Everyone expects that once the all-new SRT Viper arrives on the market that more powerful versions will follow. SRT CEO, Ralph Gilles, already hinted that a Viper ACR version could arrive in the near future, but this announcement is not a huge surprise.

Unfortunately, we have no idea on what the ACR variant will bring to the already powerful SRT Viper, but we can take a few pointers from the previous ACR model. It’s assumed that SRT will offer a more aggressive exterior look, bigger brakes, adjustable dampers and a set of low-weight wheels with ultra-high-performance tires.

The most impressive update will be made under the hood. The engine will remain the same 8.4-liter all-aluminum V-10 engine found in the base SRT Viper, but tricked to deliver much more than the standard Viper. Considering that the previous Viper ACR offered an extra 100 horsepower over the standard version, you shouldn’t be too surprised to see the ACR model with output close to 750 horsepower.

The previous-generation Dodge Viper ACR impressed us with great results like a Nurburgring lap time of 7:12, so we expect the same from the upcoming SRT Viper ACR. We are pretty sure SRT engineers will not disappoint us.

Expect the new SRT Viper ACR to arrive sometime in 2014.

I don’t think it’ll make much more if any more power over the standard car because yes the acr had 600 horses over the 500 from the previous year but 600 horses became the normal output for all viper trims, Acr or not. I do hope SRT intends on offering carbon ceramic brakes though they should have been available on the new one as an option at the least.

The aggressive exterior look did not impress me at all. But I like the features like bigger brakes, adjustable dampers and a set of low-weight wheels with ultra-high-performance tires. These features could prove that there are impressive updates included in the new version.
