When i saw a concept computer render in Car and Driver a few months ago i hated it. However, the finished product looks very different from that computer render. I love a lot of this car but i dont like that it now has the generic in car gps and such at all, also i'm meh on the front bumper.

"this vehicle should do well over 200mph... roughly 206mph"

and that first video is as amateur and horrible as someone could get... horrible, just horrible

love the car though. love that everything is functional and done for a purpose

That thing sounded so good.

I love everything about it except the front end. Reminds me of a Corvette slightly.

true but its 8.4l and lamborghini has 700bhp from a 6.5l v12 although the viper makes more torque. although im sure Hennessey will have this modified quickly once he gets a hold of one.

I'll def own a Viper before I die. I have a feeling once the Z06 is paid off it will stay my DD and I'll pick up a Viper GTS as a weekend car.

The powerband is way different in a exotic then a pushrod V8/V10. Pushrods make power through the RPM rang. These high reving exotics only make top end power.

Sure, anyone can put a high lift cam into a pushrod V8/V10 and add 100HP... but that also shifts the powerband up really high and makes it drive like crap on the street. It is a similiar concept to putting a huge turbo in an I4.

Would you rather average more power 80% of the time or have a few extra ponies for the 20% of the powerband you can only use here and there?

i dont understand how people see ferrari before viper on this car... it just looks like an evolution of a 90s gts, i mean its on the same base frame just beefed up/lighter.

also
rear wheel = 19x13
rear tire = 355/30ZR-19 r

From the headlights forward I can kinda see Ferrari. The hood reminds me of a C5 Corvette shape that is just more agressive. From the wheels back it is a great example of a Viper.

2013 gt500 and 2012+ ZR1

i think ford and chevy have it covered, granted the shelby probably isnt as much of a track monster as the ZR1 and Viper are.

You're right. I had a '67 Dodge Charger fastback in high school, so i have a soft spot in my heart for Mopars.
