For the 2015 model year, the Viper supercar has returned home to the Dodge brand, bringing the short-lived SRT experiment to a quick and quiet end. The 2015 Dodge Viper doesn’t change too much to the (somewhat) successful formula of Fiat-Chrysler’s bona fide supercar, though a $15,000 price drop and addition of more standard equipment has boosted sales by some 26%.
With the 2015 Dodge Viper arriving at dealerships soon, Fiat-Chrysler has trotted out some sexy new images of their V10 supercar, tantalizing prospective buyers with visions of what might be. Add to that the aforementioned additional standard features and the new Viper GT and Time Attack 2.0 models, along with a lower price for the base SRT model, and you’ve got a recipe for fun, excitement, and a little bit of track terror.
So maybe there’s more going on with the 2015 Viper than we’re giving it credit for. For one thing, the base SRT model costs $15,000 less than when the Viper first debuted back in 2013 while adding new accent stitching on the seats and instrument panel, Alcantara inserts on the doors, and aluminum sill plates with the Viper badge. You cna step into a Viper SRT for about $85,000, while the next step up The next step up is the $94,995 Viper GT, which borrows the hood from the range-topping GTS model and adds Brembo calipers with two-piece StopTech rotors, Nappa leather seats, five-mode Electronic Stability Control, a two-mode sport suspension, and a six-way power adjustable driver’s seat.
Then there’s the Time Attack 2.0 Edition, which starts off $101,995 before ticking off a single feature. The red Brembos from the GT are replaced by black ones, and a new Aero Kit provides the kind of downforce necessary to make this a capable track car. The TA 2.0 also adds Matte Black “Sidewinder” wheels rolled in Pirelli P Zero Corsa rubber, as well as various badging and carbon fiber bits designed to enhance the driving experience.
Finally, there’s the ultimate Viper, the GTS, which for $107,995 replaces the Sidewinder wheels with aluminum “Venom” wheels, Laguna leather seats, an Alcantara headliner, and a Harman Kardon 18-speaker audio system. There’s also a unique Blue Ceramic paint option unique to the GTS, which also adds black stripes, a carbon fiber rear spoiler, orange brake calipers and gloss black GTS decals. All Vipers, regardless of model, share the same 645 horsepower 8.4 liter V10 engine.
