Pricing for the new package starts at $18,495 on top of the price of a Dodge Challenger

The Dodge Challenger has been a welcome arrival for many muscle-car fans. Willing to overlook its hefty weight for the old-school looks and meaty Hemi power, they've already purchased just about every car scheduled to be made for the next year. But Hurst wasn't content to leave the Challenger alone, and has decided to prep a high-powered version complete with a collection of Hurst accessories available soon through Dodge dealers.

Joining the tuning firm’s previous Challenger Series 2 R/T and Dodge Challenger SRT8 packages, comes a new Competition/Plus Challenger that gives a nod to the company's most popular shifter of the same name – one million of which have been sold to date.

The Competition/Plus Challenger is an $18,495 package and includes a number of accessories, both performance and style related. The cars are available in red, white, silver and blue, and all come with matte black Hurst graphics. The final exterior touch is a set of forged aluminum wheels shod with BF Goodrich KDW tires.

Inside, the cars get a black shift knob as well as a plaque of authenticity located on the dash. For the performance nuts, Hurst also offers a K&N high-flow air filter, a Magnaflow stainless-steel exhaust, and an Eibach suspension system with coil-over adjustable shocks, springs, and a sway bar.
