Wonder if Viper will be in business long enough to sell at least a few.

Impressive for the Viper no doubt!!! The C7Z did good & I'm sure the ZR1 will post a great time. The hellcat is still a ball of **** & can't beat the Camaro or Mustang around that track

not that guy, I'm a car lover, brands to suck me in. Kudos to them. You have a small engineering team putting out a purpose built car. What is there 1 viper for every 1,000 vettes. Two different animals IMO.

The quick answer is no. There have been absolutely no cars run for a record at the Nurburgring or any other track that have been taken off the showroom floor as is and run.

None have been done with the set of tires mounted by the factory. None have been done with the fuel put in by the factory. None have been done with the oil put in by the factory. None have been done with the seat or pedals set at the same setting as the factory. None have been done with the suspension setting set by the factory. Guaranteed. 100%. No one running a car at the ring is that stupid, and there is no reason to not change them. No one seriously following the ring records expects that they would not adjust the adjustments that the factory provides for tailoring the car to the driver preferences.

In the hands of someone that knows how far the Viper can go, it's a very fast car, in the hands of the average joe that can now afford one that's in middle age, it's too much to take to those limits, wrecking the car when they try to achieve them.

I'm still trying to figure out how 7:03.45 is a record and 6:57 isn't.

Hey Dodge fanbois, denial isn't a river in Egypt.

Monk - it's a qualified record "fastest ICE only production car". This is a all viper enthusiast sponsored attempt without any factory backing whatsoever. The cars came off the showroom floor from viper exchange in tx. Kuhmo kicked in loads of tires, prefix kicked in some logistical and technical support, and donors who contributed over $10k got to go watch (as did road and track). They accomplished that time in their first and only timed ring record lap attempt due to weather. The group is raising more money to go back in aug with a three hour window to run more than just the one lap. We're all hoping to get rid of the qualified record and take the outright record.

I'm impressed with the level of dedication this grassroots effort has given. With more vettes made in one year than all vipers ever produced it'd be cool to see the vette community put something like this togeather for the Z06 also

If I had the requisite 100k+ there is a strong chance you'd see me in a Viper ACR before you saw me in a Z06.

A Dodge is too heavy and can't turn! The Camaro can still beat it around the drive through.

Good job Viper. Nice to see an American car so fast running with the most expensive cars and beating most of them. Only 7 cars quicker!

Hey Dodge fanbois, denial isn't a river in Egypt.
Personally, I am a "fanboi" of Made in America sports cars. Couldn't give a sheet about what conglomerate decided to produce it.

I agree that the argument about the Lamborghini's run is not worth the time. Just say that it was not witnessed by anyone, and let it lie.

Anyone that uses the ring "record" time to boast about their personal car is just a bench racer. No owner of the car could get that time anyway.

(my comments are as both a Vette and a Viper owner. Both great cars well suited for the purpose for which they were designed. no juvenile fanboi comments from me.)

dude that's all well and good but the 6:57 was done by a 918 and was documented.
