Overview

The original Dodge Viper captured lightning in a bottle when it debuted in 1992. Combining ground-shaking V-10 American muscle and a chassis with European sports car handling, the Viper put America on the world’s supercar map. After 18 years of dominating its supercar rivals on the streets and on the world’s race courses, Dodge retired the Viper in 2010. But you can’t keep this snake in the basket. In 2012, SRT unveiled its new fifth-generation Viper to an audience of anxious enthusiasts, and this officially licensed book, created in cooperation with SRT, tells the whole story of how this car came to be—the inside stories, the proposed possibilities, and pictures of what worked, and what didn’t. SRT Viper explores the car’s full history, including the roles Bob Lutz and Carroll Shelby played in the original Viper’s development and recounts the Viper’s wins at such hallowed tracks as Le Mans and Daytona. It’s the full story of how one of the most amazing “halo” cars ever created has become an automotive legend.
