The 2015 Viper sports car has been unveiled officially with added power and new special editions; and has also readopted the Dodge brand name.
The 2015 model lineup also adds a new GT variant, positioned between the Viper and Viper GTS models. Besides all the amenities of the entry-level trim, the GT adds a driver-selectable suspension and a five-mode electronic stability control system. 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.
If all that doesn’t sound enticing enough to choose the US built, hand-made supercar, then some new special editions might make you reconsider. There’s the Viper TA 2.0 Special Edition – based on the Viper SRT Time Attack – which comes with a fresh Aerodynamics Package that features front dive planes, carbon fiber front corner splitters and a larger rear wing for some extra down force. And there’s more: a race-tuned suspension, Brembo brakes and Sidewinder II wheels. Only 96 units will be made in three color choices: Competition Blue, Yorange and Venom Black.
We also have a 40 units Viper GTS Ceramic Blue Edition – it features just one exterior shade, the Ceramic Blue with black stripes and Rattler wheels wrapped in Black Vapor Chrome.
