Welcome! What we have here is a 2010 Dodge LC22R Challenger Drag Pak car. This concept was first unveiled to the public back in October 2006 at SEMA by a company called Daimler Chrysler. After stringent testing, production setbacks, Chrysler almost going bankrupt and numerous changes; finally 100 of these turnkey drag cars were made and coming hot off the production line. This 2010 Dodge LC22R Challenger Drag Pak Production No. 2010042 is one of only five to cross over the border into Canada.
This retro themed Stone White Challenger is broken back down to the bones, and brought back to the raw power that the Challenger is well known for. So much power in fact that these limited time production Challengers do not come with a street legal title. When it comes to power, the LC22R Challenger comes stocked with uncompromised sheer force. The 6.1L V8 Engine rumbles low like a growl, which comes packed with one nasty punch. The LC22R Challenger was based on the SRT8 version. Yet unlike the SRT8 the LC22R Drag Pak caters to the realistic drive and needs of a Drag Car enthusiast. So much so from including a composite lift off hood with a functional scoop, Viper-style front seating, polycarbonate door windows, a light-weight cooling module with electric fan, manual rack-and-pinion steering, a special cable-operated deck-lid release, special light-weight front-brake assemblies and special cable-operated throttle linkage and pedal assembly.
The LC22R Challenger is a top contender in the small world of turnkey drag cars. With drag racing’s growing popularity mainly in the U.S. The big three domestic automakers brought out their factory-built turnkey ready drag race cars. Those of which include the COPO Camaro, Mopar Dodge LC22R Challenger Drag Pak, and Ford Cobra Jet Mustang. The LC22R Challenger is comparable to its rivals, yet it is undeniably different all on its own. My opinion on the LC22R Challenger may be a bit biased but when you get to experience the raw ride inside and out instead of watching 100’s of YouTube videos, you may feel the exact same way.
