The Dodge Sidewinder is a concept car unveiled by Dodge in 1997 at the SEMA convention in Las Vegas. It was based on a design by Chrysler's Mark Allen, only two years after he graduated from design school. Officially called the Dodge Dakota Sidewinder, it uses the front-mounted, Viper GTS-R engine to power the rear wheels, sitting on a chassis built by Riley & Scott. It is the futuristic version of a Dodge Dakota convertible.
The Sidewinder's engine is rated at 640 hp (477 kW) and 530 lb⋅ft (719 N⋅m) of torque, which allows the car to hit 60 mph (97 km/h) in just under 4 seconds. The top speed of the Sidewinder is 170 mph (274 km/h), and the car has a 4-speed automatic transmission.
