Members of the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) named the Dodge Viper ACR (American Club Racer) as "Performance Car of Texas" at the 2010 Spring Challenge, the organization's annual passenger-car competition, held on May 3 at Texas Motor Speedway.
The event featured more than 50 vehicles from various manufacturers, all vying for a top award from 40 of the TAWA journalists in attendance. Only eight vehicles were honored in this year's list of various categories, including the Viper ACR.
The Viper ACR was chosen as top performer on the 1-mile infield road course against several performance vehicles, after individual impressions and by secret ballot
"The Dodge Viper ACR is the worthy recipient of our first Performance Car of Texas award," said Michael Herzing, President – Texas Auto Writers Association and publisher of LetsTalkWheels.com. He also added that “this award is a real testament to the Dodge Viper's superior level of overall performance."
Introduced in 2008, the Dodge Viper ACR is powered by a 8.4-liter, V-10 engine rated at 600 horsepower and 560 lb.-ft. of torque, with 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.
