Mopar Performance has launched a new edition Dodge Challenger Drag Pak which is perfect for those who are seeking a very cool and affordable dragster for local competitions. The non-street legal Challenger Drag Pak costs only 40 grand and comes with a 6.1 liter HEMI SRT8 V8 and is about half a tone lighter than a road-going challenger thanks to new racing parts such as composite hood and polycarbonate door windows. The production of this model starts in Summer.
Pietro Gorlier, President and Chief Executive Officer Mopar Service, Parts and Customer Care, Chrysler Group LLC says “We’re proud of our drag racing heritage at Mopar and we will continue to support our drag-race customers where they compete. The Dodge Challenger Drag Pak program was a success last year, and we’ll be carrying that momentum into our 2010 build.”
