"If you think you can get a Viper GTS for the KBB listed value your dreaming. I almost fell out of my chair laughing when they said you can get one for 33k in perfect condition and low miles. 1996-1999 Viper GTS's sell between 36 and 41 thousand depending on how taken car of if is. I looked for my Viper GTS for over a year and watched the prices before I found mine a only 37k with 19k miles. This is a hard to find car which only a thousand are made a year compared to 10's of thousands of other sports cars in this category. By far the Viper GTS in these years are the best looking Vipers ever made. The engine is bullet proof and can take a beating. There isn't another motor in any other car this strong or reliable. The Viper is worth every penny and the closest car this nice and exotic will cost you over 100k."

"I've owned my Blue and White Stripe RT/10 for 8 years, and she is absolutely fantastic. I've put 25000 miles on her, raced her, road trips, everything. Bullet proof, reliable, even under my abusive driving! Gorgeous, still turns heads everytime I drive her!"

"Porches for Breakfast, Ferraris for Lunch"

"I have a 1997 red GTS. I'm glad my wife loves my car because I'd hate to have to choose between them. I put 250,000 miles on a Corvette over 13 years and then picked up the Viper. I've put 49,000 miles on my Viper in 8 years (my daily driver for several years) and it's still a rush every time I fire it up. The deep rumble of the pipes and the way it rocks from side to side as the 500hp engine lopes at 450 rpm, gets amazing attention everywhere I go. If you test drive one, you'll have to have it!!!"

"I own a TNT motorsports Serpent 655 number 11 of 12. The car has 505 hp and 505 ft lb of torque to the rear wheels on the dyno at D.C. Performance. The car is a handfull to drive, no top, no windows, no power steering, just all motor and driveline. It is a drivers car and is not forgiving, you need to pay attention. That being said you can not, for the money, buy a better exotic true american sportscar. Valet...always up front, wherever it's parked... always a crowd! Zero to 100 in 7.5 seconds, low 11s in the quarter and handles like a go kart!! mad fun!"
