Originally introduced in 1968, Dodge’s Scat Pack Club connected the brand’s muscle car enthusiasts. The idea received such a positive response that Dodge decided to follow it up with performance kits for their fans.

The kits were produced in the factory and sold to owners of the brand’s high performance vehicles, giving them the opportunity to identify themselves as Scat Pack members.

The initial kits, or Scat Packages, didn’t alter the car aside from providing a racing stripe and decals with the Super Bee logo.

But over time, Mopar also started producing stage kits that included parts to enhance power and speed.

In 2014, Dodge decided to resurrect the Scat Pack idea which began 45 years ago. In honor of the anniversary, Dodge Dealers in South Florida are offering three different Scat Packages for modern Challenger, Charger, and Dart owners to take advantage of.

Dodge CEO, Tim Kuniskis, said, “Bringing back factory stage kits allows Dodge enthusiasts to extract the maximum performance from their vehicles without the fear and guesswork typically associated with modifying late-model vehicles.”

Here’s a look at the options Dodge has made available. Which kind of Scat Pack would you love to have?

Mopar Scat Pack 1

If you’re looking for just a bit more energy from your pony car and you want to rock the Scat badge, this package is for you. Get a boost of up to 20 horsepower and 22 lb.-ft. of torque for just over $2K.

The kit includes:

  • Cold air intake
  • Cat-Back exhaust
  • Stage 1 performance PCM
