Actually the acr is completely road legal and is a production car.
Fabian Pioro Apr 07, 2012
Acr is a race car. Come on. Stupid to even put it in the "production model" genre
Thomas Mackey Apr 06, 2012
A radical is not a street legal car. It's a race car.
Paul Gladman Apr 05, 2012
you do realize that this is just the base viper and not the ACR? the last ACR held the lap record for a while and this will be faster. just imagine what the ACR will do. i wouldnt take it over the lambo or ferrari but definitely over the GTR or ZR1
Thibault Leroy Apr 05, 2012
i like this car but somehow i feel like its disconnected from the previous generations :/
Matthew Reindorp Apr 05, 2012
Right, 1. There is a small place in everyones heart for an SRT if not then don't call yourself a car fan 2. I was looking for 700hp but you can't have everything 3. I'm a cold hard supercar fan and normally dislike U.S. cars but wow this I like...
Bob Turefannt Apr 05, 2012
In speed or really anything. Don't get me wrong, I love this car and it truly is amazing.
Bob Turefannt Apr 05, 2012
@Patrick, one, you would be wrong that it is the fastest production car to lap the ring. The Radical SR8 LM holds that title. And two, it is "no biggie" anyone can make a car go fast. And off the ring I don't think is really has any world records...
Patrick Schalk Apr 04, 2012
Guess Bob doesn't know this is the fastest production vehicle around the ring. No biggie.
Cody Matthews Apr 04, 2012
I see, Dan is from England. The place of bad teeth and American car hating. He wouldn't approve of the viper if it held ever record in the world.
John Serely Apr 04, 2012
@mikey yea I think I remember which a reticle your talking about, but there is over 250 on the first 4 pages alone. I did not add up the rest of the pages, but by quickly looking at the rest of the numbers, I think this is close or at 400 comments
Bob Turefannt Apr 04, 2012
@chad, I do agree that this is awesome car but there are cars with more impressive engines. to call this an engineering masterpiece would do injustice to other more impressive cars.
Patrick Schalk Apr 04, 2012
Hahahaha Dan I don't think you can call anything gay based on your hair and sunglasses.
Abraham Mendoza Apr 04, 2012
Come on Dan, that's the best you could do? Huh, guess that reflects how good the car is. No fault at all.
Mikey Jimenez Apr 04, 2012
A GT-R article got up to +300 comments.
Jackson Michael Apr 04, 2012
And read some of Dan J's comments. I honestly think he can't afford them and feels jealous.
Jackson Michael Apr 04, 2012
This looks like it will carry on the tradition of insanity passed on by it's predecessors. Git pumped.
John Serely Apr 04, 2012
BTW I would definitely take this over a ZR1 or a GTR any day
John Serely Apr 04, 2012
Wow, I've been using this app almost since it came out (I have not commented for nearly that long though) and I don't remember any article that has gotten more comments than this one. Almost 250 comments on the first 4 pages alone. Way to go guys!
Dan Rather Apr 04, 2012
Hey dont get mad at Dan he's just pissed because where he's from cars are tax and insured at such high rates that the best car he can afford is 1.6 diesel Skoda.
Clint Edwards Apr 04, 2012
And considering that 95% of all comments on this article have been overwhelmingly positive, I'd say plenty of people would want this "pile of yank crap"
No Pistons Apr 04, 2012
Hahaha god the stupidity is getting out of control!! The cancer is almost terminal. @dan j Why don't you go check out the lap times for the ACR and I don't know maybe some research, open a book and learn of its racing Dominance.
Justin Routh Apr 04, 2012
Hahaha Dan isnt even worth replying to. Too many ignorant people on here. I love the people talking smack especially when the Viper already runs the ring. I cant wait till this one goes around so these idiots can quit with all the bs
Clint Edwards Apr 04, 2012
Oh look, another attention whore. Just what we need
Alex Leu Apr 04, 2012
You never know..640hp car...girl with big chest...
Mikey Jimenez Apr 04, 2012
@Steven who buys car just to get girls... You have no game bro.
Dan J Tresham Apr 04, 2012
Another massively GAY car from the states. Who in there right might would buy this pile of yank crap. comments pls?
Dan Rather Apr 04, 2012
@ Steven that's total BS you'd be at 3rd base before you could even take the keys out of the ignition in a viper.
Pierre E Jean Apr 04, 2012
Lmao Steven is so right
Steven Wilson Apr 04, 2012
Nice car but one problem: Man: "Hello ladies, I drive a Viper". Woman: "a what?" Man: "An SRT" Woman: "a what?" Man: "A Chrysler product" Woman: "Get Lost" Give me a Porsche.
Clint Edwards Apr 04, 2012
@Patrick what gets me is how the same guy can call 650hp weak but call a 200hp 4 cylinder an absolute beast
No Pistons Apr 04, 2012
@pat Agreed Why do most gt3-1 race cars have large displacement yet around 500hp? Once you find out why you will realize why this is 8L at 600+hp
Kevin Rehbock Apr 04, 2012
First Robbie, you can turn off the TCS. Second, they needed to keep the power suitable enough for street driving. That V10 can make a hell of a lot more power and potential buyers wouldn't be able to handle it.
Jon Ashley Apr 04, 2012
Yes the viper has a big engine, but theres no other engine like it. Such unique sound and performance.
Patrick Schalk Apr 04, 2012
I love the HP per Liter argument. Cracks me up so much.
