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 Yesterday 2:15pm

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
