The Dodge Viper first arrived in concept form at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in 1989. Three years later, the first production Viper rolled into showrooms as a 1992 model. With a massive V-10 powerplant, rear-wheel
drive, and an absence of electronic driving aids, the Viper offered the traditional muscle-car formula"if a bit too raw for some consumers. Now in its third generation, the Viper offers a slightly more refined overall package, yet with its updated 600-hp engine it continues to carry the successful mixture of bullish brawn forward. For 2008, Dodge introduces the Viper SRT10 ACR. The ACR (short for "American Club Racer") version shares the same V-10 powerplant with the standard Viper Coupe and Roadster, but it offers a host of performance upgrades that transform this Viper into street-legal racecar.
Hand-built at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit, the 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR is easily differentiated from the standard Viper Coupe. Unique paint schemes, aggressive exterior styling, special wheels, and visible mechanical upgrades offer bold aesthetics that translate to functional benefits on the track.
