The 2003 Dodge Viper is the best rendition of the sports car that debuted in the 1992 model year. The 8.3-liter, 20-valve V-10 engine now delivers an awesome 500 horsepower, a considerable upgrade from the mere 400 in the original. And the V-10 develops 525 pound-feet of slap-you-back-in-the-seat torque, a much-more- than-modest upgrade from the 450 pound-feet of torque in the original. The '03 Viper SRT-10 is the first product of Chrysler Group's new Performance Vehicle Operations.

Chrysler Corp. Chairman Lee A. Iacocca wrapped up a six-city road tour in Los Angeles yesterday by unveiling the pricey Dodge Viper sports car--and hinting that he might rethink his planned 1991 retirement if Chrysler sales take off. Iacocca made his remarks after Chrysler announced, as expected, that it would begin commercial production of the V-10 Dodge Viper, a $40,000-to-$50,000, two-seat sports car scheduled to debut on Jan. 1, 1992.
