Debuting alongside the new 2011 Challenger SRT8 392 at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Dodge unveiled an even more potent version of its Mopar Drag Pak model. While you might expect it to also come with a 392 under the hood, you’d be wrong. In it’s place is something even better: the Viper’s 8.4-liter V10! That’s right, with 512 cubic inches of displacement, the engine makes 600-hp and 560 ft-lbs of torque.
Also included in the package is a 2-speed automatic transmission, fuel cell, light weight polycarbonate door windows, lightweight drag racing front brakes and racing wheels and tires. And of course, it’s a full body-in-white with everything stripped out so you can take it straight to the track.
Just 70 versions of the Mopar Challenger V10 Drag Pak will be built, for the price of $85,512. Like street cars, Dodge will offer option packs, including a $7,950 Competition Package with an eight-point coll cage, six-point safety harnesses and a mesh window net. There’s also a $950 Mopar Body Logo Wrap, or paint for $6,800.
