- oustanding power
- Not at all what so ever
once you own a viper, you will never go back to any other car. Had a corvette in 2000 and I sold it to buy me a 1994 viper. I kept it for five years then sold it to buy me a 2001 GTS. I love this car. The next one is going to be another GTS.

- The way the car looks and the power is awesome
- Needs cruise control and stability control
My license plate says it all "1BADVIP". This is my 2nd Viper  previous one was a 1995. Purchased new the 95 was 52000. Wholesaled it for 43000 in 2004. I would think that the value of the viper is not about the cost as much as it is the depreciation, and in this case was great. The Viper is the most highly noticed American car out there even though GM is trying to copy the looks with the new vette. I think the new vette is the best vette yet but is not in the same class as the viper. When the 600hp viper arrives in a few months i will be considering another change....read morehide

- everything is great
A great car I recommend it, it looks wonderful and has alot of power. I wish I could buy it but it is a little over my budget price but i still want to get it when I am a little older and have more money.

- Great styling, wide power band, tight handling, braking second to none
- gas milage, but hey its a V-10!!!
I absolutely love my car. The paint is the best quality I have ever seen for a factory paint job. performance wise, its amazing. true drivers car. I get looks everytime I drive down the road in it... so much so the girfriend is a little worried. Overall the car is just amazing. By far the best performing car I have ever had. And if I ever need to go faster, 10 grand and I have an 800 hp car. What other car can you say that about???...read morehide

- great low end power! nice sounding, chic magnet
- stiff ride, too compact, awkward seating on upward slope, avg cornernig vs competitors
I just bought one this holiday to add to my collection and i must say... it ADDS to my collection. Its a beaty. Performance-wise, its ok for but not stellar for its price range. The low end power is awesome, but try going 80-140, its not as impressive compared to other cars with similar horses. Didnt like the cornering either, but I guess I'm picky. I also own a DB7, which kicks ass and has a much more beautiful interior. Overall, get it if you have a collection. If its you just need one stunner, look elsewhere....read morehide

- Ride quality is surprisingly good, 0 to 60 in low 4s range, styling, 500 watt stereo
- Poor fuel economy -- I fill it up 3 times per week from city driving. Has to get like 6 mpg
Pin you to your seat acceleration, wicked good looks turn heads everywhere. I've even had people take my photo at stoplights. Everyone wants to ask questions. This is not the car for you if you don't like attention. You will feel like a celebrity every single day. 1 Viper will get more attention in the parking lot than 20 Vettes and 911s on a truck on fire.
Now, for the not so vain, it is a great all-around sportscar. I was afraid to buy this car originally due to the reports of it being difficult to drive as a daily driver. I'll admit is a difficult car to drive slow esp. in stop and go traffic. I'm not the best manual transmission driver in the world and I'll probably wear out my clutch well before its time, but the car rewards even bad drivers with great performance and a relatively easy drive.
Cornering and handling are second to none. Switching lanes is basically flick of the wrist. I've never been able to maneuver through traffic as easily in any other car.
The 500 watt stereo has a subwoofer between the two seats. On every other car I've had, I've had to set the bass to the highest possible setting to feel it. On the Viper, at +2 out of +8, the bass is stronger than any other vehicle I've been in.
Exclusivity is another reason I purchased this car. Every other car is a dime a dozen on the streets. Think of how many Boxters, Corvettes, 350Z's, etc. you see on a daily basis. Now, think of the last time you saw a Viper. Personally, I see 1 or 2 a year. To own a car that's as rare as a Ferrari or Lamborghini is an incredible feeling. Not only that, the current body style is likely to last through 2012, so the current style will be current for many more years.
Price: The price of the Viper is comparable to many of today's luxury cars. A used 500SL Mercedes, Jaguar, BMW 6 or 7 series, Lexus 460, Porsche Cayman S, Corvette Convertible or Z06 will all cost about the same as a new Viper. Not only that, a search of Autotrader.com shows that even Vipers made 15 years ago (1992) are still selling for $30K or more.
That's about it. I can't say enough about this car. The only cons are the fuel economy. I have to fill up twice a week, whereas in my old 350Z, I only filled out once every two weeks, so this gets quite expensive. Insurance costs are about the same on the 350Z and Viper, surprisingly enough. The other con is the car is so rare, that you feel awkward driving it to anything, but the best restaurants and stores. You feel a little silly driving a Viper to Wal-Mart....read morehide
