Dodge built 25 units of the turn-key, non-street legal race car and many will be making their on-track debuts next month.
"The Dodge Viper ACR-X is a dream come true for road-racing enthusiasts who are looking for outstanding performance and safety," Gilles, President and CEO, Dodge Brand, said in a release."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."