Robbie Mitchell Apr 04, 2012
While I love this car it's not the same machine it once was. The name dodge is gone. All the fancy traction control, abs, and other crap is added. Great car just not as good as its predecessors.
Thomas Mackey Apr 04, 2012
You do realize this thing beats the "engineering masterpieces" by miles right? Fancy isn't always better. This thing is a monster. And it's going to keep giving the beat down to the much more expensive competitor.
rmv4646 Apr 04, 2012
looks great. not even close to an engineering masterpiece...100hp per liter is easily achievable now. srt has a long way to go.
Mikey Jimenez Apr 04, 2012
And like William said the power band on these engines are amazing!
Mikey Jimenez Apr 04, 2012
I'm sure cause of the cafe standards SRT isn't aloud to go over a hp limit.
Jacob Baker Apr 04, 2012
Amazing, im scared of what the ACR and ACR-X are going to do. This is perfection. Well done SRT.
William Downs Apr 04, 2012
and high liter to HP is so it dosent just eat tires up, it makes the power bands actually useable.. that's why ft cars have big liter engine but usually under 500 HP... its all about the curves
William Downs Apr 04, 2012
for how good the viper is it don't need more power, I drove an old one and my god what a ride all the torque and no stupid computer to tell it not to kill u. amazing ride and a great expierence... hopefully this one won't let us down
Michael Kozlowski Apr 04, 2012
@ Michael. Nooo I know the torque is crazy good, most of any n/a engine. But the hp side I feel is a little on the lower end. I was just hoping for more around 700hp, especially with such a massive engine. But I'm still quite content with 640.
Mikey Jimenez Apr 04, 2012
Ya and It also weighs less then pagani's 7.3L V12, Lamborhgini's 6.5L V12, and Bugatti's 8.0L W16 so...
Bob Turefannt Apr 04, 2012
The liter to BHP is a little low to be a masterpiece.
Bob Turefannt Apr 04, 2012
Engineering masterpiece? Really good but not a masterpiece.
Mikey Jimenez Apr 04, 2012
@Michael my bad the ZR1 is supercharged oops...anyways you're right.
Mikey Jimenez Apr 04, 2012
@Michael the ZR1 has 604lbft
Michael Emery Smith Apr 04, 2012
@ Michael. It has the highest torque output of any naturally aspirated stock road car. More than enough power!
Abraham Mendoza Apr 04, 2012
Because Dodge didn't want FIAT to be totally in charge of the development of the Viper, so they split up into two part, with subsequent brands. The part that needed saving (Chrysler, Dodge) and the part Chrysler wanted total control of (Ram Trucks and SRT).
Thibault Leroy Apr 04, 2012
wait why is it not a dodge viper?
Phillip Holbrook Apr 04, 2012
About time I was reading about about this on another website about noon today.
Ayrton van der Westhuizen Apr 04, 2012
I have to keep reminding myself that its not called a dodge viper, its an SRT viper,still just love it
Dylan Bruder Apr 04, 2012
Watched the unveiling video live it was awesome gave me sweaty palms and I'm a vette fan the viper deserves it's place though glad to see it back
Thomas Mackey Apr 04, 2012
It held the lap record with 40 less hp. Just imagine what it will do with all that tech and 40 more hp and 600 ft lbs.
Michael Kozlowski Apr 04, 2012
Would have liked to see some more power but I'm still pleased with that amount.
Andrew Semak Aug 09, 2012
Just. Plain. Awesome
Bryan Wesly Pascual Jun 23, 2012
That's one hungry snake!!!
Russell Apr 13, 2012
Right, its supposed to look like it can eat you. Great design.
Humza Husain Apr 08, 2012
No one gets that the viper isn't supposed to look nice like a ferrari, its supposed to be aggressive and mean
Matthew Reindorp Apr 06, 2012
458... Really? How is there any 458 in this monster car?
Thomas Mackey Apr 06, 2012
Well that's good Cory cause it isn't a dodge. lol do kids read these days? lol
Erik Scherer Apr 05, 2012
Except for the vents, it kinda looks like a 458, from the front.
Jeff Bayura Apr 05, 2012
The front end looks the the concept Jaguar CX16
Cory Allen Apr 05, 2012
The front end is ugly, doesn't look like a dodge, the rest of the car is cool though.
Ben Arends Apr 05, 2012
@waldobeast jenxins: Read the article. Everything is functional.
Alanda Burroughs Apr 05, 2012
Beautiful! OMG...it looks even better than the original.
Wildabeast Jenkins Apr 05, 2012
This thing is gorgeous, except.. Are those fake hood vents next to the air intake?!?!
Ryan Delano Thomas Apr 05, 2012
Sweet Jesus that's good
Jackson Rojas Apr 05, 2012
Oooohhhhh yes, that's a good looking vuper
Jay Kolvenbag Apr 05, 2012
They want to use the italian flowing shapes but they dont know how to do it
Vince DeMasi Apr 05, 2012
I have to get used to it
Pompey Paul Apr 05, 2012
I think it looks like a devil car, I like it :)
Jason Reimann Apr 05, 2012
Looks kinda like an F12 berlinetta in the front. I think dodge could do better :(
Rami Wilson Apr 05, 2012
Mic Wong should be Mcwrong. Sounds like a new tofu burger at Mcdonalds!
Rami Wilson Apr 05, 2012
It has already been to the track you won't be disappointed. Go to DriveSRT.com and watch the video. The car is more powerful. Lighter more structural rigidity and more positive feeling steering. All this for the car that holds the Nurburgring record!
