2010 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR-X - Straight Scoop

By Tori Tellem

'10 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR-X
Meet the newest Viper. This limited, not-street-legal race car will go into production in the spring. The turnkey car will feature the 8.4L V-10 with factory headers and low-restriction exhaust, making 640 ponies. In addition to its suspension being tuned and upgraded for the track, the car shed 160 pounds as compared with the standard-production Viper. Like the competition coupe, the ACR-X will include a factory-installed rollcage and fuel cell among its safety equipment. It'll run you about $110,000, and it's competition ready for Viper Racing League, Sports Car Club of America, and National Auto Sports Association events.

Ford Mustang BOSS 302R
Did you know it has been 40 years since Parnelli Jones + Mustang Boss 302 = '70 Trans-Am championship? Like the Cobra Jet, Bullitt, and Mach before it, the Boss is back. In base model, you get a 5.0L engine paired with a six-speed trans, race dampers/springs, a Brembo brake/tire package, a rollcage, race seats, and more with an MSRP of $79,000. The Grand-Am Homologation Package (or M-FR500-BOSS R1) is set up for the Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge, with such items as a high-output engine, a beefier cooling system, a close-ratio six-speed, a seam-welded body, race exhaust, a high-speed balance/one-piece driveshaft, and race suspension with Koni dampers. The Boss 302R will arrive in the third quarter of the year, and 50 will be built.

Corvette Recall
The '05 to '07 Corvette and '05 to '06 Corvette Z06 with the removable roof are facing a recall because "the adhesive between the roof panel and the frame may separate," according to the recall notice from the NHTSA. With partial separation, side effects may include a snapping noise when driving over bumps, wind noise, bad panel fit, and leaks. If there's a complete separation, well, you can probably guess that side effect. A new roof panel will be installed by dealers as the fix. You can go to gmownercenter.com for more details.

Camaro SS Pace Car
The '10 Chevy Camaro SS Indianapolis 500 pace car has a few familiar items-the 6.2L V-8, a leather interior, and an RS appearance package, for example-but watch for the pace car's special front grille insert to show up soon as an accessory for the Camaro. The Camaro first appeared as an Indy 500 pace car in 1967-the year the car debuted, if you need that history refresher.
