2011 Mopar Challenger v10 Drag Pak
The Mopar brand made its mark in the 1960s – the muscle-car era. The Chrysler Corporation built race-ready Dodge and Plymouth “package cars” equipped with special high-performance parts. Mopar carried a line of “special parts” for super-stock drag racers and developed its racing parts division called Mopar Performance Parts.
The latest incarnation of this proud bloodline is the race-only V-10 powered rear-wheel drive 2011 Mopar Challenger V10 Drag Pak. It features an 8.4-liter 512 cubic-inch engine with a 2-speed automatic transmission. Built for sanctioned NHRA Stock and Super Stock configurations, the Drag Pak is already making its presence felt, carrying many drivers to the victory stand and earning a place as a future classic.
Based on the 2011 Dodge Challenger and finished in a Stock Eliminator and Super Stock configuration, the 2011 Mopar Challenger V-10 Drag Pak is the first and only 500+ cubic inch V-10 drag race package car. The car features competition wheels and tires, a Mopar solid rear axle with performance gear ratio, a 2-speed drag race transmission with integrated roll control, a complete competition fuel system with fuel cell, and a complete interior with gauge package.
Only 70 of these cars were built. Each one is meticulously built by hand. Mine is the Drag Pak #33. That number makes this car even more special to me, as it was my grandfather, Buddy Byers’s, racing number during his legendary days as an unlimited hydroplane boat race driver. The number is prominently and proudly displayed on the front badge.
This car is out-of-the-box-race-ready. They are already setting track and national records with little to no modifications made to them. Whether you are a racer, a collector, or just a fan, this car is one to be sure on your list to see. The second you hear it start up, you know it means business!
