The Dodge Viper ACR set another track record. Dodge Motorsports brought a 2010 Viper ACR to Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah. The car was driven by Kuno Wittmer who smashed the lap record by nearly four seconds. The previous record was set by Jan Magnussen in a Corvette ZR1 who drove the track in 2:03.86, but Witmmer and his Viper ACR managed to do it in just 1:59.995.

The isn’t the first time the Viper ACR has broken a track record for a production car. Back in August 2008, a Viper ACR drove around the famous Nürburgring in 7:22.1 and one year later the same car set a new record in Laguna Seca with a time of 1:33.92.

The Viper ACR is powered by a 8.4 liter V10 engine with 600 horsepower and 785Nm (560lb-ft) of torque. This enables the car to do the 0-100km/h acceleration in less than four seconds while the top speed is 296km/h.

  1. Look at all the butt-hurt Vette people….want to make it truly even? Put a supercharger on the ACR. @kris_vd, the ACR does not have slicks, they are street-legal tires. @No Murci – racing transmission? It the same tranny as in all Vipers! The ONLY modification to the car was 6pt harnesses and the removal of center caps. To the author – it was a 2009 Viper ACR, not even the latest model!

  2. Street legal semi-slicks to be exact. The difference between them and normal tyres is huge. And don’t forget the aero packet. And I’m not Vette lover. I think all american cars are retarded ‘couse they use technologies from 100 years ago. But common sense tells me that with the same tyres the Vette will beat the Viper. They are about the same weight, but the Corvette has 40 more bhp and 60 more Nm. Maybe it’ll need the aero packet that Chevy introduced with Corvette Z06X Track Car Concept just to be even right ;)
