The Dodge Viper has seen a good run since its inception in 1992, representing the near antithesis of polished offerings from supercar manufacturers such as Ferrari and Lamborghini.

styling in the place of refined masculinity. And while it has certainly aged in the marketplace, it is leaving us at the top of its game.

In 2009, the Viper captured the production car lap record at the iconic Nurburgring. If that wasn't impressive enough, it went on to set a production car lap record of 1:33 at Laguna Seca, one of the most challenging circuits in the world. In commemoration of that, Dodge is releasing a limited special edition Viper ACR that will see only 33 units rolling off the production line, and it is simply the best Viper to ever make it into the hands of the public.

The Viper ACR 1:33 will have a special two-tone black and red paint scheme outside, a beautiful piano-black console inside, along with red gauges and red stitching highlights, but the real story lies elsewhere. This 2010 ACR has aerodynamic upgrades that include a carbon fiber splitter in front and an adjustable carbon fiber wing on the rear that together produce an incredible 454kg of downforce at 241 km/h – 10 times what the base SRT-10 produces. In addition, the gearing has been super-tweaked to give the 600hp V10 beast greater high-speed acceleration and higher straightaway speeds. For perspective, this 2010 Viper ACR will go from 0-325 km/h an astonishing 14 seconds faster than the 2009 model.

Supercars, take note - when your time has come, this is the perfect blueprint of how to exit the stage door with style.
