In an effort to show that the Dodge brand still has plenty of life left in it, the Street and Racing Technology (SRT) team showed up to Laguna Seca with a shiny new 2010 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR. While the 2010 Viper SRT10 ACR will officially debut at the 2009 LA Auto Show in a week, Dodge was eager to show that the updated 2010 Viper was much more than just a pretty face. Chris Winkler drove the Viper to a 1:33.915 lap, besting the previous production car record of 1:35.075.
The 2010 Viper SRT10 ACR features a few small but noteable upgrades over the previous year SRT10 ACR models including a revised short-throw shifter, shorter fifth gear ratio, and a retuned rear aero package. More details will be announced next week when the LA Auto Show kicks off.
