1994 Viper on eBay for $37,000?

This one caught our eye on Twitter.

SRT Viper Breaks Cover

With all the debuts at the New York Auto Show, the new SRT Viper was the one everyone was looking forward to. Right away you notice the newly refined exterior, which is still raw, but harkens back more to the original Viper. But no one was worried about how it would look, but what would be powering it.

Recent federal safety mandates, emission controls, and general market pansiness threatened to strip the Viper of its fangs (warning: more tortured snake puns ahead). However, even with traction control and all the other necessities, the Viper still looks like it will be a ludicrous drive. How ludicrous? About 650hp worth from a V-10 motor. Yup, the Viper is back.

Plus, their going back to racing too. Welcome back Viper, it’s been too long.

2013 SRT Viper Teased

When we added the Viper to our “20 Cars for 2012 List” piece, not much was known about the car. Not much needed to be known. It’s a Viper; that alone is worthy of anticipation. However, to satiate our need for a bit more information, Chrysler has given us a teaser image of the new snake’s face.

As you can tell, not much can be gleaned from this picture either. But, we do know that behind those glaring headlights will, probably, lie a larger V-10 engine. We also know that this Viper will be under the “SRT” brand, not Dodge. Finally, the Viper will have traction control for the first time ever, as mandated by federal law. Traction control aside, the Viper will probably keep its fangs and be just as raw a driving experience as ever. Expect more information and tortured snake puns as the Viper comes closer to being revealed.

Viper Owner Invitational 2010.

The Eleventh Viper Owner Invitational (VOI) was held in Salt Lake City, Utah from September 30th to October 3rd, 2010. If you love Vipers this is as close to heaven as you’ll get! Our friends were kind enough to let us take a look at the weekend events and many of the out of this world Dodge Vipers. The main theme behind this Utah gathering is to celebrate the passion and unbridled enthusiasm of Viper Nation and it’s hosted by Viper Club of America. The turnout was strong with more than 350 Vipers, 750 guests, and a special SRT performance driving experience with the Challenger SRT8 and Charger SRT8 on an autocross course.

The Bullz-Eye Blog has a full gallery of images from this years Viper Owner Invitational. They’ve also got a few pics of the challenge event and the special appearance by the SRT8 Dodge Challenger. Enjoy the photos! Also, be sure to check out Lemon Free if you’re looking for a Dodge Viper for sale.

2009 Dodge Viper SRT-10 Test Drive

Our friends over at Insideline.com were lucky enough to test a 2009 Dodge Viper SRT-10 for six months. That’s right, six months of thrill rides all over the streets of towns all over the country. This beast is equipped with an 8.4-liter V10 that makes 600 hp and 560 pound-feet of torque. Have fun you lucky dogs!

While we were sitting vigilant on the front porch trying to keep our guns, the Government done snuck in the backdoor and took our cars.

“The last of the muscle cars!” “The end of the V8!” “We’ll never see anything this good again.” These tenets of the automotive world have been repeated and retracted more times than we can count, and knowing that, we’re confident in saying that this, the 2009 Dodge Viper SRT-10 is certainly the last of the truly bonkers muscle cars and the end of the made-in-the U.S.A. V10 in a production passenger car.

In a time when unintended acceleration and wild oversteer are dominating the headlines, a Dodge Viper in our fleet of long-term test cars makes perfect sense. With 600 horsepower available from an 8.4-liter V10, unintended acceleration and oversteer should be a daily occurence. And that’s exactly what we’re hoping for with our new Long-Term Road Test toy, the 2009 Dodge Viper SRT-10.
