@Paul 1996 C1500 pick up with a camper shell.
Paul Lissona Sep 14, 2012
Miguel do you have a Tahoe or Suburban?
Zachary Maurer Sep 13, 2012
@John, as soon as I got this app, when I was 12, :/, the update came out a day later for commenting, but I didn't have a facebook then
Aaron Crisp Sep 13, 2012
Hail the CarBuzz veterans!
Tyler Ray DeFord Sep 12, 2012
The Viper kicks ass. Plain and simple
John Serely Sep 12, 2012
... Comments. After a while I started commenting, though.
John Serely Sep 12, 2012
@jordan yea same here. I got the app right around when it came put. I remember when I got on you could not even comment (wasn't a feature yet). After the update came where you could comment, I never got into cementing, but still read all the ...
Clay Williams Sep 12, 2012
Ive been hear a while just never felt the need to comment.
Zachary Maurer Sep 12, 2012
Idk he kinda came and went, Patrick came into the game a Lill after Andy came in, then I came in a little later, and John Matt And Abraham wernt much behind
Clay Williams Sep 12, 2012
You know who used to comment all the time? Bill Zoo. What ever happened to that guy?
Matt Piccolo Sep 12, 2012
@ John, I don't for some reason my count got reset, idk y?
Jordan Smith Sep 12, 2012
If I started commenting when I first got CarBuzz, I'd have a little more than Patrick. I got this app before Andy Rogers started commenting. That was like 2 and a half years ago I think.
John Serely Sep 12, 2012
Also Miguel, tony and Abraham.
John Serely Sep 12, 2012
@jordan he has over 7,000 comments, so your right. There are a few guys also that have a lot of comments, like Zachary or Matt or some other guys or I guess, me with 3000
Jordan Smith Sep 12, 2012
I think Patrick is now official king of CarBuzz.
Zachary Maurer Sep 12, 2012
Chill out Adam, it's so easy to piss u off
Zachary Maurer Sep 12, 2012
I wasn't arguing with Patrick, Adam the Douche bag
Matt Piccolo Sep 12, 2012
Damn I missed out on a good one!
Jordan Smith Sep 12, 2012
Well I missed out on this argument.
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
If you break everything down individually of course some cars are going to look similar to others. Even though I don't see it, you have to look at the car as a whole.
John Serely Sep 11, 2012
Congrats Patrick!! And your right, Miguel, they are almost always pointless. I read all of them, but seem to miss out on them. I've gotten over a few really stupid ones haha
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
OHhhhhh now I see it. No I don't. Think car does not look like the 599
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
HTF did this copy the 599?
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
But until then Adam....
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
Oh shnapp patrick, you go hardcore on her ;)
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012

Ben Norton Sep 11, 2012
I saw two of these up at mid Ohio race track, they sound freaking amazing. One was the reddish whatever and the other was the silver race one
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
@Patrick Congrats man!
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
I've been enjoying it for awhile now.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
You already missed it tony. I laughed so hard.
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
I told you NP. 0-60 is only a part of it. When your car gets stomped on a track it doesn't matter what your 0-60 is
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
Yeah Aaron, its hilarious to actually predict what happens.
Aaron Crisp Sep 11, 2012
I always read through this threads. And it's always the same people saying the same thing... But it's like I can't not read it you know??
No Pistons Sep 11, 2012
Oh and Matt ive already told you this once before the viper's reliability is actually rated higher then the GTR. You continually show your lack in researching capability
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
I know this off topic but, hot damn the new Cadillac XTS is stunning!
No Pistons Sep 11, 2012
Hey pat didn't we talk earlier about how 0-60 was going to be brought up? Lol because obviously 0-60 is what matters in a race right?
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
I wonder if Matt's dumb phone is charged yet...
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
@ John, ya be on ur game lol
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
@Zach I know. @John even tho they're entertaining, they're pointless 99.99% of the time lol.
David Justice Sep 11, 2012
I agree the GTR/Viper is a good comparison, but not more so than the ZR1/Viper (RWD, price, HP, American). Just surprised that the GTR/Viper comparison is getting this type of attention as opposed to the other.
John Serely Sep 11, 2012
No!! I keep missing these arguments with Patrick and zachaury and Matt and Miguel!!
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
@ Miguel, lol I was joking ya know
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
@Zach calm down tough guy.
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
@miguel, nah dawg u chillax it brah, I'll just go down to mah brothas and sistas on dat eight mile while you mix it up with my homeboi patrick, brah...sorry I had to do that
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
Lol Patrick, way to come in with a bang, but @ Abraham, awwww ya it did
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
I'm just joking. But for real, I think these cars are absolutely comparable.
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
@Patrick Na foo chill.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
Hahahahaha, shit just got real.
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
Dance for me puppets!!!
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
Ahahahahahahahahahaha there's Patrick! How's it going?!?!
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
You dumbasses ALWAYS compare the Vette to the GTR. Why would the Viper be any different? Of course it competes. It's in the same price range and it's a performance car. A better performance car at that.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
I have no idea what this is about so its totally pointless.
