A new Viper will be slithering around for 2003. Although instantly recognizable as a Viper, the new Convertible sports more angular lines and sharper creases. The aluminum OHV V-10 now displaces 8.3L and cranks out 500 bhp/500 lb.-ft. Tires sizes of P275/35ZR18 and P345/30ZR19 (F/R) ensure that the power gets to the road. ABS ensures drama-free stops. A 6-speed manual is the only transmission. The Viper goes on sale August 2002.
The new Viper maintains the 'take no prisoners approach.' Dodge has the ultimate sports car. We've always been willing to do whatever it takes to retain that standing. If it means a new level of engine performance, handling, or braking, we will do it." - Tom Gale
