But is it a real supercar?
The Dodge Viper isn’t your typical supercar. For that matter, is it even a supercar? Believe it or not, some people don’t consider it to be, simply because it doesn’t come from an exotic automaker. That’s just stupid because the 2015 Viper GTS, for example, is powered by an 8.4-liter V10 with 645 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque. Dodge claims this is the most torque of any naturally aspirated engine in the world. 0 to 60 mph happens in only 3.3 seconds. And unlike most other performance cars of this caliber, the Viper can only be had with a six-speed manual.
What’s more, the Viper is hand-built in America and has looks that could kill. So is the Viper a real supercar? Justin Bell gets behind the wheel of a Viper GTS to settle this debate once and for all.
