It may sound a bit paradoxical at first when Dodge a Viper Mamba Edition on the market, because two poisonous snakes in one model name can be too much of a good thing. Many cooks spoil the broth, goes a well-known proverb. But this does not apply in this case, because the Mamba edition is the step up of a normal Viper, and was released in 2004 and 2005 in a limited edition of just once 200 offered. The more desirable is such a rare specimen of the (double) venomous snake, which we will present to you in more detail today.
Super athlete dressed in white!
One might hardly suspect it, but even the innocent and well-behaved looking one White of the vehicle is a special color that was only available on the Mamba edition. The color was not even offered for the series Viper. Furthermore, there are of course various modifications that make the snake with the double name even more poisonous. This includes a bonnet with a large air inlet and various air outlets, one APR carbon front spoiler lip as well as APR canards on the front apron.
This makes the front of the rolling venomous snake look mean, and the Painting with black and red accents contributes to an even greater visual dynamic. Start numbers and lettering on the body make it clear that the vehicle is intended to function as a track tool. For the optimal height were Lightweight coilover struts as well as a Lightweight aluminum wishbones installed above and below. To the characteristics join stabilizers front and back. The Viper owns to it OEM forged wheels with a black finish and red decorative stripes, which are strongly reminiscent of Rotiform-Alus. The dimensions on the front axle are 10 × 18 inches, while the rear axle has 13 × 19-inch wheels. On the rims were Michelin Reifen in the format 275/35 ZR18 at the front, as well as tires of the same brand in the format 345/30 ZR19 at the rear.
This means that the Viper should build up impressive grip on the rear axle, even though it is well known should not has all-wheel drive. For optimal deceleration values from high speeds, Brembo four-piston fixed calipers and 355 mm large brake discs installed all around. This means that the US sports car, which has meanwhile matured into a classic, is ideally equipped for a trip to the racetrack.
The interior is pretty classy!
Even if you find a typical US cockpit from the early millennium, the equipment was not skimpy. There is a special one interior decoration in black and red, which with sports seats comes with leather / suede covers, one Custom shift levers with a round knob, one Edition badge with serial number on the center console, four additional instruments, which indicate oil pressure, oil temperature, cooling water temperature and voltage, as well as those almost mandatory for this epoch, white clock faces, Also a Alpine sound system with a six-disc CD changer is in the vehicle, and if you still have CDs, you can play them.
V10 naturally aspirated gasoline engine with 8,3 liters displacement
A viper is known to be as far from electrification and downsizing as Earth is from Mars. And the Mamba Edition is no exception. A huge 8,3 liter displacement from one Ten cylinder gasoline engine generate full 507 PS and 711 Newtonmeter maximum torque. The power is transmitted via a Tremec T56 manual transmission with six forward gears on the rear wheels. The driving performance is still impressive today thanks to the large-volume V10 engine, and no eye stays dry when accelerating.

Two is Better! The saying applies to this venomous snake. Even more than 15 years after the production stop of the special edition, the vehicle knows how to inspire, and leaves all the critics who are about the voluminous, gas-guzzling V10 petrol to riot, fall silent.
