Occasionally, when I’m in a masochistic mood, I like to daydream about first-gen Dodge Vipers. You don’t see that many of them and they are so hilariously bad that they are actually amazing. This red one I’m showing you now is the grossest, grimiest, most disgusting example of an early Viper that I’ve ever seen. And…
Friends, I am still mourning our loss of the Dodge Viper, a king of the road in its own right. And though the car might be no more, at least its birthplace will be put to good use.
Yeah, the new Viper (RIP) is nice. It’s sleek and actually good to drive (I’m told). But I’m not interested in that one. I want a first-gen Viper. The one that had no airbags or traction control. That’s the good shit.
“Bad welds,” he says. “Too easy to not wrap around a telephone pole,” he says. This is the last, most extreme version of the Dodge Viper we’re talking about here! Somebody shut this geezer up and make him show some respect!
The Dodge Viper will be one of those cars that didn’t sell so well when it was available, but will be remembered fondly in the future, especially once the robots take over our roads. It’s about to be discontinued, but there’s one last sliver of good news: Dodge will soon reopen the order books for the last batch of…
The Dodge Viper is a magical piece of track-record-annihilating, tire-smoking, loudballs V10 kit, so we’re always disappointed to hear that the most gloriously old-school and rowdy of mainstream supercars doesn’t sell well. That is, unless it’s dying in 2017. All of Dodge’s 25th Anniversary Vipers already sold out.
Today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Dodge Dakota sports an eight-litre V10 from a Viper under its hood, and a six-speed Tremec to boot. That makes this a pickup with pick up, and a hauler that can haul ass, but will its price inevitably haul it down?
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.
South Korean and American forces are said to be at a readiness unlike any in the world, wound up to spring into all-out war if need be at the sound of a klaxon. This readiness in showcased during combined live fire drills, where the total force is brought together as much for show and intimidation as for training.
Prestige and exclusivity don't always need to be imported. Case in point: this brutish, home-grown 10-cylinder slice of 'merican pie known as the Dodge Viper GTS. Not only has this amazing car aged remarkably well, but it's depreciated to the point that it's cheaper than a modestly-optioned Honda Accord EX-L.
Jalopnik Reader Ron Schendorf has provided this weekend's Weekend Wallpaper. It's an amazing photo of Kuno Wittmer's #93 Dodge Viper GTS-R. I asked Robert to give us the low down.
For a good 10 years, the Dodge Viper ACR was the hardest, nastiest, trackiest Viper you could track. Lighter, stiffer, and more stripped out than a normal Viper, it was a true beast. But the current-gen Viper has yet to get an American Club Racing variant — until now.
It's one of the best looking cars at the Lone Star Le Mans weekend. It's one of the best sounding cars here, too. Oh, and there's two of them.
The great Carroll Shelby used a very simple formula to make the Cobra one of the fastest roadsters of its day...take a big engine, cram it into a small car. The Honda S2000 is one of the best handling cars to come from Japan, so I'm not sure how a Viper V10 improves the balance, but I like it.
[As driver Tommy Kendall notes, IMSA's got no rules about spinning the tires in the pits, leading to the smokiest of burnouts at the Sahlen's Watkins Glen Six Hours. The Vipers are goddamn gorgeous.]
Not to be outdone by any two-bit Corvette that Chevy happens to dump on the world this weekend, the Viper is striking back. With a new paint color! Okay, so it's not as big a bump as the Z06, but holy hell, just look at it. It's green. Very, very green.
November 14, 2013 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - Fans have voted and today Chrysler Group's SRT brand has announced that Competition Blue wins as the designation for the new exterior color on the 2014 SRT Viper.
The SRT Viper has recently gotten some flack for not being so much a track beast, as it is a beast in general. I don't care, because it's still a laugh of a car and that's why I imagine one buys it. And hey, it sure looks good, too.
