Over the weekend Leftlane happened across a new package for the Dodge Challenger thanks to a friend and reader who spotted the first publicly shown Dodge Challenger Rallye Redline edition while attending the seventh annual Spring Festival of LXs in Irvine, California.

Now, Chrysler has officially revealed all the details on this special edition Challenger. This all-new model is based on the Challenger SXT Plus with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, but adds a handful of unique changes to give the Rallye Redline an eye-grabbing visual appeal. The car can be had in Bright, White, Tungsten, Pitch Black or Bright Silver, but regardless of base color all models will come with a "Redline Red" triple stripe pattern, new 20-inch black chrome wheels with a red accent trim ring, a body-colored rear spoiler and steering wheel mounted paddle shifters.

Inside, the Rallye Redline will feature heated leather front seats available in Radar Red, a 276-watt amplified Boston Acoustic stereo with six speakers and Sirius satellite radio, Uconnect infotainment and automatic headlamps as standard.

While the engine doesn't benefit from any extra ponies, Dodge did see fit to include the Super Sport Package that is optional on other V6-equipped Challengers as standard equipment. This handling-focused package includes a performance-tuned suspension with 42 percent firmer front and 22 percent firmer rear monotube shocks, larger sway bars front and rear and 25-percent quicker steering. Hiding behind special 20-inch wheels (which feature a unique red trim behind the spokes) are upsized brakes that round out the changes.

Interested? Pricing starts from $28,745 MSRP.
