The 2014 Dodge Viper may have been updated since its first generation, but it hasn’t truly been tamed, and Viper fans should be just fine with that. The first generation of the Viper became known for providing a truly thrilling driving experience, with a V-10 powerplant that provided a lot of acceleration and speed, without the safety net of a stability control system. Autobytel’s Road Test Editor Aaron Gold checked out the second generation, the 2014 Dodge SRT Viper GTS. As tested, the car rings up at $122,385, a price that buys 640 horsepower and 600 lb-ft. of torque. Like the first generation, the 2014 Viper still boasts an aggressive V-10 engine. It’s got an 8.4-liter unit that can make the 0-60 sprint in just over 3 seconds. The new SRT Viper has the safety features that were notably absent from the earlier generation, thanks to a federal mandate requiring electronic stability control systems in all new cars. To save weight, carbon fiber components were used throughout the Viper’s construction, helping to emphasize the car’s acceleration and deceleration capabilities. Autobytel’s GTS trim test car featured an upgraded interior with high-bolstered sport seats and a leather-trimmed dash. Don’t worry, though, because the 2014 Dodge SRT Viper GTS still prioritizes performance over comfort, making this a true American supercar.
