Arrow NEWS: Chevrolet to take on Mustang Cobra Jet & Challenger DragPak W/ race-only Camaro

FRONT PAGE NEWS

Filed under: Motorsports, Chevrolet, Racing

Chevrolet Camaro SS - Click above for high-res image gallery

In recent years, Ford and Dodge have produced limited-edition, drag-race-only models built to compete in various NHRA classes. Both automakers have amped up their programs for 2011, with Ford releasing the revised Mustang Cobra Jet and Dodge unveiling its V10-powered Challenger Drag Pak at SEMA last November.

Will Chevrolet join the party? While General Motors hasn't hinted that it will, its competition at Ford Racing appears to know otherwise. In an interview regarding the Cobra Jet, Ford Racing's drag racing competition manager, Jesse Kershaw, hinted at a new Camaro built for drag racing:
"Some people revel in competition and some people don't like the competition, but what is really interesting is that we're seeing a resurgence of the muscle car wars from the late '60s. So we see where the competition like Dodge has produced a Challenger to compete with us, and now they've had to step up their ante with a V10 version. We know that General Motors is on track to release a Camaro version. I think that the NHRA fans as well as the racers themselves are very excited to get out there and have this new era of horsepower war."

Both Ford and Dodge unveiled their purpose-built drag racers at SEMA, so we'll have our eyes and ears open for any potential news from GM come November.

Aren't the stripped drag spec cars more money than the stock versions?

That is what sponsors are for. A V-10 with a 2 speed is just sick.

The completely sold out 2012 Cobra Jet bases at $93K and tops at $103,000 fully optioned. 5.4NA base , then eaton, whipple 4.0 as the most powerful option( sub 9 sec car) . Ive seen more than a few comments that it is cheaper to buy the Cobra jet, than build its equal . Ford doesnt have a prob selling out everyone they build.

Hard to say...even the drag version is based on half-speculation.
