   In much the same way the original Cobra came to fruition, the Viper rapidly assumed its very controversial shape. Enploying no less than a skunk works approach and mindset, a handful of special projects engineers and wily bean counters (with no real expectation of profit) managed to produce a wind-in-your-face roadster that epitomizes the genre. This limited-production fire-breather is a true sports car, complete with side curtains and a vestigal top. It's built for open-air driving and the gratification only that configuration can supply. Its high-torque, all-alloy 8.0-liter V-10 passes 450 horsepower through a six-speed gearbox. Its pure intentions are solified by the lack of ABS. However, a high-output stereo system is standard equipment.

UPDATES: Now you can enjoy the Viper RT/10 with the 450 bhp version of the GTS which now has a 460 bhp version of the same 8.0L V-10.
