The 2008 Dodge Viper is one mean machine, with 600hp, 560 lb-ft torque, and one of the most badass production hoods in the history of the automobile. Dodge's newest Viper will be on dealer lots shortly (if only for a minute before being sold), and the folks over at Dragtimes caught one of the preproduction models right off the assembly line. The Snakeskin Green Viper represents one of the five "Lifesaver" colors, which also includes Venom Red, Viper Violet, Viper Orange, and Bright Blue. Way to sissy up an American classic, Dodge. Then again, with killer looks and a sledge hammer for an accelerator, we wouldn't complain if this baby ended up in the Autoblog Garage regardless of color.
