Our friends at Autoblog got their hands on the new 2016 Viper ACR and became properly acquainted with the new car at the Virginia International Raceway.
In a review posted July 17, you can vicariously experience Dodge’s latest slithery supercar without dropping $121,990. It may be the least civilized car on the market, but with 645 hp and 600 lb-ft, its 8.4-liter V10 takes no prisoners and has no provision for an automatic transmission. Devoid of all creature comforts except air conditioning, the Viper ACR is a tire murderer dressed in carbon fiber. Images of the car were posted to their Facebook page one July 17 and can be found below.
Its top speed was listed at 177 mph when introduced May 8, and when it hits that speed, the downforce created reaches nearly a ton. Of course, the brakes required an intense upgrade to stop that much power – new Brembo Carbon Ceramic Matrix brakes make use of the largest brake pad area ever seen on a Viper.
They are built by hand, so the initial production models will sell for a premium. Take a look at our inventory of Vipers for sale, and stay tuned to Autofluence for more Dodge and Viper news.
