I like the look, it looks smoother. More exotic.

The front end is very 599-ish, but they stuck with the overall Viper look, which I love. Oh, and this is why Dodge rules - "A six-speed manual remains the sole transmission option."

like the looks too but would probably opt for finding an older ACR car instead.

you could put neon under car lights and 20s on a smart car also if you want to turn heads.

This car DOMINATES. This is EVERYTHING the modern Viper should be.

Gorgeous styling
Upscale, beautiful clean interior design
All the technology to put the power to the ground
Light weight
355 rear tires (!!!)

This car has catapulted to the top of my list for the next car.

The Viper is a Beast. There will be some significant markup on this one.

New Viper at NYC Auto Show I work there and watch viper pull in it sounds insane and is beastly in person, they went back to it's roots and looks like updated version of GTS Viper what great looking car. Was never fan of second gen Viper to me it look to much like vette. Love this latest design the Snake is back.

Anyone else hate the color? I wish they would introduce it in black or another color. I too am interested.

What is the base price going to be 135-140k?

I'm generally not a fan of red, but that is one nice looking red on the new Viper.

Vipers + Ferraris are two cars that are perfect in red.

Just plain sick.

I drove my buddy's 2006 Viper 2 days ago. I was surprised by how visceral and raw the whole experience was. The car shakes at idle, the shifter vibrates a lot, the side exhaust makes the cockpit get hot quickly....it was pretty cool. Not sure if the new model will be more refined in these terms.

I've never driven a viper, I'd love to test my luck with the older ones? The ones they say are quick to get you in trouble.. lol


Sounds like quite an experience, and you've got to love the rawness...
