Like-new 2016 Dodge Viper ACR Extreme looks for a bit of auction craziness in its life
The fifth-gen VX, for example, had a really diverse lineup of trims: TA (Time Attack), the easy-to-customize GTC, or the fiery ACR. As for the American Club Racing variant, it also came with a remarkably diverse set of options, just like the other versions.
This 438 mile (705 km) 2016 Dodge Viper ACR Extreme, for example, features the Aero groupset which has been used by the company to set a total of no less than 13 lap records. So, this can have a significant impact on the Viper’s top speed, reduced from 191 mph (307 km / h) to just 177 mph (285 km / h). But he’s also a canyon carving monster, with an extra 500 pounds. (207 kg) of downforce available in the bends, compared to the stock.
So it’s no wonder that this like-new example has garnered a lot of attention on the Bring a Trailer auction portal. There, private user HGALLC offers the Viper ACR Extreme from Great Neck, New York, dressed in a Viper White paint scheme with red and black details. Meanwhile, the interior is finished in black leather and Alcantara for a luxurious but spartan feel.
Naturally, the Viper’s main asset is the 8.4-liter V10 mated to a six-speed manual transmission and limited slip differential. Other highlights include the Extreme Aero package, carbon fiber exterior package, adjustable suspension setup, SRT hood or dual side-exit exhaust system, among others.
During its lifetime, the high-performance sports car has had only one owner, who now sells it with a clean Carfax title and a clean New York title. Of course, the Viper has drawn quite a bit of auction craze around it, so no one should be surprised by the current highest bid of as much as $ 226,000.
