Sorry but for 2013 it should have more that 640hp or use something smaller than a huge low revving 8.4L V10 considering other cars make close to the same with much less displacement and even cylinders for that matter.
Sorry but enginerring has come along way to stil be using the "more hp more displacement" theory.. so with that said the motor is far from a enginerring marvel and interior is far from high quality like euro supercar so why pay the 120k? at least with the GT-R u know why your paying 100+k. Its is in fact a enginerring marvel for a car that big to be that fast, handle that well, and make that much power so smooth and put it to the ground at all times..
Just sayin the carrera gt made 627hp in 2005 with only a 5.7L V10 and now 7yrs later it takes the viper 8.4L to make 13 more hp? To me the 100k price tag to a GT-R is justified, viper not so much. yes its fast but really would u expect it to be any slower with a 8.4L V10?
Well it seems thst you are a fan of this car (gtr) I can tell you this, don't beleive all the bullshit you read in the magazines. You also are forgetting about what a lot of these car companys hold true most of the time with these cars, TRADITION. You think that dodge and srt would put anything else in the viper other then a big ass v10??
Do you think if they made a v10 for the vette, and mustang, that it would not piss off a lot of faithful fans? Look at you wonder car you hold so high? gtr. It still has a boosted 6 cyl. Yes a v6 but, a 6.
A lot of the current cars with smaller engines these days that are putting out big numbers are, correct me if I wrong, are all boosted!! Camaro zl1, vette ZR1, new gt 500 mustang.
And did you ever look at what was in that carrera for an engine?? That thing was basically a detuned F1 engine. As where the viper v 10 is still making all that power, going to start kicking everybodys ass again, with a archaic pushrod v10.
I have presonally been working on, driven, raced, and modded, and admired vipers since I had the chance to get behind the wheel of one almost 15 years ago. To me for the money, and the history of this car, it is and it will continue to be a force the be recond with.
