2014 Viper, an exhilarating and very drivable exotic!

2014 Dodge SRT Viper 2dr Coupe (8.4L 10cyl 6M)

Review

The 2014 SRT Viper is a blast to drive. No need to downshift if you need to pass on the freeway. Steering is very sensitive while driving. Negotiating turns in a parking lot requires a little more strength, probably be due to the front tires being larger (295) in width than the rear tires of most cars. Clutch is very stiff when starting out in first gear so driving shoes or hard soled shoes are recommended. Suspension is very stiff. Cabin can get warm. You definitely get an exotic super-car without spending half a million dollars. The Viper is more than a handful so a healthy respect for it is a must for enjoyment. If you're looking to have a unique American-muscle super-car, this is it.

Favorite Features

Styling is very competitive with other exotic super-cars. Thick steering wheel helps with being confident with the steering. Widest rear tires on a production exotic car. Engine sound on acceleration is very pleasing. Rear-view camera is a great help for backing into parking spaces and preventing collisions with other inattentive drivers in parking lots. The drivability of the Viper is awesome for an exotic. I was able to comfortably drive this car without feeling scared of the power and losing control in turns.

Suggested Improvements

The addition of a sturdy skid-plate to protect the front splitter would be a great help in entering/exiting ramps to parking lots or fuel stations that may have a steep grade to prevent front end damage.
