Fiat Chrysler Unveils Mopar Dodge Charger Dragster


In Las Vegas, Nevada, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV unmasked a premium drag racing car. This occurred on Tuesday afternoon at the well-known 2014 SEMA Show. The 2015 Mopar Dodge Charger R/T Funny Car provides a modified (and visually appealing) exterior that is backed by quality performance. Pietro Gorlier, Mopar’s President and CEO, mentioned the same tools had to be used to construct the street vehicle for a revolutionized carbon fiber vehicle that has the capability of traveling more than 300 miles per hour.

Gorlier was quoted saying, “The process of designing and building this new race car has been a true collaborative effort between our own engineering team and Don Schumacher Racing, and we are very excited with what we have brought to fruition.” Visit Chapman Dodge Las Vegas and shop for your favorite Dodge vehicle.

The vehicle’s new design is both lighter and stronger than ever before, and the best part is that it doesn’t give up aerodynamic capabilities in order to achieve this. Mark Trostle, lead designer for SRT, Mopar and Motorsports, said that this vehicle was “all about function.” He went on to add that the vehicle also needs to spark aesthetic appeal since customers are going to be able to connect to it while it is on the track. The new dragster has done a good job at replacing the current Dodge Charger R/T Funny Car (which was originally launched back in 2006). The 2006 version also happened to win NHRA Funny Car World Championships in a row (in 2012 with the driver Jack Beckman and in 2011 with the driver Matt Hagan). The vehicle has already been scheduled to make is debut at the 2015 National Hot Rod Association Mello Yellow Drag Racing Series.

Mopar was originally established back in 1937, and since that time have focused their business around distributing more than half-a-million parts and accessories to more than 120 countries all around the world. Mopar Motorsports wasn’t established until the 1950s however, when they partnered with a well -known drag racing pioneer named Don Garlits. This sequence of events eventually led to several speed and performance barriers getting blown away throughout the following decades. It was in 2014 when Mopar celebrated their 50th anniversary, and also introduced their premium GEN III 426 Race HEMI.

While Mopar is a company that remains involved in many different professional motorsports, they continue to spend most of their contributions to amateur racing in the NHRA. This is why they sponsor the HEMI Challenge and Mopar Sportsman Cup each year. Today, Mopar’s premium services and parts cannot be overstated or overlooked. They remain as a top pick for genuine parts and accessories related to FCA brands. Their new Dodge dragster will not only turn a few heads, but it will certainly over exceed expectations and perform in ways that many experts and hobbyists would have never imagined.