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
@Matt Patrick did it because he knew you would react like this. (he has mind control over you)
Matt Piccolo Sep 11, 2012
2% battery here... Patrick brought up the gtr first, I might b back later
Tyson Broadbent Sep 11, 2012
Oh, who would of guessed, another crazy argument on Carbuzz with Connor at the center of it...
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
@ Connor, this is like my first multi comment article in like 2 weeks
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
@Connor FYI I didn't say you did, but I agree with you about the 911Turbo part.
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
But I'll be back guys, I gotta do my math
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
Ahahahah, I told him to get out of his old Mann chair and say somthing
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
@ Miguel, because Matt is like the top commenter here
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
Cause I go to tiger games all the time, and have to go down 8 mile, but I see just as many $100,000 cars and SUVs, and even a few lambos and ferraris, someone by me has a f430
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
@David yup, I don't know why people find it necessary to bring up the GT-R in every Viper and Vette article.
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
@ Matt, it's ok, me and Connor can go at it
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
I didn't say anything about how I know rich people, although I do, I just said that since I live by a wealthy city we are safer than other citys
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
@Matt my point is you're making stereo types about someone you don't know. Which is pretty stupid if ask me.
David Justice Sep 11, 2012
Am I the only one who thinks the more natural competition to the Viper is the ZR1?
Matt Piccolo Sep 11, 2012
Damn, this was actually getting good... But my phone has 3% f**king charge left... :/
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
@ Matt, your not ur
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
Nah it wouldn't, but their are a lot of 1990 mercury sables, but like I said, metro Detroit is a good area, not Detroit though
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
I don't know about you guys but over here in Cali we care about trucks.
Matt Piccolo Sep 11, 2012
@miguel, ur point... And Zachary... Well all those gangsters need something to carry their 1 tonne bag of weed around in! I don't think that'll fit In a sedan :/
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
And don't you all love arguing on 9/11
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
@ Connor, don't worry, I live near the millionaires houses, we're pretty safe by me
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
@miguel, dude totally, right?
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
And metro Detroit is compleatly redneck -__-
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
@Matt you sound so intelligent...
Matt Piccolo Sep 11, 2012
@ zackary, yes I miss Fordfan too lol... He should like make another account or something! But like we ALL know nothing will get solved here so I'm not wasting my time
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
@ Matt, yep I live right by Canada actually, probably a 20 minuet drive from metro Detroit to the bridge or tunnel
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
Awwwww ya, connor the troll in da house!!!!! And I said that Chrysler is on top in the big three, some European cars a miles ahead of the big three
Matt Piccolo Sep 11, 2012
That's good for u, u probably live In a town of red necks who only care about their gay trucks... And probubly spend who knows how much money to keep them goin... Here in canada, I see WAY more accords, camry's etc
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
But this is the entertainment in carbuzz Matt, too bad FORDfan got banned :( we could have had a nice "debate" here
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
Dude all we need is to get Patrick out of his old man chair, and get John in here and we have a party
Matt Piccolo Sep 11, 2012
Settled here if we stop now or go on for 167114799269 comments, we'll all still think the same thing
Matt Piccolo Sep 11, 2012
I really don't care how many of u there are, but I'm not wasting my time... I know ur all going to say "oh he admitted defeat etc etc" and that's awesome... But unlike u guys I'm not f**kin wasting y time here lol we all know nothing will b
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
Ok, but still Chrysler is probably on the top of the big 3 right now, and beside Matt anything American you say has terrible reliability where in truth I see more 1990 Chevy SUVs and old rams than I do 1990 camery and accords
Matt Piccolo Sep 11, 2012
@ Zachary, I never said the gtr was, u said the viper was so I'm asking why u think that... And srt is still a dodge/Chrysler, so it's all included in 1...
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
Hahaha Matt, looks like ur out numbered again, but we can still go at it
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
The GT-R's interior is horrible!
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
@ tony, let's have a rumble, shal we?
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
Ya plus the viper is a NA beast and Nissan can't do crap with a NA and has to use the dick way out and throw turdbos on a pos v6
Matt Piccolo Sep 11, 2012
Vettes interior) u obviously don't know what the term ricer means bec it's totally irrelevant to a stock gtr and why does it matter what the engine size/ aspiration is if it beats almost any supercar on sale today?
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
I think it's stupid how you guys argue over opinions.
Tim Preisinger Sep 11, 2012
Matt, of COURSE you like the GT-R more... The Viper is American!
Matt Piccolo Sep 11, 2012
@ Zachary, actually u don't need to drive a car to say those "specific" things about a car but none of them are true, bec the gtr sounds amazing (I've seen/heard a few) ugh, the gtr's interior is really nice, (if u call it bad though, whats the
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
Idk Matt, how is the gtr meaner and how do u get more out of it, and srt is Chryslers proformance devision, and the get better stuff than the pos dodges
Matt Piccolo Sep 11, 2012
Ok they deleted my comment I posted before that one... How is it meaner, how do u get more out of it and with dodges 4th worst reliability ranking out of oh let's see I think it's 36 automakers I'm not sure how long I'd trust that traction control ;)
Matt Piccolo Sep 11, 2012
But whatever... I'm not going to get into a huge argument over this so yea...
