It appears that a track-focused Viper ACR is under development for the new fourth-generation car and could debut sometime next year.

SRT CEO Ralph Gilles has hinted at the Viper ACR a couple of times in the past, and now confirmation has come from a high-level source at Chrysler that the model is in the works.

It’s not a huge surprise that SRT would be planning a Viper ACR, especially as the new car is already racing (in GTS-R trim in the American Le Mans Series). We should expect an ACR to sport bigger brakes, an adjustable suspension, some weight reduction and, of course, some massive aerodynamic upgrades.

A topless roadster version of the new Viper is also in the works.

As for performance, rumor has it that the SRT Viper isn’t allowed to trump the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta in its power-to-weight ratio. So any bump in power from the Viper ACR would have to be approved by the heads at Fiat.
