Top Gear USA: Dodge Viper ACR-X Review

Top Gear USA may have wrapped up the second episode of their very first season, but due to geographical ramifications, many may have missed their first review. In Episode One of Top Gear USA, the boys tested the most powerful Viper in the line-up: the ACR-X.

In this video, you’ll see the USA’s version of the Stig as he whips the Viper around the new Top Gear USA track. The track is 1.6 miles long and consists of several turns as well as a few straightaways for optimal speed.

As a reminder, the Viper ACR-X is powered by the same SRT developed 8.4 Liter V10 as the standard super car, except that a set of factory tuned headers and a less restrictive exhaust system give the ACR-X a 40 HP kick in the pants meaning that there is a total of 640 HP on tap. Combine that with a weight savings of 160 pounds, despite the addition of a roll cage, and you’ve got an even more challenging track ready machine. On the market, the ACR-X is priced at $110,000.

Check out the video to see just how the Dodge Viper ACR-X did in the hands of the Stig when put up against the Top Gear USA test track.

It’s a shame, really. The Viper was one of those cars that could still hang w/ the newer, more advanced supercars, without changing very much throughout it’s life cycle

What lies ahead for the next generation of Chrysler’s sports car is still a mystery, but we were assured that the company’s new Italian owners have enthusiastically embraced the Viper and support its continued development.

that was an informative review, there is no doubt they can hit a 1.9M on their first show.
