Dodge had initially planned to introduced the seventh and final “Last Call” special edition car at the 2022 SEMA Show. The project wasn’t ready for it’s grand debut in Vegas and it became unclear as to when we could see the last limited edition muscle car.
We know now that the seventh Last Call special edition vehicle – likely based on the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye – will still debut in Las Vegas, but not at a massive show like SEMA. Instead, the final special edition Hemi-powered muscle car will debut at the Dodge Last Call Performance Festival.
“The Dodge ‘Last Call’ event will be a celebration of Dodge performance,” said Tim Kuniskis, Dodge brand chief executive officer – Stellantis. “While the ‘Last Call’ special-edition model we will reveal at Las Vegas and the electrified Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept represent different performance eras for our brand, both are linked by a commitment to delivering the Brotherhood of Muscle a vehicle that drives like a Dodge, looks like a Dodge and sounds like a Dodge. No matter the era, Dodge will always be about muscle, attitude and performance, and that’s what this event will celebrate.”
Right now the details are limited, but we know that on March 20th, the Dodge Last Call Performance Festival will be held at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. At that event, the seventh Last Call special edition car will be introduced, but it will be far more than just a car on display.
Of course, the other six special Last Call cars will be on display, as will the all-electric Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Concept. The brand will showcase a close-up look at the current and future performance car lineup, but it isn’t just a bunch of new and concept cars on display.
Las Vegas Motor Speedway has a quarter-mile drag strip, so we can expect a drag racing program, a Dodge car show, Dodge thrill rides, celebrity appearances and a “post-event afterglow” – whatever that might be. The press release states that this event will be open to the public, but we are unsure right now how to get involved in the Dodge car show or the drag racing program.
Based on what little we know right now, it sounds as though the Dodge Last Call Performance Festival could be similar to Roadkill Nights and if that is the case, the racing and car show program will be based on an online registration process. Really, aside from the legal street racing in Detroit, this event in March should offer a very similar feel to Roadkill Nights. Roadkill Nights has always been an incredible event, so we expect that the Dodge Last Call Performance Festival will be a great time as well.
