In order to keep sales and consumer interest high for the next 12 months, Dodge is adding new colours for their new Viper 2010 and by enhancing its perfomance and releasing several limited edition models.
Powered by a 8.4-litre V10 with 600bhp and 760Nm, performance tweaks include a new shorter fifth gear ratio (changing from .74 to .80). This has improved its high speed acceleration with the 0-200 mph run now dropping to a mere 14 seconds. The hardcore ACR (American Club Racer) model gets a new short throw shifter and aero tweaks for, yes, higher top speed as well!
Several limited-edition models are planned for 2010,but the first two special editions of the Viper include the ACR 1:33 Edition, which pays tribute to the new production car lap record set at Laguna Seca. It gets a two-tone black/red colour scheme, piano black console bezels with red gauge highlights and red stitching for the seats.
Meanwhile, the Vooodoo-edition Viper ACR features a Black Clear Coat exterior with Graphite Driver’s Stripe outlined in red. Only 10 cars will be available with this unique striping on both its exterior and steering wheel. Pricing and more special models will be announced later.
