Dodge is preparing its latest track weapon and took to the SEMA show in Las Vegas to show off the concept.

The ACR Concept takes the Viper’s go fast nature and accentuates it by stripping weight off the car, taking it back to basics. A carbon fiber front splitter, rear wing and satin black 19-inch wheels are the most noticeable changes to this upgraded car. There is also carbon fiber “dive planes,” front-fender heat extractors and differential cooling ducts placed just behind the car’s side windows.

Inside is where the weight savings become more apparent. The ACR Concept forgoes a radio, carpet and sound deadening to help lighten the load, while carbon fiber can also be found throughout the innards of the car.

Power still comes from an 8.4-liter V10 that pumps out 645 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque, sent to the rear wheels. To help control all that jam, the ACR Concept is fitted with massive 15.4-inch carbon ceramic two-piece brake rotors and six piston Brembo brake calipers.
