“Dodge Viper ACR Extreme Aero Package: The big wing, huge front splitter, and dive planes on the Dodge Viper ACR are probably the most in-your-face aerodynamic features on this list, but they're also some of the most effective. With the optional Extreme Aero Package, the ACR generates legitimate race car levels of downforce. So much downforce, that it can reduce your MPG even when you're towing it. Seriously.”

#Motorsport has drawn billions in R&D investment over the decades. Designing, building, and maintaining a world-class #racecar takes serious dollars, and leading the pack among the best in the business is a huge financial venture. While the byproduct of their investment is entertaining to watch, and successfully draws in a big enough crowd to justify the investment, the racing world’s tech is making the country’s roads more advanced. And a lot cooler.
Most of these technologies trickle down from the cutting edge, well-funded racecars to their more affordable, street-legal cousins. And while the really advanced features are still reserved for cars with a very high price point, even affordable rides will eventually be able to adopt and integrate this tech as it becomes cheaper to produce and replicate.
The #PistonFoundation salutes the companies who put invest money into designing the automotive systems of the future. Their #racing technology allows even the average car guy to experience some of the thrills of the racetrack.
