Overall Fun As A Car But High On Gas. — Love the noise and the response the car gives and it gets tons of attention. You can't really hide anywhere in this car. Great show car also and can be a good weekend getaway car. Tons of power available even when stock.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Love This Car — There is nothing to dislike about this car. The blue with white stripes on this car set it from the rest of the vipers on the road. Every time I take it for a spin I see people taking pictures with their cell phones.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

97 Viper Gts — my '97 viper gts is quite amazing, i bought it for 12,500$ and it had been in a front end collision with a parked semi trailer, right now im almost finished with it it has a paxton supercharger on it with a carbon fiber hood and no front end lol...it gets pretty good gas mileage considering its a v-10...14 city 23 hwy... i had also modified theroof so its removable so it has the rt/10's convertible feel with the the gts's extra 50hp.

Pros

Nearly untouchable performance. Uses lots of fuel.

Cons

Attracts all kinds of attention, good and bad alike.

Performance Personified. — Back to basics supercar. Understressed obscenely oversized motor, bullet proof drivetrain and timeless good looks keeps you satisfied. Superb handling, great braking and right-level comforts make for a classic in it's own time.
