The end grows near for the Dodge Viper SRT10, but this super snake definitely will not be going gently into that good night. Chrysler has just released a family portrait of its ultimate power trio, which will consist of Coupe, Roadster and ACR (American Club Racer) editions, along with details about the 50 vehicles that will make up this Final Edition set.
Each of the 2010 Dodge Viper SRT10 Final Edition cars -- 20 Coupes, 18 Roadsters and 12 ACRs -- will be finished in Graphite Clear Coat body with a painted black center stripe outlined in red. The Viper SRT10 Coupe and ACR models also will feature a black windshield surround and all Final Edition models will sport unique side sill badges. While the Coupe and Roadster variants get Anthracite-painted six-spoke alloy wheels, the ACRs will come with black-finish five-spoke Sidewinder rims. Inside, these Final Edition cars are trimmed in black with red accent stitching, have red painted surrounds on the instrument cluster, bright stainless-steel screws on the center stack, Viper Final Edition floor mats and carry a series-numbered plaque on the shifter bezel.
Underhood, each of the 2010 Dodge Viper SRT10 Final Edition models carries the standard 8.4-liter V10 that makes 600 horsepower and 560 lb.-ft. of torque backed by a six-speed manual transmission. As always, the performance of these American muscle legends will remain scintillating. Each can hit 0-60 mph in less than four seconds, run 0-100-0 mph in a claimed 11.0 seconds and reach a top speed of 202 mph. While rumors swirl of its Fiat-engineered successor due in 2012, there's no question the legacy of the original Viper will live on forever in the annals of performance car history.
