Dodge Viper SRT10

Ladies and gentlemen, let us present you the ultimate American sports car of the Dodge brand, the 2009 Dodge Viper SRT10. The model receives power from an 8.4-liter V10 engine capable of generating 600 horsepower. This incredible output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 4.0 seconds, setting an American sports car benchmark. The specialists will offer it in two body styles: Roadster and Coupe. Both have an interesting hood with a more efficient hood scoop for their induction and functional hood louvers to facilitate a greater cooling effect for the powerful 8.4-liter V10 engine that hides underneath. The exterior differences between the two styles refer to the body panels they share, the front fascia and fenders, hood and doors. The Coupe offers increased down force and high-speed stability with its sloping roof line and deck lid spoiler. The roof and headliner structure offer more room to accommodate a safety cage, while maintaining as much head room as possible. Inside the cabin we will find the same characteristic red push-button starter and performance-oriented, highly functional instrument panel with center-mounted tachometer and 220-mph speedometer. For the interior, the designers have prepared five colors. When it comes to engineering, know that the engine lubrication is managed by an oil pump and a swinging oil pickup adapted from the Viper Competition Coupe engines, to improve ail pressure in high-rpm and hard cornering conditions. To transfer the output to the rear wheels, the engineers have offered a heavy-duty 6-speed manual transmission. The 2009 Dodge Viper SRT10 rides on polished forged aluminum 18 x 10-inch front and 19 x 13-inch rear wheels, covered in Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 non-run-flat tires. So that you know, each tire includes low-pressure sensors in the valve stem. These are all the details we could obtain for you for the moment.
