Dodge Viper ACR Tops Lexus LFA, Sets New 7:12 Nurburgring Lap Record

Just a week after Lexus confirmed its LFA Nurburgring Edition had set a new lap record on the Green Hell, Dodge has one-upped the Japanese automaker. With a 7:12 time, the now out of production ACR's time is a solid two seconds ahead of the $400,000 LFA supercar.

With a 32-hp advantage on the LFA, the Viper ACR's real strong points are excessive amounts of torque and a nearly absurd spoiler that provides race car like downforce at speed.

In addition to this news, Dodge also reportedly ran a Viper ACR-X track car on the 'Ring, lapping almost 10 seconds faster than the standard car with a 7:03 run.

A Viper? Really? Wow, that must be one hell of a driver or the ACR has much better handling than the standard version. I hate driving my buddies Viper as the rear end will never stay put when you get on it. And that is when you are going straight, forget about turning!

I still prefer the LFA, of course.

lest we not forget that the viper acr runs on cup tires. they have a treadwear rating of 80 and are completely useless in the rain. if you put cup tires on a lfa i wouldnt be at all surprised to see a lap time under 7 minutes.

Respect a man's car, the man respects you.
