2010 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR-X Exposed

Viper SRT10 ACR-X

A Viper so lethal, it can’t be street legal.

The new non-street legal Viper SRT10 ACR-X, is a raw and powerful machine based on the record breaking Viper ACR. The mighty 8.4-liter V-10 receives an increase of 40 horsepower over the production Viper through the use of factory headers, a less restrictive exhaust system, and an upgraded ECU, to create a heinous 640 horsepower.

Dodge’s Street and Racing Technology (SRT) team has also added a number of upgrades found in the famous Viper Competition Coupe to the ACR-X. Safety features such as a roll cage, fuel cell, race seat, and Momo steering wheel provide increased performance and protect the driver. The ACR-X is also more agile, benefiting from an upgraded suspension and a weight reduction of 160 lbs. Downforce has been increased to an astonishing 1,100 lbs. at 150 mph with the use of new aerodynamic components. A set of race slicks fitted to forged lightweight Sidewinder wheels, measuring 18 x 10 inches at the front and 19 x 13 inches at the rear.

While testing the Viper SRT10 ACR-X at Laguna Seca raceway, professional driver Kuno Wittmer was able to achieve lap times of just 1:31.00, more than three seconds faster than the Viper ACR – the fastest production car around Laguna Seca. “After a short warm up, I was running lap times as quick as exotic GT race cars. I was blown away by the power and acceleration, and even more surprised at how the ACR-X navigated the challenging Laguna Seca corners and how friendly it was to drive at the limit,” expressed Wittmer. “All aspects of the car work together perfectly to plant all that horsepower and torque without issue. This will be a great package for someone coming out of grassroots racing with a desire to step-up to GT level competition. Dodge nailed it with this one!”

Aimed at the racing enthusiast, the ACR-X designed for competition in the Viper Racing League, SCCA, and NASA events. The Viper SRT10 ACR-X will make its racing debut in July 2010 in the Dodge Viper Cup series. Sponsored by Dodge Motorsports and Mopar, more than $200,000 will be paid out to drivers during the series of ten races.

Production for the Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR-X is set for early spring of 2010, and will be priced at approximately $110,000.
