Next generation Dodge Viper rumoured to receive Ferrari V10

New rumours have emerged suggesting that the next generation Dodge Viper may receive a Ferrari-designed V10 engine.

While details are limited, the report indicates that Fiat's CEO, Sergio Marchionne, wants to take advantage of the fact that the Viper is Chrysler's "halo" vehicle. The benefits seem pretty obvious, the engine sharing would reduce development costs (by spreading its use over multiple brands) and the engine pedigree might boost Viper sales.

Like the current generation of Ferrari engines, the next generation of engines will be offered in a variety of different configurations and displacements. If everything goes according to plan, Ferrari and Maserati would get new V8s while the Viper would receive a new pushrod V10.

Despite sounding like a dream come true, we're still a tad skeptical. Only a few months ago Chrysler was attempting to sell the Viper, only to eventually keep it after a lack of serious offers.

I don't think Viper is getting the SAME engine as Ferrari since they are cars in different segment. Most likely a Ferrari-designed engine and share some technology feature on Ferrari.

Still, last time I checked, Viper isn't really as affordable as Civic... so... more than you can afford, pal!

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

When does Ferrari make a street V10?

So for it is just silly speculation.. Viper V10 shares design with their RAM trucks.. granted they are long on the teeth.. but I can't see Fiat have any engines in their design portfolio that is cheap and powerful.

`Ya but spending 10k plus on tune up on a viper would seem ridiculous.
