In addition to adding optional full-length racing stripes to the 2016 Challenger and Charger Hellcat models, Dodge also announced today that it is extending the availability of Plum Crazy purple on the Challenger and Charger following strong demand for the color.
The Plum Crazy hue was initially going to be available only until the end of December 2015, however Dodge has now decided to make it available through to the end of January. Plum Crazy is a heritage hue from Chrysler’s archives and has gained enthusiast attention over the years after being introduced on the 1970 Dodge Challenger.
For added collectability, the Plum Crazy hue will be available in conjunction with the carbon-fiber finish racing stripes on the Challenger and Charger Hellcats for 2016. Seeing as the stripes were just added for 2016 and Plum Crazy will only be around for another month, this livery combo should prove to be extremely rare in years to come.
Plum Crazy will also be available on 2016 Challenger SXT Plus, R/T, R/T Plus, R/T Shaker, R/T Plus Shaker, R/T Scat Pack, 392 HEMI Scat Pack Shaker and SRT 392 models. 2016 Chargers available with the color include SXT models with 20-inch wheels and the R/T, R/T Road & Track, R/T Scat Pack and SRT 392 models.
