About SRT Viper
Between minivans, hybrids and the intensifying domestication of sports cars, one might suppose the automotive industry has gone soft. Enter the 2014 SRT Viper, the antithesis of well-mannered automobiles. On public roads, the Viper's raucous nature and lack of creature comforts make it one of the least refined supercars on the market, but in a way, that's part of the appeal. The Viper's main attraction is its 640-horsepower naturally aspirated V10, which, combined with wide gear ratios and wind-cheating bodywork, enables a dash to 60 mph in about three seconds and a top speed of 206 mph. Although slightly more livable than previous iterations, the 2014 Viper is not for everyone. That said, the similarly priced Corvette ZR1, Nissan GT-R and Aston Martin Vantage deserve a look.
