In comparison to its predecessor, the Viper SRT-10 has a restyled exterior and a larger and more powerful version of the previously utilised 8.0L V10. It retains the double stripes and the roof shape of the GTS.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted
The strongest aspect of the car is acceleration although it tends to oversteer very easily in corners due to a rear-wheel drive configuration and high torque. Its heavy weight makes it useful in Pursuit.
Need for Speed: Carbon
The Viper SRT-10 appears in Need for Speed: Carbon as a tier 3 muscle class vehicle with a $150,000 price tag. It can be unlocked by differing means depending on the player's starting vehicle:
- Exotic Career - Win the Speedtrap event of the Shady Pines territory in Silverton.
- Muscle Career - Take over the Neon Mile territory in Silverton.
- Tuner Career - Take over the Shady Pines territory in Silverton.
It is one of the fastest accelerating cars and also has a high top speed, allowing it to shine on circuits with few corners as it can suffer from understeer.
Need for Speed: ProStreet
The Viper SRT-10 appears in Need for Speed: ProStreet as a Tier 3 vehicle with a $80,000 price tag. It is made available as an optional reward to the player upon them dominating the Autobahnring II (Super Promotion) race day.
It is a competitive Drag and Speed Challenge car with powerful acceleration, which comes at the cost of handling.
An Energizer Lithium edition Viper SRT-10 will be added to the player's garage upon entering the cheat code "WORLDSLONGESTLASTING".
Need for Speed: Undercover
The Viper SRT-10 appears in Need for Speed: Undercover as a tier 2 vehicle with a $195,000 price tag. It is unlocked upon reaching Wheelman Level 9.5. It appears in the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo Wii releases with a price tag of $78,000.
The SRT-10 is one of the fastest accelerating tier 2 cars, being up to par with the Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG and 1967 Shelby GT500. Handling counts as one of its weaker traits. Top speed is 216 mph (347 km/h).
Brad "Nickel" Rogers drives a white Viper SRT-10 with black stripes that is also included with the downloadable Boss Car Bundle. It has a high top speed of 245 mph (394 km/h), overwhelming acceleration and twitchy handling.
- Need for Speed: Most Wanted is the only game in the series to feature the Viper SRT-10 without its double stripes.
