Mopar Introduces High-HP Options

Jan 10, 2011

What’s new with Mopar for 2011? Start with an elephant and a V-10 drag racing package.

The company recently introduced new performance and racing equipment and packages, including the reincarnation of its famed “elephant motor” from the 1960s-an all-aluminum Hemi Gen III crate engine.

The Mopar 426 Aluminum Hemi Gen III Crate engine assembly includes the intake manifold and oil pan and offers 540 hp and 530 foot-pounds of torque.

In addition to the new elephant motor, the 2011 Mopar Challenger V-10 Drag Pak-the company’s first 500-plus-ci V-10 drag-race package car-is new for 2011 as well.

The package, which was recently named to the 2011 “Hagerty Hot List” of collectible cars, is approved for NHRA Stock and Super Stock competition, according to a press release.

Mopar introduced the elephant and Drag Pak, as well as10 new Mopar performance parts, at last month’s PRI Show in Orlando.
