Viper SRT10 ACR-X

Dodge revealed today its special-edition model of the 2010 Viper SRT10 lineup. The new model is called the Dodge Viper SRT`0 ACR-X and it is a turn-key, non-street legal race car that is planned to have the public debut in the summer of 2010. This project is the result of many years of performance engineering expertise coming from the SRT team, combined with the passion and dedication of Viper Nation to keep the Viper racing tradition going strong on tracks around the country and the world. The new model is powered by the SRT-developed 8.4-liter V10 engine capable of developing 640 horsepower. The suspension was tuned and upgraded as well. The model features factory-installed safety equipment such as a factory-designed roll cage, fuel cell and race seat. The new ACR-X is designed to compete in the Viper Racing League, Sports Car Club of America and National Auto Sport Association events. The suggested retail price of the manufacturer for the new concept was established for $110.000. It will make its on-track debut in July 2010 in a newly developed spec series called the Dodge Viper Cup, which will be sanctioned by the existing Viper Racing League. The Dodge Viper has enjoyed a successful racing heritage that began in 1996 with the original Viper racing entry, the GTS-R, which earned five international GT championships and the 1997-1999 FIA GT championships. The Viper Racing League is one race series within the group of three sanctioned by Viper Days. Last year, the carmaker introduced the 2009 Dodge Journey and the 2009 Dodge Challenger, a modern-day American muscle car. The 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan continues to set the mark in the minivan segment with unsurpassed fuel economy. Dodge Caliber was the highest sales volume vehicle for the company outside North America in 2008.
