Video: 2010 Dodge Viper ACR breaks lap record at Laguna Seca

By Auto News Log • November 27th, 2009

Most people don’t usually care about racing circuits, instead focusing on the cars that are on them. But true enthusiasts know that if a track is designed properly, it can amplify the feats of both the cars and the drivers which handle them.

One such track is Laguna Seca in the USA, which has offered some unique thrills to anyone thanks to its sharp corners and demanding sections. That is why Dodge chose this track to prove the skills of the 2010 Viper ACR performance model, which is faster, accelerates better and even sticks more firmly to the road thanks to some aerodynamic adjustments, than the 2009 model.

The result? The 2010 Dodge Viper ACR has broken the lap record of Laguna Seca, which was set by a Devon GTX, also powered by a Viper engine. The new ACR, and sadly one of the last ones to appear for the brand, traveled the Laguna Seca circuit in just 1:33.944. In honor of this feat, Dodge was quick to announce that a commemorative Laguna Seca edition of the Viper ACR will appear soon.

You can check out the record-breaking lap, complete with commentary from Chris Winkler, the Dodge test driver which wrangled the Viper on the track
