And all-American one at that.
Don’t think for a moment that Dodge was going to let Chevrolet off that easy. Now that the Corvette Z06 is on the loose, Dodge really had no choice but to offer up something equally ridiculous. And that’s the just revealed 2016 Viper ACR, the "fastest street-legal Viper track car." So, how powerful is it? Try 645 hp and 600 lb-ft from that 8.4-liter V10. Add to that a new aero kit with plenty of carbon fiber elements, an enhanced suspension, and specialty track tires, and we have the baddest factory-spec Viper to date.
But what about that Z06? It pumps out 650 hp and 650 lb-ft thanks to its supercharged 6.2-liter V8. Along with its own body, suspension, braking and tire enhancements, the Z06 isn’t about to let the new Viper ACR walk all over it. But which of these track animals do you prefer? Which, do you think, will ultimately prevail to be the best-handling and fastest American-built supercar around a track? Let us know in the comments ahead.
