The Dodge Viper is not a comfortable car. The interior is covered in fine materials and the frequency range of the engine's noises seem specifically designed to cause headaches.

Prices start at $121,990 or $32,900 more than the least expensive Viper. In ACR trim, the Viper loses the under carpet padding, 9 of 12 speakers plus amplifier, carpet and trim from the cargo area and sound deadening in front of the rear wheel wells. Weight loss is compensated by the addition of go fast bits like the giant rear wing, 10-way adjustable Bilstein Motorsports shocks, Brembo carbon ceramic brakes, a rear diffuser and a front splitter. Total claimed curb weight is 3,392 pounds in Aero trim which is within a few stone of the rest of the Viper lineup. The diffuser strakes and leading edge of the splitter are removable, made to be replaced after rubbing on track tarmac and make street driving slightly more practical.

Our test was limited to on track shenanigans at Virginia International Raceway which is fitting because we wouldn't have anything good to say about driving the car on the street. The ACR is a race car sold in the showroom, although with the Viper's 1 of 1 customization program, your custom build can include as many creature comforts as you like.

All of the test cars have air conditioning, but that shuts off at full throttle with a six second reset, even with the Viper's 645 horsepower and 600 pound feet of torque there is a lot of full throttle at VIR. And on days like this you really don't care about the temperature, at least not in our three lap stints.
