This photoshoot showcases two vehicles that can easily be placed on the opposite sides of the high-performance scale. One is a cultivated performance machine, the other one is a Dodge Viper ACR. Clearly, when compared, the two couldn’t be more apart, but at the same time, couldn’t be more alike.

The BMW M3 is a business slicker that can turn on the racetrack with ease, tearing it up alongside other high-performance sports cars. The Dodge Viper, on the other hand, never pretended to be anything but a nasty growling V10 powered machine that will rip your head off the first chance it gets. Yes, it’s also one hell of a capable track machine.
The Viper ACR is powered by an 8.4 L V10 engine, delivering a whopping 640 horsepower and at 600 lb·ft (813Nm) it is coupled with a Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual transmission. In turn, the Dodge Viper ACR of the second generation can accelerate from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) of 3.5 seconds. On the other hand, the BMW M3 is powered by a 3.0 Liter BMW TwinPower Turbo engine, delivering 425 horsepower and 486lb-ft (658Nm) of torque. Thanks to an 8-Speed DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) system, the M3 can accelerate from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 4.1 seconds.
This photoshoot matches two vehicles of similar performance, different nature, but clearly, impressive looks. The BMW M3 is optioned with an aftermarket Ultraviolet Purple paint finish. The Dodge Viper ACR comes with a Stryker Purple finish. In turn, both vehicles exert a dose of classiness that’s not usually seen in this market range. Thanks to IND Distribution, we have a great chance to check both of these beauties out in the media gallery below.
