2015 Dodge Viper GT: Coolest Car At School
by Brent Romans, Senior Automotive Editor on October 5, 2015
If you own a 2015 Dodge Viper, chances are you've got another vehicle in your fleet that is better suited for transporting kids to school. (No doubt Dodge will happily point you to the Durango or Grand Caravan.) Then again, it all depends on how you define "better." If you measure by kid smiles, other parent envy and all-around awesomeness, then the Viper might indeed be your new school bus.
Granted, you do have to tell your little passenger about the proper way to enter and exit, otherwise you'll risk having to explain to your significant other how Little Johnny got first-degree leg burns. But after that, the Viper's ready to go. My Recaro booster seat actually fit perfectly in the passenger seat, which isn't always the case with sport seats.
It's just fun to drive a Viper around, and the sense of occasion is amplified by the fact that you see so few of them on the road. My four-year-old boy was quite taken with it as well. After a drive home from school when I might have fully uncorked the V10 once or twice, he asked: "Daddy, can you save this car for me so I can buy it when I get older?"
