i live in minneaplis and i saw two vipers driving together today. that's about the best i see very often, except quite a bit of new corvettes and also nice suvs (range rover's, denali's, escalade's, hummer's, etc) that cost nearly as much as a viper.

funny thing is, the road i saw the vipers on today, i saw one wrecked this summer. looked like he took it right into the median divider (metal fence type) the car was pretty messed up. i guess he just went out and bought another :)

U can have all the performace power u want in a lambo, but its not the same as the way u look in a beautiful classic car.

to each his own

I think classic cars look better than the exotics


performance wise...a muscle car can surpass exotics with few mods

10-14-2006, 07:35 PM
That's a hard choice........but i would prolly take the lambo.

How about a little bit of both......

The 1971-1974 detomaso pantera, where muscle cars and italian built sports monsters collide:

Powered by a ford 351 cleveland. You can swap the entire motor/tranny out for pocket change, and look good doing it :)

give me an Ariel Atom over any of these cars anyday, far less than half the cost and performance on par with the Ferrari Enzo

look them up online.......they're like $40,000 for the top model, one seater, open cockpit, honda turbo powered........better handling than most exotics.....if you have high-speed.....go to their site and watch the vids.....amazing car

you gotta wait in line to get one, tho

there's a waiting list a mile and a half long to get one, and previous owners get 1st dibs.

You might get lucky and find a used one, but i doubt it

watch the video on the press page from the BBC.......you don't have to wear a helmet it's just recommended.....i would have a custom wind screen made for mine if i ever could afford one.....make it into something closer to a regular convertable

true......if anybody wants one sign up now......they're handmade so it takes a while to get it.......and if you want to pay for it they'll do almost any kind of modifications you want them to.....i believe
