The last Dodge Viper was eventually joined in its lifecycle by a GTS hardtop coupe designed for racing. Now the current Viper is doing the same hardtop conversion, as Dodge has announced there will be a Viper SRT-10 Coupe introduced in the 2006 model year. The Coupe sports the same 8.3-liter V10 engine as the convertible Viper, with 500 horsepower and 525 lb-ft of torque. That means in racing trim, the two-door will be able to accelerate to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds. Brembo racing brakes will be added, and the trunk room will be boosted 50 percent in case racing requires a weekend bag. Pricing hasn't been released -- the Viper coupe arrives in the fall.
