The Dodge Viper Debuts in BC

<a href="https://willowbrookused.com/inventory/#/?&orderBy=1&t=0&filter=[%2CDodge%2CViper%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C]"><img src="/images/upload/August_2021/ccc/photo-of-used-dodge-viper.png" alt="A red 2004 Dodge Viper parked at the Willowbrook Used dealership in BC."/></a>
The Dodge Viper arrived in BC in 1991, and it benefitted from a V10 engine developed by Lamborghini. This edition had no exterior door handles nor air conditioning initially, which reflected its performance-inspired roots. In fact, the roof was made from canvas; but there was a cassette player, leather bucket seats, and some other creature comforts found inside to distinguish it from the competition.

In 1994, air conditioning was added as an option, while the mighty 465 lb-ft engine that could crank out up to 400 HP remained. That was courtesy of its long gearing setup and its elegant frame made from durable tubular steel. And, as a bonus for such a capable muscle car, it achieved fuel economies as high as 12 L/100 km on the highway and 20 L/100 km in the city.

The Dodge Viper Sees Updates for the 21st Century in BC

The next generation of Dodge Viper, called the SR II, arrived in 1996. It increased the engine's output to 415 HP and 488 lb-ft, thanks to the reconfigured exhaust system that boasted two large centre-mounted tailpipes that helped cut down on back-pressure. And inside the cabin, motorists could choose a removable hardtop with a sliding glass window to increase both style and ventilation. 

1996 saw the bubble-roofed Viper GTS coupe arrive, which could crank out up to 450 HP and 490 lb-ft of torque; while the generation three soon followed in 2002; and with it came a streamlined new look, up to 500 horsepower and 525 lb-ft of torque, and a lighter aluminum frame. 

The Dodge Viper Exits With a Bang in BC

The last two Dodge Viper generations introduced many memorable trims and features to BC drivers. In 2008, the third edition boasted 600 HP and 560 lb-ft of torque, while a vented engine cover helped enhance airflow. Plus, the exhaust was again reconfigured to better control heat extraction and improve performance.

The fifth and (as of now) final Dodge Viper debuted in 2013. It raised the HP output to 640 and the torque to 600 lb-ft. Plus, electronic stability and traction control systems helped keep it sure-footed on the slickest track. Meanwhile, advanced LED lighting cut through gloomy conditions; and the interior boasted an available Harman Kardon audio system to deliver tunes ideally suited to thrilling drives. This was the premier sports coupe of its time - and it remains that even today.
