This great-looking successor to the previous-generation Viper GTS was not originally part of the plan for the new Viper. The first Viper coupe was done only because the roadster's top was so pathetic; with a real convertible top engineered for the second-generation Viper, Dodge planners thought they didn't need a hardtop. The very vocal Viper owners' club disagreed, pointing out that many race tracks don't allow convertibles to participate in track events without adding roll bars. Dodge saw the light and crafted this sexy coupe. Underhood is the same 500-hp 8.3-liter V-10 as in the roadster, and this time the coupe even retains the roadster's side pipes. You won't find the spare tire under the long back glass, however, as Vipers now roll on run-flat tires. The coupe arrives at dealerships this fall, priced close to the roadster's $82,295.
