Dodge Viper ACR Sets Nurburgring Record with 7:12 Laptime
text size: A- A+
Before we start the story, we have to mention that we’re talking about cars coming from mainstream automakers, not companies that build vehicles just with the purpose of tearing racetracks apart.
SRT took two new 2010MY Viper ACRs (this is the last year of production), asked for logistics support from Mintgen Motorsport, a racing specialist located in the proximity of the Nurburgring.
No video has been released yet, but we’re waiting for SRT to send the footage and we’ll be back with it as soon as it arrives. Chrysler’s go-fast obsessed engineers also took a Dodge Viper ACR-X racer to Green Hell, recording a laptime of 7:03... something, just for the fun of it.
We’ll remind you that this story started back in 2008, when the Dodge Viper ACR set a mainstream carmaker production car record of 7:22.1, which stood until this summer, when the Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1 took that title, with a time of 7:19.6, before Lexus’ aforementioned feat.
