While the Dodge Caliber was the US mainstream brand's core vehicle for its introduction into the UK, the first car to the UK wearing the badge actually arrived in 2004. The SRT-10 (or Viper as it's known in other markets) is about as dramatic as cars can be.

Dodge SRT-10 (05-07)
Stunning styling, awesome power, exclusivity guaranteed
Too many crude features, incredibly thirsty, lacks sophistication

New price range:

£69,795

Parkers Rating:

3 out of 5

While the Dodge Caliber was the US mainstream brand's core vehicle for its introduction into the UK, the first car to the UK wearing the badge actually arrived in 2004. The SRT-10 (or Viper as it's known in other markets) is about as dramatic as cars can be. This updated version of the Chrysler Viper (officially available in the UK between 1999 and 2003) is all about headline figures: 8.3 litres, 10 cylinders, 190mph, 0-62mph in 3.9 seconds.

Unlike the Chrysler Viper GTS, which was a coupe, the left-hand drive SRT-10 is a soft-top. However, it is brash and will be overlooked by many in favour of more sophisticated vehicles available for the high asking price.
