NowCar Dodge Trip Wire Last Call Ad

Dodge Releases "Trip Wire" Ad and Hints at Final "Last Call" Horsepower

Written By, Jordan R

If you’ve been following our coverage on the cryptic ads by Dodge about the final “Last Call” model, then you’re probably on the edge of your seat waiting for the big reveal on March 20, 2023 at the Dodge Last Call Powered by Roadkill Nights Vegas event at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. So, are we, and we have some pretty big hopes for the seventh and final “Last Call” model after the latest ad. Little hints here and there, a blur of numbers on a watch, even the name “Trip Wire” is a hint, as many others have. Let’s break it all down one last time with the final “Last Call” ad starring the golden-eyed Leprechaun.

The “Last Call” models all have one thing in common – they pay homage to a Dodge model of the past. Starting with the Challenger Shakedown R/T Scat Pack (available with a Widebody package), this paid its respects to the original Dodge Shakedown Challenger concept. They were followed by the 2023 Dodge Charger Super Bee, a Charger variant of the Challenger 1320 grassroots race package, and the Challenger-Charger Duet, the 2023 Dodge Challenger and Charger Scat Pack Swingers, but not the kind our more mature readers may be thinking of. The 2023 Dodge Charger King Daytona was the fifth “Last Call” model, with a history dating back to the 1960s and 1970s with William “Big Willie” Robinson dominating the drag strip – he named his 1969 Dodge Charger “King Daytona”. Paying homage to the Dodge “Black Ghost, the 2023 Dodge Challenger Black Ghost is built on a Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye Widebody, able to generate 807 horsepower.

Tim Kuniskis said each “Last Call” model would honor vehicles that hold a special place in the brand’s history. So, what could the last and final “Last Call” model be? We’ve been getting hints all along, and we think we may have an idea. What if, and stay with us here…what if Dodge was crazy enough to bring back the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon? No- what if they brought it back as a Challenger and a Charger?! The original SRT Demon only lasted a year, too much for public streets, and strictly bought by racecar fans who wanted to burn rubber on the drag strip of raceways and speedway tracks. Since then, Dodge has released the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye (demon-inspired and made of SRT Demon parts), its counter-part Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye, and finally, the Dodge Challenger SRT Super Stock.

Perhaps the automaker learned from its mistake with the original SRT Demon and has been testing the limits of its engineering a little more at a time. After all, the SRT Hellcat Redeye has a max horsepower of 797 horsepower, and just above that is the SRT Super Stock at 807 horsepower. Dodge has also claimed that the automaker doesn’t want to take the spotlight off of some of its already powerful models in the lineup, including the Mopar Hellephant 1000HP engine kit. Based on the ads about the final “Last Call” model, we know the following specs:  a quarter-mile time of 8.9996 seconds at a top Speed of 131 mph, powered by an engine with an airflow rate of 1582 cubic feet per minute (CFM), a 12.58 PSI boost (just a guess), and an additional 7.1 pounds of air density…or torque, given its lb-ft measurement unit.

All of these numbers are very reminiscent of, without overshadowing, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. The ads have been just as cryptic, too. It’s a very real possibility that the final “Last Call” model is going to spill some blood and call the SRT Demon back from Hell. The big reveal is Monday, March 20, 2023. What do you think the final “Last Call” model will be? Let us know on NowCar social media.