Jimmy Bartolotta Apr 05, 2012
It's not bad in my opinion. Sure the taillights could use a little change, but they're bearable. To me, I don't really like the front end. I think the headlights and grill/bumper don't look right. Don't get me wrong they fit the lines, but it just isn't that Viper look. I guess it will grow on me eventually though.
Lou Guerrero Apr 05, 2012
I'm a Viper guy and so far so good but I need a track day with ZR1, GT-R and 458 before I can sing its praises. If I know the Viper team the way I think I know them, I don't think I'll be disappointed.
e.m Apr 05, 2012
viper looks good front and back
Mic Wong Apr 05, 2012
The Viper, being a few US cars that I like, should look cooler than this...
Tomas Franquelli Apr 05, 2012
I'm glad they didn't change it. its still ugly and I won't like it by mistake. :)
Axel Larsson Apr 05, 2012
I think it looks great. I love the side exhaust. My only issue is that I feel like it needs more of a rear fender-flare. The rear quarter-panel looks too flat. But I'd still gladly own one!
Jay Jammage Apr 04, 2012
Don't like the corvette (callaway) style front end & headlights. Rest of it looks pretty gnarly for an American car
Rami Wilson Apr 04, 2012
The only cars made with more horsepower per pound are the Bugatti Veyron and Ferrari F12berlinetta rare air especially since the Bugatti is turbo and the both cost 5 to 7 times as much.
Jack Sittauer Apr 04, 2012
Wow.... Awesome can't wait to drive it in forza! Lol
Matt Moeller Apr 04, 2012
Perfect!!!! Good job SRT Group!!
Rami Wilson Apr 04, 2012
The best way to make high horse and high torque from a naturally aspirated engine. Smaller displcement OHC engines make good horse but no torque unless externally pressurized.
Rami Wilson Apr 04, 2012
You can't just look at hp per L. You have to look at ft/lbs of tq, valves per cyl. And wether or not it's naturally aspirated or pressurized externally. Torque gets you moving. Horsepower keeps you moving. large displacement OHV engines are........
Riender John Hoolsema Apr 04, 2012
Now now... After 300c. Jeeps and now this gorgeous viper.... Breathtaking... Well done Chrysler... Mad respect! Love the curve and the looks of it
Taggart Wilber Apr 04, 2012
They should have kept the old headlights, I don't like the new ones
Carlton Salmon Apr 04, 2012
I can see hints of TVR Cerbera in this shot. Lovely looking car though and they've done a good job of both keeping it looking like a Viper whilst making it look fresh and modern.
William Forgham Apr 04, 2012
Amazing in every way.
Mark Juiris Apr 04, 2012
All rise & bow your heads.
Nick Smith Apr 04, 2012
I like the aggressive front end
Jackson Michael Apr 04, 2012
I'm an American, but I don't like most American cars. This, however, is epicness to the extreme.
Matthew McKernan Apr 04, 2012
I'm not a big fan of american cars but I love the viper for some weird reason, and this looks amazing. I Would have this over a ZR1 any day.
Jeffrey J Lybarger Apr 04, 2012
Love it....sign me up
Dylan Bruder Apr 04, 2012
Open minded @dan I was just trying to rattle matt some the 86 was a joint project car between both and I'm sure it's a blast ive never gotten to see one but anyways enough of that enjoy the new viper!
Alex Leu Apr 04, 2012
I see a srt viper
Dylan Bruder Apr 04, 2012
@matt mainly all I was doin was trying to see what you'd say every article that I see that isnt an import you trash it I just feel you should try and have a more open mind to cars to an extent not that I'm saying you need to love them just be more
Kenneth Williams Apr 04, 2012
I'm not keen on the hood yet but the rest is good. The hood will grow on me.
Zach Sullivan Apr 04, 2012
And I just saw the racing version looks kinda like one of the old callaways
Zach Sullivan Apr 04, 2012
I see a Mercedes sls and a Ferrari California mix
Jon Ashley Apr 04, 2012
other than the busy headlights, it looks great. looks more like the 1997 GTS.
Dan Rather Apr 04, 2012
@Tony the SLKs headlights are far more square than this. What creases in the front? Do you mean the vents in the front for the oil coolers and brakes? Or the hood vents for cooling and better air flow through the hood? Those aren't gimmicks
Clint Edwards Apr 04, 2012
Not even gonna try to comprehend that previous statement
Imminentvictory Apr 04, 2012
All american with closest in appearance/proportions being the late panoz esperante! WINNING!
Will Peters Apr 04, 2012
American design, America made, American car
Abraham Mendoza Apr 04, 2012
Tony, this looks nothing like any car you just compared it to. I see no Aston, no Merc, nothing. It looks...Viper.
Tony Marro Apr 04, 2012
@dan. I should have said SLK headlights, I was trying to show viper a little more respect. Either way they look too feminine in that vertical form. But i still say the front is unoriginal with all the gimmicky creases.
Isaac Rezkalla Apr 04, 2012
@colby this viper kills the vette in looks they didn't fail they over succeeded this looks amazing
Dan Rather Apr 04, 2012
and the second generation MR2.
Dan Rather Apr 04, 2012
no good signs of it ever happening. With the exception of LFA and to some extent the IS-F(Still isn't as good as the M3) Toyota hasn't really made sporty cars in recent years which is a shame because they used to make such great cars like the Supra
Colby Church Apr 04, 2012
I could've done better. Really. I'm happy to see the viper fail in appearance though. More room for the Corvette to shine. :)
Dan Rather Apr 04, 2012
@Dylan... What's your point? It's well known that the 86 was engineered almost entirely by Subaru with exception of the fuel injection system. There have been rumors of Toyota coming out with a new supra since it ended production and there are still
Dan Rather Apr 04, 2012
confused with an Aston Martin. I would also suggest you look at an SLS again the headlights are a totally different shape than these.
