Saw a brand new SRT10 last evening,and I really liked the Rally red color & the wheels..
Now I'd get to see more of these on the road. It would be the ideal sports car to have, especially at that price. Forget the others in the category, the Viper's gonna stand out in all areas..!

Its pointless because as long as the Corvette (especially the Z06) is there, Viper is for only bragging rights nothing else.

blaze, i dont think a Viper is all that fun to drive man. I'd rather drive a slow car at its limits than putter around town in a 500 hp supercar. Even on track. A small lightweight car is much more fun.

But I digress.

dude that was a joke ...about when they say its cheaper ! from 88K to 83K isnt much cheaper. Someone ready to shell out 83k shudnt have a problem with 88K either i guess!
