“Strictly for the hard-core: an even faster, furious-er Viper.” – Car and Driver 2008 Dodge Viper ACR review, November 2007
Car and Driver went on to explain the advantages and distinctiveness of the ACR variant: “… the SRT folks pulled a Colin Chapman on us and added not horsepower but lightness in creating the new Viper ACR. It is only 40 fewer pounds than the 3450-pound Viper coupe, but that's still lighter. And if there's a car that doesn't need a horsepower boost, that would be the Viper. Indeed, the standard Viper's 600-hp, 8.4-liter V-10 with 560 pound-feet of torque produces as much raw output as most hyper-tuned, track-only racers, and thus SRT left it alone and kept other mods simple but effective. This also helped Dodge keep the car at an as-yet-unannounced target price point....”
“Now, 40 pounds might not seem like a lot, but beneath that figure are two important considerations. That amount is the net weight saving after some 20 or so pounds of aero bits and other minor hardware additions were tacked on, and then you subtract some 60 pounds of weight loss of the unsprung rotating variety, i.e., tires, wheels, brake discs. This is not an insignificant sum and a measure that promises terrific braking and suspension reflexes.”

Offered here is a 2008 Dodge Viper ACR in orange-and-black over black. The car's current odometer reading is a Carfax-verified 1,067 miles, and its showroom-new condition is testimony to its light use by respectful owners.
The exterior paint combination is striking on the already attention-getting Viper coupe styling. An asymmetrical gloss-black hood stripe on orange, beginning on the hood, continuing over the roof, and extending over the trunk and aero spoiler, to the full-black rear. Other black body treatments include the front grille, front-fender rear-facing engine-cooling vents, rear-valence exhaust-outlet surround, lower-front aero spoiler, and body-side exhaust-outlet trim. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) The only chrome on the body is the racing-style, pop-opening fuel-filler cap. The overall look makes a powerful, serious-performance statement. The “ACR” front-fender graphics reinforce that. As with virtually every other surface on the car—inside, outside, top-to-bottom—the condition is as-new. Black-and-orange factory 5-spoke SRT-branded wheels with Viper-logo center caps are mounted with Michelin® Pilot Sport performance tires. The open-wheel style allows excellent views of the orange, Viper-branded disc-brake calipers. The entirely hand-built car could not have looked better when it rolled off the Corner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit. (There's an excellent 2015 USAToday piece on the building of Vipers online at: https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/cars/2015/05/09/see-dodge-viper-built/27056929/)
Inside, the ACR's performance orientation is evident everywhere. The color theme is black, with gray in a supporting role, as on the sculpted door and console trim. Black cabin carpeting (still wearing the factory-installed, temporary plastic covers) extends through the rear cargo area beneath the hatch. Well-bolstered racing-style seats are upholstered in white-stitched black leather with center, gray suede inserts and gray-embroidered Viper logos on the headrests. A black, 3-spoke, leather-covered steering wheel with Viper-logo emblem frames the comprehensive, white-faced gauge cluster including four smaller engine-monitoring gauges arranged vertically on the center stack on the driver's side. That center stack is painted in the orange body color and includes audio and climate controls forward of the 6-speed manual-transmission short-shift lever.
Opening the six-vented hood reveals an absolutely stunning engine compartment surrounding the car's 8.4-liter V10. Orange valve covers and air-intake cover match the car's exterior color. Viper branding is prominent, and every surface is pristine. Viewed from below, the story's the same: perfect condition, complete, undamaged in any way, and good views of the front suspension, lower engine, and rear ground-effects panel.
The car's original build and identification tags remain as mounted at the factory. The full complement of owner literature is included in the sale.
While the more than 155 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this '08 Viper ACR in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.
This '08 Viper ACR is a true performance-driver's ride. It will be the unquestioned star of its next owner's collection, just as surely as it will star on the road and track. We envy all that.
