First Drive: Is 2011 Dodge Charger still style over substance?
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Forty four years ago the very first Dodge Charger rolled off the assembly line and for much of that time some would say that the Charger has been style over substance. For 2011 Dodge says that's all changed. Now that Dodge's parent company Chrysler is owned by European Fiat, the new Charger is a much more of a blend of European driving dynamics with more traditional American car muscle. But you have to wonder does it all work.

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. Mopar Challenger.
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 control
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.
