The antithesis of “extreme” is mild, moderate, or temperate. No one in the history of time, and whatever came before that, has ever called any model of Viper mild, moderate, or temperate. Vipers were born of Detroit fire, fury, and a singularly American take on the sports car. With snarling push rod V10s, side pipes, and swoopy lines the Viper carries the torch of great American road and track cars. Despite the relative insanity of all Vipers, the good people at Dodge thought it necessary to label this particular model as Extreme. Really, that tells you all you need to know. But as a purely academic exercise, let’s discuss further...
The ACR Extreme is a huge departure from lesser Vipers. These cars are designed explicitly to win road races, not just drag races, and to beat the pants off anything from Flacht, Affalterbach, or Munich on any course or track. They have sophisticated adjustable aerodynamics front and rear, adjustable race suspensions, huge sticky tires, and all the horsepower. Wonderfully, they also have three pedals, a manual gear lever, and power to the rear wheels. It is probably fair to say that this is a close as you can get to an actual race car that can still wear plates from all 50 states, and is covered by a factory warranty.
The example shown here is a two owner vehicle with 16,997 miles and counting. It was originally purchased in central Pennsylvania on July 11, 2016, and thus the 5 year, 60,000 mile powertrain warranty is still intact, good until July of 2021. The original owner only drove it 993 miles in nearly a year, and this appeared destined for the fate of many race bred, limited edition cars: the garage. Then, the current owner stepped in, and did what Dodge intended. He drove it. And just the right amount, covering 16,000 miles in 2 years. Neither owner has tracked, auto crossed, nor raced this car.
This truly is a usable car: it easily fits a set of golf clubs in the trunk (or a week's worth of luggage, a Costco run, your scrap booking binders, or gear for whatever hobby you're into)!
The MSRP on this car was $148,335 with factory options. Before delivery, a full body Xpel paint protection film (PPF) was applied to all body panels, not just forward facing panels, leaving the paint underneath today as pristine as the day of delivery. There are no blemishes or flaws in the paint known to the owner, the only visible mars being minor, and within the depth of the PPF. AutoPreme floor mats with red diamond stitching were also added before delivery, bringing the out the door price of the car to just over $155,000.
The car has been meticulously cared for, with all recommended service being performed ahead of schedule. There are no known mechanical issues with this car, everything functions as intended. The following maintenance has been performed at the indicated mileage:
- 500: oil and filter change
- 4,832: oil and filter change
- 7,352: oil and filter change
- 12,822: oil and filter change
- 13,073: transmission fluid and differential fluid changed
- 14,447: air filter cleaned
- 14,462 (4/19/19): New tires
- 16,381 miles: oil and filter change
This car has very desirable options which separate it from other Viper ACR’s currently on the market, including factory striping (a $5,800 option) and carbon fiber structural x-brace (a $2,800 option).
This is a rare opportunity to own a like new Viper ACR Extreme which has been meticulously cared for, has all the right options, and remaining factory powertrain warranty.
