The centerpiece of this 1994RT/10is its engine. The Lamborghini Company, then owned by Chrysler Corporation, designed the 8.0L V10 for the Viper by recasting the block and heads in an aluminum alloy. This reliable and race proven motor was based on the current production Mopar V8 engine.A major contributor to the Viper since the beginning was Dick Winkles, the chief power engineer, who had spent time in Italy and this was a major influence on the design with look, sound and performance.
Air intake is through a cast aluminum manifold with formed tubes, including an integral fuel rail cored in the castings. The dual throttle bodies and bottom-feed high-impedence fuel injectors control fuel flow and mixture. Fuel is fed to the injectors by a sequential multipoint injection system.
The engine's forged aluminum pistons are set in cast iron liners. The aluminum cylinder head features a conventional two valves per cylinder with higher-revving dual valve springs.
While a natural extension of the classic American V-8 (the small-block LA series, to be exact), a number of the V-10's unusual design features were derived from Formula One engines. Among these features are a closed tappet gallery for better intake manifold seating, and a sophisticated internal water flow system which traces its route outside the engine block, inside the cylinder head, around each cylinder and inside each combustion chamber for increased engine cooling. Spent combustion gasses travel through a stainless steel tubular exhaust manifold, then pass through unique sill-mounted catalytic converters and exit at the center rear.
The engine weighs 711lb (323kg) and produces 400bhp (300kW) at 4600rpm and 465lb·ft (630N·m) at 3600rpm, and thanks to the long-gearing allowed by the engine, provides fuel economy at a United States Environmental Protection Agency-rated 12mpg-US (20L/100km; 14mpg-imp) city and 20mpg-US (12L/100km; 24mpg-imp) highway.
The six-speed manual transmission was designed to harness Viper's substantial power and match its high-performance expectations. It boasts an electronic reverse lockout feature and first-to-fourth skip-shift for fuel economy.
Viper's massive V-10 engine is mounted on what is believed to be the stiffest sports car chassis ever built. The body is a tubular steel frame with resin transfer molding (RTM) fiberglass panels giving itcurb weight of Only 3,284lb (1,490kg).
The engine is cradled by two massive rectangular-tube frame rails, which turn out at the front bulkhead and continue on down the sides. Positioned between the front bulkhead and the back of the cockpit is a central backbone of smaller rectangular tubes. This is attached at the back to a cage or box which encompasses the rear suspension, a 19-gallon fuel tank, a spare tire, the battery and the trunk.
The fully independent front and rear suspensions feature unequal-length upper and lower "A" arms and coil-over springs made of lightweight, yet strong micro-grain alloy steel. High-performance gas-filled shocks minimize aeration.
The power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering system features positive on-center feel and a fast 16.7:1 steering ratio for quick and responsive maneuvering. Lock to lock is accomplished in a mere 2.4 turns. Viper's turning circle is 40.5 feet and its maximum turning angle is 28 degrees.
Viper's high performance brake system features four-piston front calipers with huge 13" x 1.26" vented rotors up front and 13" x.86 vented rotors at the rear. This system was specially designed to help meet the stated test-track goal of 0-100-0 mph in less than 15 seconds.
It completes a quarter mile (402 m) in 12.6 seconds and has a maximum speed ofaround 165mph (266km/h). Its large tires allow the car to average close to one lateral g in corners, placing it among the elite cars of its day.
Finally, Viper's cooling system consists of a lightweight copper-core radiator and an electronically controlled dual-speed electric fan. A front-mounted engine air-to-oil cooler is also standard.
The car is Spartan but doesfeaturea Factory equippedamplified sound system withcenter mounted Subwoofers and Leather adjustable seats with inflatable lumbar support . This car does come with the factory Side curtains made of fabric and clear plastic operated by zippers andcan be inserted into the door and hand-bolted when needed andthe Mopar optionalsoft top cover that fold easily to be stored in the trunk incase you run intobad weather.All of these decisions were made to reduce weight.An Interstate battery is located in the factory compartment over the rear wheels to increase rear-end weight and traction.
