2017 Dodge Viper ACR Sets Blazing Unofficial Nurburgring Time

A crowdfunded effort to set a record Nurburgring lap time with a Dodge Viper has resulted in an initial time of 7:03.45.

With the Dodge Viper soon to be discontinued, a group of enthusiasts wanted to do what Dodgeofficially hasn’t: set a Nurburgring lap time. The crowdfunded effort features professional driver Dominik Farnbacher behind the wheel, the same person who set a record in 2011 with the older Dodge Viper ACR recording a 7:12.13 lap time.

Why would someone contribute to this?

I'm going to pay some guy I don't know to drive a car I don't own on a track I've never seen because. . .why? He can do it really fast?

Damn, that's stupid.

I "wanted" a Viper until my wife said "You may pay 90,000 dollars for a car but I won't". After that she thought my T/A 392 was right reasonable. And yes I would love to have a Viper.
