This Viper has Fangs

by grumpit from Georgetown, TX | December 25, 2012

When the Viper Coupe (GTS) was reborn in the SRT10, I was wowed by the styling--it captures all the aggressive 'charm' of the original, but takes it to the next level. From the beautiful and functional vented hood, side-exit exhaust to the rear difffuser. As a piece of sculpture, it could take pride of place in any art gallery. But in reading the reviews, I was disappointed to hear about the lack of edginess in overall driving to inprecise gear selection. All I can say is that I found the complete opposite to be true. The Viper has venom in its fangs! The tune allows uneventful driving in neighborhood traffic, school zones or Walmart parking lots, but give it some throttle and you had better be on your game. As for gear selection, I found the short-throw shifter to be precise with never any fear of selecting the wrong set of cogs. Sure, the transmission is a noisy box of cogs, but nothing to spoil the fun. I won't deny the interior is somewhat understated, and could probably have stood a little more work, but this is a driver's car for sure, and everything you need is there, making for a decent cockpit to pilot this rocketship. Thank goodness for the adjustable pedals, allowing my 6' 3" frame a workable driving position. There is a ton of headroom, but it still requires someone of my height to slump down in the seat a little to see traffic lights or overhead road signs. Seat-lowering kits are available if that becomes too much of a chore. If you want a sporty grocery-getter or chariot to the local golf-course, this is not the car for you. The trunk barely has room for a dozen golf balls, and getting in and out requires a deep breath and a plan for the less athletic among us, but the Viper was never built for that. If you want a car that can give even the most accomplished driver the chance to test their limits, the Viper will deliver. And, yes, I know the Corvette has its admirers, and the Z06 or ZR1 will give this Viper a run for its money on the racetrack, you will never get more attention and positive comments than if you pull up in this car. Despite the excellence of the 2013 model (and who couldn't love the underhood or in-car shots) for me the 2008-2010 Viper Coupe is the perfect marriage of aggression and beauty of styling and performance, with more than enough power for most mortals. Although it could have benefitted from the traction control of the new model!

will kick your a**!

by Snake owner from Texas | April 4, 2011

Wow the car is extremely powerful and if you dont respect it you will be bite by this snake. Acceleration is crazy and it stops on a dime. Handling is great but you will occasionaly loose control if you floor it. This car is not for drivers who are weak at heart! The cockpit is tight and will take time to get used to but puts you in the racer enviroment. Will give you a lot of stares and thumbs up but will sometimes bring too much attention lots of people will like to toy around to see this beast perform (usually kids) but you will need to be descipline. Overall great performing car pretty tricky at first but you will get used to it. Not really a daily driver more for the nice days. Great looking car can stare at it for days and this is the funnest vehicle I have owned. Be careful and enjoy the ride in this beast!
