Vipers were downgraded to 378bhp (basically their power rating on 8x US octane) because of emission standards in Europe and the UK. However, that number could be brought back up using the highest octane number possible over there.

450 hp is the Viper's rating on 9x US octane gas. The top speed is variable on tire options and weather conditions. No I wouldn't say it's either 177 mph (headwind in hot weather on regular tires) or 193 mph (tailwind in cold weather on performance tires), but more like 185 mph (two-way average).

Many sources state 185 mph as well. I figure that's a more 'reasonable' top speed out of those two figures (one pessimistic, the other optimistic).

That 1 mile time is ridiculous.

There was also a mid-engined Viper, built in the mid-90's. Few pictures still exist.

I think, the Most Perfect car, Ever, "Might Just Be", an Obsidian Black Metallic 2002 Dodge Viper GTS, with Matching '21 Obsidian Black Metallic Rims, with a Tuned Hps Exhaust, I think that could be the Most Perfect car. Just might be..

That Viper isn't fast enough to keep up with my favourite Viper the ACR, the GTS needs more power and less weight to keep up with any ACR.

the dodge viper gtsr concept 1999 with 500 hp was my dream car when i was a kid

phavyarden  14y ago

fine, 60 mph is not the same that 100km/h, but if this car hits the 60 in 4 sec flat, i dont think that takes 0.5 sec in hit 2mph more


User avatar

phavyarden  14y ago

0.5 sec to hit 60-62?
i dont think so

This Losing to the 993 Carrera RS by 4 seconds on the Croft Circuit?? i call that a fixed race favoring the RS!!

Croft wouldn't suit the Viper as its all about handling rather than bute force on that track.

Whoever said that 1:32 is 10 seconds too fast at Willow Springs obviously has never been there with the Viper club, nor driven a Viper GTS there. Amazing how some people talk with no first-hand knowledge. Sigh, thats the internet for ya. Anybody can spout off innacurate information with no background checks. When Viper Days goes to WS big track, many bone stock Gen 2's do very low 30s there. Driving ace Terry Rossi has done a 1:29 in a bone stock Viper GTS ACR on street tires. 1:32 is achievable to a moderately capable driver if you have the "sack", and seat time. WS is all about nerve. Terry has videos on YT of him on WS and the Nordshleife in Vipers. Check it out.

not that i doubt those performance numbers, but i do find it (Kinda strange that the GTS passes the 1 mile mark at 170mph when the 997 GT2 and SLR pass at 177 and 178mph!

The Viper gets to 60 in the low 4's, it's with probably with rollout though, like most mags test.

It has gone past 190 according to MT (Must have been REALLY good conditions), I can't find it on their website (I know they refer to ii in their 99? Top speed comparo test, they do have a 187.3
