The 2015 Viper sports car has been unveiled officially with added power and new special editions; and has also readopted the Dodge brand name.

Besides the new trim, the iconic sports car also boasts an upgrade of the 8.4-liter V10 engine. It’s now rated at 645 bhp (481 kW) and 600 lb-ft (812 Nm) of torque, up 5 bhp.
