2014 Dodge SRT Viper Coupe

What’s New for the 2014 Dodge SRT Viper Coupe?

For 2014, the SRT Viper gets a new special edition – the track-tuned TA package option. In addition, the multimode stability control system gets a new Rain mode.

2014 Dodge SRT Viper Coupe Exterior

The Viper is, and always has been, an intimidating beast in the world of supercars. The two-seat coupe demands respect with its aerodynamic angles, sexy curves, and bold front fascia. More refined than ever, the Viper comes packed with top-of-the-line features including 18-inch front wheels, 19-inch rear wheels, summer tires, automatic bi-xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights and taillights, and keyless ignition and entry.

2014 Dodge SRT Viper Coupe Performance

An 8.4-liter V10 that generates an astronomical 640 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque powers the 2014 SRT Viper. Blink, and you might miss it – the 2014 Viper goes from 0 to 60 in just 3.7 seconds.

2014 Dodge SRT Viper Coupe Efficiency

The kind of power that the Viper offers comes at a cost. The EPA rates fuel efficiency at 12 mpg city, 19 mpg highway, and 15 mpg combined – but who cares?

2014 Dodge SRT Viper Coupe Interior

The 2014 Dodge SRT Viper was created for the track, which is obvious once you get inside the car. A low roof line means taller drivers may have trouble getting comfortable, and rear visibility is limited. The seats are narrow and firm, and 6-point harnesses are already installed – but that’s all to keep you put while pulling g-loads.

Otherwise, the interior is padded with soft touch materials in all the right places, and the dashboard is functional with an instrument panel that’s easy to navigate and read. The central display is particularly easy to use and adds high-tech appeal to the Viper’s high-end interior.

2014 Dodge SRT Viper Coupe Safety

The 2014 SRT Viper comes standard with antilock disc brakes and stability and traction control. An available Uconnect system links drivers to emergency services and roadside assistance. A rearview camera comes standard on the GTS Viper, and is standard on the base.

When you go from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds, stopping ability is just as important as the acceleration is, and in Edmunds brake testing, the Viper came to a stop in a respectable 110 feet. Add the optional lightweight wheels and stickier tires, and the Viper can come to a stop in just 101 feet – excellent for a sports car.
