The Dodge Challenger is every bit as beloved and relevant to today’s muscle car enthusiasts as it was 50-plus years ago, and the Dodge Challenger Holy Guacamole concept combines the best of both worlds.
Taking the 2020 limited-production Challenger R/T Scat Pack Widebody 50th Anniversary edition and giving it a throwback treatment from the 1970s showcases the ultimate in heritage design and modern Dodge attitude.
The Challenger Holy Guacamole concept’s exterior is awash in a custom green paint color, affectionately named Rotten Avocado by Dodge designers and features a custom-painted “Gold School” Shaker hood scoop, unique tone-on-tone side striping, staggered 20-inch Forgeline wheels and Mopar coil-over suspension lowering kit.
Under the functional Shaker hood is a Mopar cold-air intake, conical air filter and optimized air box for improved airflow and performance from the 392 (cubic inch) HEMI V-8 engine.
The interior is decked out with wood panel trim and seats and door panels that sport green and yellow plaid inserts as a tribute to some of the colors and materials found in the iconic original 1970 Challenger.
