Dodge Viper ACR has proved again that it is a serious track car, At a recent event at the Laguna Seca race circuit, the 2010 Viper SRT10 ACR broke a previous lap record with a new time of 1:33.944.
Previous record holder at the Laguna Seca was Devon GTX with 1:35.075.
New for the 2010 model year is a shorter fifth gear ratio for improved high-speed acceleration and higher straightaway speeds. The rear wing profile and end plates are redesigned to further optimize the vehicle aerodynamics and improve rear yaw downforce.
Powered by a 8.4-liter, V10 engine with 600 horsepower and 560 lb.-ft. of torque, the Dodge Viper ACR sprints from 0-60 mph in less than 4 seconds, quarter-mile time in the mid 11-second range and 0-100-0 mph in 11 seconds, top speed is 184 mph.
Compared to the regular SRT10 it is more than 80 lbs lighter with optional Hard Core Package, that offers race-ready hardware and competition tuning for optimal on-track performance.
The 2010 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR will make its public debut on Dec. 2, 2009 at the Los Angeles Auto Show. There is also a Laguna Seca Special Edition Viper planned to honor the record-breaking lap.
