Making the Dodge Viper ACR-X – Click above to view the video after the jump

Chrysler's put out a new video showing how it transforms a "run-of-the-mill" Dodge Viper ACR into the track-only ACR-X model. The work is handled at the same facility in Detroit that creates the Viper Competition Coupe race cars, but the process is quite a bit different. The Competition Coupe is built from the ground up at the preparation shop while the ACR-X is assembled at the Conner Ave. assembly plant and then retrofitted with race gear. This process allows the ACR-X to be built at about half the cost of the Competition Coupe.

The ACR-X is fitted with a host of kit, including a roll-cage, brake cooling ducts, competition fuel cell, extra dive planes, fire suppression system and bigger brakes. The ACR-X gets the same racing seat used in the Competition Coupe, available in two sizes to fit the driver. Get all the details in the video after the jump.
