In-game description[]

This description is taken from the PAL version of the original Gran Turismo:

The Dodge Viper was launched in 1992. The muscularly designed body is lowslung targa-top 2-seater. The star feature is the engine. Lamborghini engineers helped in a joint development that took a 7.8-litre[1] V10 OHV, originally a truck engine, and turned it into an engine fit for a sports car. It has an unequal firing cycle and generates a staggering 400 PS and 62.6 kgm. The transmission is a 6-speed manual. The engine at the front drives the two rear wheels (FR). In terms of dynamics capabilities, its overwhelmingly powerful acceleration is just out of this world. The handling is definitely sporty, but the suspension is not capable of containing the huge power of the engine, and it feels rather tense going round corners. 1995 saw the introduction of a GTS with enclosed body that delivered 455 PS / 67.37 kgm.



This car can be bought at the Dodge Dealership for 80,040 Credits. It is also available in Arcade Mode, but must be unlocked by winning three races in Special Stage Route 5 using one car in each class. This will also unlock two other Dodge cars, the Dodge Concept Car and Dodge Viper RT/10.
