We deemed the Ford "the no-excuses pony"; the Dodge "a profligate performer" but "not the quickest or best handling"; and the Chevy "a hammer" that's "not as much fun to drive as it should be.

“I always thought that engine was tuned to the horsepower number,” says McCarthy, meaning that to reach the 425-hp benchmark engineers tuned the engine for revs to the detriment of usable torque.

Dodge Challenger SRT8 ACR
Influenced by the success of the Mopar Drag Pak Challenger and more recently, the Dodge Viper SRT10® ACR resetting the production car lap record at the Nürburgring Nordschleife track in Germany, Mopar Underground created the Dodge Challenger ACR based on the stellar Challenger SRT8 392.
Equipped with Mopar parts, such as a coil-over suspension, front-and rear-strut tower braces, short-throw shifter, front splitter, cat-back exhaust, custom exhaust headers and a set of Goodyear F1 Supercar performance tires, the Challenger ACR is an animal that has as much bark as its cornering bite.
