2009 Dodge Viper: Thrifty Trip to Vegas

November 02, 2010


Took the Viper out to the SEMA show this week. Figured, if anything would fit in at SEMA, it's a 600-hp, orange sportscar. Along the way I exercised serious restraint, after all, the highway patrol wasn't oblivious to the fact that thousands of car nuts would be making the trip from L.A. to Vegas.

It paid off. Not only did I not get a ticket, but I'm pretty sure my lazy pace returned around 20 miles per gallon. Not bad for an 8.4-liter V10. I'll get the final numbers after I make the return trip.

And by the way, I wasn't the only eye-catching, orange vehicle on the road. Click through to see who else was making their way up I-15 on Monday. Utah game I presume.
