2010 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR-X ready to make its on-track debut

The 2010 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR-X is “the” ultimate special-edition model of America's ultimate sports car.

The Viper ACR-X is powered by the same SRT developed 8.4 Liter V10 as the standard super car. A set of factory tuned headers and a less restrictive exhaust system give the ACR-X 640 horsepower (40 more than the production model) and 605 lb.-ft. of torque (45 more than the production model).

The suspension is also upgraded and tuned solely for the track, optimizing its performance on the toughest road courses. Additional aerodynamic upgrades improve downforce, help stability and improve grip in high-speed corners.

The Viper ACR-X, similar to the Viper Competition Coupe, boasts safety features including a factory-designed roll cage, fire suppression system, fuel cell, and race seat. In order to meet the significant durability and reliability requirements for on-track competition, transmission cooler, rear differential cooling system, unique front rotors with larger surface area and improved brake cooling via scoops in the front fascia are also added.

"The Dodge Viper ACR-X is simply incredible," said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO, Dodge Brand. "Owners are going to be blown away by the power and acceleration."

The Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR-X, priced at $110,000, will make its on-track debut on July 9-10, 2010, in the Dodge Viper Cup.
