2010 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak With Zero Miles!

The 2010 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak is a relatively unassuming looking vehicle designed for serious competition use. It is also a modern classic that is coveted by serious performance enthusiasts. This car was placed into storage when it was delivered to its original owner and has zero mileage on its odometer. He has decided to part with the Challenger, so he has listed it for sale here on eBay with No Reserve. The Dodge is located in Saint Louis, Missouri, and the bidding has been extraordinary up to this point. A total of 50 bids have been submitted at the time of writing, which has pushed the price along to $26,200.

Dodge designed the Drag Pak with a specific purpose in mind, and that was to move fast in a straight line. Available only in Stone White, the company worked to pare every excess ounce out of the car in a bid to give buyers the best bang for their buck. The target was to have a viable platform to compete in NHRA Stock, Super Stock, and Comp Eliminator competition. That means that the body is not adorned with unnecessary extras such as rubbing strips or dress trims. The door glass is lightweight polycarbonate, while the hood is a lift-off composite component. If you look closely, you will note that there are no exterior mirrors. These were removed to further shave ounces off the Challenger’s weight. The upshot of all of this work is a vehicle that tips the scales approximately 1,000lbs less than the Challenger SRT8 on which it was based. When the current owner took delivery of the car, he immediately placed it into climate-controlled storage. It has remained there ever since and is in as-new condition. It is free from any rust issues and is just waiting for someone to take it to the nearest strip and have some fun.

Removing weight was only part of the story with the Drag Pak because plenty of work went on under the skin. The car comes equipped with a 6.1-liter V8, and this has been breathed on quite heavily. It features a forged steel crankshaft, 12:1 pistons, a more aggressive camshaft, and a high-rise intake that sucks plenty of cold air through the functional hood scoop. There is manual rack-and-pinion steering, lightweight brakes, and a cooling system designed to further reduce the vehicle’s weight. Just how much power results from all of this hard work is not clear. The NHRA recognized it as producing 390hp, although the reality would have to be somewhat higher. The Drag Pak was available to be configured with either a manual or an automatic transmission, although the car was delivered without either a transmission or a rear-end. Those are two components that the buyer will need to supply. It is also worth remembering that Dodge designed this car strictly for competition use, and it is not road legal.

The interior of the Challenger is also in as-new condition, with the seats still wearing the plastic covers from the factory. Those seats are lightweight units from the Viper and, along with a leather-wrapped wheel, are the closest things to luxury appointments that you will find in the Drag Pak. Fancy air conditioning, cruise, power windows, or a stereo? You’ve come to the wrong place for those. The vehicle doesn’t even feature a heater, a rear seat, or a hand-brake. It would also be a noisy beast because there is no body sealer, sound deadener, or undercoating.

The owner claims that this 2010 Challenger Drag Pak is 1-of-52 built, and this claim does stand up to scrutiny. These were a handbuilt competition special, and at $39,999 when new, could not be classed as cheap. This is especially true when you consider that these cars could never be made street-legal. This one has done no work and is just waiting for someone to get it race-ready and then point it down the ¼ mile. Could that person be you?

    Are those white “trailer wheels” part of the Drag Pak package?

      The super rare trailer wheel option dropped 3/10ths of a second off the quarter mile time.

      Yes, actually. Following the same pattern as the 1960s LO23 Hemi Darts, the supplied wheels allow the buyer to get it on the trailer and into the garage. On a functional level, this car is obsolete, but like the Darts represent an era of history.

    I have had loads of new cars and never had zero miles. I wonder how they do it.
    They must drive it off and on transporters to move it?
    I think 4 has been lowest I have seen.
    It’s a cool thing though. Needs to be driven though to really be enjoyed.

      This is a factory built race car that cannot be registered to be street driven anywhere in the United States.

      Even when new, as delivered, they took thousands of dollars plus prep time to make them track ready. Even then they were not competitive in the classes they were designed to compete in. I had a friend with an early production COPO Camaro, they went through the engine, transmission and suspension, spending tens of thousands of dollars before it ever made a pass down the track. At this point in time, this car isn’t good for anything but looking at.

      It has no transmission or rear differential in it, so the odometer isn’t connected to anything.

      No transmission or rearend so no mileage unless you push it.

      With no tranny, where would the speedometer even read from? Would anybody even want this car?

      My current car had -4 (negative) miles on it when I took delivery.

      I think it’s pretty common – for imports at least – to start with negative mileage so they can deliver as close to zero as possible even after moving it around ports and lots and whatnot.

      How is the odometer going to work if the vehicle doesn’t have a transmission?

    I see a ten year old car with zero maintenance from new. What it was is not what it is.

    No Way In Hell Are Those Wheels Correct For A Drag Pack.

    I don’t know, I’m not seeing it being a big time collectors item….yet, and that’s the problem with it right now.
    No transmission or rear end means it’s not going anywhere regardless of horsepower, soooooo,
    and like Steve R points out, it can never be legally registered or driven on the street. That really sucks. It really does!
    Too expensive to buy and then start switching parts onto another Challenger, I guess, and they’re still making Challengers, Camaros, Mustangs, ,,,,so the uniqueness there isn’t happening either.
    Should’ve built that sucker and ran it.

    No gearbox? Who on earth would touch this? Bizarre

    Could you conceivably register this in a state with no inspection, put on a door mirror, quieter mufflers, & drive it on the street? Or does it not come with a VIN? I’m sure as is, it’s still safer than a street ’70-74 model.

      They do not have a VIN number.

    Jeff. Those are called “roll around” wheels. With the big slicks on the back, drag cars, and most race cars are a bear to move around in the shop. We have a set of old slotted mags we put on our race cars while they are in the shop so we can put the race tires/wheels in plastic bags to keep them fresh. If you watch one of the Formula 1 races after the race they put thin bicycle looking wheels on to roll the cars back into the trailers.

    No gearbox, no vin number. This is getting more stranger by the hour.
    I guess there are different classes for this quarter mile/ drag stuff or people would just strap a massive engine to a bath tub?

      These cars were/are made specifically to run in the NHRA Stock and Super Stock classes. Chevrolet and Ford also produce cars to run those two classes. These were designed from the very beginning as race cars, not street cars. If you were to go to any NHRA National event or divisional race there will be several running in each of those two classes. These manufacturers did not sell these to the general public, someone had to have a valid competition license before they could attempt to buy one new.

    I can’t believe the inane comments about this car. The comments sound like a bunch of yuppies who think Beemers rule. I’m a Bow Tie guy, and I would love to have this. ANY car person knows what this is. Yes it is history and if you want to drag race, what could be better than a factory race car? Come on Pentastar guys, speak up. And it sold pretty cheap, in my opinion.
