Being a former Vette owner let me tell you there is NO comparison. This is a street legal race-car, period. Whether you're hunting TT Porsches, 360's or whatever, this car will easily even out the playing field. You want comfort? Buy a Caddy. If you want to make old ladies dive for the emergency lane as you pass at 65mph still in 1st gear, buy the Viper. This car may not be the fastest, quickest or slickest but it sure does rank high in all of those categories! How many other bone- stock American made cars will hit 160mph in 4th -- in less than a half- mile? I love my Bright Silver Metallic Viper SRT-10! (my wife hates it...jealousy!)
Motor, exhaust note and those massive 345's out back (widest production vehicle tire in the world)!
Manufacture the Viper with headers vs. the stock exhaust manifold & delete the crossover pipe to reduce interior cabin temps. Top down in Phoenix or New Mexico during the summer is a recipe for heat exhaustion.
