Not really the car is going to get blasted by the Lamborghini Huracan Performte, Corvette C7 ZR1, Porsche 991 GT2 RS and the 720S on certian tracks.

I thought the Viper ACR ran a lap in 2:40.02. Kinda like how the Civic Type R ran a 7:43.8 at the 'ring

The thing is Ford doesn't want C/D or M/T to reveal this stuff, only R/T with their slower acceleration times because the Ford GT technically isn't a production car yet.
