…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Mopar?

Mopar (a conjunction of MOtor and PARts) is the Chrysler Group’s parts and services division, and also responsible for occasionally acting as the brand’s aftermarket performance division. Their latest creation, debuted at the Detroit Auto Show, is a Dodge Viper SRT-10 with an attitude. Under the old mantra “there’s no replacement for displacement”, MOPAR found a monstorous 675 horsepower hiding within their 8.4-liter V10 thanks to better cooling, a cold-air intake, and a variety of other tweaks. In addition to the go fast good stuff, they added adjustable suspension, blacked-out alloy wheels wrapped in Michelin rubber, some nice carbon fiber body appendages, and painted the entire thing in anthracite-gray with a bold red stripe running down the passenger’s side. Venom never looked like so much fun.

…Dodge’s Viper is amazing?


Dodge’s Viper has been my “one day I’ll own it” car since I first hung up an eight foot poster of the original 1992 version, and the new SRT-10 version is no different. The 8.4-liter V10 (up from 8.3) has been tweaked and tuned to produce 600 hp and 560 ft-lbs of ground tearing torque that gets the snake to 60 in under four seconds and to 100 and back again in just over 12 seconds. The hood has also been given six oh so sexy slits to vent the heat form the monster engine, adding even more seduction to the exterior. At this point, I think I’d trade part of a kidney to drive one for a day. Any takers?
