2009 Dodge Viper SRT10: Does My Asp Look Big?

July 21, 2010

Huh. That's weird.In my mind, the first-gen Viper GTS coupes were always far sexier cars than the second-gen 2009 Dodge Viper like the orange leviathan in our fleet. The second-gen coupes, I recall thinking when they debuted, have too much S2000 influence and too few shapely curves.

Then I spotted this red first-gen Viper in the wild, and I was really taken aback by how much it has aged. Visually, it is far more dowdy than I remember. Frumpy, even.Amazing what time can do.

But that's just the back. From the front, the first-gen still makes an impact.

Or am I nuts? Talk to me -- which looks better, the old or the new?
