Mopar has announced details on the 2010 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak program
Mopar, the Chrysler brand's high-performance parts division has revealed its 2010 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak program. Following the great success of the last year's Challenger Drag Pak program, the new version is here and ready to burn rubber.
The 2010 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak non-street legal ride is powered by a 6.1-liter V8 HEMI engine linked to a 5-speed automatic or a 6-speed manual transmission. Based on the 2010 Challenger SRT8 model, the rear-wheel drive Drag vehicle is finished in a Stock Eliminator configuration, which means that the specialists at Mopar have eliminated select production components and systems to reduce weight. Thanks to the weight savings, the 2010 Challenger Drag Pak packs 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.
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."
Okayed for the NHRA Stock, Super Stock and the Comp Eliminator drag racing, the new Dodge Challenger Drag Pak is distinguished by retro Stone White shade and is price tagged at $39,999 MSRP. The manufacturing process of the 2010 model is scheduled from the summer 2010.
