The new 2010 Viper ACR-X debuts this morning at the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Trade Show in Orlando, Florida. In a nutshell: It’s a turn-key, limited-edition Viper aimed specifically at road racers that combines the best performance attributes of the Viper Competition Coupe and the record-breaking Viper ACR. (The SRT team tested it at Laguna Seca raceway for the first time last month, and professional driver Kuno Wittmer was able to run consistent 1:31.00 lap times around the 2.238-mile, 11-turn course more than 3 seconds faster than the record-breaking Viper ACR!) The car is slated to make its track debut to kick off the new Dodge Viper Cup racing series in July 2010.

The Dodge Viper ACR-X takes the performance attributes of Viper to an even higher level for a wide range of drivers starting with the grassroots racer all the way up to the professional, says Dodge President and CEO Ralph Gilles. This project is a result of many years of performance engineering expertise from our SRT team, combined with the passion and dedication of Viper Nation, to keep the Viper racing tradition going strong on tracks around the country and the world. Stay tuned for more on the ACR-X and Viper Racing.
