And so does the beginning of the end for the Viper. Detroit - March 29, 2010 - Dodge Brand President and Chief Executive Officer Ralph Gilles shows some of the first production models of the spec-series 2010 Viper SRT10 ACR-X moments after the cars became the first of the 2010-model-year Dodge Vipers completed at the Conner Avenue (Detroit) Assembly Plant. Built for road-racing enthusiasts, the Dodge Viper ACR-X combines the best performance attributes of the record-setting, street-legal Dodge Viper ACR (American Club Racer) and the safety equipment of championship-winnning Viper Competition Coupes. "With its amazing on-track performance, the Viper ACR-X is going to seriously turn the heads of all road-racing enthusiasts, whether it is the grassroots driver all the way up to the professional," Gilles said. Viper ACR-X is to debut in the Dodge Viper Cup spec-racing series in July.
