SEMA 2011: Dodge Challenger SRT8 ACR

Industry News

Dodge is building a Challenger SRT8 ACR for debut at the SEMA Show in a weeks' time.

By now everyone has heard of the Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR's impressive run on the Nurburgring, setting a new lap record (7:12:13) in the process. What you may not have heard though was that Chrysler's Mopar Underground team has been quietly building a new ACR for the SEMA Show next month. The Dodge Challenger SRT8 ACR has only been seen so far in rendered form, however it features some intriguing characteristics that imply a possible boosted performance.

From the rendering, we can see some lightweight carbon fiber pieces along with aerodynamic parts sure to help the American muscle car run faster. The Chally ACR features a carbon fiber hood, rear deck lid and spoiler. Painted white with contrasting red brake calipers and mirrors, it sits on a set of big 20-inch wheels finished in black. The interior is also equipped with plenty of carbon fiber, including door panels, armrest bars and roll bars. Katzkin leather-wrapped racing seats made from the aforementioned lightweight material are also included on the Chally ACR.

Dodge has kept some details secret until the Challenger SRT8 ACR debuts next month at SEMA in Las Vegas. Chrysler is also expected to announce whether or not the ACR will enter production or remain as a one-off.
