More ’Ring

Every week the time falls on the Nurburgring circuit. This week, the Yanks

It seems like a new lap record of the Nurburgring is set every week, but that's not stopping manufacturers from going for it.

Just as we get to drive the Corvette ZR-1 for the first time - that broke the record, erm, maybe last week - so news reaches us of the Dodge Viper ACR setting a rather quick 7:22.

We say rather quick, we mean mind-bendingly fast.

Watch Dodge Viper ACR lap on YouTube:

 

We don't yet know if it's official, but it certainly looks good enough for us. We're now very intrigued to see what the Nissan GT-R V-Spec will do when it's ready, as that did an unofficial 7:25 earlier this year.

Things are certainly looking up for the Yanks this week in the car world.

Now share it...
