The Ultimate Car Collection #42; Dodge Viper Phase 2 RT/10

 

The Viper was conceived as a historical take on the classic American sports car. The iconic AC Cobra was a source of inspiration, and the final version of the Viper bears this out with its powerful engine, minimalist straightforward design, muscular and aggressive styling, and high performance.

Some saw claims to kinship with the Cobra as a marketing exercise, ignoring that Carrol Shelby was heavily involved in the initial design of the Viper, and subsequent design of the Viper GTS coupe. Notably, the later (1996 through 2002) Viper GTS coupe took a few design cues from the Pete Brock designed Shelby Cobra Daytona. Though the proportions seem similar at first glance, the designs are quite unique. Carrol Shelby was key in the development of the R/T 10 as well as having a hand in the development of the GTS model.

It is also mentioned in some sources that the Charger MkIII Concept car from 1970 was an inspiration for the design
