2010 Dodge Viper review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview
The Viper SRT10 is part of an elite group of exotic performance roadsters. The Viper remains a purist’s dream, and it comes in coupe and convertible models. The vehicle’s main competition is the Chevy Corvette and the Porsche 911.

New for 2010
The Viper has no significant changes for 2010.

The Viper SRT10’s hood features gill-like vents on either side of the central scoop. Forged aluminum wheels in three styles are offered; they measure 18 inches in front and 19 inches in back.

  • Hood with functional air intake and extractors
  • Standard remote keyless entry
  • Optional American Club Racer edition improves aerodynamics
  • Four new colors are available, including Anaconda Green Pearl and Viper Bright White

The aggressively bolstered bucket seats are covered in leather with suede inserts, and the instrument panel is dominated by a large white-faced tachometer. The center console bezel houses a pair of recessed window switches. The Viper seats two people.

  • Standard air conditioning and power locks, windows and mirrors
  • Standard leather-wrapped steering wheel, shift knob and parking brake
  • Standard black suede/leather seats

Under the Hood
The Viper’s engine has variable exhaust-valve timing. The Viper SRT10 can reach 60 mph from a standstill in less than 4 seconds and complete the quarter-mile in the low 12-second range. Additionally, the vehicle can brake from 60-0 mph in less than 100 feet.

There is also a street-legal track package called American Club Racer, or ACR, that helps reduce the weight of the stock Viper and provides race-ready hardware. It improves aerodynamics and adds a racing suspension.

  • 600-hp, 8.4-liter V-10 with 560 pounds-feet of torque (91 octane required)
  • Six-speed manual transmission
  • Fully independent front and rear suspension with dual stabilizer bars
  • All-disc brakes
  • ACR package uses carbon fiber elements to reduce body weight and adds a carbon fiber wing that Dodge says produces 1,000 pounds of downforce at 150 mph

Standard safety features include:

  • Antilock braking system
  • Smart key immobilizes the engine in a theft attempt
  • Security alarm

Owner Review

Best Viper Ever! I have owned 95 RT/10,1996 GTS,2000 RT/10 This is a serious performance machine, with over 600 HP on tap. Major improvements: Comfort, Ride, Handling, Precise shifter, climate controls and improved suspension.


Fastest Car I have ever driven

This is my fifth Viper and in 20 years Dodge has inproved the car every year.This year 5th gear is unbelievable where it used to be very flat.The transmision shifts like butter. The car has so much power even on moderate launches it feels like the car is lifting off the ground before you go sideways. I have driven these cars for 20 years and the 2010 is the pinnacle. Twenty years from now you will say I should have bought that Cobra. There is nothing like this. This car is not for the faint of heart or novices. It is quite amazing!
