2005 Dodge Viper - Price Quote

Visit Dodge for more information on the Dodge Viper.

As fast as they can possibly (and more than likely, legally) come, the Dodge Viper is an extreme car for people with extreme tastes. Of primary concern for these people is the desire to move quickly, and the Dodge Viper can certainly satisfy this desire.

The Viper is the fastest car in the Dodge stable. It gets up to 60 mph in mere seconds, and stops you equally as quick. But really, words simply can't do the Viper justice. You just have to drive one yourself.

Available Models
The 2005 Dodge Viper is available in one SRT-10 model, with no options.

Interior Features
At the center of the action is the driver. This is evident throughout the cockpit, which features a performance-oriented, highly functional instrument panel with a center-mounted tachometer and a 220-mph speedometer.

As mentioned, there are no options. Standard features include air conditioning, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, power-adjustable pedals, leather/faux-suede upholstery, power mirrors, windows and door locks, remote keyless entry and an AM/FM radio with in-dash 6-disc CD player.

Exterior Features
Advanced materials such as resin injection molded (RIM) and sheet-molded composite (SMC) panels are used extensively to reduce road and engine noise. A true convertible, the Dodge Viper top is a bi-fold design with a single center latch on the windshield header.

The 2005 Dodge Viper SRT-10 rides on forged aluminum, polished 18" x 10" front and 19" x 13" rear wheels, clad in Michelin zero pressure run-flat tires. Each tire includes low-pressure sensors in the valve stems.

The Viper also has Xenon high- and low-beam headlamps. For 2005, Viper gets two new colors: yellow and, due later in the year, Copperhead Orange.

The heart of the Viper is an aluminum-block 8.3-liter V10 engine. It can generate an incredible 500 horsepower and 525 lb-ft of torque-90 percent of the torque available in the 1500-to-5600 rpm range.

Transferring the Viper's power to the rear wheels is a heavy-duty 6-speed manual transmission. It has a short-throw shifter so that you can get up to speed very, very quickly.

Further features aiding the Viper's performance include four-wheel independent suspension featuring lightweight, high-performance aluminum control arms and knuckles, damped by lightweight coil-over shock absorbers. A Dana 44-4 Hydra-Lok speed-sensing limited-slip differential is also standard.

Safety and Security
The Viper uses 14-inch brake rotors gripped by Brembo 44/40 dual opposing piston calipers in the front and Brembo 42/38 dual opposing calipers in the rear. This system results in a world-class braking performance of 60 mph to zero in less than 100 feet.
