DODGE WILL DEBUT ITS FINAL ‘LAST CALL’ MUSCLE CAR ON MARCH 20

To Mark The Occassion, There Will Be A Festival At Las Vegas Motor Speedway

2022 Roadkill Nights By Dodge

Don’t call it Spring Fest, and don’t call it Roadkill Nights, either. But Dodge is throwing a massive festival at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 20th, 2023. Formally known as the “Last Call” performance festival, the primary occasion is to mark the end of the brand’s modern muscle car era as we know it. The stars of the show will be the highly-anticipated “Last Call” special edition muscle car, as well as the all-electric Charger Daytona SRT Concept.

Interestingly, Dodge purposely omitted the “Banshee” name when describing the electric Dodge Charger concept, suggesting that we could be seeing a third variant of the all-electric muscle car. The first being the gray one that debuted during Speed Week in August of 2022, and the second being the red one with new wheels and drag radials that was on display during the 2022 SEMA Show. That being the case, we could see something that’s more production-intent this go-round, with a more down-to-earth interior and perhaps even an update to the sound of the Fratzonic Chambered Exhaust system. Early details on what to expect from the powertrain were given during a 2022 SEMA Show backgrounder presentation.

Dodge “Last Call” Grand Finale Muscle Car Reveal

What was supposed to debut at the 2022 SEMA Show, but got pushed back due to exploding engines, the grand finale of Dodge’s “Last Call” line of Chargers and Challengers will be revealed. Rumors have swirled that this all-conquering beast of a muscle car could run on E85 fuel in order to get the most horsepower from its Hemi V8 as possible. And where other Last Call Dodges have come in both Charger and Challenger flavor, this one is expected to be Challenger only. It is the seventh and final “Last Call” model following the Challenger Shakedown, Charger Super Bee, Challenger and Charger Scat Pack Swinger, Charger King Daytona and Challenger Black Ghost.

More Event Details

Enthusiasts who can’t attend in person will be able to watch the Dodge “Last Call” special-edition reveal via Livestream at DodgeGarage.com. Additional details on the Dodge “Last Call” celebration in Las Vegas will be shared at a later date on Dodge.com and DodgeGarage.com. Also taking place during the Dodge “Last Call” festival will be the fan-favorite Thrill Rides, as well as a Dodge car show, celebrity appearances, and even drag racing. Like I mentioned, it’s basically Roadkill Nights taking place on the outskirts of Las Vegas instead of Woodward Avenue in Pontiac, Michigan.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
