Not one to be left out of the 2011 SEMA Auto Show extravaganza, Chrysler, together with its resident tuning house, Mopar Underground came with a bevy of vehicles to Las Vegas.

One of their offerings is the Dodge Challenger SRT8 ACR, a track focused, yet street-legal machine that drew its inspiration from both the Challenger SRT8 392 and the Viper SRT10 ACR. Coming with plenty of aesthetic and performance upgrades, the SRT8 ACR was no doubt one of the cars to steal the show in SEMA.

On the outside, the SR8 ACR was given a white body that comes with a charcoal painted roof and a flame red stripe running the length of the car, a design that pays homage to its departed Viper SR10 ACR counterpart. The paint finish is then complimented by a carbon fiber hood, a rear deck lid, a rear spoiler and tail lamp surrounds, red painted mirror caps, a red "ACR" fender badge, and a set of 20" black five-spoke alloy wheels with matching brake calipers.

Inside, Mopar continued the modifications on the Dodge muscle car by taking out the rear seat bench and replacing it with a roll bar and a fire extinguisher. To make the car lighter, Mopar added carbon fiber door panels to go with a new pair of bucket sport seats with openings for a racing harness, an SRT three-spoke flat-bottom steering wheel, an SRT gauge cluster, a custom bright pedal kit, Mopar Drag Pack center stack, and a carbon fiber center console finish.

On top of all of that, Mopar also gave the SRT8 ACR some performance enhancements in the form of a new coil-over suspension, front-and rear-strut tower braces, short-throw shifter, front splitter, cat-back exhaust, and custom exhaust headers.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

Dodge Challenger is not the car that will catch my attention. It looks classy but this is not exactly my type. Even the wheels have the similar looks with other cars.

The engine output of this Dodge Challenger is already quite impressive but its competitor had a more powerful engine than what it had. Anyway, I can’t see anything wrong with its exterior style.

Unlike you guys, I’m not so impressed with the design that this vehicle had, although I love the fact that it is a muscled car. I just really don’t like its paint finish. It didn’t look good at it.

Dodge Challenger SRT8 is truly one of the most attractive muscled cars today, and its engine output is really so impressive for this one. However, I wonder if it also had a nice interior?

Well, I’m glad that it can offer now plenty of aesthetic and performance upgrades, and I noticed that the new engine specification of it, is more impressive than to their previous model.

It doesn’t matter if it almost looks like Chevrolet Camaro, because the two have their own appeal and amazing features. Furthermore, this Dodge Challenger is really one of the best muscled cars today.

For some reason, I must say that I don’t like this Dodge Challenger. Maybe, I have this feeling that they were trying so hard to copy the features of a Chevrolet Camaro, but anyway, I’m kind of impressed with its engine.

Well, I just hope that it’s V8 engine that can deliver 470 horsepower is only enough for this one to have a better performance. Furthermore, I can say that it is already very striking in its design.

It looks so amazing on its styling in spite of having a simple design, but the color combination is really looking great on this Dodge Challenger, even the wheels that it had, only adds more appeal to it.

A HEMI V8 engine that can deliver 470 horsepower is kind of impressive, but if I’m not mistaken, it is a race car right? Well, if it is, I think they should upgrade it more, so that you can already line up this one of those super cars.

The Dodge Challenger is absolutely very striking on its platform and other detailing even the engine of it, is I think quite good enough for this kind of car, but I’m quite curious on its interior features.
