Dodge Viper driven
It was slated for destruction, but it’s back from the dead. And sharper than ever…

How it does so isn't a mystery once you look under the bonnet. There's an all-new air intake system, new valves, pistons, rods, block, catalysts - the lot. The only area of the Viper that feels like it's had more attention spent on it is the cabin. Instead of folding yourself into the squishy, comfy chairs, you slide onto the immediately more purposeful, tautly comfortable and all-business Sabelt-supplied seats.
Whatever they cost, these are worth it. But they are far from the only interior upgrade. The dials are now a super-slick TFT panel, there's a central 8.4-inch info touchscreen, and a tasty multi-function steering wheel. The gearshift is now a little easier to reach and quicker in action, and the pedals are adjustable for reach, unlike the tiller.
