Watch: Chris Evans goes flat out in a Dodge Viper
Brand new TG TV clip shows Evans in a 645bhp Dodge Viper ACR. Cue noise
Top Gear TV returns to your screens this Sunday, and as a little treat to get you ready, here’s our host Chris Evans going flat out in a Viper.
First things first. The Viper in question is an ACR – which stands for American Club Racer. It’s got 645bhp and 600lb ft of torque from a monster 8.4-litre V10 engine, and will hit a top speed of 177mph.
It weighs just 1,549kg. It sports many splitters, dive planes, vents and diffusers. There is a wing. There is much senior intent.And to drive? Well, we’ll hand over to Chris, in the clip above…
This week’s episode features the ACR vs a Corvette Z06 in Nevada (the home of Top Gun), Matt LeBlanc in Ariel’s Nomad, and celebrity guests Gordon Ramsay and Jesse Eisenberg. We’ll have much more from the show – on telly this Sunday, 29 May – so stay tuned to TopGear.com.
