Dodge Viper replacement to be revealed next month
The Chrysler automotive giant is working on a replacement for the Dodge Viper and the new American supercar will be revealed in November in Miami, during a charity event “Rides and Smiles”, before it will be officially presented during the 2012 Detroit Motor Show in January.
It seems that the American based automaker has done some serious research for their new Viper generation, after going to Porsche owners and other high-end supercar owners to ask them what is wrong with the Viper and why don’t they like it, so me might see some significant improves for the new model.
Chrysler automotive giant, based in North America, is already working on a new generation of the famous “over-seas” supercar, the Dodge Viper, and recent reports indicate that the vehicle will be powered by a new 8.7 liter V10 engine, which will definitely place it over the muscle car “segment”.
According to recent rumors which hit the automotive media these past days, the replacement for the popular Dodge Viper will get a new 8.7 liter V10 unit, and even if we don’t have any official details about it, it’s expected to generate over 600 horsepower and 760 Nm of torque or 560 lb-ft.
The new generation of the Dodge Viper is expected to enter production later in 2012, after the supercar will be officially presented at the next year’s Detroit Auto Show. Besides the North American event, it seems that the new Dodge Viper will debut in November during a Miami charity event called “Rides and Smiles”.
The Dodge Viper was originally introduced back in 1991 and it was actually one of the first V10 powered cars in the world. The vehicle was being assembled at New Mack Assembly.
The fourth generation of the Dodge Viper, the Phase II SRT-10, is powered by an 8.4 liter V10 engine which is developing 600 horsepower at 6.000 rom and 760 Nm of torque (560 lb-ft) at 5.600 rpm, mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
