2006 Dodge Viper SRT-10 Copperhead Coupe

To showcase their new Mopar Parts Catalogue, DaimlerChrysler put together a special Viper that was fitted with all the new pieces.

Called the Copperhead Edition, this Viper benefits from new headers, a comp camshaft and a side exhaust, all which help add 44 bhp and 48 fl lbs of torque.

To help get the additional power to the rear wheels Dodge has added a Quaife differential with a 3:55 ring and pinion set.

Exterior modifications include Mopar Sidewinder Wheels a custom carbon fiber body kit made by Skunkwerk.

Other touches include a Custom rear glass, Brembro lightweight brakes, Sparco Custom Seats and a short-throw shifter.

Most of these parts will be available from any local Dodge dealer.
