The Drag Pak is designed for drivers who compete in nationally sanctioned drag racing series such as the National Hot Rod Association, FCA says.
What makes it a drag racer? For starters, it comes with either a supercharged 354 HEMI engine or a naturally aspirated 426 Race Hemi under its hood. It has a race-prepped automatic transmission for both cars.
The new Drag Pak includes the Dodge Challenger front and rear fascia trim and a redesigned full roll cage fabricated to NHRA specifications.
The car has a redesigned roll cage that meets NHRA specifications. The cockpit resembles a stock Challenger, but includes the addition of a Mopar gauge pack, racing seats, a safety net and a five-point harness.
Customers can begin ordering the Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak on July 23 through authorized Dodge dealerships.
It has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $99,426 for the 426-engine version and of $109,354 for the 354-HEMI car. More information can be found at www.mopar.com/mopar-drag-pak.
