A Constant Head Turner

This is the forth Viper roadster I've owned ('1994, 2000, 2003, 2005) and no complaints about any of them. I love the "wow" comments I get when people see the Viper. Corvettes, although great cars also, are a common site everywhere you go. Not true with the Viper. I also love the rear wide track and bodacious rear tires. There may be more comfortable and higher H.P. sports cars, but none as good looking, worry free, cheaper to maintain/repair or fun to drive. I believe the Viper gives you the most bang for your buck.

2005 Dodge Viper Copperhead Edition

Although a bit tight to wiggle into, this car is a beast. Not for the meek at heart. How much more power do you need. Flawless finish, paint, interior...body lines..... Not for a snot nosed kid as it will easily kill you. Love the color and everything inside it!

Absolute fun

I bought my viper a few weeks ago and drove it back from Florida to Texas and never had so much fun doing so. I had always heard about how rough the suspension was and they are not comfortable. What? Maybe if you are 6'3" and 300 lbs. you're not going to be comfortable. Do you really expect it to ride like a cadillac? Would you seriouslly want it to? The viper has an unbelievable amout of torque and if you drive that car and are not smiling the whole time you are either brain dead or you truly know nothing about performance cars and don't appreciate them. I would recommend this car over any other performance car out there for the money it can't be beat......Period

Good car

Well I had 2 vipers and have driven over 55k miles on both a 2000 and 2006 with no issues whatsoever. I like the power and unlike mustang69!i do know how to drive a super powerful car with no traction control. This car are for people who like the attention and the rush a dime a dozen vette could only wish for.

totally over rated

i bought my viper brand new, for the first 10,000 miles in the first two years it was great, the fuel economay stunk, but the performance of the 8.3L v-10 made up for it. the ride was like rolling down the driveway on a mechanics creeper, so it was really uncomfortable. and taking a turn was like a bat out of you know where, everytime i let out the clutch to do some normal driving it chirped the tires and brought un wanted attention from the cops. o and after two years the rear end decided to break out on me rite in the middle of a busy highway in my town. so to be honest id rather have its competiors, the v e t t e, which is what i traded my viper in for, and im much happier with the v e t t e.
