The Dodge Viper has been a hit with auto enthusiasts ever since it was introduced nearly 20 years ago, and for good reason! The large displacement V10 engine develops a huge amount of horsepower and torque and the exterior styling is unmistakable. Though the Corvette has always been a bit more affordable and perhaps a bit more user friendly as well, the Viper can lay claim to the title of America’s premier supercar with little debate! With a noteworthy and successful racing history ranging from Le Mans 24 Hour wins to ALMS wins at Daytona and Sebring and endurance wins at the Nurburgring and famous Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium, the Viper has proven itself capable of going head-to-head with some of the biggest names in motorsport!
It was bittersweet seeing this Dodge Viper RT-10 at our K1 Speed Torrance indoor karting center in Los Angeles, California, as the future of the Viper platform is up in the air. Production on the current model will soon end and there are no definitive plans to bring the car back (though Dodge may introduce the car’s replacement or the next generation in 2012). Nonetheless, it was great being able to exam one of America’s most iconic sports cars up close!
