Unmistakable design; blistering acceleration; excellent performance for the money.
As Dodge's flagship sports car, the Viper continues to offer a lot of performance for the dollar. Available in both coupe and roadster configurations, it's a car for those who value all-out performance over daily comfort. It's equally at home on the autocross track or the drag strip, and its 600-hp 8.4-liter V10 offers both brutal power and throaty sound through its side-exit dual exhaust.
The Viper's 8.4-liter engine remains unchanged from 2008, with Chrysler's unique variable valve timing offering 600 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque. Dodge claims under 4-second zero-to-60 times, with a 200-mph top speed. A Tremec 6-speed manual remains the only available transmission, and a twin-disc clutch and limited-slip rear end help wrestle the Viper's power to the ground. A special swinging oil pickup helps keep oil flowing even under hard acceleration and tight cornering.
Both a coupe and a roadster are again available. The coupe retains distinctive "double bubble" styling, while the roadster again comes with a manually operated soft top and heated glass rear window. Standard features include dual power mirrors, power windows, power door locks, keyless entry, power adjustable pedals, air conditioning and HID headlamps. A tan leather interior is available this year, as well as several instrument bezel finish choices.
Anti-lock brakes with massive 14-inch rotors with Brembo dual-opposing piston calipers are standard. Huge 18-inch by 10-inch front wheels and 19-inch by 13-inch wheels are also standard, again fitted with Pilot Sport PS2 performance tires. Aluminum control arms are used front and rear, along with lightweight coil-over-shocks. A total of 12 exterior colors are available, along with six stripe colors, five interior colors and four wheel options.
The ACR package, available only in coupe form, adds a carbon-fiber front splitter, hood louvers and rear wing to the exterior, with race-bred adjustable KW shocks, larger stabilizers, and much stiffer springs. Forty pounds of weight are shaved off the stock Viper, and unsprung weight is also reduced considerably through the use of "Sidewinder" forged wheels and 2-piece brake rotors. Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires come standard. An optional "Hard Core" package reduces weight even further through the removal of the audio system and most of the sound deadener.
Built since 2008, the fourth generation Viper is scheduled to end production after the 2010 model year. 500 cars will be built, as well as 50 "Final Edition" units (20 coupes, 18 roadsters, and 12 ACRs), which will feature special "AXZ" build codes.
The Dodge Viper SRT10 returns mostly unchanged for the 2010 model year. A new premium tan Nappa leather interior is available. The transmission has been upgraded with a new ZF Sachs twin-disc clutch that Dodge says lowers rotating inertia by 18 percent, giving less pedal effort and better engagement feel. Only about 500 Vipers are scheduled for production, as well as a limited run of 50 "Final Edition" models. The ACR Edition receives several small changes as well, including a "Hard Core" package, which reduces weight by 40 pounds. Other updates include a shorter fifth gear ratio (from 0.74 to 0.80), a new short-throw shifter and new rear wing profile and end plates to reduce drag and improve stability. New colors include Toxic Orange and silver.
