The SRT Viper was completely redesigned for 2013, and in many cases, that would mean that follow-up models remain essentially unchanged. Fortunately, Dodge has not stopped improving this supercar. As a part of the vehicle’s traction and stability control systems, there’s now a Rain Mode setting, which is designed to help drivers who are still getting accustomed to the car’s capabilities, particularly when driving in unfavorable weather.
Rain Mode should come as a boon to those who are new to the Viper experience. While at the 2013 Best Driver’s Car competition, racecar driver Randy Pobst, said, “That Viper generates a lot of g’s. In every direction. It accelerates hard. It stops hard. It corners hard. And most of the things it does are quite sudden, and it is a full-attention car to drive. You have to be on the ball, on top of that car all the time.” It is, in other words, built for true driving enthusiasts.
Regardless of the conditions in which it’s being driven, the 2014 Dodge SRT Viper is formidable vehicle. Under the hood is a massive 8.4L V10 engine that’s able to produce 640 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque. This rear-wheel drive supercar can jump from 0 to 60 mph in less than 3.5 seconds. That kind of power is breathtaking, but drivers have come to expect nothing less of the Viper.
The 2014 Dodge SRT Viper will feature a base MSRP of $99,395, not including the destination charge and taxes. This number is shocking given the performance it offers. And while it represents a modest price increase over the 2013 edition, it also comes with a variety of standard features that were optional on the previous model, including HD radio, Uconnect, a rearview camera, and a 12-speaker audio system.
