2013 Dodge Challenger R/T Redline wheel

Appealingly, the R/T Redline is available with either a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission—the V-6 car is automatic-only. Cars equipped with the slushbox also get bright pedals, a Mopar T-handle shift lever, and remote start. Four exterior colors are available: Billet Silver, Granite Crystal, Bright White, and Pitch Black. We say skip the first three paint options and go straight for Black; the color combo brings new meaning to the term “murdered-out” in that it gives the Redline a sort of Batmobile-driving-through-blood-puddles sort of look.

The Redline package will be available this spring and buyers can begin placing orders now; the kit adds $1995 to the base price of the Challenger R/T or R/T Plus, for out-the-door prices of $32,985 and $34,985, respectively.
