Dodge has just announced pricing for its recently re-introduced Viper ACR (American Club Racer) model, and is currently taking orders. MSRP is set at $117,895 (before destination and gas guzzler taxes). Upgrades over the base model include a slew of high-performance, track-ready components, which Dodge promises will deliver “ultimate handling, performance and road course domination.” It’s 8.4-liters of lap-time demolition, all in a package you can (legally) drive straight from the pits to your garage.
The ACR was originally unleashed in 1999, followed by the ACR-X for the second gen. The last ACR model we saw was available for the 2010 model year, with Dodge bringing a new concept to SEMA in 2014. The 2016 model was officially unveiled last week, and will be “hand-built” at the improved Conner Avenue assembly plant in Detroit, Michigan, which reopened in 2012 with new equipment and manufacturing techniques.
“This is without a doubt the best Viper ACR ever,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO of Dodge and SRT Brands, FCA North America. “The latest in aerodynamic, braking and tire technology will ensure its legendary performance reputation around the world.”
Production is scheduled to begin in the third quarter of this year, with 2016 models slated to hit dealerships shortly thereafter.
