Dealers Open Order Books for 2015-'16 Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak on July 23


AUBURN HILLS, Michigan Dodge dealers will open the order books for the 2015-'16 Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak racecar beginning July 23, Fiat-Chrysler said on Friday.

The naturally aspirated 426 version of the new Mopar Challenger Drag Pak is priced at $99,426; the 354 supercharged racecar is priced at $109,354.

Fiat-Chrysler spokeswoman Pat Caporali told Edmunds there is no destination charge, since the owner must pick up the vehicle.

Caporali said the Mopar Challenger Drag Pak is a factory-prepped package car. It is not street legal and is intended for the racetrack only. It is aimed at racers who compete in nationally sanctioned drag-racing series, such as the National Hot Rod Association.

The new Mopar Challenger Drag Pak marks the first time Mopar will offer racers a supercharged engine option.

Buyers have the choice of a 354-cubic-inch supercharged Hemi engine or a naturally aspirated 426-cubic-inch Hemi engine.

Each engine version carries a unique graphic identification package. The supercharged version features a Mopar Blue stripe and 354 Supercharged insignia. The naturally aspirated Drag Pak has a black stripe.

"The car comes in white and is essentially a clean slate," Caporali said. "Buyers can paint or decorate it as they like and add things like sponsorship names."

Other details include Dodge Challenger front and rear fascia trim and a redesigned full roll cage. The cabin gets a Mopar gauge pack, driver and passenger lightweight racing seats, a safety net and five-point harness.

Edmunds says: The 2009 program saw a first-year sell out of all 100 factory-built vehicles. Expect the new version to be snapped up quickly as well.
