      But Jamie...hasn't the Viper always had a bit of a kit car look to it?

      I think this is much more nicely done than the previous gen cars, especially when it comes to panel fits and the interior. I get why people might think the front end is a bit too much of a departure, though--it has some strong Ferrari cues to me.

      I agree. It could have fitted as a replacement for the 599 rather than the ugly ass f12 Ferrari is building.

      Personally, I hope to christ that thing depreciates as fast as the last viper did. I ****ing want one so bad, and I hate domestics.

      The show shots look bad. The barn shoot looks awesome.

      What's SRT using for branding? I'm not seeing the purpose of it when both "RAM" and "SRT" are using the same grill/design language as Dodge. Seems like a really expensive endeavour.

      For everyone complaining about the headlights.

      They dont stretch to the A pillar! We finally got what we wanted

      This car is perfect. I understand that everyone has their own opinion but you cant deny that this is a supermodel. It may not be the supermodel that you are particularly drooling over but the damn thing is pure sex

      Wow, standing ovation to Chrysler! Now the count down to see how it drives and performs. Some of these facts and stats are blowing me away.....
      -Highest Torque Output for a NA engine
      -First Pushrod engine with VVT
      -50/50 weight distribution
      -3300 lbs
      -Power to Weight ratio better than Aventador
      -Body made mostly of CF
      -640HP + 600 lb ft + Launch Control will =

      If they could perfect the stability control to maximize track performance, this thing is going to be an absolute track monster. GT-R, ZR1 and 911 Turbo look out!

      And for the record, the design is a home run. Cannot be mistaken for anything but Viper

      The headlights are to Fisker Karma-ish, but DAT ASS.

      Love how they reached with the stars with this one... pretty unique (and fresh) design.

      I think this car will age pretty well, it has a lot of character. (love the rear windshield)

      Not going to get much from that comparison at this point. The C6 is heading into its last year after 8 years of service. While good, the ZR1 is a little outdated to compare to this car being a gen behind.

      For the first time since I was twelve years old I want to buy a giant poster of this car and hang it in my bedroom. WOW - totally blown away. I might have to buy one.

      Well if you're going to pull that one, Corvette Z06 is to Viper as ZR1 is to ACR Viper. Just wait, Pal.

      Oh and the people semi lambasting the new refinement and being all nostalgic about this car characteristically being semi undriveable and ridiculous..

      8.4 liter v10? LOLOLOL.

      ...if anything you could replace the Viper logos with Alfa Romeo badges and I'd bet it would fool most people that didn't already know this was the new Viper.

      Poe's Law is acting strongly with your statement. I cant tell if its sarcastic or if your serious. If you are seriously asking, i believe the ZR-1 is 2hp short of this new Viper. Clearly a noticeable difference.


      And im also in the "omg i fcuking love this car" camp. I eagerly await all the reviews.

      EDIT: Im also incredibly glad they kept the V10 instead of going the FI V8. Does anyone know if there are any significant suspension changes?

      IT'S CALLED POWER TO WEIGHT RATIO. OBVIOUSLY YOU KIDS DON'T UNDERSTAND PHYSICS. 'But the GT500 has more hp...' LOLOLOL

      Job well done Ralph and team srt. A proper dual clutch also needs to be offered though to capture all markets.

      looking at the front of the car reminds me of playing a racing game that has unlicensed cars. they wanted to make a viper but legally couldn't.
      I like the rear 3/4 view and interior though.
      I found a liquor store, and i drank it!

      No problem son. It is annoying reading the same statement made by 12 year olds over and over, but I guess if you yourself are 12, you have the same thought process. Here's a cold one for you and the rest of the internet trolls...in 9 years when you can legally drink.

      It's perfect. I've been obsessed with Vipers since the TV show in the 90s. This side profile is 100% Viper GTS. I want one, badly.

      Word going around is $95k base price, so hopefully that holds true.

      Now, do I think it will go straight over $100k for the premium model with the luxury/tech goodies? Absolutely yes.

      I know I'm stating the obvious but $100k for this car is an absolute steal!

      Wow. I had to stare at it for a few minutes before i realized i was completely in love. That side profile made my heart skip a beat.

      I see a bit of Chrysler Firepower in this car, and thats a good thing.

      There are damn good reasons to love the Viper.

      -V10
      -Fast
      -A big rolling American FU to European sports cars
      -Pretty damn sexy overall looks
