In late 2008, Chrysler revealed details of their "Drag Pak" program that
was set for release for the 2009 model year. They would produce a small
volume of stripped down, drag race package Challengers in order to meet
The 2009 models were available with 3 engine options; 6.1L HEMI, 5.7L HEMI
or 5.9L Magnum Wedge. The 2010 models only come with the 6.1L HEMI. Both
offer the choice of a 5-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission.
The Drag Pak features many drag race components including, but not limited
to, a composite lift-off hood with functional scoop, Viper style front seats,
polycarbonate door windows, electric fan, manual rack and pinion, cable
operated deck-lid release, lightweight front brakes, and cable operated
throttle and pedal.
The cars begin as body-in-white packages with many usual features missing
to reduce weight. No body sealer, sound deadener or undercoat. There is
also no windshield wiper assembly, HVAC system, airbags, rear seats, power
steering, exhaust or underbody heat shields.
