Only 50 of Mopar’s new Challenger Drag Pak will be made, each with a serialized plaque for the sake of collectability [Ewww]. This master of the 1320 is powered by a supercharged 354-cubic inch V8 through a 3-speed manually-shifted quick auto to a super sturdy Strange-built 9" rear stick axle. While Dodge didn’t say exactly how much horsepower it makes, or how fast it’ll go, or what kinds of times it will run, it is improved over the outgoing Drag Pak, which was capable of running 7.60s in the quarter mile.


Unveiled this evening at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, the Drag Pak is rumored to be cranking out over 1500 horsepower, if you believe Hot Rod Magazine. The roll cage inside this car is certified with the NHRA to run at least 7.50s, so it’s pretty likely that Mopar is aiming for that number or quicker. The rear suspension is a custom 4-link. The wheel package is a lightweight Weld Racing aluminum wheel wrapped in massive Mickey Thompson wrinkle wall slicks. That should put the power down alright.


This car will be eligible for competition in NHRA Stock and Super Stock as well as the SAM Tech.edu Factory Stock Showdown. Unfortunately most of the 50 cars here will be sold to collectors who sock them away in climate controlled collections, never once setting tire to a sticky quarter mile.

You hate to see it, folks.

Sadly all of them except for the 1 that is given to media to test will just sit in peoples collections and never be run or seen of for decades.

Just like they let 500 people run 9.65 in a demon.....then they ran 10.50's
Fake news. They run 10.50 (or better) in as delivered form. EVERYONE knew the 9.65 was with the Demon add-ons and perfect conditions. The unlocked PCM, race gas, skinny tires, no seats, perfect weather, and Leah Pritchett driving. Not one Demon owners was expecting 9.65s out of the box.

This is an important car because that will help the Demon prices drop some.

Even with all the addons and race gas, they still struggled to break out of the tens. And thats assuming the rear end didnt shatter before hand.

Markup will be closer to $175k and they will sell out the day ordering is open to the public.
Curious to see how many owners actually take them to the track. I'm betting a good number of them will go right in to storage
