Since the legendary Dodge Viper was discontinued on August 17, 2017, rumors of a resurrection have persisted! After a production period of 25 years, it couldn't have been for the Viper, could it? Although the original manufacturing facility was closed with the legend, it shouldn't pose a real problem. And the surprising Lobster comeback as EV shows that you only have to have one idea! And also had "an idea" Abimelec designwho are using a Viper variant mid-engine have considered. That would be the perfect counterpart to the brand new Chevrolet Corvette C8, which has been available for the first time since 1953 with a mid-engine behind the seats. The variant of is shown from the front Abimelec design completely unchanged and even the Power Dome with air opening is still available.

the 8.4-liter V10 is now in the rear

Its function is now rather questionable, because underneath it is no longer the 8.4-liter V10, but at most a golf bag or a small suitcase set. The beautiful 649 hp engine has wandered behind the B-pillar and shows through the large rear window of the extended rear. This is where the main changes to Abimelec Design begin. The side wall at the rear was extended and widened by a few centimeters and the C-pillar now runs much flatter towards the rear, which has also remained unchanged. In our opinion, the design is extremely successful and the Abimelec Viper is a long-tail super sports car, if it were up to us, go straight to the series. But please also with the multi-part XXL wheelset and the successful lowering front and rear. The dark forged rims sit perfectly on the rear axle with the 355 slippers in the slightly widened wheel arches and leave the mid-engine viper looking pretty full. And we can imagine that this specimen also has some advantages in terms of driving dynamics.

Mid-engine = better weight distribution

The engine moved to the rear is certain to ensure better weight distribution. The 650 PS and more than 800 Newton meters of torque finally brought some weight with it, which has always provided a certain top heaviness under the long hood. In addition, all-wheel drive was lacking for over 25 years, so that even warm tires and a dry road surface did not protect against a breaking rear. The Viper never forgave driving errors because even a slight pressure on the accelerator pedal caused the rear to wander outside. And until the end, Dodge couldn't really tune the ESP. It grabbed hammering and sometimes bucking. All of this could now be history with this vehicle. If only it were reality ...
