Dodge announced pricing today for the all-new, heart-pounding 2009 Dodge Viper ACR Coupe SRT10 Coupe. Returning in hardtop form for the first time since the 2002 model year, the 2009 Dodge Viper ACR Coupe SRT10 Coupe is available for $83,995, which includes $850 for destination. The 2009 Dodge Viper ACR Coupe SRT10 Coupe arrives in Dodge showrooms in October.
“With heart-pounding performance and head-turning design, Viper is the icon of the Dodge brand,” said Darryl Jackson, Vice President -- Dodge Marketing, Chrysler Group. “The all-new 2009 Dodge Viper ACR Coupe SRT10 Coupe is a true Dodge super car boasting triple 500s – a 505-cubic-inch V-10 engine, 500 horsepower and 525 pound-feet of torque – plus a race-bred, stick-to-the-pavement suspension and braking performance that will separate your retinas.”
The all-new 2009 Dodge Viper ACR Coupe SRT10 Coupe features a “double-bubble” roof design and dramatic rear styling with wraparound taillamps reminiscent of the 1996-2002 Dodge Viper GTS Coupe.
Another connection to the Dodge Viper GTS Coupe is the inaugural color scheme: The 2009 Dodge Viper ACR Coupe SRT10 Coupe will be launched with a Viper Blue exterior accented with Stone White stripes, a nod to the blue-with-white-stripes motif of the original Dodge Viper GTS Coupe.
To develop the 2009 Dodge Viper ACR Coupe SRT10 Coupe, the starting point was the stout structure of the Dodge Viper SRT10 Convertible. With the addition of the roof structure, the Viper SRT10 Coupe becomes even more torsionally rigid than the Convertible. From an aerodynamic standpoint, the all-new 2009 Dodge Viper ACR Coupe SRT10 Coupe is designed for downforce and high-speed stability, with a sloping roofline and deck lid spoiler.
In addition to the new canopy and deck lid, the 2009 Dodge Viper ACR Coupe SRT10 Coupe has a special windshield surround, door side glass, rear fascia, quarter panels and taillights.
The deck lid for the Dodge Viper SRT10 Coupe was designed for customer convenience as well as structural integrity. The Decklid opening is deeply integrated into the rear fascia, which offers a low lift-over height for stowing cargo.
The 2009 Dodge Viper ACR Coupe SRT10 Coupe offers more usable trunk space: 4 cubic feet more than the Dodge Viper SRT10 Convertible, for a total of 6.25 cubic feet.
New options for 2006 on both the Dodge Viper SRT10 Coupe and Dodge Viper SRT10 Convertible include two new styles of forged wheels: an “H-pattern” wheel and a five-spoke wheel (MSRP $700), SIRIUS Satellite Radio (MSRP $195) and dual exterior stripes: silver stripes on red and black cars and black stripes on yellow cars (MSRP $3,000). Additional color and stripe combinations will be introduced throughout the model year.
The first 200 of the all-new 2009 Dodge Viper ACR Coupe SRT10 Coupes will be offered with a First Edition package that includes a Viper Blue exterior (the only coupes available in blue) accented with dual Stone White stripes; the five-spoke forged wheels; a car cover with dual stripes; seats and floor mats with contrasting blue stitching and embroidery; parking-brake handle, shift knob and steering wheel all highlighted with contrasting blue stitching and blue leather; and a serialized dash plaque (MSRP $4,995).
Stopping power is another carefully developed part of the Dodge Viper SRT10 equation, with 14-inch brake rotors gripped by Brembo 44/40 dual opposing piston calipers in the front and Brembo 42/38 dual opposing calipers in the rear. This system results in a world-class braking performance of 60-0 mph in less than 100 feet.
Dodge Viper SRT10 performance is further defined by a race-bred aluminum, four-wheel independent suspension featuring lightweight, high-performance aluminum control arms and knuckles, damped by lightweight coil-over shock absorbers. Where the rubber meets the road, Dodge Viper SRT10 rides on forged aluminum, polished 18-in. x 10-in. front and 19-in. x 13-in. rear wheels, clad in Michelin zero-pressure run-flat tires.
Formed in 2002, SRT is the industry’s leading in-house automotive performance group. SRT creates some of the Chrysler Group’s boldest, most distinctive products that deliver benchmark performance at the lowest price.
