Everybody wants to take a piece of the Nurburgring Nordschleife, but it is no easy task. Not only you have to beat the champions of the fastest lap times, you have to go through the tortuous twists and turns to get there.
The latest contender is Chrysler Group’s Street and Racing Technology (SRT), which puts the Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR to the test. And it looks like the Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR is recapturing the title as the top three fastest cars to circle the track with its 7:12.13 lap time.
“With no 2011 model-year Dodge Viper cars being produced, SRT joined forces with the Viper Club of America and the ViperExchange by Tomball Dodge team from Tomball, Texas, which supplied two brand-new 2010 Dodge Viper ACR’s off their showroom floor for the record-setting effort,” Chrysler said in a statement.
“We’re extremely proud to set the lap record for a second time at the famed Nürburgring Nordschleife,” said Ralph Gilles, President and CEO – SRT Brand and Motorsports, Chrysler Group LLC. “Our team returned to Germany knowing we’d left some time on the track when we set our first lap record, so this effort shows the incredible depth and capability the Viper ACR has by running a full 10 seconds faster than we did in 2008.”
The Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR was driven by GT driver Dominik Farnbacher. The Viper SRT team managed to beat out the Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition by almost two seconds.
