This coupe has a hard bubble top and its sloping roofline and deck lid spoiler offer high speed stability and an increased down force. The Dodge Viper SRT10 Coupe has a bonus of 6.25 cubic feet of trunk space more than the Viper SRT10 Roadster. Apart from this, the structure of headliner and the roof give more room to have space for a safety cage and yet keep sufficient headroom.
Complete handling comfort
The handling of this super sports vehicle is a completely independent four-wheel suspension with lightweight and high-performance aluminum knuckles and control arms which are damped by shock absorbers that are lightweight coil-over ones.
An anti- locking braking system
The Dodge Viper SRT10 formula has an anti-locking brake system which results in the vehicle dropping from 60 to 0 miles per hour within a distance of less than 100 ft. This is because of the 14 inch brake rotors which are gripped by Brembo 44 or 40 dual opposing piston calipers which are in the front and similarly 42 or 38 dual opposing piston calipers in the rear.
