Chrysler promised that the new 2008 Viper ACR would be priced at less than $100,000, and they were true to their word (barely) by announcing a $98,110 base price for the race-ready snake. The $12,000+ you spend over the base Viper coupe will get you a carbon fiber front splitter and adjustable rear wing, adjustable coilover suspension, a stiffer front anti-sway bar, lightweight 2-piece Stoptech brakes, and forged wheels wrapped with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires.The net result of all this is a 40 lb weight reduction. You can also opt for the hardcore package that takes out the audio system, underhood sound deadening material, trunk carpet, and tire inflator. Doing so drops the weight another 40 lbs. No word as to whether you'll be paying extra or less for that option. The powertrain remains untouched, but the 600 bhp and 560 lb-ft of torque coming from the V10 is more than enough.

      Love how this is the FIRST article after the Autobloggreen summary. :D

      Awesome package, and a pretty good price compared to the old ACR package.

      I like how the red stripe continues on the steering wheel; a small detail, I know, but looks nice.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Why is it painted like that? The sense of style department should be shot.
      I can't stand to look at it.

        Well considering you can get it in normal paint job I guess they escaped their firing squad.

        I love the paint scheme. But then my daily driver is orange with black racing stripes. :P

      If any of you have driven a 600 horsepower car on the street, let him be the first to pull my Car Guy card. :)

      -rndmnme- actually, "more than enough power" is precisely defined in the Guy Manual, 42nd edition, as:
      "power which guarantees utter decimation of whatever it is applied to". Since this is not the case here, Drew gets to keep his card, but it gets a hole punched in it.

      The performance parts are definitely worth the money (for a racer). The write-up does not make mention of a factory cage.

      is this the fastest street legal car money can buy?

      excluding radicals and caparos and other junk that is legal in one country and falls thru loop holes to be street legal, i cant think of a car that will lap a high speed track faster than this sucker

      Alright Drew, turn over your Car Guy card, there is no such thing as "more than enough" power.

        You get a hole punched in your card for having owned and read any type of manual. Im also gonna guess you ask for directions when youre lost too.
