2011 Mopar Challenger V10 Drag Pak
In 2009 and 2010, Dodge released a special edition Challenger called the
Drag Pak. Both editions sold out fast so the Mopar boys are building
another one for 2011. If the '09 and '10 models went quick, this one is
going to be gone before you're done reading this paragraph.
Instead of sticking with the 6.1-liter Hemi V8 used last year, the 2011
Mopar Challenger Drag Pak crams a 512-cubic inch, 8.4-liter V10 engine and
mates it to a two-speed automatic transmission. If those engine numbers
sound familiar, and they should, it's because that's the same unit used in
the Dodge Viper -- which produces 600 horsepower and 560
pound-feet of torque.
Go back and re-read that last line -- Viper-V10 powered. Drag-race ready.
Besides the massive mill, this Mopar Challenger Drag Pak also features
everything you need to start your professional drag racing career. Get your
reading glasses out because there's a long list of features, some of which
we've highlighted below (the rest can be seen after the jump):
512 cid V-10 engine
2-speed automatic transmission with shift assembly and built-in roll
Special body-in-white modified for drag racing
Complete fuel cell assembly
Polycarbonate door windows
Lightweight drag-race only front brake assembly
Race-style wheels and tires
Only 70 units will be produced and they'll each have a starting MSRP of
$85,512. There are also three available optional packages for the car. The
Competition Package costs $7,950 and adds an eight-point roll cage,
six-point safety harness and a mesh window net. The Mopar Body Logo Wrap
will cost you $950. Finally, there is a range of available body colors if
you don't like the Bright White paint scheme, and they run $6,800.
The 2011 Mopar Challenger V10 Drag Pak will make its debut at the upcoming
2010 SEMA Show in early November. Since there are only going to be 70 made,
that may be the last time you see one unless you run down to your local
Dodge dealer and fill out an application to own one.

FASTEST STREET CAR IN THE WORLD! Larry Larson runs 6.95 @ 209 on Drag Week!!!
http://www.1320video.com/store/dvd/ Larry Larson proves his car once again
to be the fastest street car in the world by completing Hot Rod Magazin'es
Drag Week 2010 AND making the first 6 second pass in Drag Week history! Not
only did he make a 6 second pass, but he made that pass after driving 1200
miles on country roads, rain, and he did it 20 minutes after a 7.005 pass,
hot lapping the car!
This is our 24 cylinder Detroit that we are putting in a custom 359
Peterbilt. It will use an Allison Transmission, and the engine will be in
the front of the truck. We are starting off with 40 foot 4" X 14" rectangle
rails, not sure how long it will end up being.
