2009 Dodge Viper ACR
ACR stands for American Club Racing, and it means the most extreme
Viper built for public roads is slithering our way. Most of the
time, effort, and development dollars have been spent on stuff that
makes the ACR go faster through the twisty bits-suspension, brakes,
wheels and tires, and aerodynamics. Especially the aerodynamics.
Just chew on this for a moment: At 150 mph, the regular Viper coupe
generates 100 pounds of downforce; at the same speed, the Viper ACR
generates 1000 pounds of downforce.
Taking the checkered flag for the fastest car currently here at
Classic Auto Mall, we have on our consignment polished showroom
floors a 2009 Viper ACR. And not your everyday Viper ACR, this one
has had some serious investment in engine power upgrades. These
power upgrades are to the tune of 937HP 888LBS of torque, and a
Procharger F1C currently with 11.5 PSI of boost, although it can go
up to 16! Yikes!
All adorned with numerous carbon fiber fins, spoilers and
underneath aero packages, this Viper comes very close to being able
to drive upside down due to the downforce, but it's just a little
shy, which we would not attempt if it actually did! Fiberglass is
sculpted to create the exterior with scooped hood and hood venting
on either side, integrated headlights, a deep front quarter panel
cove, rounded roofline, and short trunk area. It's really all race
car, and even looks the part with a fine mix of Viper Red and
Black, changing back and forth on each panel, using mainly red on
the bottom, and black with red striping on top. A big key to the
downforce is the large rear spoiler which can be adjusted to
various angles depending on the track you want to go around.
Tastefully hidden side pipes show only their ends which poke out
just above the rockers and in front of the rear wheel well. Black
spoked Sidewinder wheels with red exterior trim rings are wrapped
in low profile sticky rubber. Get a load of those big disc brakes
shining through with the red Viper calipers, and let's go
A swing of the red and black vinyl sculpted doors with some matte
faux machined metal door actuator and vertical pull, and we are
stepping into aero heaven, and it's just the inside! Crossing over
the deep threshold, we see charcoal gray suede inserts with smooth
leather bolster surrounds covering high back racing style buckets
with extra side panels to keep you secure. A big center console for
fiberglass covered with red leather, and using panels inserted of
carbon fiber, sport a glovebox, shift lever cupholder, window
toggles, and handbrake. The carbon fiber continues to flow upward
on to the dash front, where it houses 3 glowing red lighted white
faced gauges, a Pioneer radio with a surprise screen that ejects
itself upon the fire up, and comes to a vertical position rest for
easy viewing on the navi, and backup cam screen, as well as the
various controls displayed within the screen menu. In front of the
leather covered rally steering wheel is a semicircular arch dash
top, with a trio of white-faced gauges deeply inset into the curve.
These glow with red lighting just like the 3 to their
right...snazzy. On the rear panel you will note a large woofer and
tweeter inset not yet another carbon fiber panel pumping out the
DBs right next to you. black carpeting for the floors and this is
continuing into the rear "hatchback" storage area.
A V10 engine rebuilt with all Gen V internals, 1300cc injectors,
dual fuel pumps and the F1C Procharger which just sings with the
sound of copious amounts of air entering when you press the
accelerator. 1.75-inch custom headers for the exhaling thru the
Borla mufflers, and an AEM Infinity stand alone computer with
self-turning, boost and traction control controls in the console. A
6-speed short shifter manual transmission uses a McLeod twin disc
clutch. An awesome power plant, all shoehorned into the spotless
engine bay. The engine, although tuned for E85 can be fed with any
92 octane pump gas, and it will automatically adjust itself to what
liquid it is being fed!
A mixture of carbon fiber and aluminum ground effects panels
abounds and covers all the mechanicals to create a slip stream of
air underneath. No rust, just cast aluminum suspension, adjustable
ride shocks and struts, fully adjustable coilovers and oversized
disc brakes all around.
It's not every day one gets to ride in a 900hp car set up for
racing, so I hopped in with my trusty decoder/experienced driver,
and he attempted to have me soil my khakis and strike fear in me.
With his foot only halfway down on the power, this car just lights
up and goes on and on. It really needs to go to a certified
racetrack to realize the full potential of its power, aerodynamics
and handling. It was a comfortable ride, and all functions worked
perfectly at slow or fast speed. It provides a nice array of
conveniences as well, so you could use it as an everyday driver
during the week.
This car arrived with a big binder of all work done to it, and has
its original window sticker. It is in showroom condition and runs
like the hurricane winds blow. (and with nearly the sound of one,
thanks to the whooshing sound of the Procharger!). Plenty of
stopping power, conveniences and just a beautiful everyday driver
sports car that can do at least 160 on the track! All the while
that airflow sings to you for your enjoyment.
