2015 Dodge Viper SRT GT Coupe is Fastest Viper Ever

Ken Chester Jr.

New for 2015, the iconic Dodge Viper SRT receives a new, mid-priced GT model along with numerous styling and performance enhancements across the vehicle lineup.

Priced between the base Viper and Viper GTS models, the Dodge Viper SRT is produced at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit.

The new Viper GT model builds off the entry-level Viper by adding the driver-selectable suspension system, featuring Bilstein DampTronic Select shock absorbers with street and track settings, a five-mode electronic stability control system, and a unique interior with standard Alcantara and Nappa leather seats available in black, Demonic Red or Sepia, with accent stitching for the customer who wants a true Grand Touring performance machine.

The heart and soul of the 2015 Dodge Viper SRT is its venerable, handcrafted, all-aluminum 8.4L, mid-front V-10 overhead-valve engine, featuring an ultra-high-flow, lightweight composite intake manifold; high-strength forged pistons; sodium-filled exhaust valves; exhaust system catalysts to ease backpressure and an aluminum flywheel that reduces reciprocating losses.

Engine calibration and transmission refinements for 2015 raise the horsepower rating for the SRT-engineered V-10, while highway fuel economy also increases one mile per gallon (mpg). Engine torque remains at the most torque of any naturally aspirated sports-car engine in the world.
