Photo of the Week: 2009 Dodge Viper ACR in the Mojave Desert
Our latest Photo of the Week is arguably the most artistic photo we’ve seen to date and was taken by none other than Notbland aka Webb Bland.
Taken in the Mojave Desert in early 2011, the impromptu photoshoot where this photo is featured took place in just a 45-minute session with no lights and no assistance. Yet to our amateur photography eyes, we can’t even begin to think of how this photo could have been improved.
Depicting an extremely unique 2009 Dodge Viper ACR, this particular image is so special because the Viper ACR’s masculinity has been captured beautifully with the setting sun in the background helping to pull this photo off. Then there’s the lovely wooden structures in the background of this generally abandoned desert and the juxtaposition between the technologically advanced Viper ACR and the surrounds.
As a reminder, the 2009 Dodge Viper ACR features a massive 8.4-liter V10 engine producing an incredible 600 horsepower and 560lb-ft of torque. It is consequently able to sprint around the Nordschleife in what was a record time of just 7:12.1 late last year after bettering the record which was previously held by the Lexus LFA Nurburgring Package.
