THE MOTORCAR OFFERED
In 2008, Dodge added quite possibly one of the most capable track cars ever to be offered to the public to the Viper lineup. Known as he ACR (American Club Racer,) this Viper was fitted with a plethora of performance extras geared towards making the American supercar a true track rat. Beginning with the exterior, a massive rear wing and aggressive front splitter, both constructed out of carbon fiber, were fixed upon the body to force the car onto the track surface with a generous amount of downforce. The suspension would receive a fully adjustable system from KW, complete with a front roll stabilizer bar, to help fine tune for each track the owner decides to visit. Lightweight Sidewinder wheels were wrapped in ultra-sticky Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires. All of this allowed a seriously impressive 1.08 lateral G's to be held on the skid pad. Furthermore, the already spartan interior would lose a number of creature comforts in order to shed performance threating weight. If the owner desired even further levels of discomfort in exchange for speed, they could specify the Hardcore package, like the one offered here, that deleted the radio, speakers, under hood silencer, trunk carpet and tire inflator for an additional 40lbs of weight savings over the standard ACR. Most impressively, the ACR would go on to smash several production model track records at renowned race tracks across the globe such as the Nürburgring and California's Laguna Seca.
This 2009 model was sold out of a dealership in Sioux City, Iowa on October 22, 2009. The performance coupe was finished with a striking Viper Bright Orange with Black Stripe exterior making it more than easy to spot in any parking lot. The vehicle staying in the hands of its first owner until 2013, when it was sold to a collector in Illinois. Well taken care of and rarely used, just over 800 miles appear on the dashboard.
Complete a high-performance driving school prior to operating this vehicle states the owner's manual for this formidable sports car. Not for the faint of heart, this Viper is guaranteed to thrill.
