With dramatic styling, 600 (450 kW) horsepower, 560 lb.-ft. (760 N•m) of torque from its 8.4-liter (510-cu. in.) V-10 engine, Dodge Viper SRT10 continues to set benchmarks for an American sports car by offering extreme performance including 0-60 mph in less than 4 seconds, quarter-mile time in the mid 11-second range and 0-100-0 mph in
11-seconds flat.

The 2009 Dodge Viper SRT’s V-10 channels its power through a ZF Sachs twin-disc clutch that reduces rotating inertia by 18 percent, reduces clutch-pedal effort and improves engagement feel. Transferring power to the rear wheels is a heavy-duty six-speed manual transmission.

Stopping power is another carefully developed part of the Viper SRT10 equation, with 14-inch brake rotors gripped by Brembo 44/40 dual-opposing piston calipers in the front and Brembo 42/38 dual-opposing calipers in the rear. This system results in a world-class braking performance of 60-0 mph in less than 100 feet.

2010 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR-X

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

Combining the best performance attributes of the record-setting, street-legal Dodge Viper American Club Racer (ACR) and the safety equipment of championship-winning Dodge Viper Competition Coupe, the Viper ACR-X is powered by the SRT-developed 8.4-liter V-10 engine, equipped with factory headers and a low-restriction exhaust system, that produces 640 horsepower (40 more than the production model) and 605 lb.-ft. of torque (45 more than the production model).

The suspension also is tuned and upgraded specifically for on-track usage with unique springs, two-way adjustable shocks and adjustable sway bar links.

Curb weight is a full 160 pounds lighter (compared with the standard-production Viper) to take on even the most challenging road course. Additional aerodynamic upgrades including quad-dive planes and underbody ducts improve downforce, while enhancing stability and significantly improving grip in high-speed cornering.

Dodge built 25 units of the turn-key, non-street legal race car. All 25 have been purchased exclusively through Viper Race Headquarters and many will be making their on-track debuts in July 2010 as part of the newly formed Dodge Viper Cup series.

“The Dodge Viper ACR-X is a dream come true for road-racing enthusiasts who are looking for outstanding performance and safety,” said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO, Dodge Brand. “This ACR-X is designed and built for drivers who demand serious speed and want to compete in our ultimate American sports car.”

Similar to the Dodge Viper Competition Coupe, the Viper ACR-X contains factory-installed safety equipment such as a factory-designed roll cage, fire suppression system, fuel cell and race seat. Additional racing components including a transmission cooler, rear differential cooling system, unique front rotors with larger surface area and improved brake cooling via scoops in the front fascia are added to meet the significant durability and reliability requirements for on-track competition.

“We’re continuing to work toward making this final year of production for the current-generation Dodge Viper in 2010 the most exciting year for Viper and Viper Nation alike,” added Gilles. “The Viper ACR-X and the launch of the Dodge Viper Cup series will continue the momentum for years to come.”

Aside from his day-to-day duties as Dodge President and CEO, Gilles played a role in the on-track development of the Viper ACR-X.

"The Dodge Viper ACR-X is simply incredible,” said Gilles. “Owners are going to be blown away by the power and acceleration, and even more surprised at how the ACR-X navigates even the most challenging road courses and how friendly it is to drive at the limit. This is a great package for someone coming out of grassroots racing with a desire to step up to GT level competition.”

Viper Racing Heritage
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. It also posted an amazing overall win at the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona in 2000 – the first for a production-based American car.

Viper finished 1-2 at The 24 Hours of LeMans in GTS class in three consecutive years: 1998 – 2000 and also captured GTS class, manufacturer’s and driver’s championships in the American LeMans Series in 1999 and 2000.

The Dodge Viper Competition Coupe, introduced in 2003, delivered the next chapter of that history with its coupe-shaped carbon/Kevlar body and a track-ready chassis, based on the Dodge Viper SRT10. The Viper Competition Coupe has continued the on-track prowess by capturing the 2004 SCCA Speed World Challenge GT title, championships in Formula D Drifting series in 2004 and 2006 and the British GT Championship in 2007 and 2008.
