License to fly

I've owned BMW's, Porsche, Corvettes and one used Ferrari. Nothing has the potential this car has. I did add two layers of Dyna Mat Extreme to the entire interior to cool it down and reduce the noise, worked great, no other complaints save for the clutch is pretty stiff but what would you expect, the car is a monster.

Hungry Power Horse

I own a 2004 White Mamba Viper with 17,000 Miles. This Car has some after market upgrades to help the power however it doesn't need any help in that department. This car is mind blowing at how fast it is bone stock, as well as how mean it sounds with no exhaust upgrades. The upside to this car is more than just raw horsepower. It is the plain fact necks will break trying to watch this car fly down the road, lets be honest we see corvettes everyday but how often do we see that sexy snake slithering down the road. I take my car to car shows and out to do street events every month and no matter were I go people love it. Well enough bragging lets look at the down side, this car is like a oven in the summer due to that big power house v-10 and exhaust pipes right next to your feet, it well cooks your feet alive in the summer. You can forget about driving this car in the summer with your top down unless its dark outside because you need that ac on max just for your feet. As far as trunk space, good luck even getting anything in the trunk its half the size of any cars truck. Ya I know sports cars aren't grocery getters, but lets be honest we want to drive this car every time we can. It is truly a bummer we can't use it for anything but to cruise, race, or show it off. The worst part to this car for me is never ever take your hands off the steering wheel. Due to the width of the tires this car will follow any dip, groove, or slight change in the road and when I say follow I mean you will be two lanes over before you know it if you aren't hanging on and always alert. So to conclude this generation of the Viper is extremely impressive the power house 8.3 liter, 505 cubic inch motor boasting a impressive 505 ponies and 525 foot pounds of torque with a max 6000Rpm range is a motor not many cars in this price range can even compare. The body styling is very aggressive and eye catching from the front it looks as if the viper really will sting you. However from the back sadly it looks like a dodge stealth very plain and unimpressive if it wasn't for the stance and the diffusers the rear end would be a total fail and lets face it with power like this most everyone will be looking at your tail end. So why not give them something pretty to look at. The interior on the Mamba is very stylish and to be honest one of my favorite parts of the car. This two tone red and black interior is very impressive and flows together very well, so well in fact I had two corvette owners like the interior so much they are in the process of converting there interiors to match. Last point the price range on this generation of viper is actually one of the most affordable High end sports cars in its class. No car pushing over 500hp stock besides maybe a good find on a Ls7 Zo6 is priced competitively in the 40-45k range which yes is the going price on these vipers and yes they book a lot higher but the market doesn't agree with the book values just yet someday I think yes. So YES PEOPLE BUY ONE! You will not regret this car unless you wanted a putt putt car that your wife and daughter can take to the mall.

Great investment

by from Syracuse, N.Y. on July 18, 2013

Bought a 2004 Dodge Viper Mamba Edition with 13,000 miles. Unbelievable power, and torque. Car handles like a dream. Blows away Corvettes for performance, handling, and looks. Great purchase.

If you are a fan of fast and furious roller coasters, this car is meant for you. But keep in mind, your in total control of the most extreme machine you've ever sat in. You must be a mature and talented driver to tame this snake. If you are this car is for you. This car is the ultimate driving machine.

If you're in the market for a performance vehicle and aren't looking for the luxury amenities, then the dodge viper will put a child's grin on your face. The viper is a reliable car needing only routine maintenance. Being American made and a work horse, parts are not imported or cost a boat load. Most mechanics will work on the vehicle as well!