Dan Rather Apr 04, 2012
@Tony what are you talking about the only similarity that you said is the tail lights. Btw that grill has been part of dodges design language for sometime now if anyone copied that it would be Toyota. Are you honestly trying to say you'd get this
Isaac Rezkalla Apr 04, 2012
If this is the coupe i wonder what the acr specs and look would be
Zaire Wilkins Apr 04, 2012
i like it its clean
Cody Matthews Apr 04, 2012
I'm sorry but I can't get over the grill. I loved that part so much!
Tony Marro Apr 04, 2012
What is that... An M-B SLS (headlights), a scion fr-s (grille), or an Aston Martin (tail lights)? Oh it's a viper! Shouldn't a viper look nothing else on the road, not everything else on the road? Fail.
Matt Piccolo Apr 04, 2012
@ Dylan... What's ur point, Toyota just came out with a sports car, their are roomers of a new supra... And Lexus has the lfa ( yea I know it's over priced) and they have the new concept thats outta this world nice!! So I bet of they make 1, well ya.
rockstarTc Apr 04, 2012
Wow hands down this looks better than any car chevy has made. This looks so aggressive, this is why dodge is the best domestic company!!!
Mike Conrad Apr 04, 2012
Really glad it doesn't look American
Bob Turefannt Apr 04, 2012
Wow this looks really good! I'm glad to see that the viper is going to Be back on the roads and looking better then ever.
Rami Wilson Apr 04, 2012
My new second favorite car. Watched on driveSRT today, unbelievable. '96-'02 GTS coupe with Ferrari flair! Nurburgring lookout. Make mine Blue with white stripes red and black interior and a Dodge badge!
Pablo Herasme Apr 04, 2012
*Ferrari* btw this is a-MAZING
Pablo Herasme Apr 04, 2012
Looks like something would build
Domi Bsaibes Apr 04, 2012
Sorry chevy fans but this beats the vette in every single aspect! Very nice job dodge
Clint Edwards Apr 04, 2012
I want this in the worst way
Abraham Mendoza Apr 04, 2012
Your not a fan of the Dodge Viper, your a fan of the SRT Viper, so its okay.
Alex Bouckley Apr 04, 2012
Holy crap. That is crazy!
NalaKing Apr 04, 2012
Oh no!! I am never a fan of Dodge Viper. Now i am one of them!!
Paul Lissona Apr 04, 2012
Nothing dated on this at all, that's crazy. This car looks really good and tough like it should be.
alpinab3 Apr 04, 2012
Nice Car !!!!!!!!! :)
Isaac Rezkalla Apr 04, 2012
I wonder what it will look like in blue and white racing strips
Justin Routh Apr 04, 2012
Hey matt lets see the gtr against this
Mikey Jimenez Apr 04, 2012
The front splitter would look better in black IMO.
Kyle Schott Apr 04, 2012
If I won the lottery...
Mikey Jimenez Apr 04, 2012
Wow, I've been waiting for this all month and I got to say I wasn't let down! As for Matt, wow big surprise he doesn't like another American car.
Zachary Fix Apr 04, 2012
I didn't think it was possible but they did it they made the viper even better looking!!! And I love it
John Raymond Apr 04, 2012
The new supra will look dated
Dylan Bruder Apr 04, 2012
Hey Matt lets compare it to the new supra since you don't like it oh wait a minute..........
Zachary Sindelar Apr 04, 2012
Beautiful Job America and Italy!
Riley Gonzales Apr 04, 2012
Knew the teaser image was the rear window and not a hood vent
Douglas Orellana Apr 04, 2012
Looks so bad ass. Cant wait to see an ACR version of this!!
Cho Dan Apr 04, 2012
Lightning McQueen!
Theo Hubbard Apr 04, 2012
Wow. So fricking nice
quadrophine Apr 04, 2012
sexy as Hell holy crap I love it
Matt Piccolo Apr 04, 2012
And redid the front and back, but I hate the new rear so yea... As honestly, it looks like they transferred the agera's lights over to their car!! Like common
Matt Piccolo Apr 04, 2012
@ Paul, they do a bit, but they keep the overall shape, and front lights, but add different lines as curves, tail lights etc... This to me is a new front, identical sides. And ugly rear... So pretty much they kept 1/3 things identical, the sides
Ben Arends Apr 04, 2012
Glad to see the double bubble roof! Also, pretty cool that they positioned the motor to the passenger side to create perfect balance with just one driver. The 49.5/50.5 weight distribution is gonna be a killer. Can't wait to see lap times!
Paul Dickey Apr 04, 2012
If you think this looks aged I wonder what you think about every new 911 that comes out
Matt Piccolo Apr 04, 2012
And they soooo stole those lights from the Agera r... Their almost identical!!!! :(
Matt Piccolo Apr 04, 2012
It's nice but it looks aged... The fronts new and I like it but the sides and everything from the door back looks so old... It didn't change enough
Avery Williams Apr 04, 2012
Wow!!!!!!!!!! It looks menacingly!!!!
Patrick Schalk Apr 04, 2012
My only complaint is the splitter. Other than that, HOLY CRAP!
Rick L Apr 04, 2012
I'm impressed! Usually dodge puts crap out but this looks awesome. They are stepping there game up.
