BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK....VIPER
Pros: RAW POWER
Cons: NOTHINGAWESOME......No other car in its class for the money....TORQUE MONSTER.....
Pros: I personally like the twin turbo
Advice: Get itThis car is amazing, i got the 1000 hp twin turbo kit put on it, i also had it bored and stroked, so now instead of a 8.5 liter, i have a 9.7 liter engine. i put a cold air intake, nos, and some sweet tires, they're basically slicks but they have a line through the middle so it's legal. My viper can go from 0-60 in 1.63 secs, over 1200 bhp(with the nos) around 1135 without, and over 1000 ft/lbs of torque. all i have to say is, AMAZING.
Pros: twin turbo package
Cons: gas mileage
Advice: don't know what your missing until you get itI just got this car last week. Its yellow with black interior. I ordered it in early December becouse i sent it to hennessey motorsports and got the venom 1000 twin turbo package on it. the car does 0-60 in less than 2 seconds. Top speed is about 255 mph. The viper is a very good performance car for a low price compared to other competitors. As far as horsepower the viper dominates.the car has 1000.1 horsepower and 996 steight rear wheel torque.
Advice: nothingthis car kicks ass when it comes to racing
Pros: COMPLETLY REFINED
Cons: STEERING IS TWITCHY
Advice: YOU WILL NOT REGRET ITI OWN A HIGH END COLLISION REPAIR FACILITY AND HAVE HAD THE CHANCE TO WORK ON AND DRIVE CARS FROM THE FERRARI 550 MERANILO TO LAMBORGHINI DIABLOS WITH LATE MODEL HIGH END PORSCHES,LOTUS,BMWS,CORVETTES AND VIPERS IN BETWEEN.THE 2003 DODGE VIPER SRT-10 IS THE CAR TO HAVE, AND YOU CAN WORK ON THE CAR. IF IT'S MAJOR YOU CAN TAKE IT TO A QUALFIED DODGE DEALER. THESE CARS ARE BULLET PROOF.I ALSO HAVE A 99 VIPER GTS,(BEAUTIFULLY STRONG AND RELIABLE).THE 2003 SRT IS TOTALLY IMPROVED,FRONT TO REAR TOP TO BOTTOM.I HAVE DRIVEN LATE MODEL MERCEDES AND BMW CONVERTIBLES AND THE TOP ON THE NEW VIPER IS AS QUIET,TIGHT AND WELL DESIGNED.I KNOW I WON'T SELL MY 99 GTS,AND I DID NOT KNOW IF I WOULD KEEP THIS 03 VIPER BEFORE I DROVE IT,BUT 12 HOURS OF OWNERSHIP AND IT'S NOT LEAVEING MY SIGHT UNTILL AT LEAST THE 05 COUPE COMES OUT-MAYBE!!! P.S.THINGS IMPROVED BRAKES/THROTTLE RESPONSE/RIDE TIGHTNESS/RIDE COMFORT/FIT & FINISH/HEATING AND AIR CONDITIONING/STEREO/ENGINE TEMPERATURE/
Pros: The ENGINE, baby, the engine
Cons: the interior isn't great, it's not very sleek inside, compared to the outside look
Advice: Make sure you have another car for everyday driving!!!I saw one of these when I was passing by a car dealer in L.A., and I knew I had to have one. People have told me in the past that they weren't very comfortable, but I read these test drive reviews when I got home to see. People actually RAVED about their comfort. This is one of the neatest, fastest, sports cars I have owned...I basically bought it before I even test drove it, it looked so stylish and fun. If you've got the $$$ to afford this sweet car, GO FOR IT! The new redesigned ergonomic seats are really comfortable!
Pros: More power than ever and a real convertible top
Cons: Outrageous comic-book-hero styling is toned down
Advice: Black might look like the Batmobile but silver is easiest to keep clean.More fun than ever before. The boy-racer styling that many of us loved about 1991-2002 snakes now yields to euro-looks that can compete with any exotic. Most everything about the car has been improved. Ergonomics. Seats. Brakes. Aerodynamics. Power. And now a top that you can remove and not fear the unexpected thunderstorm!
