Its a beautiful car for sure. But its one of those cars that I would own but never buy, its just not that practical. Well, no, I would buy it if i was incredibly rich and so arogant I didn't care about spending lots of money on gas, Insurance, and of course the car itself.

But other than that I love the car and hope to drive one some day.

Indeed, for the price I'd spend on that which I'm sure a good 100k tag will be stamped on it, I could buy something for a lot cheaper & make it faster than find these rich turds bet some pretty & get em, unless they mod there ride also

I think I speak for most members of this forum when I say, who gives a rat's ass?

BTW, show some courtesy and lose the extra jumbo sized pictures.

I have almost always hated vipers, but I like this one for some reason.


And you don't want to mess with VWhobo. Trust me. You'll get put to shame. He has had to deal with tons of ignorant pricks like you who think they know everything and for some reason, I can't seem to think of ONE person that he "lost" against.

I don't think he was being arrogant.
I think he just grew tired of vwhobo's seemingly constant flaming of threads.
Personally, I don't care, because the amount of information and enlightment he provides usually makes up for it.
I guess the maker of this thread just
Can't
Take
The
Heat
/needs to stop writing essays.
Btw, vw's right. Try resizing the pics for those of us who aren't on t3 ^_^

Actually, I was just stating a fact. And my bad about the "Ignorant Pricks like you" part. I should've just said "Ignorant Pricks." That's my bad.

Anything that hits 0-60 in the 3 second range witha price-tag under 100 grand truly doesn't suck. Plus, it has a skidpad rating of 1.05 (well, the old one anyway)

What improvement does this one have over the old one? Road and track hit 60 in 3.8 with the old viper, and quarter mile in 12s, so what improvemtn is there? Is it just a chassis change, or did they rework the engine?

You know, after reading that statement I started bleeding from the nose because I tried to understand where you are coming from but ended up having an anurism.

While I like the sentra, and I wouldn't buy a Viper. There is no way that a Sentra is better than a Viper. The Viper rapes the Sentra in every perfortmance test. And as for the looks, thats a matter of opinion, but most people would probably chose the Viper.

Not only that but why the hell did you choose a SENTRA to compare to a Viper, I mean I can think of many cars to compare to a Viper but the Sentra is near the Bottom of the List.

AHHHHHHH!!!

You hurt my head!!!!

I know they did some body changes like the roof lifts (double bubble look) for more head room. & a couple other small body changes, but not too much info has been given out engine & performance wise yet. All I know are the basics.

Vipers...

have pretty much always been sweet looking, and I love the look of the 06. However I'd probably rather just get something a bit more affordable, or even my baby that I will always dream of having till one day I do if I am willing to spend that much I may as well go all out and find me a 67 500GT, which by the time I can afford that I will be able to afford to fix it up myself if it is currently a mess. I just hope my dream comes true. The some day wife wants the Viper, so we can just share anyways, right?
