In its last years of production, the Dodge Boys wanted an appropriate swan song for their legendary Viper. So, they tweaked the ACR with a big (!) carbon fiber wing and various other aero accoutrements. All of this amounts to the stickiest Viper ever with a 2000 pound downforce at 177mph! In addition, massive 19-inch Kumho Ecsta V720 (street) tires measuring 295/25 up front and 355/30 in back work in concert with the aerodynamics to deliver “sustainable 1.5-g cornering,” according to Dodge.
Mechanically, the ACR benefits from carbon-ceramic Brembo brakes and adjustable Bilstein coil-overs. The brake rotors measure 15.4 inches up front and are squeezed by six-piston calipers, while the rears measure 14.2 inches and are clamped by four-piston calipers. The coil-overs have 10 settings for rebound and compression tuning and can allow up to three inches of ride-height adjustment so that racers can corner-weight the ACR (this is the practice of balancing the suspension to account for weight variability in the chassis such as fluctuating fuel levels, driver weight, etc.). The front springs were swapped for superstiff units rated at 600 pounds per inch, and the rears are rock-hard 1300-pounds-per-inch pieces—the springs are more than twice as stiff as those in the Viper TA.
What will the future collectability these Supercars be? Hard to say. However, if you’re looking for what is essentially a “brand new” ’16 Viper ACR, to add to your collection . . . or to start one. You’ve just found it! This sinister example is showroom new with only 33 miles on the odometer!
