      I really hope this drives down the price on 2nd gen Vipers.
      The first gens are within reach, but now 2nd gens might be attainable.

      Looks great. Nice progression for an awesome car.

      My only observation is the gap between the front quarter panel and the bumper. Refer to the video at about 6:30. The gap seems a little excessive, IMO. But, that is pretty petty. Everything else looks excellent.

      2nd Gens are more than attainable.....unless you scoop ice cream for a living.

      Are these still hand assembled like the previous generations?

      Looks AWESOME, imo.

      I think he's mistakingly referring to the third gen cars as second gen cars.

      Maserati helped with suppliers and the coach-building aspect. The car was designed in-house at Auburn Hills.

      Dodge has a decades long history in motorsports. And the Viper has probably been kicking ass for longer than your daddy has been buying VWs for you.

      Next? YOur personal opinion has a lot of flaws in it, and so it's being questioned, as it simply proves you have very little real knowledge. Do you like being perceived as having very little real knowledge? Makes ALL your opinions pretty much worthless.
      I love cars, but the problem is they are like schroedinger's hobby. They're always in a quantum superstate of being both awesome and a huge waste of time and money... until observation momentarily forces them into one state or another.

      New pictures are much more appealing. Hopefully I'll get to see it tomorrow night at the private opening of the NYIAS!

      Do not F$%#@*% want! Horribly over done and poorly proportioned. A 458 mashed with a Karma and run over by a Corvette for good measure.

      Only thing differntly proportioned than the original GTS is the headlights, being vertical rather than horizontal. Don't see "over done" anywhere except the LEDs maybe.

      Are we looking at different cars?

      i feel like canceling my c63 order and waiting for this. WOWOWOWOWOWOWOW. Finally a decent interior, I need this in Black on red with black wheels. And drop it to 90 000$ and I will buy one. When does it hit production?

      This car is gorgeous. I even like the headlights.

      I agree with many on here saying that it brings them back to being 12. When I was 13 I had a poster of a 1992 Viper RT/10 hanging on the wall of my bedroom.

      I may have to get a poster of the new Viper and hang it in the garage (the wife would not agree to hanging it in the bedroom).!



      Thanks, Chrysler. You (once again) reminded me why I love cars.
      I TCL.

      I'm sorry but that is AWESOME looking.

      It's like what the F12 Berlinetta should've looked like. Yep, I said it:

      The Viper is nicer looking than Ferrari's latest creation.
