CR Model Summary
For 2015 the Viper gets a slight power bump to 645 hp from the all-aluminum, 8.4-liter V10, though the six-speed manual is unchanged. This generation SRT Viper is about 100 pounds lighter than the last model, and is designed to appeal to buyers of $100,000 sports cars who want super high performance along with an upscale, more substantial interior. Three versions are now offered: base, GT, and the upscale GTS. No matter what trim, the Viper is still a loud and brash machine that's all about brute force. It requires a skilled driver to bring out its potential.
