Vipers are stupid...they just tried to put gobs and gobs of power by using a modified HD truck engine and puttin it into a car. Didn't work. Beats the Vette, sure, but I know of a "family sedan" that can beat the RT10's (0 - 60 in 4.. The GTS and GTS R are faster than that @ 4.3, but they are trying to get around engineering. That is why a V8 (that's is less than half of the size of that 8L engine in the Viper) is placed in a well-engineered car, the Lotus Esprit (pronounced eh - spree, not e spirit), and kicks the crap out of any of the Vipers at the price of the RT10!!! And it is a whole lot more exotic too!!!

Ah, but would the poor man go after over priced exotic car or nicely tuned power machine, for much less! SPAMMan if u could tell me a "family seday" that could go 0-60 in less then 4.0 seconds , please tell me, cuz i will get my but up right now and go buy it!!! Well they aint that bad to tell ya the truth! SPAMNot bad at all! SPAMYeah i think that the new look for the snake car is pretty vicious too. SPAMBut it beats the pants off the older look, expecially the crappy '93. SPAMI certainly would take it, but a bit to pricey...heck what am i talking about pricey, im the one posting Ferraris everywhere!!! Also known as the "Hyper Viper" it comes w/ about 500 HP, its called the "Hyper"-Dodge Viper SRT-10.
This pretty car does 0-60 in 4.0 sec, comes w/ an 8.3L SPAMV-10, and nicely priced at around $73,000! clocked at over 195 mph, thats pretty good for a 70 grand car!!! Also, it did the 1/4 mile in 12 flat, not bad at all! SPAMBut it is a heavy 3400 lbs, so that would definantley put drag on it!!! There is also an 833 Viper out, but thats a review for another day!!! Well not to sound like a spokes person, but i kinda like the car, it gives Doge a whole new attitude! SPAM Tell me this aint a pretty car!

Did you know that that Modena up in the first post had its aerodynamics actually designed by their F1 engineers? It has one of the lowest drag coefficients to date, only surpassed by a handful of cars, including the "banana car" which I believe was created in the 80's by either GM or Chrysler which was tied for first. And you guessed it, it was shaped like a banana.

But .... I drive a truck - F150 SuperCrew. I make the boys heads turn as I go by. At first I thought it was me, but low and behold it was the truck.

Yeah im guessing that it is kinda both in that case! Im sure that that truck is pretty nice, i like them as well...but if ur into the XK versions of the pretty jags, might i suggest a pretty looking car...i think that u would like this as well...this XKR is almost identical to the XK8, but comes with much higher performance! SPAMTell me if u dont like this one....