Rudolf Dassler Apr 04, 2012
Looks angry, looks great... My new favourite car from the states, except for the GT40..
Matthew Fenton Apr 04, 2012
Wow that looks amazing! 
Redge Diakité Apr 04, 2012
If you look the lights are like the Koenigsegg Agera but it's Wonderful!!!!
Chris Penza Apr 04, 2012
The front really has an f12 berlinetta evil look. I love it
Dillon Dixon Apr 04, 2012
Overall, I really like it. I was a bit worried. But they pulled it off!
Todd Randall Apr 04, 2012
I'm utterly disappointed! Take this monster to Jason Castriota to be reskinned!
Kevin Rehbock Apr 04, 2012
If this design was inspired by a naked woman on a beach, I must meet this woman.
William Downs Apr 04, 2012
thing looks amazing only parts I think should have changed are the grill because it dosent fit the car and looks horrible and I only say the headlights cause it gives it a vette look.. but still amazing
Thomas Mackey Apr 04, 2012
That hood is perfect just the way it is. SEX is what this car says. Can't wait to see it destroy just about everything on the road. And for a fraction of the cost.
Alex Leu Apr 04, 2012
Are you kidding me? Viper and toned down do not go together
Jack Howard Apr 04, 2012
I think the hood needs to be toned down a little
Carlos Eduardo Benitez Apr 04, 2012
Oh my god.. Didn't think it would look that good
Thibault Leroy Apr 04, 2012
wow it looks alot better than the teaser shots! i like it!
Justin Routh Apr 04, 2012
I think it looks awesome
Domi Bsaibes Apr 04, 2012
It fed my fettish, i was hoping it'll look something like this
Oscar Galvan Apr 04, 2012
I will sell any of you for these. Hopefully it drives like the last generation.
Matthew van der Linde Apr 04, 2012
Please sell these in the uk!
Description: The 8.4-liter V10 is able to deliver those numbers due to a decrease in weight and the profile of the intake lobes was reworked. There's also a new composite intake manifold featuring longer runn...

Lmfao. What. 16.4 means 4 turbos and a5.7 has 7?!?! Soooo lost dude
Adam Sampson Apr 05, 2012
Just a quick note as this comes up a lot and is the main thing that bothers me, OHV motors don't make more torque than OHC. The viper makes huge torque but that is down to its large capacity, and specifically large piston size.
Cho Dan Apr 05, 2012
@Bruce, The Bugatti Veyron is named after French racing driver Pierre Veyron, who won the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1939 while racing for the original Bugatti company. The 16.4 refers to 16 cylinders and 4 turbochargers. The engine is a 8.0 liter.
Alanda Burroughs Apr 05, 2012
@ Bruce. Sorry dude...but you're totally wrong. LOL!
David Harris Apr 05, 2012
It's a 16 cylinder with 8 liters and true it would make the car heavy
Abraham Mendoza Apr 05, 2012
Bruce, a 16.4 litre engine is as big as a bus. You can't be serious.
Aaron Abely Apr 05, 2012
Bruce, you're wrong. The veyron motor is a 8.0L(aka 488 Ci or cubic inches this is the size of the motor) W16 that is quad turbocharged. The 16.4 is Bugatti marketing the cylinder count and 4 turbos. Usually yes the 1.x or 3.x is size. But not here.
Bruce Malpica Apr 05, 2012
You seriously can't be this dumb like seriously. I'm not being sarcastic. 16.4 is the size. Yeah it's a 16 cylinder and has 4 turbos but it's the size of the engine not the "description". So what you're saying that a 1.8l car has 1 cylinder and 8 turbos? Think about it look it up. I know I'm right and so does smart people who know about cars.

OHV engines: less parts, slower moving parts, compact, light weight, lower center of gravity (helps handling) compared to SOHC and DOHC, usually a great amount of torque, and parts are cheap. Just a few great things that OHV motors offer.
Lou Guerrero Apr 05, 2012
And the reason for pushrods still is clearly for producing mountains of torque. At LeMans the GTS-Rs were unrivaled accelerating out of corners. It WORKS.
Lou Guerrero Apr 05, 2012
Thats like saying, "Lamborghini is just a tractor company." Yes, V10 has humble roots but the original V10 was developed in conjunction with Lamborghini to make it suitable for this car. The only problem was that it used to sit too high in the bay
Adam Sampson Apr 05, 2012
Hmmm so this 'engineering masterpiece' is still a tarted up truck engine. Why you would bother with sodium filled valves but still leave it with pushrod actuation I will never know?
Dan Rather Apr 04, 2012
I usually say V8 because people usually don't know what VR type engine is. Even car magazines with sometimes call a vr6 a v6.
Dan Rather Apr 04, 2012
Alright I'll call them VR8's sharing a crank does that work for you?
Kevin Rehbock Apr 04, 2012
Two V8s sharing one crank is still a V16. Learn what a W-configuration is. Every pair of cylinders in the Veyron is staggered at a smaller angle so it can be packaged more tightly. A real V16 would be seriously long.
Knox Ferraro Apr 04, 2012
Lobes WERE reworked. CarBuzz, you need to find a new editor. This shit is embarrassing.
Dan Rather Apr 04, 2012
Holy crap I need to sleep the Veyron is definitely 8.0L consisting of two 4.0L V-8s making it a w16.
Mikey Jimenez Apr 04, 2012
@Bruce 16 cylinders 4 turbos you should really look it up cause you're making your self look really dumb.
