    One night I look out my window on to the quiet street,
    a silent tear runs down my cheek,
    While I gaze into the distance without a blink.
    Suddenly I hear a thunderous roar,
    from an engine like none before,
    how many cylinders 10 maybe more?
    When I saw the headlights I started to get hyper,
    and confirmed my thoughts when they got brighter,
    'cause what I saw was a brand new Viper.

    Here’s my thought, a 100+ thousand dollar car, not a huge amount of customers. I think if they made a V-8 ( yes I know, travesty right?) but the car looks so badass that on looks alone it would sell. If they made a version similar to the corvette, which does have many many levels of the car, they would sell big time. If they made a 60,000$ viper I’d buy it tomorrow...100+ can’t swing it.

    Vipers are the coolest in my honest opinion!!!! VIPER was my first real favourite! I had my first 1:24 scale Burago model (Red with white stripes GTS 1997) - First time ever i saw VIPER was in a Need 4 Speed first game! - Then i bought in 1998 PC game VIPER RACING - and to this day i play it ! In Gran Turismo 2 i absolutely love Viper GTS - - - - - - Viper all the way - i wish i had more funds to buy one IRL! :)

  • NeedForSpeed2004
    NeedForSpeed2004 Month ago

    Actually found out some of the reasons the Viper died off mainly had to do with obsolescence. When the Hellcat was initially brought up, that's mostly all people talked about; the Viper was barely ever mentioned. Also, when the C7 Corvette came out, the Stingray was pretty close in performance with only 460hp, and then the Corvette Z06 came out and overshadowed the Viper with 650hp (Viper had 645hp). The Viper outperforms the Corvette Z06 only by a little bit for a higher price than the Vette, and to people, it apparently wasn't worth it. Also, since safety regulations started requiring side impact airbags which the Viper can't support, they wouldn't be able to sell it anyways (not that I'd care about not having side airbags in my car). Hopefully, with the possibly upcoming gen 6 Viper, they get all that shit figured out while still making the Viper an extremely hardcore supercar.

  • NeedForSpeed2004
    NeedForSpeed2004 Month ago

    There could be a gen 6 Viper coming in the future, but I hear it's gonna have a V8 instead of a V10. If that's true, we need to start a movement and convince Mopar to continue the big-ass OHV V10 tradition. I'd want the engine to be (as I've already said) a pushrod V10 with a displacement of at least 8.5L, and I want at least 800hp naturally aspirated.
