500 examples of the 2010 Dodge Viper will be produced as roadster, coupe and ACR (American Club Racer) variants. Unchanged from the traditions of the first year of the Dodge Viper in 1992, the 2010 car makes use of a V-10 powerplant sent to the rear-wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. A 8.4 liter powerplant, the 2010 Dodge Viper lineup produces 600 horsepower and 560 pounds-feet of torque. Capable of 0 to 60 miles per hour acceleration in less than 4 seconds and top speed of 202 miles per hour, the 2010 Dodge Viper is a two-seat delight. However, while a nearly unmatched high-performance car, the 2010 Viper does offer some comfort equipment on the roadster and coupe versions. Standard features include air conditioning, seven-speaker stereo system as well as power windows and locks. Consisting of the final 50 Dodge Vipers to roll off the assembly line, 20 coupes, 18 roadsters and 12 ACR models will wear a special graphite and black exterior paint scheme accented by a red striping to commemorate the Final Edition models. With the 2010 model year wrapping up production of the current V-10 Dodge Viper supercar, rumors suggest the Viper name will once again return as the halo car of the Dodge lineup.Read more Read less
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.
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.
