We’d just like to start off by saying – what a horrible time for Chrysler to announce that it may sell its Dodge Viper business. According to Motor Trend, which makes it pretty official, the 2008 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR recently brought in a Nurburgring lap time of 7:22.1, beating the Corvette ZR1’s 7:26.4 and Nissan GT-R’s 7:29 time.
FIA World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) driver Tom Coronel piloted the Viper SRT10 ACR around the Nurburgring with his first attempt bringing in a time of 7:42. The second and third attempts came in at 7:35 and 7:24 respectively. The fourth time Coronel took the Viper SRT10 ACR around the Nurburgring he shocked the crowed with his record breaking time of 7:22.1
