2016 Dodge Viper Exterior

The Dodge Viper is the epitome of American performance—and it definitely looks the part. Its unforgettable silhouette is designed for aerodynamic efficiency and balance at high speeds, which gives it a low stance and a sleek body. There’s no doubt that this car is a supercar. Sculpted bodylines work with a carbon fiber hood, roof, and decklid to offer consumers an exterior that is basically sex on wheels—but with a touch of elegance.

2016 Dodge Viper Engine

2016 Dodge Viper Performance

A powerful 8.4-liter V10 engine powers each and every 2016 Viper, churning out an incredible 645 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque. The Viper’s standard six-speed manual, which is the only available transmission, sends this power to the rear wheels. With this setup, the Viper GT can go 0 to 60 in only 3.6 seconds.
