The hand-built Viper coupe is a thing of beauty. Although there are other high performance offerings running around, a Viper is guaranteed to turn heads. Those heads will be turning fast as the Viper coupe makes good use of its vaunted 500/500/500 engine: 500 cubic inches, 500 horsepower, and 500 lb-ft of torque. Dodge claims sub-4 second 0-60 times, and a 0-100-0 run in the low 12 second range. The fixed roof in the coupe results in a stiffer car and the improved aerodynamics create more downforce. If you need help rationalizing, consider that the coupe has a larger trunk and "double bubble" roofline faciliatates wearing a helmet.
Coupe version of the Viper re-appears after a 3 model-year hiatus. The coupe shares hood, front fender and doors with the convertible. The coupe adds a "double bubble" roof that facilitates driving with helmets.
"Demand for a Dodge Viper Coupe started the day we introduced the Dodge Viper SRT10 Convertible for 2003. The all-new 2006 Dodge Viper SRT10 Coupe is a natural evolution of the heritage of the Dodge Viper, and gives enthusiasts exactly what they're looking for in the ultimate American sports car. -- Dan Knott, Director, Street and Racing Technology (SRT), Chrysler Group.
