Apparently Dodge has decided that 600 horsepower and insanely aggressive styling are features enough for the 2008 Dodge Viper, because the Dodge Viper offers little else in the way of creature comforts and luxuries.

The 2008 Dodge Viper comes with few standard features, and Edmunds finds that it "makes no apologies for its lack of key luxury and safety features." This sentiment pervades reviews read by TheCarConnection.com, as Cars.com reviewers feel that the Dodge Viper 2008 "seems to say, 'if you disapprove, buy something else.'" When it comes to the standard available features, Edmunds lists "power-adjustable pedals, full power accessories, a tilt steering wheel, keyless entry and a seven-speaker, 300-watt audio system with a six-disc CD changer." The 2008 Dodge Viper ACR offers similar standard features.

The options list on the Dodge Viper 2008 is minimal and even includes the choice of stripping some features from the Dodge Viper ACR. Motor Trend writes that "40 pounds can be removed by opting for the 'Hard Core' package, which deletes the audio system" and "underhood silencer pad, trunk carpet, and tire inflator" on the Dodge Viper ACR, making for an even quicker and more formidable racer. Standard 2008 Dodge Vipers feature the option of "a navigation system combined with SIRIUS Satellite Radio," according to Kelley Blue Book. ConsumerGuide says that various trims and color packages are available on the Dodge Viper 2008, including a $3,000 Dual Stripes option.

Conclusion

Features just add weight on a purebred race car like the 2008 Dodge Viper, so Dodge has done away with many of them.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
