We all love to dream. It’s what keeps us getting up at the crack of dammit and working until we’re too old to care. However, some dreams—like owning a 500 horsepower iconic American supercar—are delightfully within reach. If you think the Mazda Miata is good weekend car for the money, get a load of this.
I’m speechless. I have no words. This is the single greatest livery ever put on a race car, or any car for that matter. Better yet, on Riley Motorsports’ rowdy Dodge Viper GT3-R at the 24 Hours of Daytona. I mean, this is just the best thing to happen to cars. Ever. Look at it. LOOK AT IT.
It seemed pretty clear back in October that the not-SRT Dodge Viper updated in 2015 would be discontinued in 2017 as revealed in the new FCA union contract. Dead. Gone. Kaput. Wiped. Depressing. Depreciating. But now, like any good spin master, FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne says the status of the Viper isn’t definite, yet.
The Viper has actually done us a major service in removing the kind of people who would own a Viper from public society. When the car was announced they appeared unbidden at the gates of Dodge dealerships across the country, rubbing their blood-stained hands against the immaculate window glass until a salesman came…
The Dodge Viper will rip your face off and then laugh at you for having the audacity to even look at it. What do you need to know before you buy a Dodge Viper? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in the Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
The snarling, brutal, uncompromising fury of the current Dodge Viper makes it one of our favorite sports cars currently on the market. Unfortunately, the market has not been kind to the Viper. In news that’s probably not a shock to anyone, the snake could bow out in 2017—with no replacement in sight.
Wayne and D’Ann Rauh just collected two customized Dodge Viper GTCs from the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant, bringing their total collection to a whopping 79 Vipers. Only in Texas.
The torque. The wing. The downforce. It’s all there, and it’s all on video.
Not sure if this is bravery or idiocy.
I finally got in to see the pride of Detroit city’s auto manufacturing facility.
[Of course there’s somebody racing an old Viper at the ‘Ring! Team Titus Dittmann entered the N24 last year too, and it’s sehr gut to see those side pipes back. Photo credit: Máté Petrány/Jalopnik.]
“The Dodge Viper just isn’t hardcore and insane enough for me,” said no one ever. Here to address no one ever’s concerns is the new 2016 Dodge Viper ACR, the fastest, most track-capable street legal Viper ever.
FIRE! NOISE! VIOLENT AMERICAN SPEED! These are the things you'll get if you slap two turbos onto a Dodge Viper TA. Also, 1,042 horsepower at the rear wheels. Hellcat? More like Hell-kitten, amirite?
Dodge hasn't had it easy selling Vipers. First they had to discount them by fifteen grand, then the Hellcats stole all the thunder, and now the Z06 is at the top of the American sports car food chain. But if you want a customizable, hand-built, 645hp sports car for under $100k, you can have it with the Viper GTC.
