All 60 2016 Mopar Challenger Drag Paks Are Spoken For


Dodge-Challenger-Drag-Pack-0

When Mopar announced they were releasing their new Challenger Drag Pak a while back, they also announced only 60 examples would be built with either the supercharged 354 cubic inch Hemi or the naturally aspirated 426 cubic inch Hemi. 35 examples of the Drag Pak Challenger would be packing the blown 354 Hemi while the other 25 would be fitted with the 426 Hemi.

Mopar never released official power figures for either of the engine packages since the final output numbers varies based on the tuning of each individual car as left to the owner. What we do know is a Drag Pak Challenger that was running at the Gatornationals last month was making somewhere in the area of 1,200 horsepower and managed to make consistent 1/4 mile passes in the 8.50-8.60 range!

Chelsea – June 25, 2015 – Ross McGinnis, Vice President — Mopar Sales and Product Development, unveiled the next-generation Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak, a factory-prepped package car specifically geared for drag racing. The vehicle is built on the Dodge Challenger platform and will come with the option of either the brand’s first ever offering of a supercharged 354-cubic-inch Gen III HEMI® engine or a naturally aspirated 426-cubic-inch Gen III HEMI engine.

All of the Challenger Drag Pak cars come with a 3-speed automatic transmission fully built for drag racing, a lightweight braking system and a suspension system optimized for weight transfer and traction. These cars are built stripped down to the bare essentials. These Challengers are not street legal and cannot be registered in the United States as they are purpose built race cars.

It comes to no surprise that as of now, all 60 of the Drag Pak Challengers have been spoken for by dealerships around the country. MSRP on these cars come in at $99,426 USD for the 426 Hemi powered ones while the supercharged 354 Hemi versions will set you back a cool $109,354 USD. Of course, like the Hellcat models; with these cars being so limited, any cars available at dealers around the country will probably have a fairly high markup added. Since all of the cars have been ordered and spoken for by various dealerships, the only chance to get one brand new lies in your ability to find a dealership with one for sale and from there you can decide how deep your pockets feel.
