      The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.

I like it. A bit different but still has it's "Viperishness" intact. I really like the back view, very cool.

Harry, I am with you half way, I like it, but I dont either, and its not that I hate it, just need to get used to I guess, but it still has the old Viper lines in it.

I love it, they kept the styling close enough to the last two gens so that it screams VIPER!!!!!!!, yet is more evolved in appearance. Wonder if it still has some evil tendancies too though.......

BTW... I hear it's not a "Dodge" Viper anymore. Chrysler is starting a new "SRT" brand.

If only they made a car that looks like that, that the average person could actually afford to buy!

Wouldn't that be nice ?, I know the lighting is in play here, but is it painted a red or a burgundy?, or something in the middle, either way I like the shade whatever it is, now thats shiny

Virgil, I still like the original Viper too, but I never really liked the coupe, it just looked funny to me, but not this one. Least the kept a lot of the original Viper lines in this new one, and mix them with the new lines

Maybe it's new mood paint. I'm going out tomorrow to buy 2 or 3 of them. One each in a different color.

It looks good. That front end appears to have some later model Ferrari styling cues adapted into it.

Is it the Dodge Viper or the SRT Viper ? , I have heard that SRT will become its own little brand

Did you read the previous posts???

A PROPER U.S. Supercar IMHO.

Every angle is excellent and it's the first redesign that I like of this car. I loved the original when it debuted and this is the next step. The front has a tad Ferarri in it [not a bad thing], the rear is finally proper and sweet looking.

The V10 still has that odd throat to it. 8 cylinders have a certain tempo that most of us are used to and a V10 seems strange [still]. But the exhaust throat is the best I've heard from a V10 [being on Vid and not in person].

I like it better than a Vette and i'm a Chevy guy mostly [Fords are great as well, I'm not one of those]. But I still like the exhaust note from a co-workers 2012 GT500 better. I got to drive that one so maybe I'm prejudiced.

Still, all in all, A Grand Slam in my eyes.

Very nice.

Bob

They did for a couple years because they had gone bankrupt, I think Cerberus or Mercedes may have wanted it dead too.

headlights are a lil too Vette for my liking, but the fact that it looks like the late90's GTS is much better than the last design. If it were in kit form, i'd actually buy it. FWIW it's also gonna be added to Forza Motorsport 4 soon, I saw (for any of you Xbox folks)

SRT is alive and well, and still part of Chrysler. http://www.drivesrt.com/

BTW, Hummer was part of GM.
