With design input from Carroll Shelby and approval
from Lee Iacocca, the Viper is a throwback to the
muscle car era of the late 1960's. It has a minimalist
interior, but just about every performance option
any speed freak could wish for. The giant 8.0 L V10
was based on engines used in Chrysler's biggest trucks.
It makes 400hp, considerably more than the Corvette.
It also gets great fuel mileage for a performance
car of this caliber, about 21 mpg. Some great performance
models include the GTS and SRT-10 on the latest generation

is a specially tuned model with 1000 horsepower.
It has done the 0-200 mph test in 21.3 seconds. It
costs $225,000. You won't find too many used Vipers
