front wheels look a lil on the small side even though the tires are 295's
maybe an inch bigger in diameter?
i do like it but something about the front end from certain angles looks a bit off. as if the portion beyond the front wheels is a little under proportioned for the car.
in my mind mounting the lights a little higher with a bigger grill opening and less hood vent would clean thing up and make it look a little less penis mobile.
looks much better with the race front end.
they should make sure thats in the in house mod catalog

I for one like it. It seems like a nice evolutionary design for the exterior. The interior is just an amazing improvement over the previous generations. For my money, this interior is far better than that of a 'Vette - but that's just basing the viper off these pictures (obviously). The C7 better have a higher quality interior to compete with this (cross fingers for CTS-V equivalent).
With all the updates and advanced materials, there is no way this is staying south of $100k. It seems like it might be a $120k car. Although it might be priced competatively against the ZR1.
If it were competing for my $100k, I think the Viper would win (assuming this is the type of vehicle I wanted).
Does anyone else see some hints of 456 in it, or am I imagining things?
Totally love it, this thing brings me back to my 6th grade 3-ring binder inserts!
The one thing I am not absolutely fapping over (and this is really reaching) is the integrated front splitter-thing. I think it'd look better if it were a little less, uhh, integrated.
Again, I flippin love it and am totally nitpicking here.
LOVE THE FRONT:
Grossed out by the front:
I don't know what it is but I need to see this car in person or in motion to really be able to tell...
Regarding my 'truck' hub comment: I'm aware they've always had six; I thought I recalled reading somewhere that the 92-93 used the same hubs as the 91-96 Dakota. Thus my jab at them being 'truck parts,' and the implication that they're still using the design today because perhaps it's a hub from somewhere else in Dodge's parts bin.

Now: 2013 GLI • 2004 Dakota 4.7 4x4 • 2003 Mustang GT à la Vortech V3
Then: 2001 2.5RS • 1996 328is M-Sport • 2000 2.5RSTi • 1999 Mustang GT • 2002 IS300 5MT • 2002 RSX • 2006 Outback 2.5i
This car is what happens when a front engined GT doesn't have to comply with Euro pedestrian standards.
Looks freaking badass. Rumor is the GTS is $137k which is a little steep . . .
Has the third best power to weight ratio behind the Bugatti, F12. Beats out an Aventador, ZR1, 911 Turbo (not sure which one).
I'll take one in black with some HRE's or ADV.1's, please.
If this comes to the UK I'll be buying without a doubt. The Viper is my childhood dream car and the new design is unbelievably sexy and the motor goes without saying. I've always wanted a Viper and I'll be more than willing to take the tax disc raping involved with purchasing a 2013. I'm not kidding. No idea how I'd explain it to the girlfriend, but I'm sold.
I can't stop looking at this car.
It's so compelling. It has the same feel as the first time I saw a first-gen RT/10, and then first time I saw a second-gen GTS in the mid-1990s.
I think this is a car that epitomizes American cars, and it's something that our car culture can be proud of.
It doesn' thave 4wd, it's doesn't utilize a twin-turbo motor or a 6-valve per cylinder high-reving design, it is simply a monstrous engine that puts out thoundrous torque and huge horsepower. But, now it's modernized.
The body is fantastic. The 3rd gen vipers never appealed to me because they were so angular. This one brings backs the sinuewy body of the 1st- and 2nd-gen vipers. It has just enough edges and dropoffs that it maintains its badass image, but enough curving lines that it really is a beautiful car.
I also welcome the addition of stability control. One of the big drawbacks of getting an older Viper is their utter untractability in inclement weather or on crappy roads, etc. Hopefully this thing stands a chance of being a daily driver, or even a reasonable weekend road-tripper.
As stated, I have not been this excited over a car in years.
