Viper Venom to be added to SRT, GTS; Super Bee returning

by David Zatz on

Several Viper models are planned, according to sources within the Auburn Hills greater metro area, including one unexpected name: the Viper Venom.

1994 Dodge Venom

While there have been Viper SRT10 and GTS models (the latter being a racing variant), Venom is new. The name was used in 1994, during Chrysler Corporation’s comeback, for a Dodge concept car which sported Viper cues in the grille with classic-Charger-style doors; the Dodge Venom was a rear wheel drive car powered by a 245 horsepower 3.5 liter V6, possibly used as a design study for the second-generation LH series which debuted in 1998. The name was also used by Hennessy’s short-run adapted Vipers, and, more recently, for a paint color.

In related news, Sergio Marchionne announced that there would be a Charger Super Bee model; details of this car are currently unknown. However, Fiat has made numerous versions of its cars to suit different tastes, and Chrysler has begun to do the same, so models are expected to proliferate. Most of these are likely going to have either minor tuning changes or cosmetic packages (such as that of the Chrysler 300C Executive and 300S).
