dodge offered an even more final round of special challenger models to celebrities

Dodge has been quite loud with its proclamations that this year’s “Last Call” Challenger and Charger models would really be the final round, but it appears that’s not entirely the case. Users on the Hellcat owner’s forum discovered that Dodge handed out as many as 25 ultra-exclusive Demon 170 Jailbreak models with exclusive colors to celebrities and select customers.

The Drive came across the discovery, which claims that Dodge released 40 exclusive colors for the cars, including 20 heritage colors and 20 new hues picked by the SRT team. Among the list of alleged recipients are Jay Leno, Goldberg, Tim Kuniskis, and Michael Strahan. 

The colors will all be one-of-one selections for the cars, and the forum post states that two of its members have reserved two of them already, so it appears Jay Leno will have to duke it out for a color with the rest of the famous recipients. 

We don’t know how much of a premium Dodge will place on the cars or if it will charge for them at all. Automakers sometimes hand out freebies to famous people in exchange for the massive exposure that comes from them being seen driving around, so the last handful of these cars may land in their new owners’ driveways for free.

    Why would Jay Leno want a Challenger? That's weird to me. Like it's not a car you buy if you really have money.

      Leno's got some Dodge and Chrysler stuff in his collection. He likes rare, odd, and unique stuff. I'm not sure if he'd care about an "end run" car.

    Still disappointed there's no "Kowalski" edition white Challenger available! Vanishing Point put this car on the map, certainly more so than Bob Goldberg or Jay Leno.

    Stellantis exists to make money. People like V-8 Challengers. So what if Stellantis is pulling all four teats of their cash cow?

    I just don't get it, and never will. This is the ugliest, clunkiest pony car ever built (with the '71-'73 Mustang in a distant second place). And yet people are shelling out 8-Series money to have one.

      I don't get calling the Challenger ugly. It's a matter of what you like. I like it, a lot. I'm on my second one in 13 years. Most cars I can afford are pretty ugly today. A lot of other people must like the Challenger too, I get "I love your car!" comments almost daily. I got one in the Culver's drive through line about 8pm tonight.
