2009 Dodge Viper ACR Steals Nürburgring Record From Corvette ZR1, Laps In 7:22 A 2009 Dodge Viper ACR has claimed the fastest time ever for a production car around the Nürburgring. The lap of 7:22 is just a few ticks quicker than the 7:26.4 lap set by the 2009 Corvette ZR1 . It doesn't come as much of a surprise, since the ACR is the most brutal version of the already-unforgiving Viper, whereas the ZR1 actually drives well on the road . Nonetheless, the Viper ACR is the new unofficial king of the 'Ring. If you'd like to compare its on-board video of the record lap to the ZR1's video , check it out over at Motor Trend . Looks like Jim Mero may have to head back to Germany and set that faster lap he was talking about after all. [Motor Trend ]
