After the 2009 Challenger Drag Pak enjoyed such a warm welcome from enthusiasts, Mopar elected to kick off the new year by giving hardcore drag racers more of what they love with the 2010 Challenger Drag Pak. Outfitted with a 6.1L HEMI V8 (can be configured for a 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic transmission), the 2010 Drag Pak weighs in at roughly 1, 000 pounds less than its street-legal counterpart and features enough mods to blow your doors off (on the track, of course).
Essentially a Challenger SRT8 on the juice, the Drag Pak features a composite lift-off hood with functional scoop, 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 lightweight front-brake assemblies and special cable-operated throttle linkage and pedal assembly.
Although it’s not street legal, the Drag Pak is easy enough to order and can be purchased directly from Mopar through your local Dodge dealership for $39, 999.
Were proud of our drag racing heritage at Mopar, and we will continue to support our drag-race customers where they compete, said Pietro Gorlier, President and Chief Executive Officer – Mopar Service, Parts and Customer Care, Chrysler Group LLC. The Dodge Challenger Drag Pak program was a success last year, and well be carrying that momentum into our 2010 build.
Full disclosure: as we mentioned briefly above, the Challenger Drag Pak is NOT street legal, which means we won’t accept responsibility for any damages, tickets or jail time you incur when cruising the streets for kids in tuned imports to shame.
