American Racer Built For World Dominance
Viper has a deep heritage in motorsports, with racing being a major part of the Viper DNA. From contending for wins to showcasing the Viper on the race track — its true home — the list of successes is long. Everything learned during the development of the GEN 5 Viper was applied when designing the Dodge Viper SRT® GTS-R race car. Knowledge gleaned from the GTS-R at the race track will forever play a role in future development of the production model.

Chrysler discontinues viper srt gts-r racing program right after winning titles in the imsa tudor united sportscar championship, chrysler has pulled the plug on its viper srt gts-r racing program.

Over the years, the Dodge Viper SRT® GTS-R shared many similarities with its street car counterpart. The goal of GT class racing has always been for the race car to resemble the production car, including overall vehicle design and aesthetics. Under the hood there was always a number of similarities between the race car and production car, including use of the same block and cylinder heads. When lined up side-by-side, the Viper GTS-R race car and the Viper production car always looked very much alike. 

The design of the most recent iteration of the Viper GTS-R used many of the guiding principles that were vital in the creation of the fifth-generation production version of the Dodge Viper SRT®. The initial morph and build of the race car took place in about six months, beginning in the fall of 2011, followed by the unveiling of the machine at the New York Auto Show in April 2012. On-track testing followed with adjustments made to the overall design and construction of the vehicle. 

The suspension of the Viper GTS-R race car was completely unique from its production counterpart in part due to its width. The Viper GTS-R checked in at 205 centimeters wide, with the front and rear each widened six inches. Michelin were the tires of choice for the Viper GTS-R, and the team joined forces with Motegi Racing as its official wheel partner.

Powered by an 8.0-liter V10 engine that was restricted by the series to produce between 480-490 horsepower, the Viper GTS-R reached a top speed of 185 mph. A transaxle mounted in the rear saved weight in comparison to a standard transmission, with gear changing taking place via paddle shifters on the steering wheel. On the track, the Viper GTS-R was fueled by E85 as part of the IMSA Green Initiative program.

One of the keys to success in road racing throughout the years has always been durable and reliable high-performance brakes. Brembo® provided the entire braking system for the Viper GTS-R, with each component carefully constructed and machined to endure the rigors of endurance racing, while helping to save overall weight on the race car. An extensive system of cooling ducts provided air to keep the brakes cool and reduced fade and other fatigue on the system.

The cockpit of the Viper GTS-R was designed first and foremost for driver safety. The Viper GTS-R was outfitted with the latest safety systems from Sabelt, along with a Racetech seat. All of the electronics used for data acquisition as well as communication were housed in the cockpit. By way of TUDOR Championship rules, air conditioning also had to be functional and meet a designated temperature in the cockpit during races. Insulation played a large role in that function.

Offering ‘1 of 1’ customization option for the ultimate personalized Viper ACR.

Production of the hand-built 2016 Dodge Viper ACR begins in Detroit in the third quarter of 2015; May 9, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - The next chapter in the history of the ultimate street-legal, track-focused, hand-built American supercar begins with the return of the new 2016 Dodge Viper ACR.

Certified for public roads and engineered to wring every last hundredth of a second out of road course lap times, the 2016 Dodge Viper ACR combines the latest in aerodynamic, braking and tire technology – a recipe designed to carry on the ACR’s lap-time busting reputation that has made it a legend on race tracks around the world.

The ACR starts at $117,895. That is more than the Corvette Z06, which starts at under $80K, but is less than the $130,00 Porsche 911 GT3. The V10 has always made the Viper more of an exclusive car than the Corvette, and when compared to the Porsche, it is a pretty solid deal.


Since its inception, the Viper has been a powerful, boisterous explosion of a sports car that is more often tamed than it is driven. In many Forms, the Viper went on to be a class leader in many endurance racing series, and the ACR brings that track-tested capability to the road in a street-legal package.