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
But I've never driven one so I can't say that those are true
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
Ya Matt, no one but motor trend has even driven one in public, so you can't draw conclusions yet either, I could say that the gtr sounds like crap, has a piss poor interior and is the ultimate ricer machine and only duche bags put tt6s in a supercar.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
Well first of all Matt, the Viper is more mean, more manly, you get more out of it, and guess what, TRACTION CONTROL. So you won't die in the rail.
Matt Piccolo Sep 11, 2012
And just cuz I know it'll happen... U don't all have to go (patrick) and list reasons y u think I'm wrong lol!
Matt Piccolo Sep 11, 2012
I'd take a gtr... Just as quick, looks better (IMO) 4 seats, more truck space, 0-60 IN 2.8 SECONDS! and if u get caught in the rain u won't get killed
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
I don't know what the GTR sounds like.
Jordan Smith Sep 11, 2012
Unless your friends are 2 years old, it doesn't make a difference at all.
Henz Herrero Sep 11, 2012
I wouldnt say this is a better bang for buck than gt-r.. U can bring your friends in the nissan, this is kinda striclty a weekend car.. Not hating just saying..
Zaire Wilkins Sep 11, 2012
there is always that one person
Stephen Cobbs Sep 11, 2012
Morris is on drugs
Mario Callirgos Sep 11, 2012
Morris!!!! Thats funny man. You are joking right.
John Serely Sep 11, 2012
That is a great car. The viper blows the GTR out of the water IMO. And I've read 3 reviews on the viper, and all of them said while it is still a hardcore, raw car, it isn't AS raw as the prev gen.
Kie Morris Sep 11, 2012
I would scrap the Viper and the GT-R and invest in an Audi RS4 where it doesn't demand respect from the driver but commands it from everyone els on the road ;)
Josh Negron Sep 11, 2012
I love Vipers too... But just remember, the new one has electronic "nannies" and controls just like every other car now...
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
No you should compare it to another naturally aspera...oh wait, there are none left!
Zaire Wilkins Sep 11, 2012
this shouldnt compare to GT-R at all but the ZR1
Zaire Wilkins Sep 11, 2012
the GT-R and this are almost the same price
Lou Guerrero Sep 11, 2012
That's why I'm Viper man. I love driving and respect skill.
Dillon Dixon Sep 11, 2012
That's the whole point of the viper, Lou. The viper has been a man's car. It takes a lot of skill to drive it successfully.
Lou Guerrero Sep 11, 2012
On paper but I'm sure the GTR is MUCH easier to be fast in. I love the Viper but it commands ability and respect from the driver. I guess it doesn't matter on a straight tho.
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
Suck it GTR. New bang for the buck car right here.
Jacob Burford Nov 24, 2012
This>GTR>Corvette
William Downs Sep 14, 2012
@ clay, only place there is fiberglass on the zr1 is the rear bumper and the hood, the rest of the car is carbon fiber and aluminum
Jordan Smith Sep 13, 2012
Both the Viper and the ZR1 use carbon fiber and aluminum for around the same prices.
Clay Williams Sep 13, 2012
The viper uses both of those and is cheaper than the ZR1
Clay Williams Sep 12, 2012
So is carbon fiber and aluminum isn't to heavy either.
Wyatt Gordon Sep 12, 2012
better looking than the ZR1, and it's not plastic!
Larry Martino Sep 12, 2012
They were also called ricers because they were significantly slower and very underpowered compared to the cars back then. But today, many cars from Japan can compete and even beat many US cars
Ken Kirtland Sep 12, 2012
i would buy a viper over the corvette anyways. even though car enthusiest know when a ZR1 is coming by, others just think, oh a corvette. this car is unmistakable and demands the attention of witnesses.
Sam Harris Sep 12, 2012
Never really liked any of the vipers. But this one I might get used to.
Ty Piper Sep 12, 2012

John Serely Sep 11, 2012
@pablo I guess, but both are very good
Pablo Herasme Sep 11, 2012
@John you must be one hell of a Porsche fan, to have a tough choice over a freakin Viper
John Serely Sep 11, 2012
This looks great. If takeit over a GTR or zr1 easily. It would be a very tough choice between this and a GT3 for me
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
Snakeskin green!!!!!
Jayme Gorham Sep 11, 2012
I really don't like many American cars, but I freakin' love this viper.
Dillon Dixon Sep 11, 2012
I would love a GTS with either Red w/white, white w/blue, or Yellow w/black.
Jeff Link Sep 11, 2012
This is nice, I like the red better.
Paul Dickey Sep 11, 2012
Can't wait to see these driving around.
Chris Clark Sep 11, 2012

Conner has some dumbass ideas. Luckily, the internet is boundless, and even more so, I'm guessing the vast majority of readers are in the US, so ... Free Speech. Get over it, or move somewhere that censorship is the norm. Otherwise GTFO his nuts.
Lou Guerrero Sep 12, 2012
Not only do I not think this looks anything like a 599. I believe there are only so many ways to do classic sporting lines without looking too radical for our present tastes. This car screams OG GTS and nothing else frankly.
