Some excellent footage has made its way online of the racing-spec Viper ACR-X tearing up the Nordschleife.
Earlier in the day we brought you the first (possible) photo of the new 2013 SRT Viper and now we have some footage of the Viper ACR-X racing spec model giving the Green Hell a real run for its money. The ACR-X clocked in with a fast 7:03.
A few months ago, the SRT Viper wrangled the lap record for production cars away from the Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition with an impressive time of 7:12.13. The official time for the ACR-X was a blistering 7:03.058. The Viper ACR-X packs a 8.4-liter V10 engine delivering a total of 640hp - a boost of 40hp above the standard model. The model is also 160 lbs lighter than the standard thanks to weight-cutting measures. It comes equipped with racing gear, like a roll cage, single racing bucket seat, Momo Corse steering wheel and self sealing fuel cell.
