Dodge Viper ACR

  • Lance Arnold setting 7:01.3 Nürburgring lap time in a 2017 Dodge Viper ACR on September 1, 2017

    What a way to go out. The Dodge Viper, which bowed out of production last month, this time for good, has clocked the fastest time for a rear-wheel-drive production car at the Nürburgring. On September 1, German racing driver Lance Arnold drove a 2017 Dodge Viper ACR, an uber-rare Viper GTS-R Commemorative Edition ACR to be exact, around the punishing racetrack in a time of 7:01.3.
