Get to Know the Viper
The Viper has commanded attention since its unveiling at the 1989 Detroit Car Show, and it’s easy to see why: these hyper cars are stylish and push the boundaries of what’s possible for vehicles to achieve.
The SR I, later called the Dodge Viper RT/10, hit the market in 1992 and set the bar for American supercars for the rest of the decade. This first-gen vehicle came with a Lamborghini-built V10 engine, leather seats and steering wheel, RWD (rear wheel drive), a high-fidelity sound system, and 400 max horsepower. These features were unfortunately not paired with many safety features initially.
The SR II launched the second generation of Vipers, but Dodge didn’t stop there. In 1996, the motor company unveiled the Dodge Viper GTS. With its coupe body style reminiscent of the earlier RT/10, this model gained widespread recognition for its design.
Throughout the next few years, the Viper enjoyed extra features like power windows and locks, air conditioning, and airbags. The Dodge Viper ACR performance package option gave drivers even more power options.
Perhaps the most notable gen 2 vehicle, though, is the GT2 Commemorative Edition, which is notable for its white-with-blue-stripes design. Released in 1998, only 100 of these vehicles went on sale, making it one an extremely rare – and extremely valuable – supercar.
The third generation hit the markets in 2003, although the Viper underwent serious redesigns back in 2002. During that year, the Dodge Viper SRT 10 replaced the RT/10. In 2006, the Dodge Viper SRT-10 coupe replaced the GTS.
These third-generation vehicles only offered a few exterior colors each year, such as the striking cobalt blue or Viper red. Interior colors, though, varied throughout this generation’s lifespan.
The ZB II marked the beginning of the fourth generation in 2008. Effectively the same as the prior gen on the outside, the interior and mechanics are where the fourth gen differentiated itself from its predecessors. Better yet, these changes – including a reworked exhaust, new tires, and redesigned electrical system – made the Viper safer than ever.
Fifth and Final Gen
While previous generations of Viper were exclusively for skilled drivers, the fifth generation was designed to be more forgiving and accessible. The SRT Viper in 2013 came with a V10 engine, 6-speed manual transmission, traction control, anti-lock brakes, customizable interior instruments, a maximum speed of 208 mph, and a mpg of 12 city/19 highway.
Two years later, Dodge renamed the SRT Viper as the Dodge Viper. A lucky few were able to get their hands on the Dodge Viper GTC, or custom Dodge Viper GT. Unfortunately, Fiat Chrysler ended production of the Viper in 2017, ending an iconic chapter in American car history.
