When it comes to racing in a straight line, you’ll find out this type of motorsport is not for everyone. However, those who practice it and understand it need a bag of goodies from time to time. Here’s where Mopar comes into play.
The brand just unveiled the next-generation Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak, which is nothing else than a factory-prepped package car specifically geared for drag racing.
The vehicle is built on the Dodge Challenger platform and will come with the option of either the brand’s – attention please – first-ever lineup of a supercharged 354-cubic-inch (5.8-liter) HEMI engine or a naturally aspirated 426-cubic-inch (7.0-liter) HEMI unit.
On that note, we’ll also want to add that the car’s internal organs have also been upgraded.
For example, the vehicle’s front suspension sports a Mopar K-Member and suspension geometry, with double adjustable compression and rebound struts.
At the rear, engineers installed a four-link suspension with Panhard bar, Strange Engineering 4-inch solid axle with 9-inch aluminum third member, 40-spline gun drilled axles, shocks with adjustable compression & rebound and an anti-roll bar.
Visually speaking, the new Drag Pak includes the Dodge Challenger front and rear fascia trim, and a redesigned NHRA-approved full roll cage.
Inside, you’ll find the Dodge Challenger interior, which received a Mopar gauge pack, driver and passenger lightweight racing seats, along with a safety net and a five-point harness.
Now, for the spicy part, that is the price. MSRP for the naturally aspirated 426 version of the Mopar Challenger Drag Pak is $99,426 while the 354 supercharged version can be had for $109,354 MSRP.
