Having owned a 2000 Viper GTS prior to
the SRT-10, I was skeptical that this
car would live up to expectations.
It blew them away. The looks,
which I did not like in pictures,
turned out to be nothing less than
gorgeous in black. The power is
improved, the brakes are incredible,
and the car is refined yet not
watered down in any way.
In the brief time I have owned it, I
have won a couple car shows featuring
new Vettes and even a few other
Vipers. I have also taken it to the
drag strip, where it once again
dominates. I have yet to encounter any
stock car that will come close in
performance, including previous Vipers.
Bottom line: This car is AWESOME!
Favorite features include the brakes,
which will literally get you light-
headed if you nail them at 70 mph (they
stop THAT fast); the very comfortable
and better-looking interior; and the
squat exotic-car stance reminiscent of
expensive exotics costing 3 times as
The car needs a "boot" cover for the
sides when the top is down (which it
has for 2004). The top gauge (oil)
reflects in the windshield at night.
The windshield wiper stalk is in an
awkward position and can be hit easily
(embarrassing). 3.07 gears are too
high for this car.
