Review of the 2003 Dodge Viper

  • Increased horsepower, improved handling and bigger brakes make for superior performance. And improved build quality doesn't hurt, either. But old-school Viper fans may be disappointed with the 2003 version's newfound manners.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Incredible performance, improved cockpit, limited production.

  • Cons

    No traction control or side airbags, extremely limited production.

  • What's New for 2003

    Dodge hatches a new snake with a real roadster body, scary output figures (how's 500 horsepower sound?) and improved build quality.

Fun car

Vehicle: 2003 Dodge Viper SRT-10 2dr Roadster (8.3L 10cyl 6M)

I have owned four corvettes, two 911s a 930 Porsche a Ferrari and the viper is my favorite, it doesn't ride like a Porsche but it handles better in the corners and just has the raw hp. Its watched where ever you go, hard to ride under the radar. The car is easy to work on compared to a Ferrari or Porsche and it is so much less to maintain when it comes to service and parts. It's a truly drivable car.




Awesome

This car has no equal for its price and performance. I waited for 6 long years to buy a Viper and I was not disappointed. This car is a street legal race car but at the same time, it is no harder to drive than a Honda Civic or a Saturn. There is this thought out there that this car is hard to drive, it isn't - only drivers who don't understand or know how to drive a true sports car. The performance is unbelievable. I understand now why everyone who drives this car has such a big smile on their face. There are certain cars that invoke emotion by just looking at it & this car is one of them. If you are a car nut and you get the opportunity to own one, do it. You will not be disappointed.

The SRT10 convertible is arguably the fastest production convertible known to mankind. I have owned previously a 1996 GTS coupe and it was fast with plenty of power. The '03 SRT10 is however even faster with more power and torque and incfredibly also much more driver friendly than its predecessor. It is a much more refined car than I would have thought. The top is a 15 second operation up or down and is simple to use. This engine easily overpowers the rear tires in first gear and during upshifts requiring throttle modulation to resist wheelspin. I have driven race cars, Ferraris, Lambos, and Vettes but none compare with the exhileration when stompiong the throttle of the Viper SRT10.
