2015 Redesign Year
Dodge Viper 2017
The redesigned Viper is powered by an all-aluminum, 640-hp, 8.4-liter V10 and has a standard six-speed manual. This SRT Viper is about 100 pounds lighter than the last model, and is designed to appeal to buyers of $100,000 vehicles who want super high performance along with an upscale interior and more civilized manners. Two versions are offered: the base and the more upscale GTS. The new chassis is said to markedly improve handling. The interior is also more upscale, something the last generation sorely lacked.

2003 Redesign Year
Dodge Viper 2010
For 2003 the Viper got its first redesign in a decade and became a more civilized and refined car in the process. The original Viper was a brute-force machine designed for the racetrack, available as a roadster or, starting in 1998, as a coupe. It was quick, loud, and brash, lacking even such basics as roll-up windows and exterior door handles. The tight, confining cockpit was furnished with cheap-feeling materials. Later models received some incremental refinements. The noise from the V10 engine was loud and not especially invigorating, and the clutch was extremely heavy. Handling was capable but lacked finesse. The Viper was dropped from 2011-2012 but came back as a 2013 as SRT Viper.
