The Dodge Viper was undoubtedly one of America’s greatest performance cars. Over a 25-year production span, there were five generations of the V-10-powered snake, before Dodge pulled the plug on the program in 2017. Fast forward 5-years, and the Dodge Viper fan base is as big as it ever has been.
With Dodge Vipers going for record amounts over the past couple of years, we like to browse the various auction sites to see what the American supercars are going for these days.
This Gen5 2016 Dodge Viper ACR caught our attention on BringATrailer.com. Painted in the beautiful Stryker Orange Tri-Coat Pearl and featuring a painted carbon-fiber rear wing, a removable front splitter, dive planes, HID headlights, side-exit exhaust outlets, and a black rear appliqué, the car is one of the more aggressive-looking Vipers to come from Dodge.
Being an ACR (short for American Club Racer), the car is fitted with Gloss Black-colored 19-inch ACR wheels with a Red pinstripe. Those sharp-looking wheels are wrapped with 295/25 front and 355/30 rear Kumho Ecsta V720 ACR tires and hide a set of Red Viper-branded Brembo calipers over carbon-ceramic rotors.
Because of its track-oriented setup, the ACR is equipped with a 10-way manually-adjustable suspension system, a 5-mode electronic stability control, and an electronic launch control system.
Sitting under a front-opening clamshell hood is the heart of the beast, an 8.4-liter VIPER V-10 engine producing 645 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque. Like all Gen5 ACRs, power is sent through a driver-oriented Tremec 6-speed manual transmission, showing that the Viper is a true driver’s machine.
The digital odometer show only 34 miles have been put on this car since it rolled off the assembly line at the Conner Ave. Assembly Plant.
The cockpit features bolstered Black leather seats with high-grip Alcantara inserts and contrasting white stitching. Even the instrument panel and center console are wrapped with leather. A checkered flag pattern is featured in the Alcantara door panel accents, showing the ACR’s track heritage. The interior also includes Red seat belts, power-adjustable pedals, a passive entry system, automatic climate controls, and an 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen infotainment system with navigation.
The Carfax report shows no accidents or other damage and lists history in Texas, Maryland, and Ohio.
Since this isn’t the ACR-E (“E” standing for Extreme – the more hardcore version of the ACR) it will be interesting to see how much money this car will bring in. Thanks to its low mileage, the car has already hit the $175,000 bidding mark (as of the writing of this article).
