this lap time was done using trofeo r tires that come with the car as an extra, the slightly slower time was because of the daily tires it also comes with. the P1 also comes with and uses the trofeo's and still didn't beat the acr

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