Dan Rather Apr 04, 2012
car that's a big deal because heat soak essentially causes you to lose power. A turbo system would add weight to the front of the car upsetting the balance. A NA car will usually have a smoother power delivery which makes the car more predictable.
Dan Rather Apr 04, 2012
As far as turbo's while they do add a significant amount of power they also reduce engine responsiveness causing delay in power delivery because the turbo maintain boost in order to make that power. Turbos are also more prone to heat soak on a track
Dan Rather Apr 04, 2012
Oh wow I feel like carbuzz commentary has hit a new low. People don't how engine displacement is written. 16.4L definitely stands for 16.4 liters
Bruce Malpica Apr 04, 2012
You seriously think 16.4 on the veyron refers to that? How about 2.0 3.6 on the gtr 8.4 on the viper? 8 cylinders 4 turbos?
Mikey Jimenez Apr 04, 2012
I stand corrected in 2 sentences.
Mikey Jimenez Apr 04, 2012
@Bruce haha wow I never seen so much ignorance in one sentence!
Abraham Mendoza Apr 04, 2012
Bruce, I sure hope that's sarcasm. I'll assume it is then...
Jon Ashley Apr 04, 2012
Thanks william! Anyone who wants to talk bad about engines should at least have the knowledge to back it up!
Bruce Malpica Apr 04, 2012
Idiot veyron is a 16.4 because it's 2 8.2liter v8 put together. Things you shouldn't say in a car app.
William Downs Apr 04, 2012
yea veyron is an 8.0. 16.4 reffers to its 16 cylinders and 4 turbos and everyone complaining about the engine size u obviously know nothing about engines except they make a car move
Thomas Mackey Apr 04, 2012
Yes you can make a 4banger and turbo it up to 640 but is it reliable? How's your power and torque curves? I can answer that for you....they are shit. Big displacement = easy and reliable. Plus your power comes right away. And don't even suggest a tt v6 in a viper. That is just wrong.
Abraham Mendoza Apr 04, 2012
Damnit Curtis, the Veyron carries an 8.0 w16. The Bugatti Royale carried a 12 litre engine, and it had the largest engine in a production car.
Alan Bradford Cassell Apr 04, 2012
Lame! 640hp from 8.4 liters? Sweet van engine. Junk
Kyle Anderson Apr 04, 2012
@Michael, 640 hp and 600 lb ft of torque from a ((N/A)) car is pretty impressive no matter who you are, I prefer N/A over turbo's anyway because it's pure, raw power without a crutch like a TT setup.
Mikey Jimenez Apr 04, 2012
Chevy makes a 632 C.I, I think around 12 liters or something like that
rockstarTc Apr 04, 2012
Haha 16.4 liter that would be one big ass engine
Cody Fullerton Apr 04, 2012
Anyone can turbo a car and get more power. Having that much power from an NA engine is very impressive.
Mikey Jimenez Apr 04, 2012
Really Curtis needs to do some research, Dylan is right.
Dylan Bruder Apr 04, 2012
This engine is for torque and alot of it and the 16.4 is cylinder count and number of turbos respectively this engine is much less peaky then a blown smaller displacement engine
Mikey Jimenez Apr 04, 2012
@Carlos except this engine weighs about 200lbs less. This 8L OHV engine probably weighs less than most performance DOHC so I don't why you guys are complaining. The displacement might be big but the engine is really compact.
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Apr 04, 2012
Thats a really big engine i mean the veyrons an 8L if i remember correctly
Phillip Holbrook Apr 04, 2012
I guess Ferraris should use a TT 4 cylinder too huh?
Clint Edwards Apr 04, 2012
Here we go, one of those guys again
Abraham Mendoza Apr 04, 2012
Hmm, that's some narrow minded thinking right there.
No Pistons Apr 04, 2012
Someone needs to do a little research
Paul Dickey Apr 04, 2012
You obviously know nothing about the viper. Or dodge for that matter.
Michael Beach Apr 04, 2012
The only thing that would make this engine worth having is a huge pair of TT's
Michael Beach Apr 04, 2012
An 8.? Liter engine that only makes 640 horsepower nowadays is dumb. Forced induction in a smaller engine would give the same (or more) power with much less weight up front. Typical Dodge move..
Luke Bailey Apr 04, 2012
I thought so too....
Forrest Wood Apr 04, 2012

will stability control stay off over 25 mph if engaged under 25? or does it kick on at 26?
Alex Leu Apr 04, 2012
Are you in any way related to ucla basketball recruit Kyle Anderson? Haha
Kyle Anderson Apr 04, 2012
Yeah it definitely has the most torque of any N/A car, second on the list to this is the 1999 Mercedes-Benz CLK GTR. Just in case someone wanted to know.
Zack Herzer Apr 04, 2012
"too complicated" that's what they said about the original one too, and the next. And the next.
Cody Matthews Apr 04, 2012
@rockstarTC you just have to do that to turn it off, then you can floor it and do what ever you want.
rockstarTc Apr 04, 2012
seriously?! Who would honestly drive around under 25mph in this car??
Michael Emery Smith Apr 04, 2012
And Aaron is right. It not the most hp it's the most torque. It's on TG's website.
Mikey Jimenez Apr 04, 2012
O snap I didn't see that.
Michael Emery Smith Apr 04, 2012
@ Jason. Your a tool! Read! It's just 25 Ibs off the engine. In total they shaved off about 120 Ibs.
Abraham Mendoza Apr 04, 2012
He said torque, and he's probably right.
