2020 Dodge Viper Concept Images – The 2020 Dodge Viper Concept handles well and its standard AWD gives off-road ability as well, though only the turbo model offers spirited performance.
2020 Dodge Viper Concept Review, specs and Release date
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Dodge brand is secretly developing a powerful, lightweight, all-new supercar replacement for the Viper, according to a new report.
Set to also be called the ‘Viper’, according to US title Car & Driver, the introduction of the American-made supercar is set to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the original Viper going on sale.
That means the new Viper will be on sale in 2020.
Built around a lightweight aluminium spaceframe, weight is curbed thanks to the heavy use of carbon-fibre for the body.
Under the bonnet, an all-new naturally aspirated V8 is being developed that will also see service in both the Charger and Challenger.
In the Viper, the entry engine will push out around 410kW, although a more powerful turbo- or supercharged version is expected to must a mightier 520kW.
Both a traditional six-speed manual and a two-pedal version are likely.
With a kerbweight expected to dip below 1300kg, the most powerful Viper is expected to hit 100km/h in less than 3.0 seconds and top out at more than 340km/h.
Like before, the Dodge brand is expected to develop the Viper for GT3 racing.
That’s means it’s highly likely there will be a replacement for the road-legal but track-focused Viper ACR.
Sadly, it’s still unlikely that FCA will greenlight a right-hand drive version ruling the third-generation Viper out for Australia.

It’s not been confirmed where the Viper will be made following the closure of its dedicated factory last year.
Instead, it’s almost certain the Viper will be made by a third-party manufacturer.
Pricing for Dodge’s Viper is expected to begin in the US at around $90,000 ($A120,000).
The best value in 2020 Dodge Viper Concept is a base model with manual gearbox, but it’s still decently priced after adding fancy audio, leather, and a moonroof.
