Review of the 1998 Dodge Viper

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Speed, power, looks, handling. The Viper is the ultimate babe magnet.

  • Cons

    Poor city gas mileage, and, ummm...not very practical is it? The Viper is the ultimate cop magnet, too.

  • What's New for 1998

    Tubular, stainless steel exhaust manifolds help reduce emissions and weight. Silver Metallic paint is a new option and the powerful Dodge gets a passenger airbag cutoff switch and second-generation depowered airbags.

Vehicle: 1997 Dodge Viper

This is my 2nd Viper. I purchased a 1994 RT/10 in '97 and enjoyed the car both on and off the track. Track experience was with the IL Region Viper Club of America. Which included drag racing, autocross and road racing events. My most recent Viper is the '97 Coupe. Much more refined, better handling, more power, and better aerodynamics. I have installed about $15k worth of aftermarket to increase performance. This includes BIG brakes, alum. flywheel, short shifter, hi-ratio roller rockers, smooth tubes, headers/catback exhaust, 3:55 gear, rollbar and fire extinguisher. Car is still street legal, good manners, and all amenties such as air, pwr wndows, stereo, etc. Run 11's in qtr!

I have owned the car since new for 6 years now. Eevn now, after all that time, the power and handling of this car still amazes me. This car IS NOT recommended for the faint of heart, posers and Wusses - I recommend a Ferrari for those people.

The Dodge Viper SRT10 is hand-built at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit. It will go on sale this fall. It has forged aluminum wheels....
