This car is not an easy car to operate. The viper was made to do 3 things. Go like hell, stop well, and corner well. Luxuries like traction/yaw control, heads up displays, and even an awesome radio are not part of what viper is about. If you want those things, go buy a corvette! Nothing turns heads like the viper, so expect a lot of attention, especially from kids. Acceleration takes practice to not break traction. You must learn to press the pedal not stomp on it! If you get a flat tire, plan on a flatbed because the car cannot be towed and I didn't trust the donut you get for a spare. Buy a used rim and put a tire on it. Finally, watch out for the law, because they will be watching for u!
Power is incredible. Its even faster if you are in the passenger seat. Looks are like nothing else on the road, awesome. Will hold a turn up to 0.99 g.
The radio is terrible as are the speakers. Would have been nice if the car came with run flat tires.
Super fast car with excellent
handling. Much more refined compared
to my 1996 RT-10. Iíve had a viper
since 1998 and still own one today
(2004). Never have any problems.
Service is very affordable. Not much
out there than can keep up.
Iíve added a Borla exhaust system
which has a much better performance
sound. Itís a must!
This is not a car of creature comforts.
This is a race car for the street.
Sitting down in the cockpit youíll note
the absence of such luxu-items such as
cupholders and power seats. 6 white
digital gauges present the car's
vitals. The exterior design has to be
the most radical and beautiful form a
car designer could imagine. The snake
head visage of the front fascia, then
flows up and back to meet the twin-
bubble cockpit canopy. Be prepared for
the magical effect the Viper has on
crowds wherever you go. No other car
will dominate the attention of those
around you like the Viper.
V-10 engine, beautiful body design,
race car qualities
Too much body flex, crude interior
needs at least cupholders
After looking at several high-performance vehicles, I was drawn to the Viper GTS. The roar of it's mighty V10 brought back memories of the muscle cars of old. The car has proven to be wicked fast, very comfortable, and with supermodel looks. NOT for introverts, fans will swarm you as though you are a major celebrity. Celebrities: Forget ďblending inĒ. On the track it performs like no other car. Corvette who? You will not be able to wipe the smile off of your face when you own a Viper.
450 horspower V10 (underrated - closer to 500 hp), eye-grabbing good looks, incredibly responsive driver's car
Alpine stereo system sounds decent, but the tiny controls are confusing and dangerous in a car that commands your full driving attention
