Although still at least a year away from launch, Chrysler's published this first official "spy photo" of a development mule for the next generation 2013 Dodge Viper as it goes testing in the snow. Except it's really not the 2013 Dodge Viper. So what is it?
The original Viper, in GTS Coupe form, is still one of the most beautiful American cars ever built. The Dodge Viper GTS Hennessey Venom takes that beauty and turns it up a notch to "11." It'll also kill you if you're not careful. (via Photo Finish)
Ralph Gillies, Chrysler's top designer, told Bloomberg this week the next Viper will be inspired by "a naked woman on the beach" and will be "drop-dead beautiful." Fine — just as long as she's still engaging in that burn-your-legs-getting-out-of-bed fetish.
This mean-and-snakeskin green Dodge Viper shows us exactly why burnouts can be beautiful. Or maybe it's just that burnouts are beautiful when they're set to Wagner's Ritt der Walküren — or as we know it, Ride of the Valkyries.
The better to suck air into my ginormous twin turbo engine through my double K&N cone air filters, my dear. More shots of my honkin' huge nasal cavity below.
Attention SEMA goers: If you've misplaced an adorable puppy and a Dodge Viper converted to a roadster with chrome body work and some kind of metal tonneau funkiness, please come to lost and found, located near LugNut Luigi's Frozen Yogurt.
Chrysler decided to shoot 30 seconds of video showing a 300C sedan — sporting Utah dealer plates — supposedly imbibed with the 600-hp Viper V10 and an "SRT10" badge. So, you're just going to leave that there, then? [RedLetterDodge]
Select members of the Viper Club of America were able to catch a glimpse of what's likely the logo of the upcoming fifth-generation Dodge Viper at the 11th Annual Viper Club of America's Owners Invitational. Looks familiar somehow. Hmm...
For the gentleman drag racer: the 600 HP, 8.4-liter V10 from the Dodge Viper has been shoehorned into the surprisingly capacious engine bay of the 2011 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak. A snip at $85,512.
The Dodge Viper's 18-year production run has come to an end, and this orange-striped behemoth is the final car. (The interior alone gives palpitations.) Farewell, crazy snake — we won't see your like again. [DragTimes]
This motorcycle is powered by a 500-plus-hp V10 from a Dodge Viper. It is not a Dodge Tomahawk. Some crazy British guy built this sucker, and the loony bastard actually rides it. Awesome.
Remember the Maybach Exelero? The one-off, 700 HP, $8 million master car was built by Maybach for Fulda Tires back in 2005. Now, they're being made for the general public for just $670,000. But, there's a catch.
