2008 Viper

not sure if it has been posted yet... i did a search and found nothing, so here she is...

With past skeptics setting the new 2008 Mclaren tuned Dodge Viper srt at 615-650hp. A semi-final result has been anounced...

"The snake's out of the bag now, and the big news is a bump in displacement for the Viper's V10 motor from 8.3 liters to 8.4, which is accompanied by a corresponding increase in power to the aforementioned 600 hp (up 90 hp) and 560 ft-lbs. of torque (an increase of 25). As many already know, McLaren Performance Technologies (the U.S. company, not the German one associated with Mercedes-Benz) assisted Dodge in massaging the V10, though one could still argue that with 8.4-liters of displacement, the Viper's engine is still not reaching its full potential."

While increasing the horsepower by 90. They managed to only increase the weight by THREE pounds!!! 3! Therefore, the timeless debate between Corvette and Viper is settled, for now...

*****With the new 2008 Viper's power to weight ratio standing at 6.9lbs./ft. against the 2007 Corvette zo6's 6.2lbs./ft.*****

I think we can say that viper will hold the better title for at least a year considering Chevy just did all sorts of designing and spending on the 07 zo6, but ya never know right.

DODGE POWER! Personally, I FRIGGIN LOVE IT!

More info:

"Other improvements to the Dodge Viper including a beefed up Tremec T56 six-speed transmission and twin-disc clutch that replaces the current model's single-disc unit. A new limited-slip diff supposedly allows the engine's grunt to get to the ground more often than before, and the Viper's tires are now longer run-flats, though they're still the same size."

"Record holding braking at: 0-60 mph in under four seconds, 0-100-0 mph in just over 12 seconds, braking in under 100 feet"

The Engine:"The new Dodge Viper SRT10's deep-skirted V-10 aluminum engine block was revised for a 1-millimeter larger bore, raising the displacement to 8.4 liters from 8.3 liters. With strengthened bulkheads and improved water jackets for better cooling, the block includes pressed-in iron cylinder liners and cross-bolted main bearing caps for strength and durability.

The Viper SRT10's 8.4-liter engine breathes through new cylinder heads equipped with Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC)-shaped combustion chambers, larger valves and Variable Valve Timing (VVT). VVT electronically adjusts when the exhaust valves are open and closed according to engine speed and load, allowing the engine to "breathe" cleaner and more efficiently."
