In addition to sit-up-and-take-notice exterior styling, the Viper comes nicely equipped with air conditioning, keyless entry, power controls, navigation, adjustable pedals, AM/FM/CD/Satellite audio, airbags, ABS brakes and high-density discharge headlights.Read more Read less
After a one-year absence, Dodge's iconic, V10-powered sports car is back for 2008 with extensive mechanical changes, along with changes to the hood and front end. Most notably, the Viper's V10 engine has been expanded to 8.4 liters and now makes 600 horsepower--90 more than in the previous version. Also, the six-speed manual transmission has been improved, and there's a new speed-sensing limited-slip differential. The run-flat tires have been replaced with Pilot Sport PS2 performance tires and a new wheel design. The Viper's color and trim choices have been greatly expanded for 2008. Inside, there are four new color combinations, and a choice of new bezel finishes. And there are five new exterior colors: Venom Red, Snakeskin Green, Viper Violet, Viper Orange, and Bright Blue.
Overall performance; raw and unruly character; attention-getting design.
Acceleration, grip, handling, and braking are the 2008 Viper's game, along with flamboyant styling and a raucous engine sound. This is a car for those who value performance and styling above comfort, and want to be noticed. With all the mechanical improvements, performance promises to be better than ever, and this year's new interior colors and trim bring a much-needed fresh look to the cabin.
