      front wheels look a lil on the small side even though the tires are 295's

      maybe an inch bigger in diameter?

      Almost perfect update to the Viper. Amazing looking car.

      Ok, I'll let you get away with overdone and derivative but poorly proportioned? It's got the classic long hood with tapering rear that has been a part of so many famous cars. The first thing I thought of when I saw this (besides previous vipers of course) was E-Type!

      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.



      edit:

      looks much better with the race front end.

      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?

      ?
      It will base under $100k, with optional equipment will go over $100k.

      I love it.

      The only minor issues I have with it:
      --Front lip sticks out a bit much for my tastes
      --Stupid LED strips in the headlights
      --I'm not big on the roof "bubbles" yet

      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.

      X2. I keep going between loving it and feeling like something is wrong with the front end. Different lighting and angles make me change my mind. For example:

      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.

      It looks like the styling of 5 different cars all stitched together.

      No doubt the performance will be epic in all respects, no matter what you think of the looks.

      I think it looks amazing. Possibly the best looking current American car.

      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.

      Gorgeous.

      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.

      I dare you to find me someone (who is not a lifelong Corvette enthusiast) who choose the C6 ZR1 over this.

      This car will be a classic. Crysler could charge $200k for this thing, and they'd probably be able to sell it for that.