Tyler Michaelson Sep 12, 2012
I'd take this over a GTR and especially over a ZR1 but I'd still take a 911 over this, I know I know it's slower ect... but I just like the 911 best of all cars in this price range.
Daniel Eads Sep 12, 2012
Connor, you comment like you have no concept of manners or social skills. this app is for thoughts on cars ONLY so you can zip it about anything else. If you want to talk about religion on the internet, go to YouTube.
Thomas Mackey Sep 12, 2012
I think Conner wins the dumber than a bag of hammers award. This kid doesn't know a civic from a Bentley.
Tom Lopez Sep 12, 2012
deff not a copy of the 599 but it does look alot like the tvr sagaris. google it
Dillon Dixon Sep 11, 2012
I don't believe you "win" Connor. For one, you seemed to have ignored my comment. If no one bothered with Miguel's comment, then why did you post one that did bother everyone? It was obviously unnecessary.
No Pistons Sep 11, 2012
"smarter then you"? I'm sorry but you haven't provided ANYTHING factual. You just get people aggravated, they make a weak point and you follow up with an empty one.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
Thank you clay, that is some real words of wisdom.
Clay Williams Sep 11, 2012
My point is not all your thoughts need to be shared with the world.
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
@Connor shit like that is offensive and ignorant, but I guess it's easy to say over the Internet huh?
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
Damn Connor, that was a really really....damn...
Clay Williams Sep 11, 2012
It's more of a matter of staying on topic not intelligence. Everyone ponders life's mystery, we just don't want to hear you opinion of them on an app about cars.
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
@Connor I would love to have a debate with you face to face, I bet half the crap you say wouldn't be said.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
Then why are you here, I mean it seems like all you do here is argue with people. I don't even think you enjoy cars.
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
@Connor I take that you don't have many friends huh? With attitude how do you get by in life?
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
you sound like an ignorant little kid. You just argue for the sake of arguing don't you? If you need attention find yourself a girl friend or boy friend whatever you desire.
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
I was speaking metaphorically you dumbass! Telling yourself you won makes you feel better about yourself huh? Well in the real world you wouldn't the guts to talk the way you do on here. Connor I tried to like you but the more you comment the more
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
I'm not telling you you aren't going anywhere Connor. I'm saying keep using that condescending attitude towards people and see where it gets you. How old are you Connor? 17? 18?
Clay Williams Sep 11, 2012
There is no winning, only Internet.
Donte Perino Sep 11, 2012
Stop fighting and enjoy the article.
John Serely Sep 11, 2012
@connor If I were you, I'd stop now while your not considered a complete dumbass. I'm siding with Miguel on this one.
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
Haha see where than condescending attitude gets you in life Connor. I hope you're not really like that to peoples face because you'd get put in your place pretty quickly.
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
Connor I just wanna punch you right in your suck hole.
Clay Williams Sep 11, 2012
That's why trolls like Connor exist, for the attention.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
Damn, that is true.
Dillon Dixon Sep 11, 2012
And that's toward Conner. Not Miguel.
Dillon Dixon Sep 11, 2012
So he said heaven. But you seriously didn't think someone would say something about your comment when you posted it? Really, you know what you were getting into the moment you pressed post.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
But you're critical and literal. You can't take a joke, let alone see one. I mean if I said I'd sell my wife before my car, you'd take it literally even though its a joke.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
My point is that he said a joke, you started a argument that cannot be solved. Duh.
Clay Williams Sep 11, 2012
Look at the philosophy on this guy. I like cars not because I think there going to heaven with me just because I like them. Everything doesn't need a deeper meaning.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
He brought it up, but you questioned it. He said to trade a place of peace for a nice car, meaning the car is that good. You said its weird to do that, especially if that place of peace may not exist.
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
@Connor it seems like you spend to much time in doucheology if you try to be little people through an app, people's religious beliefs is personal/none of your business. Do us all a favor and keep that out of this app and stay on subject.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
So you get a kick watching people react to your comments?
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
this tho, cars and religion should be separate.
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
@Connor it was a joke, wasn't any of you business, and it was still car related so I don't see what you're babbling about? I like you don't know if there's a heaven or hell but I have faith that god will take care of us after death. Let's no get into
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
Twas a joke damn man
Pablo Herasme Sep 11, 2012
Oh no! The C63 extremist are attacking before they attack Bmw HQ lol.
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
@Connor this a car app take your religious beliefs some where else. @Tony I was being sarcastic, but on Car people are awesome you swear as if the C63 AMG is the god of cars lol!
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
Why Connor, why say that?
No Pistons Sep 11, 2012
@pablo I wish! I would be the happiest man alive
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
@Tony you'd take the C63 AMG coupe over going to heaven...
Pablo Herasme Sep 11, 2012
No Pistons sound like you live in a racetrack
No Pistons Sep 11, 2012
I will admit I'm biased though, I don't think in terms of DD I think in terms purely racing, I don't care about creature comforts, or comfort for that matter haha
No Pistons Sep 11, 2012
Have fun looking nice (which is subjective btw) losing to the viper (which is actually factually because we have evidence of it)

When you have the money for any of these cars I'm sure money isn't a factor but if someone is in the market to buy a Viper or Vette they wouldn't be looking at GT-R and vise versa.
