Dodge will show off the 2013 Challenger R/T Redline and R/T Plus Redline at the upcoming Chicago Motor Show. The Redline’s exterior is inspired by the Rallye Redline model that made its debut in 2012. The package is only available on cars that were finished in Billet Silver, Bright White, Granite Crystal and Pitch Black.
These cars get a two-tone stripe to its two sides. They also get black chrome bespoke 20-inch alloy wheels as well as a lowered suspension. R/T Redline models are exclusively available with performance seats with Dark Slate Gray upholstery. Buyers can get R/T Plus models with either these performance seats or with premium Nappa leather units that can come with Radar Red or Dark Slate Gray covering.
R/T Plus models are offered with a broad selection of standard features such as heated front seats, a set of six Boston Acoustics speakers with a 276-watt amplifier, power heated mirrors and Chrysler's ParkSense rear park assist system. Powering the Rallye Redline is a 305-horsepower V6. The Redline makes use of a powerful 5.7-liter Hemi V8 that delivers 375hp and 410 lb-ft. of torque when mated with a six-speed manual transmission.
Due partly to a free-flowing performance exhaust system, the engine enables the Challenger to go from a standstill to 60 mph in less than 5.5 seconds. As an alternative, buyers can get the coupe with a five-speed automatic transmission that decreases the engine's power output to 372hp and 400 lb-ft. of torque. The Redline package can be ordered this spring with a base price of $1,995.
