Dodge has just unveiled its newest turn-key race car, the Viper SRT10 ACR-X.

Based on the Viper ACR, the ACR-X is a track-only race car designed to compete in the Viper Racing League, the Sports Car Club of America, and the National Auto Sport Association.

Awesome power is delivered by a 8.4-litre V10 engine that produces 640 horsepower (40 hp more than the standard model). Other performance enhancements include a specially-tuned sports suspension, a 65kg weight reduction (compared to the production Viper), improved aerodynamics (for increased downforce), and a complete safety package (with a roll cage, fuel cell and race seat).

During testing at the Laguna Seca racetrack, the Viper ACR-X averaged a time of 1:31.00. The street-legal Viper ACR set the production car lap record recently at the same track with a time of 1:33.944.

According to Dodge CEO, Ralph Gilles, “The Dodge Viper ACR-X takes the performance attributes of Viper to an even higher level for a wide range of drivers starting with the grassroots racer all the way up to the professional. This project is a result of many years of performance engineering expertise from our SRT team, combined with the passion and dedication of Viper Nation, to keep the Viper racing tradition going strong on tracks around the country and the world.”

Set to go into production this spring, the Viper ACR-X will be priced from around $110,000 USD.
