    Can I see it from the back? I think I saw one on the road from a distance the other day & thought it might be the new Vette, but now I think it was the new Viper.

    Performance wise I'm sure it's better but I prefer the older style GTS.

    Things I discovered that day.

    1 I am not nearly as skilled behind the wheel as I think I am

    2 Middle of the summer in TEXAS the tarmac gets damn hot

    3 Chrysler engineers DO have a sense of humor

    4 Vipers (500-hp 500 ft lb ) are very difficult to Autocross....

    same here.

    but I think it's great that the figures are improving. the car still looks good, but too refined from the GTS's.

    That's only about £45000 at current exchange rates. Hope they do a right hand drive...

    Chrysler / Dodge are bringing a few over to the UK but they are going to be LHD. Oh and somehow they have managed to lose the rights to the name Viper in the UK so they will officially be known as SRT 10's here. Doesn;t have quite the same ring to it really.

    Personally I prefer the looks of the old Viper this one looks a bit bland. Too much Mercedes influence?
