    It’ll be interesting to see if Renault’s influence puts a stop to these never-ending, inane, special editions of the Charger and Challenger.

      Why? 8-year old, profitable vehicle that sells in many cases because of these special editions. FCA needs to milk these cash cows for as long as possible.

    Wow

    A great deal, especially since this comes from the factory with 9.5×20-inch aluminum-forged Cross Brace wheels and the Brembo brake package with six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers. A very nice package for the price.
