The Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR (American Club Racer) has made history at yet another storied road course.
Renowned Dodge road racer Kuno Wittmer piloted a street legal 2010 Dodge Viper ACR to a record lap of 1:59.995 at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah, on Monday, April 11, breaking the 2-minute mark for the first time in a production car on the 3.048-mile Outer Course configuration. The Viper ACR shattered the previous production car lap record of 2:03.86, held by Jan Magnussen in a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 by close to 4 full seconds.
Dodge Viper ACR
The Dodge Viper ACR remains the ultimate purpose-built, street-legal track car since its introduction in 2008.
Powered by the venerable 8.4-liter, V-10 engine with 600 horsepower and 560 lb.-ft. of torque, the Dodge Viper ACR continues to offer extreme performance, including 0-60 mph acceleration in less than 4 seconds, quarter-mile time in the mid 11-second range and 0-100-0 mph in 11 seconds flat.
The four-wheel independent suspension features high-performance aluminum control arms and knuckles, KW suspension with two-way adjustable competition coil-over shock absorbers with remote reservoirs.
The aerodynamic package features a carbon fiber "fanged" splitter in front and adjustable carbon-fiber wing with seven-position stanchions that allow up to an amazing 1,000 lbs. of downforce at 150 mph. Lightweight wheels, two-piece slotted StopTech brake rotors and Michelin PS Cup tires round out the ACR package.
For the 2010 model year, the Dodge Viper ACR received a shorter fifth gear ratio (changing from 0.74 to 0.80) for improved high-speed acceleration and higher straightaway speeds. A new short-throw shifter also came in 2010 models for enhanced driver experience and better performance. The rear wing profile and end plates were also redesigned to further optimize the vehicle aerodynamics and improve rear yaw downforce. These changes resulted in an increase in top speed of 4 mph (to 184 mph).
Dodge Viper Lap Record at Nürburgring : 7'12"13 (Motorsport)
Une rumeur annonçait que la Dodge Viper ACR avait battu le record de la
Lexus LFA (7'14"64) sur la Nordschleife en 7'12"13. Aujourd'hui, la firme
américaine confirme, vidéo à la clé.
Pour rappel, la Viper ACR est une véritable voiture de course échappée
des circuits avec son V10 de 612ch et 77,3 mk de couple, ses 1 533 kg et
surtout ses suspensions et son aileron réglable. A l'occasion de ce
record, l'équipe de SRT a très légèrement modifié la sportive
utilisée. Le cinquième rapport a été raccourci (0,80 au lieu de 0 74)
tandis que l'aileron a été redessiné pour améliorer l'aérodynamique.
Le pilote de GT Dominik Farnbacher était aux commandes de la Viper ACR qui
a réalisé le record le 14 septembre dernier. Quant à Ralph Gilles,
président de SRT et de la division sport auto du groupe Chrysler, il s'est
dit extrêmement fier de ce temps.
La Viper ACR devient ainsi la quatrième auto la plus rapide sur le
Nürburgring, juste derrière l'impressionnante Gumpert Apollo Sport
(7'11"57). Le meilleur chrono est toujours la propriété de la barquette
anglaise Radical SR8 LM avec 6'48.
La bagarre continue...

Jan Magnussen Attacks the Nurburgring in a Corvette ZR1. Unfortuantely,
this was a day that the 'ring was open to the public and traffic slowed
down the 638 hp Corvette several times. Still, a great way to see how a
professional race car driver attacks one of the most difficult road courses
in the world.
