Dodge Viper SRT-10 Carbon

What Is It?
Dodge Viper SRT-10 Carbon Concept

What's Special About It?
As if the Viper wasn't already one of the sickest street cars ever built, the Mopar Performance team came up with this lightweight hardtop concept to show just how much more extreme it could get. As the name implies, this Viper makes extensive use of exotic carbon fiber to reduce weight without giving up anything in the way of strength or rigidity. A close inspection reveals that carbon fiber was used for the hood, front air dam, rear deck lid and the custom hardtop that replaces the stock vehicle's convertible lid. There are also new lightweight forged aluminum wheels that further reduce the vehicle's poundage. All told, these high-dollar replacement parts shave 150 pounds off the Viper's curb weight giving it an even more impressive power-to-weight ratio than the factory snake. But the Dodge engineers didn't stop there as the SRT-10 Carbon also features a massaged version of the standard V10 engine that throws the ratio even further out of whack. Breathing through reworked heads, aluminum velocity stacks and a cowl induction system, the 8.3-liter monster pumps out a scary 625 horsepower. Needless to say, if you're not sufficiently blown away by the standard Viper this bare-bones street fighter might do the trick.

Why Should You Care?
This may be a concept but the result isn't very far-fetched. As the horsepower war continues to escalate, Dodge could very well perform similar weight-saving measures on special-edition production coupes to keep it ahead of their increasingly powerful competitors. — Ed Hellwig

We should make life easier for snatch. Instead of a "quick reply" box at the bottom for snatch, we should remove it and just put a button that inserts text "repost"....his life mission on the alley would then be fulfilled. Decorate the "repost" text in some hippi liberal tie die and snatch would be in fuckin heaven.
