After a short stint as the SRT Viper, the American brand’s top sports car is now a Dodge once more.
For 2015, the Dodge Viper SRT is getting five more hp, improved fuel economy and new trim and color options. The 8.4-liter V10 engine now makes a total of 645 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque, while the car’s fuel economy rating has been bumped up by one mile per gallon on the highway for a total of 20 MPG.
An all-new GT model is joining the Viper ranks for 2015, coming with driver-selectable suspension, a five-mode stability control system and interior upgrades like Alcantara and Nappa leather seats with accent stitching. The GT model will sit in between the two existing viper trim levels, and will be priced in the middle as well.
A special edition Time Attack (TA) 2.0 model is also being introduced, outfitted to run the fastest lap times possible. The car gets new TA 2.0 aerodynamics package that increases downforce to 400 lbs at 150 mph, race-tuned calibration for the suspension system, a lighter carbon fiber x-brace under the hood, two-piece Brembo high-thermal capacity brakes and Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. Inside, the TA gets racing seats that can accommodate a three- or six-point harness along with orange contrast stitching.
Three colors are available on the Viper TA, either competition blue, “yorange” or “venom” black. Only 32 units of each color will be made, meaning that 96 Viper TAs will be built in total.
There is also a new GTS Ceramic Blue Edition package which fits the car with unique exterior accents, a ceramic blue paint job, orange brake calipers and more. Inside, the car gets an Alcantara headliner, silver accent stitching, carbon fiber accents and special serialized GTS badges. Only 40 units of the GTS Ceramic Blue Edition will be made.
Along with “yorange,” Dodge has added stryker purple to the car’s color palette for 2015.
