Pros: uh.. you have to actually know how to drive to drive it
Cons: the time it took to sign the papers
Advice: get over the sticker shock, you will be the envy of your whole community. Everyone else thinks about buying one... you actually had the intestinal fortitude to belly up to the bar and make one yours!ok..its midnight and i keep going into my garage to see if its still there. I now have the silver and black machine. I took my 12 year old son out for a cruise at sunset.. he went to bed just a few hours agon still smiling like the butcher's bull dog on a Sunday afternoon after church. I own a BMW 740, a Range Rover, and a Dodge Ram Truck (one of my favorites). They all get to move over to make room for my new work horse. It makes for a rude, primative ride that asks for no appologies and takes no prisoners. I will go to my grave knowing it was the best investment, pound for pound and horse for horse, that I have ever made. Ok.. i am going to the garage; again.
Pros: Awesome torque and class!
Cons: A sunvisor that is eclipsed by the one in my PT Cruiser.
Advice: Get one before they are gone! It will keep you young!I purchased the first one (which is bright silver) to arrive in SLC. I was was originally going to buy a black one arriving this December. This is the best color by far. I totally love this vehicle. It is more exciting and pure fun than I have had in years! My last four sportscars were a 2001 red Z06, a 2002 black Z06, and two 2003 Z06 corvettes, one was electron blue and one was millennium yellow. I greatly respect and love the corvettes, but this viper is clearly the 'King of the Hill' now! The corvettes are the best daily drivers though. The viper drive always requires a few hours of recovery time to regain my composure, check my pulse and debrief my experience to myself. P. S. I came real close to buying a new Porsche 911 Turbo X50, but this viper exceeds even the GT2! My heart's still pounding from my first 780 miles! Seriously, you must check this car out!
