The winningest NASCAR shop, Petty’s Garage, took their 60 years of experience and put it into their 2010 Richard Petty Signature Series Challenger. Richard Petty, the NASCAR legend, wanted to build his own high-performance daily street car. Only 200 units will be built. 43 of them in 2010. Petty’s Challenger runs Arrington customized R/T’s 5.7 liter V8 that develops 600 HP. Since the car is based on 2010 Challenger R/T with 27F option, this means it gets 6-speed manual, limited-slip diff and “track pak”.
Signature Series will also receive revised suspension, Hurst short throw shifter, Brembo brakes, Forgeline wheels and… black paint scheme. That’s right – black, not “Petty Blue”. The price: donor 2010 Challenger R/T + $34-38K.