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
@Connor The GT-R is in a whole different class of the Viper and ZR1. The only thing that is comparable is the price but as far as that there's nothing else you can compare.
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
@Connor looks are subjective so there's no argument there.
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
A few seconds? try around 10 seconds buddy, believe it or not even a few seconds is a lot on a track. Connor have raced on a track or even been to one?
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
Connor go check the Viper's Nurburgring lap time before make yourself look like an ass.
Daniel Eads Sep 11, 2012
Not quite sure how the $100,000 viper compares to the gtr but the ACR and the zr1 you really can't compare to the gtr because of the price difference.
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
@Tony something like that. @Connor as far as performance the GT-R doesn't hold a candle to The Viper or ZR...
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
Even tho I'm a big Chevy Guy, Viper > ZR1
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
As much as I hate to admit, the Viper Wins against all. I mean, its just better.
Colby Church Sep 11, 2012
ZR1>Viper. Wait until the videos start to come out and see.
John Serely Sep 11, 2012
@miguel I think it was the company that makes ferrari's interiors or supplies their leather or something along those lines
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
@No Pistons, I think it was Ferrari who helped design the interior.
Pablo Herasme Sep 11, 2012
@Josh agreed Anyone has to live with a GTR to know it
John Serely Sep 11, 2012
But, for me, it would be a tough choice between this and a 997GT3. The GT3 certainly competes with the viper because it is also a RWD, NA, manual tranny track-oriented car for around the same price. I'll have to wait and see about the 991GT3 I guess
John Serely Sep 11, 2012
Well, I agree with you Patrick. Viper>GT-R. It (IMO) looks better, is NA, probably sounds better, far better interior, probably more fun to drive and might be faster around the track...
Josh Negron Sep 11, 2012
Carlos and Jonny from Motortrend have both said this year that criticizing the GT-R about its "lack of skill required to drive" crap is completely ignorant. Since they have infinitely more wheel time than any of you--I agree with them.
Pablo Herasme Sep 11, 2012
I'll take both the GTR and Viper
Clay Williams Sep 11, 2012
The viper and GTR aren't really comparable. The GTR as a perdition machine made for people who take themselves to seriously, while the viper is ridiculous beast for looneys.viper > GTR
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
@matt I love how u reply to piss him off -__-
Mario Callirgos Sep 11, 2012
They GTR competes with the viper in the same way the lions compete with the patriots.
No Pistons Sep 11, 2012
There is nothing to argue, the viper is faster(RWD and NA might I add), more powerful, only a few thousand more, has an interior from the same people that do Mas and lambo (correct me if I'm wrong) there is nothing to argue ;)
Matt Piccolo Sep 11, 2012
@ Patrick, I totally agree its in the same price range and they're competing, but don't deny u know u saying that will begin a huge argument lol... I was just sayin
No Pistons Sep 11, 2012
Agreed with pat, GTR can go run and hide in corner, a real car has just emerged and obviously has way more bang for your buck.
Zachary Crowley Sep 11, 2012
If you dont have the skill to handle a sports car, GTR is for you. If you want to take the bull by its horns and you have the skill to drive a car, Viper, Vette is for you. Simple as that. Both are fun, just matters how you want to drive
Corey Alan Kelley Sep 11, 2012
And yea a gt500 is out of this category It's not even in the same class as a z06 I think
David Justice Sep 11, 2012
Can't wait to see this and the ZR1 battle. Ford should consider a supercar too (new GT?) so all three American automakers can go head-to-head. And no the GT500 is not in this category.
Corey Alan Kelley Sep 11, 2012
No but seriously I saw a yellow zr1 yesterday.. And it actually left a lot to be desired See one corvette you've seen them all I guess
Daniel Eads Sep 11, 2012
@Tommy, they are way too Heavy to compete. Plus they don't have the best suspension. They could match them in a straight line only.
Aaron Crisp Sep 11, 2012
Viper>Anything in and under it's price range.
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
It's relevant though. They are in the same price range.
Tommy Plunkert Sep 11, 2012
You gotta take into account the new ZL1 and GT500 too, both come in around $60,000 and would give the ZR1 a serious run for its money...
Matt Piccolo Sep 11, 2012
Gtr>viper vette, I love how Patrick does that just to start an argument lol
Dillon Dixon Sep 11, 2012
I still would take the ZR1. Seriously though, this viper is going to be a beast!
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
Viper Vette > GTR
Description: The 2013 SRT Viper will be produced at Chrysler's Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit starting this coming November. The plant has served as the home of the Viper since the first model's...

Not nice Adam!!! I agree
Clay Williams Sep 12, 2012
That's what I thought but wasn't sure.
Kevin Haeberle Sep 12, 2012
Sorry Carbuzz... The viper came out in 1992.
Jacob Burford Nov 24, 2012
If I could have any American car, this would definitely be it!
William Downs Sep 14, 2012
No this was all srt, but I wouldn't be surprised if someone from Ferrari had something to do with the body design cause it does share a close resemblance to the berlinetta
Clay Williams Sep 13, 2012
It's in know way based on anything fiat except for the leather interior.
