Q: How much would auto insurance cost for a 1995 dodge viper?
I saw the car for sale for $16,000.
The Viper has only 400 horsepower.
A: What difference does it make...It's a Viper. Whatever it costs in insurance, will still offset what it costs to own one. Get the darn thing at all costs. $16k? Are you sure it isn't wrecked? Get it! What are you waiting for? An invitation?
Q: engine swap. just wondering?
i have a 97 t-bird 4.6 V8. I saw a dodge viper motor for sale on ebay yesterday. Does anyone know if it will fit in my t-bird? If not, is there a way to make it fit? I saw a viper motor in a '63 vw beetle, so i know it can be done somehow.
A: If you're asking then you're not prepared for the swap. ANYTHING can be made to fit but at what cost? Your trans wouldn't bolt up, basically everything would need to be customized in order to fit it.
You better have deep pockets....at the end of the day you'd end up with a huge bill for something that radical.
Q: 69 charger V10 viper engine question. more info inside!?
i have a hobby. i collect 1/24 die cast cars and i take it 1 step further by looking up factory specs like hp, tq, 0-60, 1/4 mile, weight, and top speed.
its all very acurate except i ran into a small problem.
i bought a 69 charger a while back and it has a viper V10 under the hood.
its not a dub city car, it looks 100% factory until you open the hood.
ive had it for some time now and i always just listed it under the 440x6 specs but i want to be more accurate now.
so..... assuming dodge took a complete factory spec 69 dodge charger RT and dropped a 2003 viper V10 under the hood and maybe change the tranny a bit and new street tires what would your best guess be at the 0-60 and 1/4 mile times and if you wouldnt mind also what would you guess the top speed would be?
thanks in advance and ill provide the specs so you dont have to do any researching.
i believe this is very do-able as dodge just released the challenger srt8 and the 69 charger is very close in weight. so i would guess Dodge would make this 1 of a kind 69 charger the same way with all the technology but drop the v10 in the car.
here is the car i hope you experts would take an educated guess on the numbers for: 1969 charger v10 500/5600 525/4200 0-60? 1/4 mile? top speed? 4065lbs
here on the numbers on the 08 challenger: 425/6200 420/4800 4.7 13.1@109 4137lbs top speed 175mph
and here are the numbers on the 2003 viper: 500/5600 525/4200 3.8 11.7@123 3357lbs 195mph
again im showing the viper because that is the engine that the 69 charger has under the hood
im showing the 08 challenger because its close in weight
and im just hoping i can get as many educated guess's from true automotive enthusisits like yourselves.
again this is just a best educated guestament of what you believe the numbers would be if dodge took on this project for the sale of this high performance car using todays technology on a fully stock 69 charger meaning no weight reduction for racing, no nitro, just an upgrade of an icon.
thank you so much.
A: I like this question because of the amount of detail you give as well as the 69 Charger in my personal opinion is the greatest production car EVER. with a 426 of course.
Here would be my estimates for you
4.3 seconds 0-60
It would definetly be a 12 second car in the quarter mile
Probably 12.5 12.6
Top end speed and all these would also be determined by the rear axle ratio 175-185
Q: It's Official...Viper is dead by the end of summer 2010...?
The "current" generation is the last generation, since Dodge never made a dime on these cars. Image maker, yes, profit maker, no. Fiat has given this an absolute no-go.
My brother(who owned a Dodge Dealership in California for 10 years) said they would sit on the lot literally for years before being deeply discounted for sale. In the hands of a professional race-driver(who could stand getting the crap beat out of them for 1-2 hour stints)it was moderately successful, but didn't last the test of time, such as the 911
Just like Ford wouldn't fess up until THEY announced Mercury would bite the dust(known to insiders), same with Oldsmobile, etc.
Have to admit...they did look neat, but was never accepted by automotive journalists as much more than a trophy-car for those with very deep pockets, since the ergonomics was a disaster, V-10 sound was God-awful, and the built quality was even worse than the present day Vette.
RIP Snake-eyes...you'll be missed.
A: sorry to see it go could never afford one but they look good
