Chrysler Previews 2011 SEMA Show
Chrysler is offering a preview of its exhibit at next week’s 2011 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas. Two of the stars of the show will be Mopar-modified vehicles from the company's Dodge and Ram brands.
The Dodge Challenger SRT8 ACR was created by Chrysler Group’s Mopar Underground team, with the goal of producing a Challenger image vehicle with some cool ties to modern history. 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. The Challenger ACR is a no-frills homage to the original option-delete cars of the 1960s and 70s.
The Ram 392 Quick Silver began life as a 2011 Ram R/T. A 470 horsepower, 392 HEMI V-8 from the SRT lineup was dropped in and mated to the R/T’s 4.10 gear set and a high-stall converter. For additional performance, the Ram 392 is equipped with a cold-air intake kit and headers featuring an electronic exhaust cutout for maximum power and sound at the track.
Chrysler will have 35 vehicles on display at the SEMA show.