Mike Ralsh Sep 13, 2012
Could this be an affordable Ferrari since Fiat partnered up?
Clay Williams Sep 12, 2012
That's true fiat did heal a lot of wounds left by Daimler, I thought you were saying fiat designed the viper when it was all Chrysler.
William Downs Sep 12, 2012
We probally wouldn't have this car or have a Chrysler anymore
William Downs Sep 12, 2012
Yea they had the idea, then it wasn't financially possible for the companyat the time so they closed the program and didn't restart it till after. Fiat took over, not trying to take away from the viper just saying if not for fiat
Clay Williams Sep 12, 2012
The the new viper took longer than two years to develop. The prototype was built a year after fiat moved in.
William Downs Sep 12, 2012
@clay... No Chrysler killed off the viper, they only brought it back after fiat purchased them, cause then they had the money, viper would be dead along with Chrysler if not for Italian company fiat
Clay Williams Sep 12, 2012
Chrysler never really stopped. They were Planning the 2013 before prediction stopped.
Larry Martino Sep 12, 2012
Such a nice car I was sad when Chrysler decided to stop viper production. The wheels look like last gens and the paint is the classic GTS color
Ben August Sep 12, 2012
@ryan: ya, too bad the wheels can't be changed out. Such a shame. Guess those permanent wheels are the only thing standing between you and the Viper. Wait a minute.....
Michael Davidson Sep 12, 2012
I think it should be lowered about an inch or two.
Darren Nardo Sep 11, 2012
Every new model year these cars get better looking!
Jackson Michael Sep 11, 2012
I just realized that the side of the car looks a lot like the charger. Is that gonna be a new dodge/SRT cue?
Derek Hedtke Sep 11, 2012
mother of god, this looks fantastic
Ryan Haverty Sep 11, 2012
I am a Huge Viper fan, but I wouldn't choose this wheel option for my Viper! There is something about the design that doesn't do it for me. I feel that it takes away from the overall look of the car.
Isaac Rezkalla Sep 11, 2012
Perfect color match
Lou Guerrero Sep 11, 2012
First thing I noticed were the rears lol
Boyd Boudreaux Sep 11, 2012
Can you say big meat I mean tires!
Alex O'Brian Sep 12, 2012
It will turn heads
Lou Guerrero Sep 11, 2012
Looks like some WOT squat going on here.
Larry Martino Sep 12, 2012
You know your car is beautiful when the head of fiat says so
Alex O'Brian Sep 12, 2012
Corvette days are numbered >:)
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
I love this pic, dat ass.
Kris C. Lopez Sep 11, 2012
This new generation of Viper is just beautiful. Eat your heart out Vettes
Alex O'Brian Sep 12, 2012
White & blue is a Perfect combo. Love it
John Serely Sep 12, 2012
I think this is one of the few cars, of at least the prev gen, that looks great (maybe better than stock) with a huge wing
John Serely Sep 12, 2012
I saw a pic online of a viper (2013) running around with a blue color. I think it was the same as the launch edition, but with no stripes. It looked great. I really want to see a ACR version soon.
Michael Mitnik Sep 12, 2012
While I really like the nostalgic look of the blue and white stripes of the GTS. I have to say that this "stock" viper, if it truly is the stock version looks amazing. I think if I had the cash I might go with stock srt viper instead of the GTS
Zachary Maurer Sep 12, 2012
@ Larry, ya ik I want snakeskin green and the darker green back too, I think anaconda green is the darker one, but I loved snakeskin green
Clay Williams Sep 12, 2012
Copperhead was a burnt orange color. Snake skin was the Green.
Larry Martino Sep 12, 2012
Idk about the yellow i hope they bring back the green. Copperhead i think it was called, right?
William Downs Sep 12, 2012
I'm slowly starting to like this car, but damn that grill just ruins that front end for me
Clay Williams Sep 12, 2012
Patrick- I love the magnum it's by far the best station wagon ever Made. I also love the G8 it's under appreciated in my opinion.
Aaron Sparks Sep 12, 2012
This. Is. BEAUTIFUL.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 12, 2012
I'd love to have a new Chevy SS, 63 Corvette, a Silverado, and....a SLS AMG. That's part of my dream garage.
Patrick Schalk Sep 12, 2012
I'll eventually have a G8 GT or SRT8 Magnum as a DD. I love Mopar stuff as well but I can't get away from those LS engines. Eventually I'd like to get an 03-06 Viper though.
Aaron Crisp Sep 12, 2012
And awesome choices Clay! Mopar or no car huh buddy!
Aaron Crisp Sep 12, 2012
G8 is an interesting choice Patrick, wish Pontiac wasn't shut down. Really started liking the Aussie captive imports they were bringing in.
Clay Williams Sep 11, 2012
I've always wanted a 72' cuda' or an old AMC javelin. After the classics I would then buy something practical like a Jeep grand Charokee SRT-8 and finish it of with a Challenger SRT-10. it would be mopar heaven.
