Back in 2011, during the 2011 SEMA Auto Show extravaganza, Chrysler, including its resident tuning house Mopar Underground came with a bevy of cars to Las Vegas.
One of their attractions revealed at the Auto Show was the 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 ACR, a track focused model, yet street-legal machine that has drawn its inspiration from both the Challenger SRT8 392 and the Viper SRT10 ACR.
And after it was made with plenty of aesthetic and performance upgrades, there is no doubt that the SRT8 ACR was one of the cars that steal the show in SEMA.
On the outside…
…the SRT8 ACR has a white body that comes with a charcoal painted roof and a flame red stripe running the length of the car. This design pays homage to its departed Viper SR10 ACR counterpart.
The paint finish is then complimented by a carbon fiber hood, a rear spoiler and tail lamp surrounds, a rear deck lid, red painted mirror caps, a set of 20″ black five-spoke alloy wheels with matching brake calipers, and a red “ACR” fender badge.
There were also modifications inside the Challenger
Mopar continued the customizations on this muscle by taking out the rear seat bench and replacing it with a roll bar and a fire extinguisher.
Mopar also had a task to make the car lighter, so they added carbon fiber door panels to go with a new pair of bucket sport seats with openings for a racing harness, an SRT gauge cluster, an SRT three-spoke flat-bottom steering wheel, a custom bright pedal kit, Mopar Drag Pack center stack, and a carbon fiber center console finish.
In addition to all of that:
Mopar gave the SRT8 ACR some performance enhancements in the form of a new coil-over suspension, short-throw shifter, front splitter, front-and rear-strut tower braces, cat-back exhaust, and custom exhaust headers.
