    Why no DCT/PDK? Seems so ancient with manual.

    Re: 2013 Dodge Viper

    Looking good on pictures, somehow I am not that astonished watching the video. The proportions that did look good on pictures do not translate properly into 3D. Curious to see how the car looks in reality. I also see too many generic styling cues on there. The Viper was always a mean car, already by its concept, but it looks as if they tried to make it look more docile and (marketing) bringing back some attitude with those styling elements.

     


    Re: 2013 Dodge Viper

    Apparently this car will be allowed (through waivers) to race in the ACO -  GTE class.


    Re: 2013 Dodge Viper

    I am not a fan of American cars in general, but this one I love! Together with the Corvette, they form a formidable American supercar team! If I lived in the States, I would love to have one.

    Re: 2013 Dodge Viper

    I don't know, it doesn't really do anything for me. The design seems a little watered down. It looks more like a facelift on the original video rather than a completely new model.


    Re: 2013 Dodge Viper

    Not bad in general, but many koenigsegg/maserati/599 elements... yes

    Haha funny April first, posting a pic of the 2008 Viper... smiley

    Seriously, what is new? Is it new? Yawn! No other emotion... If you're gonna redo a great sports car, try something else... this is a lazy facelift at best. The front is now Miata looking, but then again they don't have a company face so I was not expecting anything. The side, same exact old lines.. wtf?! The rear, same lines and some after thought tail lights..

    All in all it's a cool car, interior seems to be the improvement. It's a dinosaur already, but that's its niche also.

     Mostly Agree with ATZ, don't like it, never really did.


    Re: 2013 Dodge Viper

    For under 100k EUR, I could really see myself buying one but not for more.

    Same goes to the Corvette ZR1...under 100k, I could consider buying it but the price tag is currently in the 140k range. Way too much in my opinion, even if the car has a very nice performance.

    Re: 2013 Dodge Viper

    No offense to any Viper owners here, but the car is crap in the rain, cant clear a small suburban driveway curb without a piece of plywood, smells like a sailboat inside and is horrible on rough roads.. All of that and now the new one looks like a Viper got raped by a TVR Cebera.

    The good things about Viper coupes are..they are not hated by the public, with both windows down at 140mph there is no buffeting inside and when you get bored you can turn the radio off at low speeds and listen to the HUGE injectors click away as they feed it fuel. Oh and it is very fast after 100mph.

    Dammit! That was it. I kept saying to myself, "this car reminds of something else from the 90's from Europe." but I couldn't put my finger on it.

    Exhaust note and engine firing order still make it sound like a Mercury Marine engine. They could have improved that aural aspect a bit.

    Price in US for base version will be under $100k, so that is under 75,000 Euros, but have no idea how they'll price it in Europe.   The old one had an extremely fast Ring time and this one will undoubtedly be faster (ACR version to come faster still).

    I believe that the new one will be totally different (i.e. better)!

    Great specs - even so as we stated many times before - you can't drive such a car in Germany unless you are a pimp! ;)

    Re: 2013 Dodge Viper

    Damn! I thought about that line too but I didn't want to stir you up too much :D

    I just wanted to see you smile, that's all :)

    So question for you, if driving this car makes you look like a pimp, wouldn't the same apply to a Ferrari or Lambo?  I assume you say that because of "over the top looks", like that of a Ferrari or Lambo.

    This goes way to to the late 70's and 80's . At that time corvettes were supposed to be sports cars but were no better then a Ford station wagon around the corners, with very outdated/basic technology .

    The shapes of the car had something very ' naive' for a sports car ( in the 80's ) and in most movies , you could see pimps driving them.  Over here ( as in switzerland it's the same )  the people who bought  Corvettes were wanna be shows off with not much taste , no auto-sport culture, and actually and very often ' dodge people ' .That's where it all started from.

    I think now Corvettes do not have this image anymore over here , at least not to that extent . They are taken more seriously , but you still often see people who drive them, putting chrome rims on them and just cursing around town.

    I must say that to me Corvettes are now an option, as the performance for the money is great . A good friend of mine , owner of several Ferraris , even co-owner of a 458 Cup , has just bought his 3rd Corvette as a track car. That's the car he is the fastest on the Ring with , and he is very fast .

    I don't know about the US but I'm afraid over here in Europe, the Corvette indeed has an image which is related to pimps and a certain business. Smiley It is actually sad because the latest Corvette models are very nice.

    A very good deal as the car is extremely good to drive . Just change brakes and suspensions
