I'm more impressed with how they managed to get tyres with a treadwear of 20 through DOT than the time.

0_0 ...Holy Cow... What a blistering lap time. I'd love to see Randy's reaction and driving-impression after that lap-time....I find it very satisfying that a RWD, Manual-Transmission, Naturally/Aspirated car just beat an AWD, Dual-Clutch, Hybrid SuperCar from Porsche. ^_^

For sure an independent test would do a couple of tenths more, or maybe a second more. But you can see how the car is sticked to the asphalt, and stops stupidly quick. So it is definetly a track monster that i will require something of the Radical level to beat it.Well, we have to wait a couple days for R&T Performance car of the year, where the Viper ACR is being compared against 488 GTB, C7 Z06, and other great cars :)

Normaly when a company would take there car there i wouldnt compare it to other cars, But this is Laguna Seca AND Randy Pobst, So that time is something else.

Still, I wonder if it will be that fast when MotorTrend tests it here...

5 seconds faster than the viper TA? The ACR of last gen on slicks didn't even go that fast
