Dodge Viper ACR Concept unveiled ahead of 2014 SEMA Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 25, 2014

Chrysler will debut at the 2014 SEMA Show the Dodge Viper ACR Concept, a track-focused version of the Viper that previews a new model in its lineup. The new vehicle looks ready to hit the track and comes with carbon fiber dive planes on the front fascia, hood heat extractors as well as sating black lightweight 19-inch front and rear wheels.

Behind the wheels there are 15.4 inch Carbon Ceramic two-piece rotors fitted with Brembo six-piston calibers. Thanks to carbon fiber brake duct openings in the front fascia, the brakes are kept at an optimal temperature level.

At the rear, we find a big rear wing with accented stanchion and end cap. Just like the previous model, the new Viper ACR Concept gets the same ACR-style white paint highlighted by a gloss black center stripe and Adrenaline Red stripe that flows from tip to tail.

The interior was stripped down to save weight and the manufacturer removed the radio amplifier, speakers, carpet and NVH treatments, but carbon fiber was used to replace every bezel.

The steering wheel is wrapped in Alcantara while a Header Red stripe adorns the 12 o’clock position. Moreover, Alcantara was also used on the shifter and seats.

Dodge Viper ACR Concept

It's difficult, but yes, you can improve the ultimate hand-built American exotic supercar. For a blueprint, look no further than the Dodge Viper ACR Concept.

Ready to strike at the track, the Dodge Viper ACR Concept sports an aggressive carbon fiber front splitter and a competition rear wing anchored to the Snake's steel skin by sculpted aluminum stanchions. Many development hours in the wind tunnel achieved balance between the wing and stanchions, as well as how these elements work in conjunction with the front splitter to maximize downforce. Carbon fiber dive planes on the front fascia and hood heat extractors flanking the front fenders pour on even more aero downforce and aggressive styling cues. All of these lightweight carbon fiber elements work in unison to strike the perfect balance of maximum downforce for tight cornering and high speed maneuvers on the track.

The Dodge Viper ACR Concept races on satin black lightweight 19-inch front and rear wheels, with massive 15.4-inch Carbon Ceramic two-piece rotors with Brembo six-piston brakes. Brakes are kept to optimal temperature levels through carbon fiber brake duct openings in the front fascia. Differential cooler ducts rearward of the side windows supply fresh cool air to the differential for optimal performance. The signature ACR-style white paint is highlighted by a gloss black center stripe, accompanied by an offset Adrenaline Red stripe that flows from tip to tail, encompassing the competition spoiler with accented stanchion and end cap. The iconic heritage ACR side sill badge and Stryker front nose badge signify that this Viper is certainly a force to be recognized.

The race-inspired interior of the Dodge Viper ACR concept puts an emphasis on weight reduction for superior performance with unique styling cues that express its racing thoroughbred pedigree. Only the bare necessities remain as radio amplifier, speakers, carpet and NVH treatments have been removed to take advantage of every ounce. Carbon fiber virtually fills the cabin as every possible bezel has been replaced with this space-age lightweight material. Alcantara suede-wrapped steering wheel, shifter and seats provide ample grip to fully exercise its modified race suspension with razor sharp agility through the most demanding turns. A Header Red stripe that adorns the 12 o'clock position of the steering wheel provides an emotional connection to the exterior through the Adrenaline Red body stripe. Header Red accents carry over from the unique "Stryker" steering wheel badge to the iconic heritage "ACR" instrument panel badge with carbon fiber inlay, and are harmoniously joined by full interior accent stitching.
