nice picture's...

It looks like a SRT-10 (probably 2003-2005) to me... it's difficult to differentaite RT/10's from the SRT's... do you know the model/year?

the dual painted silver/black (car colour dependant) stripes are a $3000 option.

a Coupe - so it's most-probably the 2006 SRT-10.
the 3rd gen Viper was only available in Roadster/Convertible form between the years 2003-2005, or it could be an earlier GTS model. the alloys on this one match the 1999 model. however, the lights seem to be HID so i'm not sure...

are you guys serious..this is not the new 3rd gen viper, this is the older one..

the new one looks like this...




and this is probably a Gen II GTS or something on those lines, it could be Gen I as well but there was not much of a diff if i remember correctly, but the new Gen III viper is quite a bit different..

I would guess this is a 1996 or something on those lines..

I'm guessing it's newer cause of the fin's on the hood... I belive this design change was first seen in year 2000.

@ahh78: I agree GTS sounds correct...

That is a second generation generation GTS. Lovely machine. It actually looks like a reptile from front. The seats are perfect to hold the driver, its comfortable.

Great pictures Stratos . Good selection of shots too. And that Viper pic might just do it for you at shaadi.com

Btw when you sat in the Viper did you say the famous magic words?
