Dodge Viper RT/10 Roadster--D&M Motorsports Video Review 2012 Chris Moran
SEE OVER 100 IN-DEPTH AUTO REVIEWS @ www.SUPERCARNETWORK.com. A quick look
at a 1994 Dodge Viper RT/10 with Chris Moran. Presented by D&M
The Dodge Viper is one of the first V10-powered cars in the world, made by
the Dodge division of Chrysler. Production of the two seat sports car began
at New Mack Assembly in 1991 and moved to its current home at Conner Avenue
Assembly in October 1995. The car, and numerous variations, has made many
appearances in TV shows, video games, movies, and music videos[citation
needed]. Although Chrysler considered ending production because of
financial problems, chief executive Sergio Marchionne announced and
showed on September 14, 2010 a redesign of the Viper for 2012.
The Viper was conceived as a historical take on the classic American sports
car. The iconic AC Cobra was a source of inspiration, and the final version
of the Viper bears this out with its powerful engine, minimalist
straightforward design, muscular and aggressive styling, and high
performances. Some saw claims to kinship with the Cobra as a marketing
exercise, ignoring that Carroll Shelby was heavily involved in the initial
design of the Viper, and subsequent design of the Viper GTS coupe. Notably,
the later (1996 through 2002) Viper GTS coupe took a few design cues from
the Pete Brock designed Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe. Though the proportions
seem similar at first glance, the designs are quite unique. Carroll Shelby
was key in the development of the RT/10 as well as having a hand in the
development of the GTS (Viper Coupe) model.
The Viper was initially conceived in late 1988 at Chrysler's Advanced
Design Studios. The following February, Chrysler president Bob Lutz
suggested to Tom Gale at Chrysler Design that the company should consider
producing a modern Cobra, and a clay model was presented to Lutz a few
months later. Produced in sheet metal by Metalcrafters, the car appeared
as a concept at the North American International Auto Show in 1989. Public
reaction was so enthusiastic, that chief engineer Roy Sjoberg was directed
to develop it as a standard production vehicle.
Sjoberg selected 85 engineers to be "Team Viper," with development
beginning in March 1989. The team asked the then-Chrysler subsidiary
Lamborghini to cast some prototype aluminum blocks based on Dodge's V10
truck engine for sports car use in May. The production
body was completed in the fall, with a chassis prototype running in
December. Though a V8 was first used in the test mule, the V10, which the
production car was meant to use, was ready in February 1990.
Official approval from Chrysler chairman Lee Iacocca came in May 1990. One
year later, Carroll Shelby piloted a pre-production car as the pace vehicle
in the Indianapolis 500 race. In November 1991, the car was released to
reviewers with first retail shipments beginning in January 1992.
The first prototype was tested in January 1989. It debuted in 1991 with two
pre-production models as the pace car for the Indianapolis 500 when Dodge
was forced to substitute it in place of the Japanese-built Stealth because
of complaints from the United Auto Workers, and went on sale in January
1992 as the RT/10 Roadster.
The centerpiece of the car was its engine. It was based on the Chrysler LA
design, which was a truck engine. The original configuration made it too
heavy for sports car use, so Lamborghini, then owned by Chrysler
Corporation, revamped Dodge's cast-iron block V10 for the Viper by
recasting the block and head in aluminum alloy. Some within Chrysler felt
the pushrod two-valve design, while adequate for the truck application, was
unsuitable for a performance car and suggested a more comprehensive
redesign which would have included four valves per cylinder. Chrysler,
however, was uncertain about the Viper's production costs and sales
potential and so declined to provide the budget for the modification.
The engine weighed 711 lb (323 kg) and produced 400 bhp (300 kW) at 4600
rpm and 465 lb·ft (630 N·m) at 3600 rpm, and thanks to the long-gearing
allowed by the engine, provided fuel economy at a United States
Environmental Protection Agency-rated 12 mpg-US (20 L/100 km; 14 mpg-imp)
city and 20 mpg-US (12 L/100 km; 24 mpg-imp) highway. The body was a
tubular steel frame with resin transfer molding (RTM) fiberglass panels.
Some small bits of the suspension, (tie-rod ends and parts of the front
wheel hubs) following the manufacturer's "engine first" mantra, were
sourced from the Dodge Dakota pickup. It had a curb weight of 3,284 lb
(1,490 kg) and lacked all modern driver aids such as traction control or

Dodge Viper RT/10 chase
On the way home from work yesterday, I passed by a shopping center and
noticed a low, mean shape in the parking lot: this Viper RT/10! I got a
couple shots of it at rest, and then the owner drove off and I followed! A
few nice accelerations with some backfire are included in this video as I
follow the (rather quick) owner on a couple of roads. Right before the
owner entered a neighborhood and I broke off the chase, a yellow Plymouth
Prowler decided to make an appearance! :) Hope you like!
