Here's to not pulling any punches. The 2006 Dodge Viper SRT10 Coupe, which returns after four years and a subtle but effective redesign that matches that of the current roadster, will be priced at $83,995 (a $12,000 increase over the 2002 model), including an $850 destination charge. Chrysler is touting its return to the coupe's "double-bubble" roof design, those contours that once indicated more space for drivers' helmets, but now indicate fat-headed pretense (ok, they still look cool). The coupe gets the latest SRT-tuned 505ci V10, which produces 500hp and 525 ft/lbs of torque, as well as the racing stripes that still remind us of when Carroll Shelby abandoned Ford for Chrysler back in the 1980s, and pitched in for the Viper's original marketing, before he returned to the land of GT-500s and free beer. Good times.
