Brilliant! That is an absolutely fantastic colour, I don't think I've seen a Viper look that good before. Have fun with it.

Well done, what a beautiful car!

Love that color and I think the wheels look very well on it.

Also, very brave having someone video you the first time you drove the thing. Now THAT could have been a really bad youtube moment.

Enjoy driving it and good luck.

:driving:

It's always a good feeling to have realised a dream like this...enjoy the moment, Viper.

Take it easy on those rear tires, though; if you're a literal child like I am, they won't last long! :burnrubber:

Damn, I never realized Vipers could look so good in blue. Congratulations, you're really living the dream! :D

I think the hood needs more holes :p
They're bigger than previous years due to the bigger engines and I can assure you they are 100% functional. When driving, you can see the distortion from all of the heat pouring out of those vents.

Hear that? That's the sound of a thousand treehuggers crying in terror.

Congrats!
I actually drove past a couple Nissan Leafs (all electric) and thought to myself that I was using all of the fuel that they weren't. :lol:

Ah, but I was watching carefully and noticed there are in fact TWO chicks. They come out of the woodwork now, apparently.
Yes, and one of them asked, when the car wasn't starting, if it was in 'Park'.

The one holding the camera is my step-mom, my youngest sister was briefly in the video, and my mom was the one joking and giving me a hard time about it not being in park.

No proof pics? I allege that all of this, including the Hollywood production quality video, are faked! Note that you cannot see stars in the sky in any of the pictures.

:p

You have to be a complete nutcase to buy a car like that :p

So how is it to drive?

None anymore...
Whoah, 80-90 mph, that's lightspeed! :p

Oh, wait, I do regularly 120+ mph, completely legal. :tease: Yes, with a Viper I'd do regularly 160+ mph and would be much quicker up to that speed, but then again a full tank of a Viper costs the equivalent of 160$ over here...
