The all-new 2016 Dodge Viper American Club Racer (ACR) becomes the fastest street-legal Viper track car ever built by Chrysler thanks to an 8.4L V10 engine that produces 645 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque—the most torque of any naturally aspirated sports-car engine in the world.
During on-track testing with a 2016 Dodge Viper ACR that featured the available Extreme Aero package, development engineers experienced nearly one ton of downforce at a top speed of 177 mph (285 km/h).
When it comes to brushing off all that speed, the 2016 Dodge Viper ACR can count on new Brembo Carbon Ceramic Matrix brakes for optimum braking performance with unprecedented brake fade resistance. The system uses 390mm (15.4”) two-piece discs with six-piston callipers up front and 360mm (14.2”) two-piece discs with four-piston callipers in the rear.
The race-inspired interior of the 2016 Dodge Viper ACR boasts unique Alcantara suede accents on the instrument panel cluster hood, lower instrument panel, and door armrest panels. A new, ACR-exclusive, Alcantara-wrapped, high-grip steering wheel with colour racing stripe and unique badging sets the ACR apart from other production models. New high-grip seats also carry the Alcantara inserts. Customers can choose between silver or Header Red accent stitching throughout the cockpit.
Pricing for the 2016 Dodge Viper ACR remains unknown. Look for it to go on sale in the third quarter of 2015.
