Viper ACR coming?

by David Zatz on

The release of a teaser image of the Dodge Viper ACR concept coincides with rumors that a new Dodge Viper ACR is under way for 2015 or 2016, possible replacing the current TA (Time Attack) model.

The Viper ACR would, according to sources, be mainly a suspension and/or airflow upgrade, designed to increase track performance but not necessarily straight-line acceleration. Two possible paths would be easily adjustable suspension components to permit rapid compensation for local tracks, and increased downforce to add traction possibly at the cost of increased drag. These rumors remain unsubstantiated, but the release of a Viper ACR at the upcoming aftermarket show (SEMA) appears to be certain.
