Hey, let’s face it, Viper’s are hot! Under the hood, along the door sill (on the earliest models), and even in the passenger compartment!
In my visit to the North American International Auto Show this year, I saw the massive hood vents being added to release heat from the new engine coming this way for 2008. The new 8.4L V10 will have 600HP.
What kind of performance threat the new Viper presents to the Z06 remains to be seen, of course. But count on one thing, the Viper will be hot under the hood and in the passenger compartment. Well, count on a second thing, too: Corvette will be back with a hotter performer than ever and just as comfortable inside as ever.
