Oh boy! Can't wait! I want Corvette Racing and the Viper to battle it out and be dominant (American teams)
Patrick Schalk Jul 05, 2011
Haha we aren't fighting at all. I just thought it was interesting and it was in my mind at that time and I can't put it anywhere else.
Lukas Lebs Jul 05, 2011
Lol who cares of new viper lets fight about tge vette
Patrick Schalk Jul 04, 2011
Ahh. Well that's just what MotorTrend said. I'm really interested to see what happens. I heard they are working on a better frame and tons of other stuff. The 60th anniversary is gonna be awesome
Ken Madison Jul 04, 2011
Patrick, GM already said the base model will have the 5.5L from the C6R. Detuned ofcourse! Something like 450 HP.
Reinaldo Puchu Piñate Jul 04, 2011
It's fun to make rumors... So much rage lol
Matt Robbins Jul 04, 2011
Remember the rumors before the C4 and C5 was released that it was going to be a midship V6? That's just another one of those pointless rumors by editors talking out of their you know where
Patrick Schalk Jul 04, 2011
Off topic, but I just read in MotorTrend that the new C7 might have a 3.0 Turbocharged V8. Pretty crazy
Matt Robbins Jul 04, 2011
Yes!!!!! I cant wait for this! Best news I have ever read on CarBuzz!!
Phillip Greene Jul 25, 2011
no sir the venom 1000 IS much faster than the bugati no numbers to argue over they they went head to head same track same day the hennessy is fastest car u can buy
Andy Rogers Jul 06, 2011
Anyways, love the Viper. I'm not so sure of I'm ready for a "usable" Viper though
Andy Rogers Jul 06, 2011
@Chris Everyone has made claims. I always say BS until they do it. Hennessey 1st said the Venom GT would do 262mph. Then the Veyron SS came out and they said the Venom would do over 270mph. Sure...
Douglas Orellana Jul 05, 2011
This is one bad a** car!!
Jack Higgins Jul 04, 2011
I would never buy a dodge. Only fords for me.
Chris Penza Jul 04, 2011
@baris I saw leaked pics of the car and supposedly it can do 275mph
Daniel Lay Jul 04, 2011
Its still a dodge....
Reinaldo Puchu Piñate Jul 04, 2011
The corvette has alot more years of history behind it but the viper is a strong contender. Fun car... I've heard
Matt Robbins Jul 04, 2011
More like affordable sports car Sam. The regular Corvette is no supercar. Only the ZR1 is a supercar, and it's more expensive than a ACR.
Sam C-h Jul 04, 2011
No the best American car is the corvette, I know its rubbish compared to this but the corvette is the true "affordable supercar"
Elijah McCord Jul 04, 2011
Actually the best car to come out of america is the SSC Ultimate Aero
Matt Robbins Jul 04, 2011
Such a beast. I love ACRs
Tom Franquelli Jul 04, 2011
Ew. I'm sure it's wonderful, but no.
Ryan Chamberlain Jul 04, 2011
it is a icon car for sure
Shane Carroll Jul 04, 2011
My favorite color scheme
Andy Kleschick Jul 04, 2011
One of the best. Definitely the best car to come out of dodge. Runner up would be either the old charger or any challenger.

@Jeremih But where are you going to get the same performance and excitement for that price? Is nowhere the answer? (yes)
Reinaldo Puchu Piñate Jul 04, 2011
Supplies?! Make it out of straight titanium.
Phil Freire Jul 04, 2011
Ralph Gilles is the man!!!!
Aaron Contic Jul 04, 2011
this is going to be an epic return
Phillip Greene Jul 25, 2011
that is an acr and if ur talking nuremburg no this monster right here has the record
Andy Rogers Jul 06, 2011
@Ken Doesn't the Gumpert Apollo hold the record?
Lukas Lebs Jul 05, 2011
It looked like something from the 90's. And the curbs still do in the front n the back
Gavin McDaniel Jul 05, 2011
But yeah I've seen this exact color combo ACR and it was breathtaking, never seen a viper look better.
Gavin McDaniel Jul 05, 2011
@Reinaldo Mercedes SLR McLaren isn't mid engine but is an exotic
Shane Carroll Jul 04, 2011
Exactly. This car is an axe-murderer on wheels. And that's exactly why I love it
Matt Robbins Jul 04, 2011
Call it a muscle car, or call it an exotic, it doesn't matter. It's a Dodge Viper. It's in it's own earth shattering class. There's never been anything like it, nor will there ever be anything like it again if the tree huggers get their way.
Santiago Aristizabal Jul 04, 2011
Look anywhere at it will say it's a muscle car because the idea behind muscle car was big engine small car and that's what this is I ve actually been inside one of this cars and it's tiny
Daniel Lay Jul 04, 2011
Def a supercar. Even tho I don't like it.
Ken Madison Jul 04, 2011
Your right. The 2012 ZR1 set a 7:19, only car ahead of it is the GT2 rsr. If some car is going to knock off the ZR1, I hope it's the ACR V
Reinaldo Puchu Piñate Jul 04, 2011
I would say super muscle rather than super exotic since it's front engine rather than the more rare mid engine. Exotic would be saleen S7 or SSC. Still a super car
Shane Carroll Jul 04, 2011
Oh the only way the power's going is up, and those 8.4 liters ain't goin anywhere
Jesus Guerra Jul 04, 2011
It probably won't live up but hopefully I'm wrong. It's is probably going to be controlled and going to have less-power or smaller engine because of emission and all the "green freaks". Hopefully not
Matt Robbins Jul 04, 2011
For now the 2012 ZR1 holds the record at the ring. It wont keep it long though. Just until the new Viper takes it back again. Look at the last Gen Viper's stats and records it set, it's a supercar no doubt about it.
Patrick Schalk Jul 04, 2011
This is a Super Car. I'm tired of this argument. A super car is based on numbers (NOT pricing numbers) and this beast puts down numbers all over the place.
Daniel Fryman Jul 04, 2011
Its a supercar with out the supercar price.
Shane Carroll Jul 04, 2011
I'd say borderline supercar. Its right in the middle of sports car and supercar
Anthony Noon Jul 04, 2011
It's a sports car like the vette. And this car can go around turns! The ACR still holds a record at the "ring"
Rory Scanlan Jul 04, 2011
Yea Riley is right the viper is not a muscle car
Riley McKelvie Jul 04, 2011
Muscle cars were cars that were cheap and available to anyone that. They had big v-8s and were made for the drag strip. The viper isnt a muscle car
Payne Hodges Wilson Jul 04, 2011
I have to go with muscle it's got that classic American straight line race mentality the kind where who ever has the most horse power wins
Santiago Aristizabal Jul 04, 2011
Well technically it is consider to be a muscle car ,seeing that for many races that are muscle car only you cab use the viper
Stephen Ishard Jul 04, 2011
They have slot to live up too
Ryan Chamberlain Jul 04, 2011
question to everyone. viper muscle or exotic?? which one do u think it is
Shane Carroll Jul 04, 2011
Well it'll be safe power-wise, that V10 has so much potential left in it. I was reading somewhere if it was fitted with direct injection power would be in the 700's
Andy Kleschick Jul 04, 2011
It won't off the production line. The new vipers are most likely gonna be forced to have more controlled power, but the same power hopefully.
