2016 Dodge Viper Price, Coupe

Taking into account that the very first Viper was a convertible that came with a hard top, Dodge angered many of its enthusiasts when in 2013 they decided to release the 5th generation of the 2016 Dodge Viper as a coupe. Things are however going to change with the 2016 Dodge Viper Roadster. The car will for the most part be the same as the normal Viper with its roof replaced with a soft top that retracts behind the seats.

The 2016 Dodge Viper Roadster will be based on a platform similar to that of the coupe version. As a matter of fact, its whole interior will be exactly as that of the coupe version minus the roof. The soft roof that it features will result in a reduction of weight by a whooping 40 pounds. Its exterior can generally be described in two words, sporty and aggressive. A look that has gained the Viper model a lot of popularity among many. The cabin will feature two sporty seats that can be lowered even further to give a more realistic feeling while driving

Under the hood, the car will feature an updated version of the V10 8.4 liter engine which has for a long time remained to be one of the largest engines ever fitted into any production model. This beast of an engine will have the ability to generate close to 640 hp and a torque adding up to 600lb-ft. This will make it the most powerful engine (aspirated) in the whole world. Unlike its competitors however, dodge decided to couple the engine with a 6speedd manual gearbox and a rear wheel drive that adds to the unique driving sensation of the vehicle.

However, despite the fact that the engine is located at the front, it comes behind the front wheels. As such, it can be referred to as a front-mid engine which provides the car with an equal weight distribution. Courtesy of this, it can go pretty fast even while on roads with lots of turns and twists, and is able to outrun most of the cars in its league thanks to the Bembo brakes and the independent suspension. The performance of the 2016 Dodge is outstanding especially given the reduction in weight. It will manage to accelerate from 0-60mph in just under 3.4 seconds no matter the case as the very first gear will take you to 64mph. the top speed is expected to be 205 mile per hour.
