If you’re a fan of the cult classic, Vanishing Point, you’ll be happy to hear that a dealership in New Wilmington, Pennsylvania has taken it upon themselves to build and release their own “Kowalski Approved” edition of the Challenger, as a tribute to the 1971 film.
If you’ve never seen the movie, the plot involves a car delivery guy (Kowalski) who’s been challenged to deliver a car from Denver to San Francisco in less than 15 hours. But not just any car. A white 1970 Dodge Challenger. Throughout his trip over the barren desert highways, Kowalski runs into a series of cops and interesting characters, including a gay hitchhiker and naked motorcyclist.
Fast forward to 2011, and the Kowalski Edition Challenger is basically a 2011 392 Inaugural Edition SRT8, the only edition you can find with a bright white paint job. The car includes a 392 cubic inch “Mopar” big block, six-speed manual, stripe delete, and 20-inch Aloa SRT aluminum rims.
The interior is also given a few nice touches, including a wood grain Hurst pistol shifter and dark slate SRT seats. A 730 Navigation kit rounds out the package. To give the car authenticity, there is a numbered plaque on the dash, engine bay, and a few “Kowalski” decals on the exterior.
Only ten of these special editions will be made, each one, unfortunately, already spoken for.
