Dodge Viper Summary

The Dodge Viper is not for the faint-hearted. This all-American sports car burst onto the scene back in the early '90s, delivering the largest production engine of any car alongside 400 hp. Focused purely on driving experience, the Dodge Viper also launched without any driver aid systems, airbags or even an automatic transmission. The Dodge Viper eventually evolved, gaining more comfort and safety features, power, and better handling—but it held onto a six-speed manual transmission until production ended in 2017.
