2010 Dodge Viper SRT10 news, pictures, and information
The ultimate American performance car icon: Dodge Viper SRT10For the final year of production for the current generation Dodge Viper SRT10, Dodge plans to deliver a vehicle lineup like no other since the introduction of the iconic American sports car in 1992.
The heart of the 2010 Dodge Viper SRT10 remains the venerable 8.4-liter (510 cu. in.) V-10 engine that produces 600 (450 kW) horsepower and 560 lb.-ft. (760 N•m) of torque. Benchmark performance numbers, including 0-60 mph in less than 4 seconds, quarter-mile time in the mid 11-second range and 0-100-0 mph in 11 seconds flat and a top speed of 202 mph, continue to prove how the serious, race-inspired, street-legal two-seater performs without apology.
Body style offerings remain unchanged wîth the availability of Roadster and Coupe models along wîth the ACR (American Club Racer) package. Approximately 500 vehicles will be built for the 2010 model year.
With the introduction of two new exterior colors, Toxic Orange Pearl Coat and Bright Silver Metallic Clear Coat, Dodge Viper SRT10 is now available in 12 different colors, the most regularly available choices in one model year. And wîth six stripe options in the new wider configuration, five different interior color combinations, four different wheel choices and three available interior bezels; the 2010 Viper SRT10 will be available in more than 7,600 combinations — the most for any one model year — significantly adding to the exclusivity of each car like never before.
New across the Viper lineup is a shorter fifth gear ratio (changing from 0.74 to 0.80) for improved high-speed acceleration and higher straightaway speeds. Acceleration from 0-200 mph has improved by 14 seconds. This improvement is a direct result of the Chrysler Group LLC Street and Racing Technology team's experience at the 12.9-mile Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit in Germany, where during the lap-record run in 2008, it was found that a revised gear ratio would have resulted in higher top gear acceleration and a quicker lap time.
|Engine : 8.4 L., 10-cylinder|
Power: 600 hp
Torque: 560 ft-lbs
The Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR receives a new short-throw shifter in 2010 for enhanced driver experience and better performance. The rear wing profile and end plates are redesigned to further optimize the vehicle aerodynamics and improve rear yaw downforce. These changes, combined wîth the new fifth gear ratio, result in an increased top speed of 4 mph (to 184 mph for the ACR model).
The enhanced four-wheel independent suspension features high-performance aluminum control arms and knuckles, and KW suspension wîth two-way adjustable competition coil-over shock absorbers wîth remote reservoirs.
The aerodynamic package features a carbon fiber 'fanged' splitter in front and adjustable carbon-fiber wing wîth seven-position stanchions that allow as much as 1,000 lbs. of downforce at 150 mph. Lightweight wheels, two-piece slotted StopTech brake rotors and Michelin PS Cup tires round out the Dodge Viper ACR package.
New Special, Limited-edition Dodge Viper Models
Numerous special, limited-edition models are planned for the 2010 model year, including the Dodge Viper ACR 1:33 Edition, which will pay tribute to the new production car lap record set on Nov. 24, 2009 at Laguna Seca raceway. The unique two-tone Black Clear Coat/Red Clear Coat exterior color scheme on this model is the opposite form of the original Viper ACR. Interior features include piano black console bezels wîth red gauge highlights complemented wîth red accent stitching in the seats. Only 33 cars will be produced as 1:33 Edition Viper ACR models.
Additional special edition models will be announced closer to their individual introductions.Source - Dodge
Dodge Viper SRT10®: The Ultimate American Sports CarThere is nothing else like the Dodge Viper SRT10®.
Offered in Roadster and Coupe models and the ACR (American Club Racer) package, Dodge Viper SRT10 delivers serious, race-inspired performance without apology.
With dramatic styling, 600 (450 kW) horsepower, 560 lb.-ft. (760 N•m) of torque from its 8.4-liter (510-cu. in.) V-10 engine, Dodge Viper SRT10 continues to set benchmarks for an American sports car by offering extreme performance including 0-60 mph in less than 4 seconds, quarter-mile time in the mid 11-second range and 0-100-0 mph in 11-seconds flat.
With the introduction of four new exterior paint colors, Dodge Viper SRT10 is now available in more than 150 paint and body combinations. Dramatic Viper design hallmarks, including deep-cut side scallops, swept-back fenders, lowered hood lines and the signature Dodge crosshair grille remain.
A Premium Tan Interior Package is available on both Coupe and Roadster models and features premium tan Nappa leather seats, tan center console, lower instrument panel and door panels. On the Roadster model, the package includes a matching tan cloth convertible top.
The 2009 Dodge Viper SRT's V-10 channels its power through a ZF Sachs twin-disc clutch that reduces rotating inertia by 18 percent, reduces clutch-pedal effort and improves engagement feel. Transferring power to the rear wheels is a heavy-duty six-speed manual transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)
Stopping power is another carefully developed part of the Viper SRT10 equation, wîth 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 60-0 mph in less than 100 feet.
Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR is the ultimate purpose-built, street-legal track car.
It's more than 40 lbs. lighter than the Dodge Viper SRT10 and offers race-ready hardware and competition tuning for optimal on-track performance.
