2015 Dodge Charger R/T Mopar ’15
Mopar is great about making performance and appearance accessories to personalize your FCA vehicle. The Mopar ’15 kit for the Dodge Charger R/T is one great example: a $3550 crate holding a “Scat Pack Performance Stage 1 Kit,” including cat-back exhaust, cold-air intake, performance ECM, a front strut-tower brace, and custom badges and appearance add-ons. The only problem is, you almost definitely won’t be able to get your hands on it: Mopar is making only 50 of them.
Yes, just like Mopar ’10, Mopar ’11, Mopar ’12, Mopar ’13, and Mopar ’14, this year’s Mopar kit is a collection of items you can order individually from the Mopar catalog, bundled together in one special-edition package. And as far as special editions go, this one really highlights the “special”: In addition to the performance-enhancing parts (which Mopar says will boost the 5.7-liter Hemi’s output by 18 horsepower and 18 lb-ft), the Mopar ’15 kit comes with special Scat Pack 1 badges, Mopar-branded doorsill guards, matte-black Mopar ’15 body stripes, and a Mopar ’15 serial-number dash badge. Oh, and a certificate of authenticity, a reproduction vintage Scat Pack poster, a magnetic mechanic’s tray, and a Mopar ’15 Performance Package brochure—in case you want to buy even more Mopar stuff.
If that’s the kind of high-performance exclusivity that revs your engine, you better hurry: With only 50 kits being built, this is a very limited club. Then again, you could always get the essential parts of the kit separately. We can’t help but think most of these kits will be ferreted away by collectors, hoping to cash in 40 years from now when some reality-TV crew is beaming bolt-perfect restorations of 2015 Dodges directly into your brainpan. If that’s your plan, just make sure the all-important serial-number badge stays in pristine condition.
