Mopar Underground has unleashed their Dodge Challenger SRT8 ACR on the Las Vegas Convention Center show floor and it’s every bit as awesome as we expected. The Challenger SRT8 392 has been influenced by the Viper SRT10 ACR’s styling while the 392 under the hood packs even more punch with Mopar’s custom headers and cat-back exhaust.
What’s better than a 2011 Dodge Ram R/T? Mopar Underground’s Ram 392 Quick Silver of course. The 392 6.4L HEMI V8-powered Dodge Ram made its presence known in the Mopar booth, tossing out the factory 5.7L V8 for the 470-hp counterpart. Boosting performance is a cold air intake, headers and a cat-back exhaust system courtesy of Mopar.
For all the Dodge Ram enthusiasts out there, Chrysler has something for you at this year’s SEMA Show. Based on a 2011 Ram R/T, the team at Mopar Underground outfitted the Ram with a collection of modifications, enhancing performance while giving the truck some good looks. Powering the Ram 392 Quick Silver is a 392 HEMI V8 from Dodge’s SRT lineup packing 470-hp. The motor was mated to the R/T’s 4.10 gear set with a high-stall converter. Additional performance comes from Mopar’s cold-air intake kit, headers, and cat-back dual exhaust.
Developed by Chrysler Group’s Mopar Underground team, the Dodge Challenger SRT8 ACR is heavily influenced by the success of the Mopar Drag Pak Challenger and more recently, the Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR that reset the production lap time record at the Nurburgring. Based on the Challenger SRT8 392, Mopar Underground focused on paying homage to the original option-delete cars of the 1960s and 70s with the SRT8 ACR that will make its debut at this year’s SEMA Show.
Jeep has released the JK-8 conversion package, based on the current Wrangler Unlimited. The installation of the kit involves removing the doors, roof and bumpers, as well as drilling out spot welds on some body panels. The kit comes with a new shortened roof panel made out of fiberglass, stamped sheet metal reinforcements for the body panels that become the truck bed and a converted sport bar.
The first generation Chrysler 300 was famously described by comedian Katt Williams as “…a [Rolls Royce] Phantom…until a Phantom pull up next to you…”, and that ignominious distinction was no doubt fueled by the frequent addition of an aftermarket Bentley-esque egg-crate grille by some owners.
Mopar’s newest offering will be limited to only 1,000 units and will feature a fine collection of Mopar parts to upgrade the already potent performance of the 2011 Dodge Charger. Equipped with the infamous 5.7-liter HEMI, the Charger will push out 370-hp and 395 ft-lbs, optimized by the Super Trac Pac option. The Super Trac Pac option aids in extracting the maximum amount of torque and engine power thanks to a specially calibrated engine controller.
A public service announcement: the boys at Mopar would like to remind you that the Ford F-150 Raptor isn’t the only drool-worthy uber-truck on the market. The Ram Runner, a build-it-yourself off-road kit for the Dodge Ram 1500, is also available for purchase by overexcited man-children.
