2001 Dodge Viper on 2040-cars
Amarillo, Texas, United States
All-disc antilock brakes are new for 2001 on Dodge’s high-performance, retro-styled RT/10 convertible. Dodge
also added Viper Race Yellow for 2001 so this vehicle will be perfect for the discerning collector. Because Vipers
still draw attention, despite being over 2 decades old, collector demand is a consideration when buying. More than
20,000 Vipers have been sold since the snorting rear-drive two-seater debuted as a 1992 model.
No other sports car on the market in 2001 was on par with the Viper, a throwback to the era of all-out muscle
machines, whose V-10 engine cranks out no less than 450 horsepower. In fact, no other production car used a V-10
engine in 2001. The engine catapults you from 0-60 in under 4 seconds and melts the ¼ mile in 12.2 seconds.
Designed to bring back memories of the Shelby Cobras seen on American roads and racetracks back in the 1960s, the
Viper ranks as an exercise in excess but one that’s basically simple in styling. Both the convertible and coupe
share such design features as a bold crossbar grille, huge side scoops in the front fenders and a long, wide hood.
This vehicle has the optional removable hardtop, color matched of course. This viper rides on new 275/35ZR18 front
and even bigger 335/30ZR18 rear tires mounted on custom color matched Forgeline VR-1 Wheels.
Two occupants sit in low reclining custom Italian leather yellow interior with black contrast stitching and Viper
logos by a reputable Viper community interior maker. The seats are now adjustable, unlike previous model years.
Standard equipment includes air conditioning, a tilt steering wheel, remote keyless entry, fog lights, a
theft-deterrent system, and power windows, locks and mirrors, overhead mesh storage pouches and a trunk light. The
vehicle has a professionally installed Alpine audio system with custom subwoofer in the factory location.
Under the Hood
A brawny 8.0-liter V-10 engine beneath the Viper’s hood puts out 450 hp and 490 pounds-feet of torque — the
kind of torque that seems ready to drag tree stumps out of the ground. It was the biggest, most powerful engine
offered in an American production automobile in 2001 and stands strong with production muscle cars even nearly 15
years later. A custom Borla exhaust is estimated to add approximately 20 HP bringing the total to a head smashing
470 HP. A six-speed-manual gearbox is the only available transmission.

Not wanting to let Jeep get all of the SUV attention for the 2014 model year, Dodge is unveiling a refreshed version of its Durango at the New York Auto Show. Teased in this image, all we can really tell about the 2014 Dodge Durango is that it will be getting Dodge's "racetrack" taillights similar to the Charger and Dart.
The chrome or painted strip currently between the Durango's Zorro taillamps have been removed to allow for a full-width LED array with "DODGE" lettering displayed more prominently above the license plate pocket. Parent company Chrysler also promises that the updated Durango will add "several new class-exclusive features," but stops short of saying what those are. Earlier reports suggest that among the changes, buyers will be able to look forward to an eight-speed automatic gearbox, which ought to improve the three-row SUV's fuel efficiency.
Every year, Mopar selects one special vehicle from the Chrysler portfolio and creates its own, one-off, special edition. Previously, there was the Mopar '13 Dart, '12 300, '11 Charger and the '10 Challenger, and for 2014, this teaser image shows that the company will be giving the unique treatment to Dodge's muscle coupe yet again.
Mopar has not revealed any details about its '14 Challenger, though the brand's president and CEO, Pietro Gorlier, says that "This limited-edition ride is for muscle-car fans who love high octane and customizable performance." All we know is, it's white, has some blue stripes, and a black (or carbon fiber) rear spoiler.
We'll know more when the Mopar '14 Challenger is revealed at the SEMA show in early November. In the meantime, click the image above to check out the teaser in high resolution, and have a look below for Chrysler's official press blast.
Chrysler is adding a third shift at its Warren Truck plant to meet demand for the new 2013 Ram pickup. And with tight supplies of its Pentastar V6, the company is also boosting output at its Mack Engine plant.
The expansions will add 1,250 jobs and are part of a $238 million investment by Chrysler in the Detroit area. Warren's third shift will begin work sometime in the spring, a Chrysler rep told Automotive News. Mack's increased Pentastar production a could include both 3.6 and 3.2-liter engines.
The company says it also plans to invest $40 million in its Trenton Engine plant to allow for production of a 3.2-liter V6 as well as the Tigershark inline-four for the upcoming Jeep Liberty replacement.
