FCA working on Dodge Challenger ACR?
The special edition is expected to be lighter with more downforce.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is reportedly developing a track-focused Dodge Challenger that will borrow the Viper's ACR designation.
Following the same format introduced with the Challenger ACR concept (pictured) that debuted in 2011 but never entered production, the upcoming variant is said to focus on light weight and increased downforce to help slash lap times, according to Mopar Insiders.
The ACR will presumably be based on the SRT Hellcat Widebody, which benefits from wider wheels all around. The standard configuration will likely have just a single seat, stripping down the interior to reduce heft.
The Challenger ACR is said to be arriving within the next two model years, potentially invigorating sales as the aging platform finally nears the end of its life cycle.
