I couldn’t believe it when the Dodge Viper was pulled from Dodge’s ever growing lineup of Challengers and Chargers. It was not only a popular car, but an extremely successful performance car for not only Dodge, but American cars as a whole as it takes home 13 track records across the world.
Now, according to Car&Driver, the Viper could be making a comeback in 2021. So, while I’m a bit skeptical, let’s discuss what dodge needs to produce to make it worth of the Viper name.
First of all, it doesn’t just have to be amazing, it has to be the best. And not only in powertrain, but in aerodynamics and chassis control, too. This may be a good time for Dodge to use the rumoured Hellsnake engine – a supercharged V10 with ideas taken from the Hellcat V8. Dodge have proven that they can dominate a drag strip, but the Viper is much more than that.
It must be aerodynamically superior to the majority, too. But again, Dodge have proven that they are more than capable of doing this.
Let me know what you expect? Will it be returning in the first place? If it does return, may Dodge go hybrid? I doubt it, but there’s always a chance that Dodge will push the car into competition with the hypercar hybrids. Let me know what you think in the comments.
