2018 Dodge Viper is a sports car of the American car brand Dodge. In Europe, the car goes through life like Chrysler Viper. Following the merger between the Chrysler Group and FIAT, it was decided to stop production of Viper 4th generation. The production of the 5th generation has now begun. The fifth generation will no longer be produced under the name Dodge, but only SRT Viper will be called and the race variant SRT Viper GTS-R. 2018 Viper features an 8.4-liter V10 engine, which produces 649 hp and 813 N.m torque, this engine will be fully manually built.
The Dodge Viper was initially introduced in 1989 as a concept car at the North American International Auto Show and proved to be such that Chrysler developed production plans. The car and production car had quite a few differences, but the V10 engine remained. The production model appeared in 1992, and in 1996 there was also a closed coupe version next to the original convertible. Dodge Viper 2018 is a fairly raw and old-fashioned sports car; There was no air conditioning, electric windows or central door lock. Even handles to open the doors from the outside were not on the car.
2018 Dodge Viper SRT works with the Viper backbone by failing to downsize, they are still not using automatic gearboxes. While most of the cars with such high power are supplied with an automatic gearbox, you will still get a manual six-tier at the Viper. As a gearbox, a Tremec TR6060 has been chosen to have smaller ratios compared to the old Dodge Viper, which would make the car a more lively driving behavior.
2018 Dodge Viper Features
The exterior of the SRT Viper resembles that of the Dodge Viper, but there are a lot of differences. The bumpers are very different, the roof, the bonnet, and the tailgate are made of carbon fiber and the doors are made of aluminum, which has resulted in a considerable weight reduction. The new Viper is equipped with a “double-bubble” roof. This makes the roof very low, but there is enough room for the driver and passenger, even with a helmet.
The front and rear lights are provided with LED lighting. At the front are bi-xenon headlights that are assisted by LED daylight and LED flashing lights. On the backside, only LEDs are mounted. For the first time, the brake and flashing lights are placed in one unit on the rear. The fifth generation was launched as a project. But they did not want to raise awareness. They released this project under the name F-117; Like a fighter. The weight of the engine has decreased by 12kg.
