I would routinely get 22-23 mpg on highway at cruise speed in my '10 ACR, even with the aero producing drag and no cruise control.
I know that more aggressive gearing in the new Gen Vs though will definitely have an effect on cruise RPMs and fuel consumption (as well as, as pointed out...
Didn't I read someone's review of their Gen V recently on here where they talked about how after the 500-mile break in period, the beast really came alive? Throttle response was among those (as well as the suspension and even the seats became more comfy).
Congrats on the TA.
What I posted on another forum (Native Kentuckian living in Lexington, about an hour or so east of the Corvette Museum)
Kentucky is full of caves, even rumored that the Mammoth Cave system in western Kentucky (where this happened) is connected to the Carter Cave system in the eastern side.
From a DriveSRT.com photo contest they did some time ago. Had to show the web site in the picture.

So not exactly my car in a magazine, but I did inspire Esquire to do a segment on car rivalries.
My letter to their editor:

Re: 2010 Woodhouse special ACR convertible - only 20 made - how much should I pay for
I had #13 of the 20, red/black that I sold to a determined Canadian buyer. I had it for 2 years and put 10k miles on it.
Feel free to PM me for the details.
Took off my visors very early on. 2 screws, I think with Torx heads if I recall. Stored them in the garage and put them back on when I sold it.
Driving around I just wore a ballcap and glasses. Every time.
I can vouch for dcreech0 and his black Gen3. I've met him a couple of times and he's got a thing for nice toys. It's a great car, and I'd be glad to take it off his hands if I weren't in the middle of my own car-stuff and trying to free up a garage space.
I had a dealer offer me a '13 for $1000 over invoice about a month ago. It's still sitting on his showroom floor.
Hoping for some movement from SRT towards getting these sold. I keep inching closer and closer, and a rebate or good financing would definitely push me over the edge.
Re-reading it again, it's nothing short of insulting to current, former, and future Viper owners.
Slamming the couple with the 65 Vipers unnecessarily?
Praising European styling and power over American?
Ditching the V-10 for a V-8?
Insinuating the Ralph Gilles is all personality...
