2015 Dodge Viper GT: Styling Never Gets Old
by Josh Sadlier, Senior Editor on May 4, 2016
Our 2015 Dodge Viper may be a polarizing vehicle in terms of how it drives, but there's no debate about the styling. Or there shouldn't be, at least. I've driven the thing countless times by now, and I still catch myself admiring the rear three-quarter view like it's a poster in my childhood bedroom.
That's no small thing these days. When I look around at other cars with this kind of performance, I see a general lack of inspiration. McLaren? Can't tell 'em apart. Ferrari? Okay, the 458 Italia and 488GTB are beautiful, but otherwise I feel like that company hasn't come out with a compelling design in years. Lamborghini? Paper airplanes with wheels. New Acura NSX? Please. And the new Audi R8 is less attractive than the original.
Meanwhile, the Viper just keeps on evoking the Michael Keaton Batmobile, which is high praise in my world. Styling really matters for this sort of car, and it's one thing the Viper's got down pat.
