2010 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR
The Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR - short for American Club Racer - made its public debut at the 2008 Los Angeles Auto Show. The 600-horsepower Viper SRT10 ACR is a street-legal Viper engineered to dominate on the race track. Because it is street legal, die-hard Viper and track enthusiasts can drive their car to the race track, run it at top speed on the track and then drive it home. On September 14, 2011, on the Nurburgring Nordschleife, a 2010 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR recaptured the production car lap record with a 7:12.13 elapsed time. (continued below)

"With the all-new 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR, SRT has taken the ultimate
American sports car and injected it with an extra dose of racing DNA," said Mike Accavitti, Director - Dodge Brand and SRT Global Marketing and Communications,
Chrysler LLC, in 2008. "With the Viper SRT10 as the starting point, SRT
engineered a combination of reduced weight, race-tuned suspension and
aerodynamic improvements to create the ultimate Viper for the street and track."
Derived from the 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10, the heart and soul of the 2010 Viper
SRT10 ACR is SRT's 8.4-liter aluminum V-10 engine that produces 600 horsepower
and 560 lb-ft of torque.
The 2010 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR stays true to the five key aspects of SRT:
standout powertrain, bold exterior styling, race-inspired interior, benchmark
braking and world-class ride and handling characteristics across a dynamic
New for 2010
For the 2010 model year, the Dodge Viper ACR received a shorter fifth gear ratio
(changing from 0.74 to 0.80) for improved high-speed acceleration and higher
straightaway speeds. A new short-throw shifter also came in 2010 models for
enhanced driver experience and better performance. The rear wing profile and end
plates were also redesigned to further optimize the vehicle aerodynamics and
improve rear yaw downforce. These changes resulted in an increase in top speed
of 4 mph (to 184 mph).
Bold Exterior Styling
The 2010 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR exterior styling cues offer not only bold
aesthetics, but functional benefits on the track. These include a variable
geometry "fanged" front splitter, an adjustable rear wing sculpted by CFD
(Computational Fluid Dynamics) and optimized front dive planes. These new
aerodynamic devices are formed in high-performance autoclaved carbon-fiber. By
using both unidirectional and woven laminates, the aero equipment is optimized
for the minimum weight possible.
The splitter and dive planes feature a clear-coated carbon-fiber weave on all
Viper SRT10 ACR models.
The front splitter includes three removable rub strips that provide protection
and wear resistance. Supported by stainless steel tension cables, the splitter
is designed to absorb the energy from minor upward deflections.
The Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR aerodynamics are tuned and balanced to maximize
downforce and provide increased levels of lateral grip. Each Viper SRT10 ACR
also includes a track extension that replaces the center splitter rub strip and
fills out the fanged splitter scallop for closed-circuit events. The aerodynamic
effect of the track extension is a reduction in overall drag and an increase in
front downforce of nearly one-third.
The front fog lamps have been deleted and replaced with lightweight filler
The 2008 Viper SRT10 ACR featured a signature two-tone paint scheme with a black
center section, while the 2010 Viper SRT10 ACR is black on the sides. An optional driver's stripe is available on a two-tone Viper Red
or a Viper Black ACR. The driver's stripe also features a sewn leather accent on
the steering wheel. A clear-coated exposed weave is featured on the rear
carbon-fiber wing of all two-tone and driver's stripe Viper SRT10 ACR models.
A standard Viper SRT10 monotone paint scheme is also available featuring a
body-color rear wing and dual painted Viper stripes.
Lightweight forged aluminum Sidewinder wheels are painted gloss black to
complete the one-of-a-kind exterior styling.
The 2010 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR was available to customers in five colors: Viper
Red, Viper Black, Viper Violet, Viper Bright Blue Metallic and Viper Very