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
Haha I'd buy about 4 cars and dump a crap load of money into each. C5 Z06, 1965 Lincoln Continental, Pontiac G8 GT, and a nice Laramie Longhorn Ram 2500 to tow everything with.
Clay Williams Sep 11, 2012
I agree, if I were handed $200,000 I would seriously consider buying two vipers.
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
I agree with you Clay in terms of design, tech, materials, etc. They definitely are. But that's what I love about the Viper, Vette, GTR, etc. Great bang for the buck.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
Well they're supposed to perform in different worlds. The Viper in a Nurburgring world and the Ferrari in a sort of Italian country side roads.
Clay Williams Sep 11, 2012
I know when to admit defeat, your right I looked at the numbers and the viper is better in almost every performance aspect, but the statement still stands, the viper and 458 are worlds apart.
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
And I agree with you on the badassery of the Viper. I was just saying performance wise they are closer than everyone thinks despite price, materials, technology, design, etc.
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
Haha when it come to performance cars I would say that speed is pretty important. More so than the others. While I agree that a 458 did have nicer materials than the ACR and more "exotic" styling, that doesn't really reflect performance.
Clay Williams Sep 11, 2012
Not everything is about speed! I'm just saying the viper and 458 are worlds apart, and by the I actually prefer the viper mostly for is simplistic bad-assness
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
Clay the last ACRs are faster around tracks than the 458. Technology is nice but it's not always the end all be all contributor to speed.
Clay Williams Sep 11, 2012
In a straight line they may be very similar but the 458 have a lot more technology. Like most Ferraris it is made to be a technical machine of precise engineering. While the viper is just made to "go like stink"
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
I'm talking to Clay.
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
I'm talking about you saying the Vipers performance is nowhere near the 458s. That's crazy talk.
Clay Williams Sep 11, 2012
I'm not bashing the Bugatti, it's a technical feat and an incredible super car I'm just you can't argue looks.
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
Clay, you have a lot to learn dude.
Genci Sallabanda Sep 11, 2012
The best american sports car!
Clay Williams Sep 11, 2012
It's true the vipers performance numbers are no where near the 458 but if some one thinks the viper is better looking you really can't argue. For instance I think the viper is better looking than a Bugatti despite being on two very different levels.
Jackson Michael Sep 11, 2012
YES! Perfect viper right there
Nick Smith Sep 11, 2012
Slap some black stripes on there and we're in business.
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
I don't think Connor understands what subjective means.
Ben Norton Sep 11, 2012
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I honestly prefer this to any ferrari or Lamborghini other than the F40
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
@ Connor, no, I could hold a very dim 18th century candle
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
Subjective, you can't change that so why debate over it.
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
Looks are subjective, but performance however...
Zachary Maurer Sep 11, 2012
@ John, ya ik, it looks like Kahn designed the hood :/
Thomas Mackey Sep 11, 2012
Your right...the viper looks better. USA! USA! USA! lol
Matt Piccolo Sep 11, 2012
Lol I know looks are all opinion but this looks no where close to as good as a 458
Thibault Leroy Sep 11, 2012
The yellow ruins it
Clay Williams Sep 11, 2012
Yes the base has the hood from the last gen viper while the GTS has the new carbon fiber hood.
Pablo Herasme Sep 11, 2012
For the money THIS is officially Explosion for the buck
John Serely Sep 11, 2012
I don't know about the base car's hood. The base car (shown here) has a lot of vents on it, while the GTS's hood (pictured in blue) looks a lot cleaner IMO
Adam Wieland Sep 11, 2012
Damn that looks sexy in yellow
Michael Page Sep 11, 2012
IMO this is the best looking American car currently being made. It rivals the 458's sexiness with good ol' studliness!
Lou Guerrero Sep 11, 2012
As I looked at the blue car I was wondering how a yellow would look. It looks great!
Tim Preisinger Sep 11, 2012
The hood is the only thing I'm not wild about on this car
Clay Williams Sep 11, 2012
I actually think I like it better with last gens hood. But the new hood is still very very sexy.
Lou Guerrero Sep 12, 2012
Yeah that's a base/GTS difference.
Jordan Smith Sep 11, 2012
I think it only comes on the GTS model.
Matt Piccolo Sep 11, 2012
@ John, yes I know, ur point lol
John Serely Sep 11, 2012
I think it is an option, matt
Matt Piccolo Sep 11, 2012
I like that the black that was accross the back ( I think it was carbon fiber ) is gone!
Alex O'Brian Sep 12, 2012
I like The painted decklid at the rear
Aaron Crisp Sep 12, 2012
Hi CarBuzz please delete this comment too, thank you.
Alex O'Brian Sep 12, 2012
Need black stripes asap
Ben August Sep 12, 2012
Digging the double-bubble, and the black and yellow really contrast well.
Jon Ashley Sep 11, 2012
Alright, the base model is the way to go. This looks sweet, and I can do without some of the GTS features. I mean cmon, its a viper!!
Matt Piccolo Sep 11, 2012
Agreed, I'm really liking this without that strip of black
Taylor Garry Sep 11, 2012
I'll take mine in this color please
Jason Bartlett Sep 11, 2012
I liked seeing the headers and aluminum valve covers on the last gen vipers.
