This has been my dream car since it was first introduced, and finally found one at the right price and took it home. This beauty is a beast, just total power once you press the pedal. Highly recommend for those who never owned a sport car, the torque is powerful! The roadster is the best as you can really let go in the wind, though I have a very cold AC, no need with the top off. Highly recommend to purchase an aftermarket hardtop and windows, as the soft top and zipper windows just don't cut it. As for attention getter, this is it, everywhere you go, people wants to see it, kids ask tons of questions and be prepared to get photgraph. It's the ultimate sportcar!!
The body style, side exhaust, the torque, the POWER!!
Aftermarket hardtop and windows, better dash paint, after that nothing else!
This car is a blast to drive! Always gets looks and smiles. Do not buy this car if you are shy. Also, do not buy this car if you are an inexperienced driver. Tons of power and gobs of tourqe may be a handful if youre not used to it. This car is not friendly with bad weather. Do not reccomend driving in the rain. Stock top and side windows are not the best. Also be ready for every teenager in a Camaro or Mustang want to race(and a couple of adults in Porsches). The stock radio sounds like a tin can. I leave mine off and listen to the mucic of my 488 cube V-10. This is the most fun car Ive had - definitely a toy.
Styling. 12 years old and still stands out. Engine and performance.
Many aftermarket items are availalable. Hard top and windows suggested.
It has tremendous load of torque that can be felt at every gear. Comfort level is better than expected. It gets very good gas mileage on highway (21 MPG) due to the overdrive 6th gear. Attract attention like no other cars on the road (except for the Murcielago). If you drive a car for so long and get used to it, you'll forget how good looking it was to you (that's why you buy it in the first place), and eventually get bored with it. That is not the case with the Viper. The attention it gets, from the time it starts rolling out of the garage until the time it arrives at the destination and parked, will assure you that you're driving one of a few best looking vehicles on the planet.
Kids and teenagers go crazy in front, behind, and around the Viper. Adults (young and old) go crazy in front, behind, and around the Viper (although they pretend like they're really calm). Other only 2 features, including the stereo and A/C, are just icing on the cake.
the side pipes were the reason I bought
a 95 since they stopped making them in
96... . the attention is ok, its not
from cops or women (unfortunately) but
other gear heads like myself.. the car
is bullet proof but when something does
break, it is expensive.. insurance is
actually cheap since I'm 41 and its a
4th vehicle ($50/month full coverage)..
the car grips and runs hard, 60 in 4
and 185 type numbers... it is a very
hot car in traffic with heat from
engine and side pipes.. and can get
squirley in the rain till you learn how.
having fun with tuner cars and
supercharged muscle cars.. I eat em
up.. vettes stay away.. this car has
some slight mods that keep it quicker
than anything around ... going from
second to third at 6000 rpm is pure
at 6'2" my head hits roof..buffeting at
high speeds (100 to 150) can be solved
by removing rear glass..it does not
like reverse.. atlow speeds it bucks
you due to non slipping clutch.. rear
