The test version of the factory-built drag race car was presented at the Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis – site of the annual NHRA U.S. Nationals ahead of more than 150 Sportsman class drag racers and fans.
The Challenger Drag Pak test car showed a Chrysler-based 727 automatic transmission, race-style stick shift with line lock and an aluminum driveshaft.
The suspension includes a Mopar K-member and struts up front, and a solid rear axle with a four-link suspension and Panhard bar.
The interior is fitted with an NHRA-spec roll cage, lightweight driver and front passenger racing seats, safety belts and nets, and Mopar gauges.
Set to be built in a limited number of units, the 2015 Mopar Challenger Drag Pak test vehicle is the next step in the evolution of the modern day package car whose earlier incarnations include more than 150 V8 Challenger Drag Paks, an additional fifty V10 versions, as well as 426 Race HEMI® upgrade kits.
