The Dodge Viper stands out as one of the most impressive vehicles ever produced by an American company. Despite experiencing several hiatuses and eventually being officially discontinued, the remaining Dodge Vipers on the road have gained immense popularity among collectors.
Dodge halted production of the Viper in 2017, but the hardcore ACR variant continues to compete favorably with some of the best sports cars and supercars in the current market. The ACR is propelled by a formidable 8.4L V10 engine, delivering 645 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque. This power allows it to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in approximately 3.7 seconds, reaching a top speed of 177 mph.
With the Viper ACR, Dodge introduced carbon ceramic brake discs and calipers, specially crafted by Brembo for the first time. The vehicle’s handling was further enhanced through an adjustable suspension provided by Bilstein and a set of custom tires manufactured by Kumho exclusively for the ACR trim level.
Dodge exclusively offered a six-speed manual transmission for the ACR, complemented by a capable limited-slip differential to effectively manage power to the rear wheels. The final production numbers reveal that only 585 chassis were sold in the United States during the model’s last production year.
