Overview

The 2015 Dodge Viper SRT exterior styling retains the sexy shape of Vipers past, with a low nose, long hood and rounded, flowing roofline to an upturned tail, with each side punctuated by massive side exhausts. This is the most refined Viper shape to date. Underneath is an impressively outrageous 8.4L V10 boasting 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque, which drives the rear wheels through a Tremec TR6060 6-speed manual transmission. Driving aids such as launch control and stability control are now standard on the Viper, though both can be switched off.
2016,
2016,The Viper sits on a chassis that uses super-formed aluminum on the doors and sills and extensive use of carbon fiber in the body panels. Overall weight distribution is 50/50 front to back, and the whole car rides on coil springs with gas-charged Bilstein dampers and tubular stabilizer bars. Braking is done by big 14-inch Brembo disc brakes all around; SRT claims a top speed of 206 mph and 0 to 60 mph in the low 3-second range.
2016,
2016,Three trims are available. The base Viper is aimed at the enthusiast, and SRT claims it to be "a modernized adaptation of the original." The interior is vastly improved over previous models, however, with a higher standard of materials as well as fit and finish. It still comes with cruise control, automatic climate control, proximity keyless entry and a high-performance 12-speaker stereo with an LCD control system. Sabelt racing seats are standard, as is seat height adjustability -- a first for the Viper. The Viper GT adds a driver-selectable two-mode Bilstein Damptronic suspension system, 5-mode electronic stability control, Alcantara and Napa leather interior with accent stitching, and a GTS hood. Finally, the Viper GTS features Laguna leather seating with power adjustability, the Damptronic suspension system, 2-piece Stoptech brake rotors, an 18-speaker sound system, and more. All Vipers feature bi-xenon projector headlights with LED daytime running lights and turn signals, while LED taillights feature at the back. A host of exterior colors and stripe options are available, along with several interior colors, three different audio systems, and eight different alloy wheels.
2016,
2016,A number of packages are available for the Viper, including Time Attack 2.0, which adds a tuned stability control setting, special suspension tuning, Pirelli performance tires and a special spoiler and front splitter. The GTS Laguna Interior package adds upgraded leather seats, special instrument panel trim, an SRT steering wheel and various upgraded leather interior touches. Both of which are available on the GTS. Both trims allow a fair degree of customization with various racing stripes and carbon fiber exterior add-ons.
