SEMA 2011: Dodge Challenger ACR

El equipo de Mopar, para los que no lo sepan la división de alto rendimiento del grupo Chrysler, han traído al SEMA 2011 nada mas ni menos que un Dodge Challenger ACR, algunos de vosotros de buén seguro que ya os sonará la denominación ACR, pues es la que firma las versiones mas radicales del Viper.

Al Challenger ACR le han sustituído varios paneles de la carrocería por otros mas ligeros de fibra de carbono, también se ha reducido el peso en el interior del coche, en adición se le han añadido diversos componentes del catálogo Mopar para mejorar su rendimiento, entre ellos podemos encontrar suspensiones coilover, barras de torretas, cambio de marchas de accionamiento rápido, nuevo escape, etc.

El V8 de 6.4 litros de cilindrada SRT8 ofrecerá algo mas que los 470 CV de serie, pero tampoco esperes un aumento espectacular de esta, a continuación os dejo la nota de prensa (en inglés).

Influenced by the success of the Mopar Drag Pak Challenger and more recently, the Dodge Viper SRT10® ACR resetting the production car lap record at the Nürburgring Nordschleife track in Germany, Mopar Underground created the Dodge Challenger ACR based on the stellar Challenger SRT8 392. Some of Dodge’s and SRT’s best handling vehicles of all-time come with the ACR acronym attached to them, and the Challenger ACR is no different. The Challenger ACR is a no-frills homage to the original option-delete cars of the 1960s and 70s. Equipped with Mopar parts, such as a coil-over suspension, front-and rear-strut tower braces, short-throw shifter, front splitter, cat-back exhaust, custom exhaust headers and a set of Goodyear F1 Supercar performance tires, the Challenger ACR is an animal that has as much bark as its cornering bite. Performance enhancements in the interior include carbon fiber door panels, front race bucket seats with openings for a racing harness and the rear seat is removed and replaced by a roll bar and fire extinguisher. An SRT three-spoke flat-bottom steering wheel, SRT gauge cluster, custom bright pedal kit, Mopar Drag Pack center stack and a carbon fiber center console finish off the interior modifications. The exterior has design cues similar to those found on the Viper SRT10 ACR, including a white body, charcoal painted roof, carbon fiber hood, rear deck lid, rear spoiler and tail lamp surround and an offset flame red stripe that runs the length of the car. Red painted mirror caps and brake calipers, unique black painted five-spoke 20-inch alloy wheels and red «ACR» fender badging finish off the exterior design details. The white and red theme carries over to the interior with white accents on the carbon fiber door panels, red armrest bars with white foam padding, red door latch release tethers, red painted roll bars and red accents on the carbon fiber racing seats covered in black Katzkin leather.
