Dodge is taking a page out of their Mopar muscle car paint book by bringin back one of Chrysler’s most memorable shades of purple from the 1960s for the 2010 Challenger SRT-8 and R/T models, Plum Crazy. So if you are a sucker for for a bygone era, or just want to feel like you were there, your brand new modern day Mopar muscle car can come straight from the factory with a bit more of a nostalgic feel, not to mention make everyone turn their heads and drop their jaws to the sidewalk when rumble passed them in your Hemi powered Dodge Challenger.

Complimenting the Plum Crazy exterior of the special option Challenger are an optional pair of dual side stripes just like to old car available in either white or black to help that purple paint pop. Mopar has also upgraded the Plum Crazy Challenger’s interior with a full Katzkin leather upholstery that is available in quite a few different colors. Differentiating the men from the boys, the Plum Crazy R/T model will feature color matching Plum stitching on the seats while the 425 HP SRT-8 ground pounders will have a Plum stripe running up the length of the seat back. You would think that this kind of a retro treatment would be a bit hard on your wallet, however the Plum Crazy package adds an additional $225 to the sticker price of an R/T Challenger while the more extensive SRT-8 package is only $500 more than the standard vehicle.

The red Challenger in the 2009 New York Auto Show is a really nice car. Please don’t mass produce this car. It’s ugly. Just so you know, the color matching Plum stitching on the seats is not cool, so let’s not brag about it, okay?

The Challenger is a promising car. It’s high end versions have 425 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque. Who wouldn’t want such? But with Plum Crazy, there’s no way I’m buying one of these. Well, it’s a good thing its available in other colors.

Just when I thought the car industry is suffering from the global financial crisis, here comes the Dodge investing on cars that looks ridiculous.

I just thought its kind of cute. It’s nice to look at, especially if there are others who would be willing to spend a big chunk of money on this. Yes, it’s cute. But there’s no way I’m buying one of these.

I’m sorry but they came too strong with the plum color for their retro-looking car. They could have started with a safer retro shades of colors. And there is a lot to choose from.
