More details about the event have been announced.
Dodge has revealed more details about the "Dodge Last Call Powered by Roadkill Nights Vegas" event that will see the debut of the seventh and final Last Call model. Now, besides the name being a mouthful, it seems Dodge is going all out for the event as it also appears to be functioning as a final sendoff for the Hemi-powered Charger and Challenger lines.
The event will take place on March 20th, 2023 in Las Vegas, and will play host to drag racing, thrill rides, a display of spectator vehicles, exhibition runs, and even a performance by the Grammy-winning superstar DJ Diplo. The Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept and the seventh Last Call model will be the show's focal points, simulating a passing of the torch of sorts.
The event will take place at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and will be the first of two 2023 Roadkill Nights events. The Roadkill Nights Vegas event will feature celebrity appearances by TV personalities David Freiburger, Mike Finnegan, KJ Jones, Chris Jacobs, and Alex Taylor, plus famed blues and rock guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd and automotive television host Mike Musto.
Tickets for the event start at $25, but if you're interested in displaying your vehicle the price goes up to $60. This is a Dodge event though, and the company would like the show to mainly feature the brand, so any Dodge owner who brings their car gets in for free. The final Last Call model will then be revealed that evening at 6 pm and will be live-streamed on youtube and DodgeGarage.com.
There's no word on if any of the other Last Call models will make an appearance, but we assume there's a good chance. If you don't already know, the previously released models are the Dodge Challenger Shakedown, Dodge Charger Super Bee, Dodge Challenger and Charger Scat Pack Swinger, Dodge Charger King Daytona, and Dodge Challenger Black Ghost.
All Last Call models will be available in highly-limited numbers and will feature a Last Call plaque under the hood. To no one's surprise, this means that the insane dealer markups are already here, meaning you'll most likely be paying double for whichever model you seek to buy. Is It worth it? That's up to you, but we're inclined to recommend against it for a myriad of reasons.
This final model's debut is also a long time coming, after months of delays that have stemmed from parts shortages and reportedly blowing engines during testing.
All we know is that we're most likely in for something bigger and badder than the previous ones. Maybe Dodge is pushing the capability of the 6.2-liter supercharged V8, which is why the engine's been blowing up. Maybe the company decided to go all out and shove the 1,100 horsepower Hellephant engine into a model to really leave all the cards on the table. Whatever the case, we're going to be tuning in on March 20th to find out.
