The Dodge Viper is very common with people who crave for high-end luxury and top-notch performance in vehicles. The state-of-the-art sports car comes with an extremely aerodynamic body, a premium interior, and very powerful engine options. If you are a fan of this supercar, be ready to welcome the 2017 Dodge Viper which will hit the market in a few months’ time.
2017 Dodge Viper – Exterior Worth Noticing:
According to the American luxury car manufacturer, the upcoming Viper will be based on the same design platform as the outgoing model. Its body will feature light materials such as carbon fiber & aluminum, something which will boost speed and fuel efficiency. With pronounced overtures and curves all over the exterior, its sides will look muscular and its ends will get an aggressive appearance.
Placed in the lower fascia and flanked by two air vents, the grille will be slim and trapezoidal in shape. Above it, there will be LED headlamps and an additional air hole. In the rear end, the 2017 Dodge Viper will have LED taillights and a slightly larger bumper. The sides will have stylish mirrors, classic windows and alloy wheels.
The two-seater car will have leather upholstery on the seats, steering wheel and dashboard. There will be other materials like carbon fiber, cloth, and aluminum in the interior. The cabin will be small, but will offer enough space for the occupants and their personal items. The dashboard of the 2017 Dodge Viper will carry an Uconnect infotainment system, a refreshed instrument cluster and control buttons for high-tech equipment such as air conditioning, navigation, and audio. The luxury car is highly likely to get other technological features such as Smartphone integration, Bluetooth and USB ports.
This is a luxury and top-speed car, so we don’t expect its safety and security to be compromised. The car maker will have to equip it with protection features such as anti-lock brake system (ABS), seatbelts, tire-pressure monitoring system, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, collision warning system, security alarms, airbags, rearview camera, parking assist and adaptive cruise control, among others.
