Reality, 1. The Gen V Viper is the very best Viper ever built. Drives better, more HP, safer, and has more to offer than previous models. I’ve driven one and seen many. 2. When you consider the base model and what it offers over the previous (2010) Viper at a cost difference of $12,200 it’s a bargain. Note: the base price for the 2010 was $90,255 versus the 2014 at $102,485 3. Look what you get for $12,200. Additional 40 hp, Launch control, 3 stage stability and traction control, (few will say the Viper didn’t need this). More, Aluminum flywheel, modified intake manifold, modified intake cam, forged pistons,3:55 rear end, led lights, voice navigation system,with XM radio and internet . Not to mention a new body, and interior. I’ve read these forums and many many of us have installed these abovementioned upgrades on our gen 1,2,3,and 4’s including me.
