    Prefix Corporation Joins Effort to Take Viper
    Back to Germany’s Famous Nürburgring
    Some would think this effort makes no sense… But then, you learn about the amazing passion behind this final attempt.

    (Rochester Hills, MI) - - Throughout the Automotive and Aviation business, Michigan based, Prefix is typically known as the company that industry manufacturers partner with, to bring their new de-signs to life. Utilizing their wide-ranging capabilities, the Prefix team creates the most technologi-cally advanced concept vehicles and prototypes in the industry. From concept luxury cars and business jets, and even spaceships seen in Hollywood films.

    However, to hard-core Viper enthusiasts, Prefix is best known as the place where all current Vipers are meticulously hand-painted. At their Auburn Hills facility, every Viper receives a labor-intensive paint and finishing process typically reserved for custom show cars. Additionally, Prefix dyno-tests every massive Viper V-10 engine prior to installation, and their interior trim department even provides custom luxury interiors to those who want something truly one-of-a-kind.

    So, when Dodge announced that this summer production of the Viper® would come to an end, Prefix and many within the Viper community desired a way to send-off the Viper with a loud V-10 roar. “The logistics and expense involved to take on this challenge are enormous!” exclaimed event organizer, Russ Oasis. “We really appreciate everyone involved in supporting the effort and making this happen.” Next month, Prefix Corporation, Kumho Tire USA, The Viper Exchange, BJ Motors, and an exceedingly passionate group of Viper enthusiasts will return to Germany, at-tempting to take back the Nürburgring record with a production fifth generation Viper ACR Ex-treme.

    The challenging 13 mile race track that circles the small village of Nürburg, or… “The Ring” as it is affectionately known to gear heads around the globe, can arguably be considered the ultimate in bragging rights, when completing a lap in record time. In 2011, the Viper captured that record with the fastest production car lap. The production car record is currently held by a Lamborghini Hura-cán Performante, although many in the automotive world dispute the Lamborghini’s time and feel that the Porsche 918 is the rightful owner of the current record. This Viper group believes taking back the record from all contenders would be a great way to celebrate the car’s impressive run as America’s Supercar.

    “Prefix has a long history with the Viper and with the many Viper club members around the world.” explained Prefix Sales & Marketing Director, Jhan Dolphin. “This is a huge challenge, but regardless of the outcome, supporting this effort is a great way to celebrate the car and our passion-ate friends who drive them.”

    No one can deny the Viper’s performance capability, with a previous Nürburgring record and cur-rently holding track records at 13 different U.S. racetracks. So why bother? When you speak to those involved, it is clear that this 2017 effort is purely about automotive passion. For additional information on Prefix, visit: www.prefix.com

    Very nice. I think the GTSR photos always look good in the dim lighting. This is going to be a fun month for the Viper Nation to follow along.

    WOW!

    TBH, I thought we were going to send some heavily worn Vipers with ugly liveries and decals. GTS-Rs with tasteful decals? This looks LEGIT!

    Way to go Andy and team!

    Pretty positive we won't be able to catch that Huracan Performante, but proud and happy we are making an attempt none the less.

    Awesome looking cars !!!!

    Good call on using those GTSR's for the run

    Since there are two cars, is there a possibility that they will be set up slightly differently as far as the aero, to cover the bases ?

    Great question, and I would say that with two different drivers, with two different driving styles, and all of the OEM adjustability on these cars that both will end up being setup to suite each drivers needs in order to run their quickest lap in each car.

    We will have more time to test over there than we ever have so I feel confident that what we will get the most out of the cars.

    As for the GTS-R's being chosen, thank Bernie Katz, and Ben Keating for that call

    Thanks everyone that donated for your support, it would have never happened without the amazing sponsor support, and the support from all of the owners.

    Those Vipers look great! Very tastefully done. Good job!! I can't wait to see the final lap times.
    What's happening with the cars after they are done there? Are they already sold or will they be auctioned off??

    When I was buying my car I was told black with brass monkey wheels were the fastest. Why wouldn't you guys use the fastest car available?

    Are these in standard ACR trim, 3 speakers, no carpet in trunk, soundproofing under hood? Carbon fiber x-brace?

    They are GTS-Rs which are built off the GTC process, meaning carpet, speakers, etc.

    i was wondering if they would remove those items to bring the car to an ACR spec.

    Interesting choice given the fact they're trying to break a record.
