The new 2017 Dodge Viper Roadster is some kind of conciliations of the manufacturer with the buyers who had been disappointed with last 2015 model. The thing is that Dodge made a model similar to 2013 coupe ignoring the expectations for a stronger model. This model, on the other hand, will make a comeback of the normal and well-known Viper, with chopped off the roof and replaced it with a soft top with all interesting and changed details.
Even the expectations also mean stronger with heavier chassis, that didn’t happen with this model, neither. As a matter of fact, maybe the only changes with this model are in term of weight when Dodge made a lighter car. Other details are pretty much the same as on the last model. The centered brunt in the middle of the car makes this vehicle stable and faster, but with stability and independent suspension needed for a big and strong car as Dodge Viper Roadster is.
Just similar to outside look, the cabin is also the same as on the previous model and being a coupe, there is no much important thing to say in term of the cabin equipment. We surely expect the most advanced infotainment system, with Bluetooth and USB connectivity, cruise control, a navigation system, rearview camera and adjustable, leather seats and steering wheel. As a robust and aggressive coupe, the 2017 Dodge Viper Roadster has to be large inside, too, with a lot of space for legs and knees. The only change from the last model is a rollover safety cage which pops out if it senses the car rolling over.
You will be surprised with the engine choice in this car – an 8.4-liter V10 for highest driving performances. The expected strength is 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque, which makes is the most powerful car on the Earth. You may expect the complicated transmission, but it’s maybe lower six-speed manual transmission with the rear wheel driving system. Don’t worry; the engineers knew what they were doing with it, making a stable car with really unique feel on the road.
