We think that you have heard that the original design of Viper is a convertible which is completed with hardtop and now, Dodge got a lot of negative respond because they consider designing the fifth model of 2016 Dodge Viper with the coupe only. But, everything turned to be more interesting since it is reported that the car has Roadster. It will be a bit similar as other common Viper with the chopped roof that is replaced with soft top.
2016 Dodge Viper Engine
This is the most important point that we would like to tell you more. It is mentioned by many unofficial sites that this car will be supported with the modified version of V10 8.4 liter in order to produce strong horsepower that could be 640 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque. This engine is claimed as the most powerful aspirated engines on this earth for 2016 Dodge Viper. It would be more different from the competitors because Dodge supports it with six-speed manual gearbox with rear drive configuration for its unique performance.
Although the engine placed at the front, basically it is behind the front wheel so that we can say 2016 Dodge Viper has front-mid engine car in order to go with 50/50 weight distribution. This way will be helpful to support its performance faster especially with the independent suspension and also Brembo brakes.
Unlike the improvement around the engine, you would not see any significant changes at all around its chassis. The Coupe has gotten installed supporting struts to support the Convertible. Once the roof is opened, it will gain weight. The weight itself is less than 40 pounds from the Coupe. 2016 Dodge Viper with this engine is able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds. It is expected that the top speed could go for about 205 mph.
2016 Dodge Viper Interior
The last point is about its cabin. Both the Roadster and coupe will get similar interior so there will be no significant changes. The difference between those two variants for 2016 Dodge Viper is the extra rollover safety cage that could pop out when the car is rolling over.
2016 Dodge Viper Release Date and Price
This roadster is quite possible to be unveiled at the second half of 2015. It is prepared as the 2016 model year with the price tag to offer about $95,000. We think that this cost will not be too far from the rivals of 2016 Dodge Viper. Dodge is also reported to release this car with the introduction about Corvette convertible which is quite similar in the term of specification but with lower price to help people finding their best way to meet their financial capability.
