $1,095 destination fee. Only 160 of them were made and are set to be delivered by the end of summer. What do you think about the Mopar? Share your thoughts and comments below.
