If you thought the super powered Dodge Challenger Hellcat was the best Dodge could come up with, think again. The first factory-built Dodge Challenger drag racer tore into the pavement not long ago. Dodge unveiled two Drag Pak versions that make the Hellcat model look like a pint-sized pipsqueak.
The two Challenger Drag Pak models will run you a pretty penny more than the Hellcat. The Challenger 354 runs in at around $110,000 while the Challenger 426 rounds out at nearly $100,000.
Dodge isn’t telling just how much power the Drag Pak engines pump out, but we know what’s under the hood. The Challenger 354 rocks a supercharged 5.7-liter Hemi; it’s the first supercharged car in Fiat Chrysler’s Mopar parts group, which was founded way back in 1937.
The Challenger 354 can hit 150 mph in the quarter mile and runs the distance in eight seconds. That’s huge in drag racing.
If you’re hoping to grab one of these monsters, you’ll have to be quick. Only 60 Challenger Drag Pak 354 and 426s will be built in 2015. Ordering begins in late July and the drag racers will be built in July and August.
We are so glad to see a supercharged Dodge Challenger entering the drag racing ring!