Brandon Carr Apr 04, 2012
Aston Martin one-77 had the most powerful N/A engine in the world
Mikey Jimenez Apr 04, 2012
@Aaron I don't think this puts the most NA hp.
Aaron Crisp Apr 04, 2012
@Jason - This engine is legendary, puts out more torque than any NA engine.
Zachary Sindelar Apr 04, 2012
I hope they figure out that direct injection issue, it would really turn up this beast! I'm not complaining.
Jason Brower Apr 04, 2012
@ Jason, that's a mighty big claim to throw at the viper. That engine is legendary in it's torque delivery and it propelled this car to one of the fastest nurburgring times ever.
Ayrton van der Westhuizen Apr 04, 2012
yep a true muscle car: the only available transmission is a six speed manual, awesome
Jason Johnson Apr 04, 2012

I can't choose the Corvette over this and vise versa. In the end us GM and Mopar guy only care about 6 things, OHV, low end torque, 6 speed manuals, big displacement, bang for your buck, and low pitch rumble! so let's all get along.

Aaron Abely Apr 04, 2012
It is technically a front engine. However if you take into account how far back the engine sits in relation to the front axle it's truly a front /midship which translates to the higher rear weight bias. Plus diff and tank and 355s
Kenneth Williams Apr 04, 2012
This one is mostly in the rear because of the materials they made the front out off
Kenneth Williams Apr 04, 2012
Yea those things may be true but that's not always the reason for more weight in the rear. If you look at most regular cars weight balance it's mostly front.

Judah Lindvall Apr 04, 2012
And I do realize that they r somewhat different categories since one's NA and the other isn't. And ones awd
Judah Lindvall Apr 04, 2012
This is an honest question so please nobody blow up. What is better about this over a gtr? Cause they're about the same price. Is it just a preference thing or are there actual solid benefits to this car?
Edgar Jauregui Apr 04, 2012
That is true i rarely see anything other than ford vs. gm... Mopar's always cool x)
Abraham Mendoza Apr 04, 2012
I had no idea. That IS true, I do have mopar friends than Ford friends.
Mikey Jimenez Apr 04, 2012
Wow wow wow, Mopar guys and GM guys are the only ones that get along let's keep it that way!
Danny Scott Apr 04, 2012
Because of the interior I would put this thing in a whole different league than any plastic vette any day.
Thomas Mackey Apr 04, 2012
Ha! C7. Don't make me laugh. lol lol
Chris Penza Apr 04, 2012
It's worth every penny
Trent Bourgeois Apr 04, 2012
Until the c7 comes out next year.
Kevin Rehbock Apr 04, 2012
And those rear tires must be Z-rated. Nobody even has W or Y treads from the factory now.
Kevin Rehbock Apr 04, 2012
The Corvette just had its jimmies rustled.
Thomas Mackey Apr 04, 2012
DAMN! 355?! Now that is a tire!
Thibault Leroy Apr 04, 2012
pretty good price
Cham Khiev Apr 06, 2012
Take all the stickers and wing offa the racecar version and make it the production spec. Wayyy better
Dylan Bruder Apr 05, 2012
I'm not sure if they will make a gt1 car I know they'll make a gt2 car because mr.gilles said they're reentering the alms and since the corvettes chased everyone out of gt1......
John Raymond Apr 04, 2012
Lol at the rx7 comment. That would be awesome sell that body kit hell the hood on the grey srt is sexy =D
Cho Dan Apr 04, 2012
Looks like a 3rd Gen RX-7.
Kenneth Williams Apr 04, 2012
Yea if you like replacing that bumper cover everytime you drive
Jon Ashley Apr 04, 2012
Viper, back in GT1. Sweet!
Badoor Nasser Mobarak Apr 04, 2012
I'll take the grey one please ..!!
Josh Sutton Apr 04, 2012
That intake on the hood reminds me of a Ferrari 575.
Ayrton van der Westhuizen Apr 04, 2012
they should make that bodykit an optional package when u buy the new viper
Dillon Dixon Apr 04, 2012
The only thing that bothers me is that the headlights are almost exactly the same as the Agera R. I just can't get that off my mind.
Jack Howard Apr 04, 2012
Yeah it looks better now
Oscar Galvan Apr 04, 2012
Racing one looks sic!!!!
Alexander Pecheny Apr 04, 2012
Okay yeah I had my doubts from the past few pictures, but that is just sick.
Kabab Mashwi Apr 08, 2012
you know ot is sls not sms
Jason Villwock Apr 04, 2012
Head lamps are very SMS amg
Louis Valdivia Apr 04, 2012
Gabriel Just because your honda civic aint like this doesnt mean you cant hate on it...
Abraham Mendoza Apr 04, 2012
I'm sure a Fisker Karma is better than this. Oh wait...it just fell apart.
No Pistons Apr 04, 2012
Lap times and it being banned from GT racing due to its dominance speaks for itself
Mikey Jimenez Apr 04, 2012
It's kind of to take a guy serious when his dream car is a fisker karma.
Connor Wagner Apr 04, 2012
@gabrial U have some balls calling that beautiful car gross
Gabriel Ramirez Apr 04, 2012
Gross. Looks like the side of dodges new, and disgusting, charger. Front looks like a combination between a wanna be Ferrari and a corvette and the back is almost the same as the old one. Which was also gross. Step it up dodge please.
Michael Anthony Nascimento Apr 04, 2012
Nope, never liked it, still don't, never will.
