Chrysler may be about ready to unveil the new generation Dodge Viper, but the company isn’t finished with the current generation just yet. Apparently, Chrysler wants to make history by breaking as many records as they possibly can with the Dodge Viper SRT-10 ACR revealed just a few months ago.

A few months ago, the Viper SRT-10 ACR became the fastest production car at Miller Motorsports Park and had already sealed the deal with the fastest lap time in the Nurburgring back in 2008. Now the car is preparing to start an intense attack across the country to stake claim as the fastest production car on as much legendary courses as possible.

The tour is called the Viper Record Tour ’11 and features stops at the Monticello Motor Club, Sebring International Raceway, New Jersey Motorsports Park, and even the Nürburgring Nordschleife where Dodge hopes it will break the Viper’s own 7:22.1 lap time.

The driver for the tour has yet to be announced, but rumors are suggesting that Kumo Wittmer — the driver who set the production car lap record at Miller Motorsports Park with an ACR - will be one of the drivers sitting behind the wheel.

To say we’re excited about Chrysler’s plan of action would be an understatement, so stay tuned and hear all about the Dodge Viper SRT-10 ACR’s success - or lack thereof!

Racing cars are not meant to be beautiful for the speed performance is the only thing that matter. The good thing about the Dodge was they don’t focus in the styling but on the power output of the vehicle.

Ever since, I’m not impressed with the styling of Dodge vehicle. However, the good thing is they offer a high speed performance on their car. I think the lap time record is quite faster for a muscle car.

I don’t like the design of its side mirror. It is very long that looks like an antenna. Furthermore, I can’t even say that it has a good performance and can compete with other sports cars. The information is short, so we need more specs about this car.

This is really a superb and stunning one. As you look at the car’s design, it is cool. Chrysler made a good job on putting up this one. This is what the car racers are longing for.

Dodge Viper is really a must see car. For me, this model can literally breaks or race off
with the famous Bugatti Veyron. As they say, its the Veyron Slayer right?

I’m totally excited upon checking out the updates about Viper Record Tour because we wanted to know which cars created a new record. Fortunately, Dodge Viper was given a chance to prove its performance setting a record of 7:22.1 laptime. Not bad at all!

mm. It seems that the Dodge is planning to get all the plaque in the world of racing and production! I was impressed with the performance and world record of this car. And it makes me wonder on why they haven’t sell that much compare to Ford car.

I have to admit that I shouldn’t question the look of this car though its a racing car type, and what’s important to this model is the speed performance. However, with the racing car that it out in the market there’s an automaker that makes an awesome and aggressive look for their vehicle which I haven’t seen in this production.
