Video: Dodge Viper ACR Nurburgring lap record confirmed

September 28, 2011

Dodge has released a full video confirmed its recent Dodge Viper ACR Nurburgring lap record of 7:12.13. The big V10 Viper was driven by Dominik Farnbacher.

Isn’t it interesting that a 2011 model vehicle can come back to the Nurburgring and blow the current record times out of the water? This means, more officially than last time, that the 2010 Dodge Viper ACR is the quickest ‘normal’ car with a boot to have ever lapped the famous 20.8km circuit.

The previous vehicle to claim the record was the Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition which managed it in just 7:14 just a few weeks ago, followed by the epic Porsche 911 GT2 RS, which has done it in 7:18.

As previously reported, the Dodge Viper ACR is powered by a 8.4-litre V10 which develops 450kW and 760Nm. It’ll do 0-100km/h in around 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of over 320km/h. The Viper ACR also comes with significant aerodynamic features to aid handling and grip and weighs 1527kg.
