Dodge has released details on the 2016 Viper ACR, and the reveal has gotten us plenty excited for the absolute beast that the next-generation Viper ACR is going to be. Dodge has made this car track-ready while still allowing it to be street-legal, and the results are plenty impressive.
The 2016 Dodge Viper ACR is designed for elite aerodynamic performance, coming with 10 adjustable/removable aerodynamic components. These features allow a driver to customize his Viper experience like never before. The 2016 Viper ACR can be as basic or as insane as you want it to be, and we have a feeling that most drivers will opt for insanity.
The ACR features an optional Extreme Aero package, which allows a driver to make the car his own personal race car. This package comes with a removable front splitter extension, an adjustable dual-element rear wing, four dive planes, six removable diffuser strakes, removable brake ducts, and hood louvers that can be popped out to decrease air pressure in the wheel wells. All of these features serve to allow the Viper ACR to be aerodynamically fine-tuned like never before.
The 2016 Viper ACR’s body also features aerodynamic advantages at every turn. The body is designed to to produce nearly 2000 pounds of downforce at 177 mph with the aero package. This ain’t exactly your father’s Dodge Viper.
Furthermore, the 2016 Dodge Viper ACR will feature big, burly Kumho Ecsta V720 tires, giving the car plenty of grip and cornering to help accommodate the lightning speeds at which it can travel. The tires are slowed by carbon-ceramic Brembo brakes and adjustable Bilstein coil-overs, giving a driver plenty of control when need be.
Under the hood, the Viper remains pretty much the same, with a 8.4-liter V-10 engine churning out 645 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque. The engine is impressive enough, but when combined with the car’s aerodynamic stylings, the 2016 Viper ACR is just beastly.
Look for the 2016 Viper ACR to hit dealerships later this year. Just don’t be surprised when they leave those dealerships in a hurry!
