The ragged, powerful, classy and speedy Gift with Panache - The Dodge SRT Viper

Updated on January 15, 2014

Dodge Viper SRT

The latest Viper SRT10 came out of the production line in 1992 and still continues in modern times, remodeled to high specifications with spectacular results. The looks are stunning in a ragged sense, with curves that leave the observer in awe.

The car conjures images of a cobra in an observer’s mind. It is no wonder that the manufacturer uses a viper on its logo. In a figurative perspective, a viper tends to be attractive in a mean sense. Likewise, motor sport enthusiasts continue to be drawn by the Viper’s looks and performance.

From inception, the dodge has continued changing its outlook as it continues to charm enthusiastic motor sports enthusiasts. The original Dodge Viper had more ragged looks compared to more recent modern curvaceous models.

The history of manufacturing the Dodge Viper

The Dodge SRT Viper has a long history in its production posterior, originating from conception by Chrysler in 1988 and assembly as a concept car in sheet metal by Metalcrafters, prior to the eventual production of a dazzling ragged, classy and speedy two-seat sports outfit that was named after the cobra snake in 1990, under the name Viper RT/10. | Source

Dodge's Lineage

The production chain started and continued with the lineage of the following Dodge Viper models, some of which became very popular, while others fell by the side;

Dodge Viper RT/10 (1992-1995)

Dodge Viper RT/10, GTS Phase II SR (1996-2002)

Dodge Viper GTS R Concept (2000)

Dodge Viper GT2 (2001)

Dodge Viper SRT-10 ZB (2003-2006) (SRT-Street and Racing Technology)

Dodge Viper ACR-American Club Racing (2009)

Dodge Viper SRT-10 Phase II ZB (2008-2010)

Dodge Viper ACR-X (2010)

Dodge Viper SEMA concept (2012)

Dodge Viper SRT GTS-R (2013–present)

Dodge Viper SRT TA-Time Attack (2013-present)

The passage of time has seen most of these models falling out of production with only a few remaining on the production line due to public demand. The latest Dodge still draws enthusiasm from the public just like the first Dodge Viper did back in 1988.

The last Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR came out of the production line on 1st July, 2010. The car was modified, tuned and manufactured for performance on high speed tracks.

The Viper’s Power transmission, speed, dynamics and fuel consumption

Every Dodge Viper is powered with a V10 engine that has a six-speed manual transmission gear box. Unlike in automatic transmission, the manual transmission literally puts the vehicle at the driver’s control. In short, it does what you want by extending your physical prowess and capability in a simulated cybernetic sense.

The car has a rear wheel drive system that ensure a powerful forward thrust right from rest to higher speeds.

It has an equally powerful acceleration. It takes 3.5seconds for the vehicle to accelerate from 0 km/h to 100km/h, to attain a top speed that levels out at 325km/h (202mph).

The current fifth generation road-legal Dodge viper SRT10 ACR which was designed by Scott Kruger, features racing dampers, shocks, aerodynamic and other lightweight components. It is a two-door coupe.

The car has a large rear wing that is capable of generating an amazing 1000 pounds of down force at 150mph (241km/h).

A “fanged” front splitter, rear wing sculpted by computational Fluid Dynamics and painted sidewinder wheels add to the already bold looks of the Dodge Viper.

The engine capacity for the V10 engine is 8.4 litres that promise an alarming torque. It has the capability of churning out 600 bhp (480Kw) for every 6150 revolutions per minute. It is categorized as a sports car.

Sitting capacity and cost

The vehicle was initially built as a racing car and hence centered on a two-sitter design.

Depending on the year of manufacture, in-built components, the engine’s capacity and power, the cost of the car can range from $100,000 upwards.

Those who need ragged power, class, style, speed and exclusive panache on the wheels, go for a Dodge Viper- the cobra under your charge. It has the capacity to attack time with speed in style.

A fitting Christmas gift on wheels for a loved one. This gift is evergreen. It remains on demand all year round. If you love them, carry them home for Christmas in style.
