Could this make it from Colorado to San Francisco in 15 hours? We'd be more than happy to try.
Once again, the people over at Mopar continue to make us wish we suddenly have extra funds in our bank accounts. Having just had its official unveiling at SEMA 2011, the Dodge Challenger ACR is the latest offering to come from Mopar. Some of their other recent fun-filled rides included the Mopar Drag Pak Challenger and the Viper SRT10 ACR which set a Nurburgring track record. Basically, the Challenger ACR is, according to Mopar, a "no-frills homage to the original option-delete cars of the 1960s and 70s."
It's equipped with Mopar parts including a coil-over suspension, front-and rear-strut tower braces, short-throw shifter (of course), front splitter, cat-back exhaust headers and a set of Goodyear F1 Supercar performance tires. Did we mention it was awesome? Also added are carbon fiber door panels, front race bucket seats that even have openings for a racing harness. The rear seat has been removed and replaced by a roll bar and fire extinguisher. An SRT three-spoke flat-bottom steering, gauge cluster, custom bright pedal kit, Mopar Drag Pak center stack, racing seats in Katzkin leather, and a carbon fiber center console round off the interior mods.
The exterior features design cues taken from the Viper SRT10 ACR such as the white paint job, charcoal painted roof, carbon fiber hood, rear deck lid, rear spoiler, a tail lamp surround and even an offset flame red stripe running the length of the car. Equipped with a set of 20-inch alloys, red mirror caps and brake calipers, and ACR badges, this is quite possibly the best thing to come out of Mopar since last year's SEMA show. On top of all of the above, there's still the ever wonderful 6.4-liter V8 with some 470hp. So it's official: Kowalski's new car is finally here.
