Look at it. Just look at it! I’m kind of terrified right now — and I like it.

The new Viper ACR is loaded down with aerodynamic, braking and suspension enhancements to make it a weapon of mass destruction for the road and the race track. The adjustable dual-element rear wing, rear carbon fiber diffuser, unique hood and front splitter produce an obscene amount of downforce. Up to one ton of downforce at 177 mph. The most aerodynamic downforce of any production car. ALL THE DOWNFORCE.

Other enhancements include massive Brembo carbon ceramic brakes with the largest brake pad area ever on a Viper. When it comes to a stop, time actually moves faster around the car due to the warping of gravity. Ever seen Interstellar? It’s like that shit.

Of course, under the hood lies the familiar and iconic 8.4-liter V10 OHV engine putting out 645 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque, which Dodge claims is the most torque of any naturally aspirated sportscar engine in the world. You’ll also be able to custom-spec it however you want through Dodge’s one-of-one program.

Pricing and release date have not been announced yet. Prepare yourselves.

Why do Vipers not FLY out of the dealership? A three-year-old used Ferrari California pulls down $200K, but Dodge had to reduce the price of the base Viper by $15K in order to sell any at $100K. New. With a warranty.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD???!?!?!!*

(*not that I have illusions this will be a $100K model... just...
