Lamborghini transformed into expensive lawnmower

They must be accustomed to wet roads up in Surrey, British Colombia. Even if they aren't experts in the rain at a minimum they're Canadian, so you'd expect local drivers to be courteous and friendly and generally very likable, even the Lamborghini-driving ones. All my expectations for our northern friends are blown… » 12/22/14 2:26pm 12/22/14 2:26pm

You Can Buy An Awesome Dodge Viper GTS For The Price Of A Honda Accord

Prestige and exclusivity don't always need to be imported. Case in point: this brutish, home-grown 10-cylinder slice of 'merican pie known as the Dodge Viper GTS. Not only has this amazing car aged remarkably well, but it's depreciated to the point that it's cheaper than a modestly-optioned Honda Accord EX-L. » 12/07/14 2:32pm 12/07/14 2:32pm

VIdeo: The Dodge Viper T/A is Analog Speed, Perfected.

The Dodge Viper T/A is an absolute animal: 640 HP, 600 lb/ft, 3,300 lbs, and 355-section rear tires with an old-fashioned 6-speed manual gearbox. And now that it has a new, lower base price, it's analog speed worth revisiting. Let's do a quick first-light Snake Run to find out. » 11/25/14 12:12pm 11/25/14 12:12pm

Your Ridiculously Awesome Dodge Viper Wallpaper Is Here

Jalopnik Reader Ron Schendorf has provided this weekend's Weekend Wallpaper. It's an amazing photo of Kuno Wittmer's #93 Dodge Viper GTS-R. I asked Robert to give us the low down. » 10/25/14 5:00pm 10/25/14 5:00pm

The Dodge Viper ACR Returns To Strike Fear At Your Next Track Day

For a good 10 years, the Dodge Viper ACR was the hardest, nastiest, trackiest Viper you could track. Lighter, stiffer, and more stripped out than a normal Viper, it was a true beast. But the current-gen Viper has yet to get an American Club Racing variant — until now. » 10/24/14 11:51am 10/24/14 11:51am

Battle of the Misfits: The Camaro Z/28 versus the world

In his postmodern novel The French Lieutenant's Woman, John Fowles tells us that the heroine, Sarah Woodruff, was "the perfect victim of a caste society. Her father had forced her out of her own class but could not raise her to the next. To the men of the one she had left, she had become too select to marry; to those… » 10/23/14 4:07pm 10/23/14 4:07pm

Dodge Viper - More charm needed for this snake?

The Dodge Viper returned to the world in 2013 and everyone... kind of went, huh. That's a bit of a surprise considering the styling is excellent, the V10 makes amazing noise, and the performance capability of the car is higher than that of most drivers that will climb behind the wheel. » 10/21/14 2:15pm 10/21/14 2:15pm

Ask Dominik Farnbacher and Marc Goossens From SRT Anything You Want

It's one of the best looking cars at the Lone Star Le Mans weekend. It's one of the best sounding cars here, too. Oh, and there's two of them. » 9/19/14 12:07pm 9/19/14 12:07pm

Forget The VTEC, You Want Viper Power In Your S2000

The great Carroll Shelby used a very simple formula to make the Cobra one of the fastest roadsters of its day...take a big engine, cram it into a small car. The Honda S2000 is one of the best handling cars to come from Japan, so I'm not sure how a Viper V10 improves the balance, but I like it. » 9/18/14 2:32pm 9/18/14 2:32pm

Here's why the SRT Hellcat V-8 isn't going into the Viper

It won't fit. No, seriously, that's the reason. We talked with SRT powertrain director Chris Cowland this past week at length about the topic and it's simply not going to happen. You can read about the several critical reasons why over on Motor Authority at the link below. » 7/25/14 2:55pm 7/25/14 2:55pm

Porsche vs Viper GT3 World Challenge Battle On The Streets Of Toronto

Porsche factory driver Nick Tandy drops into the Toronto Pirelli World Challenger double-header at Toronto, wins Race 1 and then tries to take Race 2 from the very fast factory Dodge Viper driven by Kuno Wittmer. The Viper GT3-R owns the straights, the Porsche GT3 R owns the corners and braking zones...which one… » 7/23/14 1:22pm 7/23/14 1:22pm

[As driver Tommy Kendall notes, IMSA's got no rules about spinning the tires in the pits, leading to the smokiest of burnouts at the Sahlen's Watkins Glen Six Hours. The Vipers are goddamn gorgeous.] » 6/29/14 4:54pm 6/29/14 4:54pm

Video: Porsche 991 Turbo S vs. Dodge Viper GTS

The SRT Dodge Viper hasn't been doing so well recently, despite its nearly complete ground-up redesign. It's fast, brash, light, and raw, and is seemingly what everyone on Jalopnik wants: a supercar with a manual gearbox and the minimum number of nannies required by US law. The Porsche 991 Turbo S is the exact… » 5/23/14 11:39am 5/23/14 11:39am

The SRT Viper Now Comes In This Awesome Shade Of Green

Not to be outdone by any two-bit Corvette that Chevy happens to dump on the world this weekend, the Viper is striking back. With a new paint color! Okay, so it's not as big a bump as the Z06, but holy hell, just look at it. It's green. Very, very green. » 1/12/14 11:17am 1/12/14 11:17am

An Ode to the Viper

I recently decided that if by some miracle I was able to afford a new car in the $100-150k price range, I'd have to choose the SRT Viper. In all likelihood, I'll probably never drive one, much less come close to having the opportunity to own one. But that won't stop me from dreaming, so excuse me while I prattle on. » 11/05/13 3:30pm 11/05/13 3:30pm

Viper GTS Go-Kart? Yes Please!

This 1996 Viper GTS is being sold as a salvage project/donor car, but I say keep it as-is and enjoy. Who in their right mind wouldn't want a 450hp V10 go-kart? And with a mere $13k asking price, its almost crazy NOT to buy it. » 10/28/13 7:54am 10/28/13 7:54am

Your Ridiculously Awesome SRT Viper Wallpaper Is Here

The SRT Viper has recently gotten some flack for not being so much a track beast, as it is a beast in general. I don't care, because it's still a laugh of a car and that's why I imagine one buys it. And hey, it sure looks good, too. » 8/24/13 5:00pm 8/24/13 5:00pm

Chrysler still builds cars in the city of Detroit? Yeah, they do. And not just any cars, but 6 figure, 640 horsepower-ed, Halle Berry inspired, American supercars. » 7/30/13 10:43am 7/30/13 10:43am
