SRT Viper: A more refined beast

With its no-frills approach to performance, the Dodge Viper had become an anachronism. The new one brings it into the 21st century with some classy touches.

The massive V10 engine, which is essential to the whole idea of the Viper, remains. This time, it's an 8.4-liter monster that puts out 640 horsepower and 600 foot pounds of torque. No fancy turbochargers or superchargers here, either.

There is one -- and only one -- transmission choice available. It's a six-speed manual. No automatics or paddle shifters here.

This car can get to 60 miles per hour in just over three seconds, according to Chrysler and, after that, can keep accelerating all the way up to 206 miles per hour.
