You don’t have to be a Grand Theft Auto (GTA) fan to like the Bravado Banshee, a virtual, made-up model that is a kind of Viper-spoof for you make quick getaways in. At least not when it comes to this actual recreation of that car, made in real life using the underpinnings of a 2006 Dodge Viper SRT-10.

Chrysler Orders 93 Donated Rare Dodge Viper Prototypes Destroyed

Read more

This is one tough story to swallow, but as you'll soon find out for yourself, it's not all black and white. What happened is that, Chrysler ordered the destruction of 93 original, pre-production Dodge Vipers of the first generation model from the early 1990s that it had donated to various schools and universities across the States for educational and promotional purposes.

Why, oh, Why? First Generation Dodge Viper Pounded and Crushed

Read more

We’ve seen cars crushed because they were illegally imported to the United States. While I totally disagree with this practice, let’s just say there is some logic behind this, as some cars are deemed unsafe for U.S. consumers.

Are you ready to take a trip back to the past and the year 1994?

This Corvette has been Poisoned by a Viper GTS

Read more

True, Corvette C4's are dime a dozen in the market as Chevrolet sold more than 366,000 units through its production cycle that lasted a full thirteen years from 1983 to 1996, but there's something fundamentally wrong with turning a 'Vette into a…Dodge Viper GTS – mind you, it has been done before.

American Couple Owns the Largest Collection of Vipers, 65 of Them!

Read more

Amassing a Jay Leno-esque collection of cars is hard not to justify as the ultimate car guy’s dream, but for me at least, it's definitely down to the diversity, and the wide span of years that he has managed to cover. However, there are people who just like one specific car more than other models, and they buy a lot of them, picking which to take out based on color.

If you had any hopes of getting into one of the Italianized versions of the Nürburgring-record setting Dodge Viper ACR, Zagato's Alfa Romeo Stradale TZ3, you may as well put them to rest as the last of the nine-hand built cars rolled off the brand's assembly line and will be presented by its new owner at the 18th annual Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance field on Sunday, March 10.

We Drive the 2014 Corvette Stingray and Pit it Against the ZR-1, Z06 and a Few Vipers on GT5

Read more

The new Corvette Stingray is the car everyone and his or her mother wants to get their hands on. As we were discussing our frustration for not seeing the Detroit Motor Show’s most anticipated new model driven by someone else aside from the company’s people, we had an epiphany.

The Corvette Stingray is already available for us to drive whenever we feel like it, for as long as we like and on any track in the world. True, it’s not in the metal, but in virtual form via the free DLC (that's downloadable content to the uninitiated) on the Gran Turismo 5 (GT5) Playstation video game.

Viper’s Nest: 2013 GTS Snake Goes Against Heavily-Tuned 1997 Predecessor

Read more

Mad, bad and dangerous to know and drive: it’s a description that fits the Dodge Viper to a tee. Until the 2013 brand-new SRT model, that is, which has gained all kinds of bells and whistles and is supposedly a more user-friendly kind of supercar.

The latter term is relative, of course, as all who have driven the 2013 SRT Viper agree that it is more civilized than its wild predecessors but still remains an animal when you push it to the limit.

SRT Boss Does 5,000 Miles in a Viper GTS to Get to Jay Leno’s Garage

Jay Leno loves two things: jean shirts and cars. Being an American, he has a soft spot for homemade models, especially those with a powerful engine under their hood.

One of them is the Viper. Leno already owns two of Chrysler's flagship sports cars, having brought the original way back in 1992 and then, since he wanted a coupe, a GTS as well.

Texas Hold'em: 1,150WHP Dodge Viper vs. 1,300WHP Lamborghini Gallardo

Read more

As if the Dodge Viper and the Lamborghini Gallardo supercars aren't powerful and fast enough in completely stock form, some owners opt to tune them to the extreme, sometimes going as far as even doubling their outputs.

During the Texas Invitational Fall 2012 Roll Race Event this past Sunday, October 14, there was a race held between two heavily modified versions of the previously mentioned sports cars, both of which featured twin-turbocharged engines.

1,100HP-Strong Chevrolet Pickup Truck Terrorizes Sports Cars on the Highway

The makers of the TX2K12 video series have shared a clip of a highly modified Chevrolet pickup truck challenging numerous tuned sports cars including a Corvette, a Dodge Viper, an older generation Chevy Camaro, a Ford Mustang, and even an 800-hp Toyota Supra – all on public roads in Houston, Texas.

And yes, as you probably already have figured out, there's nothing legal nor safe about these street races…

New Yorkers and tourists passing through Times Square were treated to a rare sight this past weekend when an assortment of specialty cars were parked on the road for their viewing pleasure.

The vehicles that stood out the most were a Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 dressed in a chrome foil wrap with contrasting red pin stripes decorating and highlighting the supercar's hard edges, a Batmobile replica from Tim Burton's 1989 Batman film and a Dodge Viper ACR.