Jason Brower Apr 04, 2012
Vipers have had the double bubble roof for a long time, it just happens to be more pronounced in this picture
Chris Penza Apr 04, 2012
It almost has the zagato butt roof
Wyatt Gordon Jun 12, 2012
Very nice, only thing i dont like is the headlights.
Lou Guerrero Apr 05, 2012
Would this look good as a roadster?
Matt Herbert Apr 04, 2012
now that is beauty
Bull Dogone Apr 04, 2012
Aston Martin influence on the tail lights!
Jason Anaya Apr 04, 2012
Side exhaust! I likee
Frederick Perez Apr 04, 2012
Way better than the previous model.
Dillon Magee Apr 04, 2012
I like it a lot. I think that it looks better than the old one.
Taylor Greenfield Apr 04, 2012
maserati granturismo lights.. looks amazing tho
Oscar Galvan Apr 04, 2012
I don't want people to take me the wrong way I love viper, and I will buy this in a heartbeat but I just can't seemed to like the back
Gabriel Ramirez Apr 04, 2012
From this angle it literally looks like it crashed into a corvette. The back window and roof line starts to do something interesting but the rest is just ugly.
David Tyler Apr 04, 2012
im with oscar i dont mind for the back :T
Robby Bradford Apr 04, 2012
This is the sort of looks that will build on you. Any new viper is an incredible car
Oscar Galvan Apr 04, 2012
As much as I like the viper and I try to like this one I don't like the back
Fabian Pioro Apr 07, 2012
Lol yea! Put wooden wheels on it and make it even more of a drivers car! Since when was a BETTER performing car become harder to drive? Maybe add some algebra in at the same time?
Alanda Burroughs Apr 05, 2012
Forget an F12...give me this! A real driver's car...not a frikin robot!
Elijah McCord Apr 04, 2012
Needs two tone seats
Fabian Pioro Apr 07, 2012
It's a Hanson brother!
Das Stig Apr 05, 2012
My friends dad was the head engineer in designing the head unit! There putting in ferraris too, I think f12 already has it.
Alex Preston Apr 05, 2012
Manual gearbox THANK GOD!!!! :D
Andrew Grimm Apr 05, 2012
What do you think that big red button near the place an ignition would be is? A self destruct button? It's the push start.
Aj TheDark Artist Apr 05, 2012
@Ashen Please explain to me how this is a lamborghini copy.....
Aj TheDark Artist Apr 05, 2012
@Emmanuel Why? The last gen viper was a push start. Why b mad?
Emmanuel Irizarry Apr 05, 2012
If it is I will be mad... But I think I can let it slide just cuz
Emmanuel Irizarry Apr 05, 2012
Is it a Push Start?
Emmanuel Irizarry Apr 05, 2012
@ Lawrence. Not "IF", but WHEN
Tim Preisinger Apr 04, 2012
Wow... The interior is much nicer then I thought it would be. Amazing job all around
Carlton Salmon Apr 04, 2012
Glory be...a manual!! So glad there's no flappy paddle option on this, a Viper is all about the physical interaction between driver and car - anything other than manual just wouldn't be the same.
Nick Christensen Apr 04, 2012
Look great....actually!
Imminentvictory Apr 04, 2012
Finally an interior to match the performance! Kudos to mopar!
Ashen Fonseka Apr 04, 2012
Lamborghini copy
Jamie Mcpherson Apr 04, 2012
Very nice interior, Chevys gonna have to step there game up with the next corvette!!
Tin Nguyen Apr 04, 2012
Big improvement!
Danny Scott Apr 04, 2012
Very happy that they stepped up the interior in this! Car looks very very sweet
Patrick Schalk Apr 04, 2012
Incredible. This is amazing. Fantastic job SRT.
Jay Mauran Apr 04, 2012
At least Ferrari didn't put all those stupid switches on the steering wheel
Kevin Rehbock Apr 04, 2012
The new interior layout is just a bonus that comes with the bone jarring performance. Now they should go out to the Nurburgring and post a sub 7-minute lap time.
Tara Fitria Apr 04, 2012
Definitely fits the msrp more so than the last gen vipers. Bravo srt, you really made a great car on paper and in pictures.
Dillon Dixon Apr 04, 2012
I do love the interior though. Fantastic job on it.
Paul Trahan Apr 04, 2012
Viper interiors have always been simple. Everything you need a not much else. Ever been I. A first Gen Viper? This is a luxury hotel room with taliored made suites compared to a first gen Viper.
Thomas Mackey Apr 04, 2012
It's a viper. Simple is good. Nobody wants a busy interior. Sleek. Simple. Looks fantastic.
Thibault Leroy Apr 04, 2012
i like the interior but it looks a bit too simple
Lou Guerrero Apr 05, 2012
There's not much room between the brace and those covers. Does the V10 have solid mounts to reduce the torquing of the engine?
Andrew Grimm Apr 05, 2012
I guess it may just be the color of the metal.
Andrew Grimm Apr 05, 2012
Is it just me, or does every alternator I see just looks ugly, dirty, and really old looking? Like on this one, I would expect it to look fantastic and clean because it is a brand new engine, but I think it just looks like it is dirty or something.
Andrew Grimm Apr 04, 2012
That's not a lot of plastic. The only plastic that is there is covering the headers. it probably has a heat shield under it. But still, it would be nice without it
Thomas Mackey Apr 04, 2012
Only plastic is where the name viper is on.
Dillon Dixon Apr 04, 2012
Still a lot of plastic, but knowing the beast that is under it it doesn't bother me too bad.
