Video: A Hot Lap in the Dodge Viper ACR-X with Ralph Gilles
Dodge Brand President and CEO Ralph Gilles is behind the wheel of a Dodge Viper ACR-X in this video taken at the Virgina International Raceway. This video shows Gilles reaching 165 mph in around 1 minute and 35 seconds, while Powertrain Communications Manager Nick Cappa shoots the video and holds on for dear life.
The special edition Dodge 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. The car is priced at $110,000.
