A quintessential example of an evolutionary design, the Generation V 8.4 l V10 Viper engine that powers the 2016 Dodge Viper ACR (American Club Racer) features unique technology to make it the largest displacement and highest torque naturally aspirated engine that has ever seen production in an automotive application. A low inertia aluminium flywheel, variable valve timing utilising a novel cam-in-cam system, and a swinging oil pickup are among the unique features that were developed to allow this engine to deliver the performance necessary for the Viper ACR to claim 13 track records . ATZworldwide 3/2017 features the aerodynamic concept that has also contributed to these achievements.
