1996 Dodge Viper

The Dodge Viper was updated in 1996, the first major overhaul since its introduction in 1992. Perhaps the largest update was to the engine, which was now rated at 415 horsepower, a boost of 15 horsepower over the prior years. The T56 six-speed manual transmission with overdrive was unchanged. The original side-mounted exhaust system was replaced with a low restriction rear outlet exhaust. The car now rode on five-spoke forged aluminum wheels and (the first for an American car) Michelin Pilot MXX3 Maximum Speed-Rated tires. They also received a JTEC Powertrain Control Module, OBD II on-board diagnostic system, and a stiffer frame. The suspension received an all-aluminum setup in both the front and rear. The fuel tank size was reduced from 22 gallons to 19 gallons.

The Viper RT/10 came in two forms, a roadster which was priced at $58,600 or the GTS Coupe which sold for $66,000.
