While the all-new SRT Viper hogs all the limelight, most have forgotten that there was a predecessor that served as a halo car to generate some excitement, in an otherwise boring lineup of cars from Dodge. We haven’t forgotten and neither did Superior Auto Design.

The last Viper to wear the Dodge badge with pride, the 2010 Dodge Viper SRT10, was considered the last hurrah of the ultimate muscle car in its era, before SRT made plans to resurrect it and give it a facelift, making the original Viper design more modern.

The main goal of Superior Auto Design for this build was to make the Dodge Viper SRT10 cool and wicked, even by today’s standard. Judging by the pictures we have for you, they have hit bull’s eye on that aspect.

This custom build includes a revamped interior that includes new leather with diamond tufts and contrast stitching, painted center stack, new shift gear and e-brake boot. The exterior features a matte-black 3M wrap with gloss and carbon-fiber black accents. To increase the cool factor, SAD added red accents to certain elements of the exterior. To us, this custom Dodge Viper is what Bruce Wayne would’ve been driving if he had a fetish for American muscle cars.

The wicked-looking hood comes from the insanely evil Dodge Viper ACR and, to complement the whole build, SAD has fitted 20-inch black forged wheels with a red stripe on the outer lip, thereby wrapping up the whole custom build.

Under the hood, SAD left the 8.4-liter V-10 engine to its own devices. You can’t fault the tuner, as this engine is good for 600 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque, and sprinted the Viper to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds. Oh yeah, it was a Ferrari and Lambo killer in its heyday.

Overall, despite not being a custom build of the latest SRT Viper, it still grabs attention wherever it goes, like the original Viper used to back in ’ 92. Plus, this one has a top and outside door handles – two things that the 1992 Viper lacked.

yeah, that is right. if the track is curvy enough. because if it has lots of straight lines...well...i’m not so sure about the outcome of the race.

we may say whatever we want. but on a track, the viper may have some trouble keeping up with a ferrari or a lambo. and we all know that!

i think that this car is somehow better. first of all, it looks just great in that matte black with the thin red lines. second of all, although it is considered an underdog, it still kicks serious ass.

it would have been great to have the old car cooler and faster than the new one smiley

if they did anything to the engine it might have reached the 640 HP the new viper has. maybe more!

it would have been nice if they fiddled with the engine a little. but hey, it’s just great as it is!

you’re right john! it’s like forgetting your kid turned 18 just because he/she is turning 21 now.

i don’t even find this car too old. it’s from 2010. not even 3 years and people are forgetting about it??

  (542) posted on 12.9.2012

it is obvious that this car is great by any standards (except ecologist ones).
