2015 Dodge Viper SRT GTS Front End
On the newest episode of The World’s Fastest Car Show, host Justin Bell takes a look at the 2015 Dodge Viper GTS to determine whether or not it can be considered a supercar. To test this, he spends some time behind the wheel, and takes a look at the design and history behind the legendary sports coupe. According to Bell, to fall into the supercar category, there is a list of criteria that must be met. Lineage, design, power, performance, and craftsmanship all combine together to create an unforgettable package. Can the Viper meet those requirements? After taking a look at the Viper’s immediately recognizable silhouette, which checks off the design category, Bell moves on to see if the Viper has the muscle to match the aggressive appearance. With 645 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque from its monstrous 8.4-liter V-10 engine, the Viper has more than enough gumption to land it squarely in the path of more expensive and exotic metal from other manufacturers, meeting the criteria for the power category. The Viper is a stand-out in the craftsmanship category as well, as the Viper is hand welded, hand stitched, and hand built. Want your Viper to appear exactly to your specifications? No problem, as there are 25 million different combinations of color, wheels, and interior appearance options available to create your one-of-a-kind car. For lineage, the Viper brings racing credentials spanning back to the 1990’s to the table. Over the course of its lifetime, the Viper has seen three victories in the 24 Hours of the Nurburgring, three 24 Hours of Le Mans, and five-time FIA GT World championship victories. Finally, Justin takes to the Streets of Willow to put the Viper through its paces. The result? The Viper lives up to its supercar reputation, with a 0-60 time of just 3.3 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 206 mph. Watch Justin Bell test the Dodge Viper GTS in the video below.
