Largely unchanged for 2009, the Dodge Viper performance specs boast an imposing 8.4L V10 engine that generates 600 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque, enough to jam from zero to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds. With a top speed of 200 mph, Dodge Viper is rough and raw, even unrefined, when compared to other sports cars. The only transmission available is a 6-speed manual gearbox. While not a priority, fuel economy is EPA-rated at 13 mpg city/22 mpg hwy and 16 mpg combined. Standard safety features on the 2009 Dodge Viper are antilock brakes with 14-inch rotors for screaming stops, and the usual driver- and passenger-front airbags. Despite technological advances over the past two decades, the Viper has just enough safety equipment to make it legal, omitting side-airbags, traction control and stability control. Standard are race-inspired seats, power-adjustable pedals, full-power accessories, tilting steering wheel and 6-disc CD changer with a 7-speaker, 300-watt audio system. Options include racing stripes, instrument-panel trim, a two-tone interior, a navigation system and satellite radio.
