What does that have to do with what the OP asked? He is obviously interested in an M3 or he wouldn't have listed it.

The Viper and the GTR are at opposite ends of the spectrum. The Viper is a raw low tech beast and very unforgiving (and a blast to drive).

If you can only pay 70k how are you going to affor maintence and such on a used gtr? Seems out of your range.

I would get a new nicely optioned m3 for right around that price with warranty. A 2009 m6 will be costly out of warranty soon. The new f10 550 with a tune will probably be as fast as anything in a straight line except a gtr and way faster than the m3 down a quarter mile

You seem to blow through cars quickly, you are not likely to lose money on the viper. Buy one, flog it (try not to die) and dump it for something else...a GTR when it is even cheaper.

2006 Dodge Viper SRT-10
2009 Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG
2009 BMW M6 Coupe
2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG
2011 BMW 550i Sedan M-sport Manual

All of the above don't fit your description at all. All of those benzes C63 included are terrible on road courses, the 550i is useless as well and way too heavy. The Viper is the worst daily driver in the world and has an 8.4L motor. An 11 second m3 with an ESS supercharger is far from worth it if you can get a GTR. GTR is the clear winner on all accounts but ultimately it's your decision.
