So it is pretty damn fast for a V6

Not sure if anyone saw the article from Car and Driver.



Fastest car they have ever tested.




Billy Johnson took the car around the track for a few laps before C&D did their testing and broke the lap record for a production street car which was a 2:40 held by the Viper ACR. He had to save the tires of the car so there is probably some time left in a hero lap. This is at VIR, which plays to the strengths of the car. On smaller tracks it's unlikely it would be able to roll with the ACR due to tire size and outrageous down force.

Super kick ass

A young man was following Him, wearing nothing but a linen sheet over his naked body; and they seized him. But he pulled free of the linen sheet and escaped naked. (Mark 14:51-52)

Still not as impressing as the Viper ACR, and I dont know why people dont realize how amazing of a car it was.

I dont like dodge at all, but the Viper is a different story I would own an ACR in a heart beat! The looks, the speed, and the price is awesome! You are buying a $150,000 car that runs with $500,000-$1,000,000 cars! If I had one, I would lower it change the wheels (just not a huge fan of them) tint the windows and put a exhaust system on it to make it scream!

Yeah I'd change the wheels on them too, maybe a set of Vossens for the street and then like a set of Enkeis for the track.

I can tell you that you probably wouldn't like an exhaust on it.

Even well thought out exhausts don't sound right. Factory is probably the best you'll get because it's quieter and it does sort of have an exotic wail.

I've been on track, next to stock and modded vipers at full song for extended periods of time.

A set of twins instead of mufflers would do the job for me.

I wish Ford would send out a competition pack car and actually throw down a lap but they already said they aren't concerned with lap records.
