2015 Series III Mopar Challenger Drag Pak

Mopar is pulling the front wheels (that's hooking up) on this monster and that 426 Hemi sounds so sweet!  Hey muscle car world, the pressure is on once again.

From Mopar:

Remaining true to its roots, the brand is continuing its commitment to Sportsman racing with the development of the next generation Mopar Drag Pak. 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. The Mopar Challenger Drag Pak is the only modern era package car to win the Stock Eliminator title at the U.S. Nationals and has also won Factory Shootout races. 

Under the hood, Sportsman racers saw a 426 cubic-inch Race HEMI engine with an aluminum block, steel liners and custom engine calibration. The car boasts a Chrysler-based 727 automatic transmission connects up to a racing style shift lever, with integral line lock and an aluminum driveshaft.  The vehicle also is equipped with a weigh box in the trunk and a trunk-mounted 12 volt battery.  The test vehicle’s front suspension currently sports the 2015 Mopar K-Member and strut suspension geometry, front struts with adjustable compression and rebound.  At the back of the car, racers will find a four-link rear suspension with Panhard bar, rear solid axle with 9-inch aluminum third member, rear shocks with adjustable compression and rebound, and an anti-sway bar.
