It is interesting to see what the developers have in store for us concerning the 2018 Dodge Viper concept. Naturally, most of these changes are rumors and predictions, but they cannot be ignored either.
2018 Dodge Viper Release Date
The 2018 Dodge Viper is going to hit the road no earlier than late 2017, but there is no set date at this point.
Price for 2018 Dodge Viper
As for the price of the 2018 Dodge Viper, it is hard to imagine anyone without at least $120,000 on their account to be able to afford one. And that is only the beginning.
Exterior of Dodge Viper
Like it or not, all cars built for speed – the 2018 Dodge Viper included – have to follow a certain set of rules when it comes to body design.
This does not make them too similar, however, but all that carbon fiber and a low profile has to come before individuality.
But do not despair just yet, as there are plenty of details that make the new Viper stand out from the rest, making all those minute changes to the front and rear fascias remarkably important in their own right.
The new spoiler and carbon-fiber wing in the rear are going to generate even more downforce, while all the small details will make this car look and feel sporty, aggressive and elegant, even by sports car standards.
Dodge Viper Interior
The 2018 Dodge Viper is going to be a fast and sleek car, both from the outside and from the inside. As far as the latter is concerned, it should be pointed out that everything about the new Viper is geared up towards speed, and that means weight reduction to the extreme.
This is why it should be surprising to find anything on the inside that isn’t absolutely essential in some respect.
Apart from this minimalistic approach, there will be ample safety measures as well as improvements to the seats and the steering wheel.
Carbon fiber for the dashboard should come as no surprise, either. On the other hand, the finest Alcantara leather and the extra grip it provides makes it a perfect solution for the upholstery, so the classy and expensive vibe is going to persist, as will the wide selection of interior trims.
As far as engine selection goes, this is where all the obfuscation of the 2018 Dodge Viper comes into play. Unfortunately, penetrating this barrier has proven far more difficult (not to mention tricky) than expected, so our best guess at this point concerns an 8.4 L V10 with 660 hp and 610 lb-ft of torque, paired up with a 6-speed manual transmission.
Unfortunately, if you are hoping for an automatic, you may be disappointed. As for the exact specs, it is no wonder there are none to be reported on, but even considering all the minor tweaks and improvements on the chassis it is hard to imagine the old 0-60 sprint in 3.3 seconds getting any better. Shave the 0.3 seconds, perhaps? Also, the top speed of 200 mph should be attainable at this point.
