In November of 1991, the 1992 Viper R/T 10 enters production at Chrysler's New Mack Avenue Assembly Plant. As with the concept car, the production Viper lacked the normal on-board comforts. It was quite evident this was a car built to accomplish one primary goal; go fast.
Fast forward to 1999 when the American Club Racer (ACR) version debuts. This particular iteration was squarely targeted to Viper owners wanting to experience the greatest potential for days spent on-track. The ACR comprised of unique one-piece BBS 18-inch wheels, Koni shock absorbers, adjustable suspension tuning, a K&N air filter, five-point safety harnesses, and a 8.0-liter, 460-hp rating from the factory for its V-10 engine. The cars received Mopar performance components and the performance numbers were recorded as a 180-mph top speed with a 0- to 60-mph time of 4.5 seconds. A ‘ram air” type system helps supply the engine to these impressive numbers, as does a six-speed manual transmission.
The 2000 Dodge Viper continued with near identical dual-styles, the RT/10 roadster and the GTS coupe, and also continued producing a limited number of ACR Vipers. In short, the 2000 Dodge Viper ACRs are street legal racecars. The comfort levels are considerable with air conditioning, CD player with sound system; power windows, locks, steering and four-wheel disc brakes. For 2000, a Steel Gray finish joined red and silver as colors of choice. This particular car is one of a reported 85 that were painted in the one year only Steel Gray/ silver stripe combination. Dodge only built 292 Viper GTS/ACR coupes in 2000; this special machine has been with the same caring owner for the past eleven years and less than 30,000 reported actual miles.
It is found in writings of the period that the 2000 Dodge Viper is not considered to be a car for beginners; few cars gave you as much power at your command. 2000 Dodge Viper GTS/ACR Coupe
