Buliding up a Dodge Viper ACR-X (+video)

Chrysler has just released a new video that shows how it transforms a stock Dodge Viper ACR into the big-balls track-only ACR-X model. The work is handled in house at the same facility in Detroit that builds the Viper Competition Coupe race cars, but the production process differs markedly. The Viper Competition Coupe is built entirely from the ground up at the preparation shop while the ACR-X model is assembled and then retrofitted with a variety of race gear. This process allows the ACR-X to be built at about half the cost of the Competition Coupe.

Included in the special ACR-X fit-out is a roll-cage, brake cooling ducts, competition fuel cell, extra dive planes, fire suppression system and bigger brakes. The ACR-X gets the same racing seat used in the Competition Coupe, available in two sizes to best fit the driver.

Check out the video of the production process below, and see a finished example in the image gallery.
