2010 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak

Mopar announced today the Dodge Challenger Drag Pak built for sanctioned NHRA Stock, Super Stock and Comp Eliminator configurations.

The tuning house has also announced that interested customers who are willing to avail of this package can order them for a princely sum of $39,999.

The car is based on the SRT8 version and is powered by a 6.1 liter HEMI engine that comes in either a 5-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission. The car is painted in a retro Stone White paint scheme and Mopar engineers eliminated select production components and systems to reduce vehicle weight by approximately 1,000 lbs.

The Challenger Drag Pak also features unique drag-race components including: composite lift-off hood with functional scoop, Dodge Viper-style front seats, polycarbonate door windows, a light-weight cooling module with electric fan, manual rack-and-pinion steering, a special cable-operated deck-lid release, special light-weight front-brake assemblies and special cable-operated throttle linkage and pedal assembly.

No wonder the Challenger Drag Pak commands such a price; it comes with just about every available feature anyone can get for their Challengers.

Is it even street legal? Anyhow, that is a lot of horse power and I think it will be burning a lot of fuel as well. But I’m quite sure that muscle car enthusiasts will definitely fall in line to get their hands on one of these babies.

@ anthonyevers37 - agree with you, your just like me, I’ve always wanted to watch a muscle car come head to head with GT-R.

dang that was a super kick, it even lifted the heavy Engine block. well you wont experience it with the GT-R.
