Dodge has unveiled their new turn-key racer, the Viper SRT10 ACR-X.

Based on the Viper ACR, the ACR-X is a track-only race car designed to compete in the Viper Racing League, the Sports Car Club of America, and the National Auto Sport Association.

Power comes from an 8.4-liter V10 engine that produces 640 horsepower (40 hp more than the standard model). Other performance tweaks include a specially-tuned sports suspension, a 160 pound weight reduction (compared to the standard production Viper), improved aerodynamics (for increased downforce), and a complete safety package (with a roll cage, fuel cell and race seat).

During testing at Laguna Seca, the Viper ACR-X averaged a time of 1:31.00. As you may recall, the street-legal Viper ACR set the production car lap record at Laguna Seca, last November, with a time of 1:33.944.

According to Dodge's President and CEO, Ralph Gilles, "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. 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."

Set to go into production this spring, the Viper ACR-X will be priced from approximately $110,000 USD.
