2015 Dodge Viper GTS R710 Front AngleDownsizing? Hybrid drive? The Dodge Viper has nothing to do with such fashionable eco-drivel. Without a turbo or supercharger in sight, this old style US muscle car draws its might from a naturally aspirated 8.4-litre V10 motor on which its reputation was built.

Installed as far back as possible under the Viper’s long bonnet, this powerhouse motor boasts 649 hp and 814 Nm of torque. Apart from making the big rear tyres work hard for their living, this also calls for a driver with skill and responsibility.

The stunning 2013 SRT Viper joined by a heartfelt introduction would set the stage for a special auction that was destined to make history. Generous bidders and an enthusiastic crowd witnessed the sale of the first 2013 Viper at Barrett-Jackson Orange County. Proceeds from the final $300,000 bid will directly benefit the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer. A number of generous bidders fought to become the proud owner of the first 2013 Viper, but just one would prevail. More importantly, a worthy cause will benefit from the sale of the first Viper.
