At SEMA 2014, Dodge presented a Viper ACR concept car based on the new VX I platform. After lots of rumors and speculation, the car was eventually introduced in 2015 for the 2016 model year. The base price of the 2016 ACR was US$121,395 in the United States and CA$159,995 in Canada.
The 2016 Viper ACR came in installed with an all-new aerodynamic body kit made from carbon fiber, that included a new front splitter and a fixed carbon fiber rear wing, altogether producing a total of 680.5 kg (1,500 lb) of downforce at corners. The 8.4-liter Viper V10 engine produced the same 645 hp (481 kW; 654 PS) and 600 lb⋅ft (813 N⋅m) as all other Viper trims. The brakes were from Brembo, with discs and calipers built specifically for the car. The discs were now carbon ceramic, a first for the Viper series. The braking system contains 391 mm (15 in) discs with 6-piston calipers up front, and 360 mm (14 in) discs with 4-piston calipers down the rear. The tires were from Kumho, using a set of tires called the Kumho Ecsta V720 ACR, a variant of the V720 specifically built for the ACR. The front tires are P295/25R19Z, slightly smaller than the regular Viper, and P355/30R19Z at the rear. Suspension system is made by Bilstein, which has 10 settings for rebound and compression tuning for the dampers.
On August 31, 2017, production of the Dodge Viper and its variants were discontinued with Fiat Chrysler citing un-met vehicle safety standards and a production plant's closure as the main factors.

The Viper ACR requires 35 blueprints to be assembled, an additional 10 blueprints to reach 2 stars, 20 to reach 3 stars and 32 to reach 4 stars. A total of 2,537,720, 24 Common Import Parts, 12 C Class Parts and 4 car specific parts are required for upgrades.
Much like its real-life counterpart, the Viper ACR is heavily focused on acceleration and handling at the cost of top speed. Similar to the Rezvani Beast X, the Viper ACR possesses excellent acceleration, responsive handling and stable drifting, as well as above-average nitro efficiency. The Achilles' heel of the Viper ACR is its top speed, even when maxed out, it can only hit 195 mph on land without the Nitro Shockwave. This made the Viper ACR more suitable for TLEs than multiplayer, where it will most likely compete with cars like the Ford GT (2017) that can easily outrun the ACR.
