The new 2016 Dodge Viper ACR is the fastest street-legal track car, Dodge has manufactured with some pretty powerful specs that wont be for the faint of heart.
This car produces an enormous amount of power from its massive hand-built 8.4 liter V10 normally aspirated engine, which can crank out a 645 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft of torque.
Looks like the company has tried to refine the new Dodge Viper with a renewed focus on aerodynamics for this year.
With this ACR Extreme Aero Package, the Viper can now deliver close to 1 ton of peak downforce when blazing at its 177 mph top speed.
The Aero Package uses a 1,876 mm wide, adjustable dual-element rear wing, rear carbon fiber diffuser, and a detachable extension for the front splitter and its four dive planes.
Not only is this vehicle more aerodynamically stable, the engineers have gone to lengths to cut its weight down by using lightweight carpets, seats, car audio and Brembo Carbon Ceramic Matrix brakes
With its 50/50 balanced weight distribution, and race-tuned suspension which has a 10-setting, double-adjustable, coil-over Bilstein racing shocks, a driver can slice through corners achieving 1.5 g’s during high-speed turns.
Helping the car to meet 1.5 g, Dodge used the Kumho Ecsta V720 tires that where purpose-built for the Viper ACR. 295/25/19 in the front and 355/25/19 at the rear.
Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO stated:
Our goal is to arm our enthusiasts with the ultimate Viper track car to dominate road courses around the world
Dodge is also featuring a “1 of 1” customization program with the ACR, that will give buyers a long list of customization options to tailor the car to specific needs, some of which includes:
- 8,000 exterior color options
- 24,000 custom stripe colors

Buyers will be able to get their hands on this hand-built race-car when it goes on sale sometime between July and September of 2015.
