2017 Dodge Viper ACR Extreme – Track Attack

May 22nd, 2021

Everyone knows that the Dodge Viper ACR is one of the most capable track cars ever produced. A lesser-known fact is that the 2017 Dodge Viper ACR has more than doubled in value since its inception. That makes it not only fun to drive but also a rock-solid investment (assuming you can keep the shiny side up). Let’s delve a bit deeper into this legendary road course monster as the guys from Throttle House take to the track for some fun.

This Viper ACR is equipped with the Extreme Aerodynamic/Downforce Package. This feature makes the Viper incredibly aerodynamic and adds nearly a ton of downforce to the standard Viper’s capabilities.

Motivating the 2017 Dodge Viper ACR Extreme is a naturally aspirated, all-aluminum, 8.4-liter V10 engine. It is mated to a manual transmission. Working in conjunction, this motor and transmission are capable of generating a gravitational force of approximately 1.5g. That’s about the equivalent of an average human being standing on your chest. It’s quick! The Viper is capable of producing 645hp and 600 lb.-ft. of torque – despite the lack of a power-adder. Car and Driver says the 2017 Dodge Viper ACR Extreme can rocket from 0 to 60 mph in 3.3-seconds and turn the quarter-mile in 11.5-seconds @ 126 mph. Top speed is a computer controlled 177 mph. It weighs 3,400-pounds.

Time to hit the track.
