DODGE CHALLENGER R/T SCATPACK 1320 IS READY FOR DRAG ACTION | As customer deliveries are about to commence, Dodge has announced that its 2019 Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 has been approved to race in NHRA Stock and Super Stock competitions for the upcoming season. Powered by the 392 Hemi V8 with 485 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque, the car’s name comes from the quarter-mile distance of 1,320 feet.
Dodge claims the Scat Pack 1320 is the fastest naturally aspirated, street-legal muscle car on sale today with a quarter-mile time of 11.70 seconds at 115 mph. That’s 0.3 seconds less than standard Scat Pack’s time. The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, to compare, is powered by the supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat V8. NHRA rules dictate that the Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 must feature a class weight break of 8.72 and carry a minimum weight of 3,400 pounds.
The Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320, not at all surprisingly, borrows many elements from the Demon and Hellcat Redeye, such as the Demon’s adaptive dampers, line lock, Transbrake, and Torque Reserve. The standard set of wheels, Nexen SUR4G Drag Spec 275/40R20s, were designed specifically for the car and are street-legal.
The sole gearbox will be the eight-speed automatic transmission.
The added price for all of this awesomeness is $3,995 on top of the 2019 Challenger R/T Scat Pack’s MSRP of $38,995. The total price, including a mandatory slushbox and destination, comes to $45,980.
