Dodge viper gts r

The all new 2017 Dodge Viper GTS, built in Detroit, combining the latest technology in aerodynamic, tire and braking technology is a perfect example of a line of high-performance dragsters that keeps getting better by the day. Some of us can remember the predecessor to this racing beast from it’s iconic performance in the early 2000s. And car enthusiasts will readily tell you that the Dodge Viper GTS line is all about superior acceleration coupled with a balanced handling. This is not any different with the 2017 generation. If anything, the speed monster has gotten better if not peaked its possible zenith.

The exterior

From the outside, it’s clear that the GTS engineering team behind the production of the 2017 Dodge Viper GTS took their time making sure that the car was as eye-catching as it was powerful. The chassis, aerodynamic, and the Pirelli-branded wheelbase are designed with maximum grip in mind. Furthermore, the previous model’s broad shoulders with an angular tapering lined hood returns in this new generation, reminding us yet again that no one does it better than Dodge when it comes to constructing iconic supercars. In fact, If the exterior is anything to go by, the new Viper looks like an air-to-surface missile but on turbo-powered wheels. And since it’s predominantly carbon fiber bodied, the 2017 Dodge iteration appears intimidatingly powerful especially when combined with the removable hood louvers.

Track and engine performance

It’s no secret that the 2017 Dodge Viper GTS is built and highly priced for its superior aerodynamic performance. With a top speed of 177mph the Dodge is literally a bullet on wheels, that is if you are brave enough to cruise at that speed. However, it is the massive 8.4-litre V-10 valve engine that is rated at 646 horsepower and managing a 600lb feet torque that sets the Viper apart from it’s counterparts in this bracket. What’s more, the exhausts tips are crafted and placed in such a way that they provide a naturally aspirated Dragster track duty. Combine this with the high-performance uniquely thread tires and you have yourself a sports car-cum-dragster with one of the best handling capabilities in the auto world.

Speaking of handling, the 2017 Dodge Viper GTS utilizes what the manufacturer has christened as DampTronic selectively enhanced shock absorbed with street racing settings. Apparently the handling system emanates from a single mode high-performance suspension, backed by a five mode electronic stability system. According to track tests conducted by an independent body, the 2017 Dodge Viper GTS is five times easier to hand under almost any operating condition compared to the average racing automobile or sportscar.

The power behind this powerfully built car emanates from a six speed manual transmission system aided by a Brembo braking system thereby guaranteeing a firm and confident stop in a variety of track conditions.Finally, the single exhaust is crafted and placed in the typical street racing-inspired side position, offering you a greater aerodynamic balance and with an aggressive sound to match.
