Default Mopar Dodge Challenger V10 Drag Pak

Mopar Introduces 2011 Challenger Drag Pak for Sportsman Racers - This One Has a V-10 and is Race-ready






  • MoparŪ Challenger V-10 Drag Pak built for sanctioned NHRA Stock and Super Stock configurations Priced at $85,512
  • Mopar to build 70 serialized units Production starts 1Q 2011, applications available now at local Dodge dealerships or at www.mopar.com
  • Past Mopar Challenger Drag Pak model-year programs sold out (2009 and 2010)
  • October 1, 2010 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Racers rejoice. MoparŪ is dropping a V-10 into the iconic Dodge Challenger.
The new race-only V-10 powered rear-wheel drive 2011 Mopar Challenger Drag Pak features an 8.4-liter 512 cubic-inch engine with a 2-speed automatic transmission. Mopar will showcase its new drag car this evening at the Dodge Viper Owner's Invitational in Salt Lake City. The vehicle will then make its way to the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas from Nov. 2-5, and the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) show in Orlando from Dec. 9-11.

"With the introduction of our new 2011 Mopar Challenger Drag Pak, Mopar will be the only place to get a factory-built V-10-powered race-ready drag car," said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group's service, parts and customer-care brand. "Mopar's new Challenger Drag Pak is a race rocket that will appeal to racers, collectors, dealers, and Dodge Viper owners."

Based on the 2011 Dodge Challenger and finished in a Stock Eliminator and Super Stock configuration, the 2011 Mopar Challenger V-10 Drag Pak is the first and only 500-plus cubic-inch V-10 drag-race package car. The car features competition wheels and tires, a Mopar solid rear axle with performance gear ratio, a 2-speed drag race transmission with integrated roll control, a complete competition fuel system with fuel cell, and a complete interior with gauge package.

The Mopar Challenger V-10 Drag Pak features a Bright White paint scheme with color options. The Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) is $85,512 and production begins early next year.

Mopar offers three options with this vehicle. First, the Competition Package includes an eight-point roll cage, six-point safety harness and a mesh window net (MSRP: $7,950, part number P5155820). Second, a Mopar logo body wrap (MSRP: $950, part number P5155892) and a range of body colors (MSRP: $6,800, part number P5155893). With the Competition Package, the car is ready to go down the drag strip.

Orders must be submitted using the Mopar Challenger V-10 Drag Pak Application, which is available now at www.Mopar.com, the Mopar Direct Connection Tech Line at 888-528-HEMI (4364), or a local Dodge dealer. Customers should work with their local Dodge dealer to submit their application.

What?
You have no idea how much it costs to transform a OEM road car to a complete and COMPETITIVE drag car dont you?

Do a bit of search here....then re-think and evaluate how WRONG you are. That drag pack could be considered a deal among some serious drag racers....

Now lets see GM have the ***** to do something like this.

$85k is a pretty damn good price for a brand new competitive drag racer. Stock eliminator/Super Stock are very competitive series, so to have a car prepared from the factory is pretty cool. I know Ford also has a Mustang like this (Cobra Jet), does Chevy have a similar Camaro?

I like the car I'd jsut think by them taking out all those amenities that'd it'd be a cheaper car. I mean a srt-8 runs about what 45k? I understand theres a few upgrades including that V10 but for $85,000 thats a ton of money for a car thats only good for a straight line with bare bones.

what kinda times they are claiming?

The Drag Pak is intended for supervised off-road competitive events only and is not legal for street use.

Again....dude, what do you think a competitive, well built drag car cost?? Ask any serious racer, you could spend over $100,000+ easily. Thats in mods only BTW, Im not considering the cost of the car before it was converted for drag race use. This complete package by MOPAR is in reality a very competitive, ready to use drag car for a nice price. What do you think is the price of that engine alone?

You are trying to compare this type of car against a street legal, sport or exotic car. There is no comparison whatsoever.

I like your thinking. As soon as I saw it I thought..."what would it take to make it street legal??" Its a badass ride for sure. There were some rumors of a V10 Challenger for regular street use, a SRT10 beast for a DD...one can only dream, right?