Matthew Crighton Sep 11, 2012
If I ever get one of these, I'm putting a sticker on the crossbrace reading "warning, do not release the beast"
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
The Heart of the Snake!
Dale Schroeder Sep 11, 2012
I love that crossbrace. It looks like it's there to keep that monster of an engine from escaping.
William Downs Sep 14, 2012
But now the viper has a beautiful interior looks just as crazy as even and is still a beast, I just hope gm doesn't drop the ball with the next corvettes interior, now ford just needs to build a car to compete with the viper and vette
William Downs Sep 14, 2012
I dot see why we're fighting, all 3 of te American auto company's have money again to put into there cars, notice how every one is making really nice interiors now, even gm and that was never something they were good at
John Serely Sep 13, 2012
That's true Ben, but a lot of other things went on and went into saving Italy besides Chrysler. While they helped, it wasn't near 100% them
Aaron Crisp Sep 13, 2012
I like Ben's way of thinking. We also saved Japan from war on their homeland... Did we save the Jap automakers?? And the Brits?? And all Germans??
Ben August Sep 12, 2012
Leap? It's a fact. Chrysler held the contract; the US saved Italy, by default, Chrysler saved Italy. This prick here is talking about how "Italy made the viper" if that's true, Chrysler saved Italy. Fact.
John Serely Sep 12, 2012
@ben lol that's quite a leap/assumption/generalization!
Ben August Sep 12, 2012
One other minor point: Germany invaded Italy in WWII. Since the USA saved Italy's ass, and since it was Chrysler's line that built Sherman tanks, it really means there's no Italy without Chrysler. So ya, Chrysler saved all of Italy, including Fiat.
Kevin Blockley Sep 12, 2012
So What if fiat funded the Viper it's engineered & Made in Detroit. Oooh Fiat owns Chrysler,so it makes it less American? Big Deal . GM owns Opel &Holden , so I guess their less German and Australian? Rather say you don't like the car & shutup
Jordan Smith Sep 12, 2012
Hells yeah! Go amoeba!
Ben August Sep 12, 2012
Also, using your "hierarchy logic" it means Italians are not Italians, but Amoeba's. So again, using your logic, "go Amoeba's!!"
Ben August Sep 12, 2012
Point being: all life originated from a single cell, so using your logic...."go single cell! You make great cars woohoo"
Ben August Sep 12, 2012
@Connor: what's your lineage?
uptown Sep 12, 2012
Connor you're a dipshit. It's more like go Sergio Marchionne and American engineering.
Aaron Crisp Sep 12, 2012
And there goes Abraham's comment. CarBuzz deletes the wrong comments.. You think they'd go after ignorant/religious ones... Nope.
Ty Piper Sep 12, 2012
god I hate everything you say Connor.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
Because it Chrysler engineered it. It's like this, the Chef is always praised even though he/she didn't grow and raise the food used in th dish. The farmer did that.
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
Connor are you serious? Didn't Ferrari use GMs suspension for the 458?
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
Hmm, no I don't think that's how it works.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
No because SRT engineered this machine not FIAT.
Aaron Crisp Sep 11, 2012
Viper always has and always will be bad ass.
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
Connor do you know how many Italian companies are owned by the Germans?
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
Well if FIAT didn't buy them out, Chrysler wouldn't exist. Because Chrysler killed the last gen Viper because of budget issues.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
Like I said, they got the materials, and strengthened an already great design. FIAT didn't design and engineer the car, they just gave them the materials and money.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
That's how the car got 'Ferrari interior". Damn, you're lucky you disarmed that mine you stepped on.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
Yep...as Italian as they get...
Patrick Schalk Sep 11, 2012
Connor of course the 08s are turds. That's pre Fiat. Guess you haven't been in a brand new 300C.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
Actually it does. If components that don't fail on one car are put on another they automaticlly do just because its.. well a Viper? Now that makes total sense Conner you genius!!
Ben Norton Sep 11, 2012
It has just the right number of pedals!
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
Yes, the seats aren't the only thing leather, and seats so hold and cradle the driver, which I important.
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
Same leather, same quality, same distributor, different look, different car. If you think the leather would fall apart here than in a Ferrari, I can't help you.
Miguel Jimenez Sep 11, 2012
@Connor You do know that Fiat recently bought Chrysler right?
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
Ferrari Leather does not fall apart dude. I mean 458 interiors are pretty heat resistant aren't they?
Abraham Mendoza Sep 11, 2012
I could sit there all day...
John Serely Sep 11, 2012
The interior and looks are thesis reason I would take this over a ZR1
Matt Piccolo Sep 11, 2012
I'm liking this, interior quality is competing with the Porsches, gtr, Audi r8 etc in this price range instead of the vette lol
Lou Guerrero Sep 11, 2012
Hopefully this interior quality will trickle down to the challenger or successive pony car.
Jeff Link Sep 11, 2012
Vastly improved. Perhaps GM needs to take notes on what they should be doing in the vette and Camaro. Both interiors are so cheap. You pay 100k for a Vette and it still looks like a 20k car inside.
Erik Rudolph Sep 11, 2012
The interior has vastly improved
