    Yeah those are probably my favorite, that carbon fiber lip spoiler is so choice. Now is the time to jump on a Viper, they are going up in price. They hit the low point and now are holding and growing. With everything going DCT, people will pay premium for the 3 pedal hero cars after they have their fun with the tech.

    I want SWII for my Gen 2 GTS. The SWII are by fast the best looking wheels ever offered on an OEM car imo.

    Yes they are light as **** too, like close to the weight of the carbon wheels on the gt350r while being wider too.

    How was it only 58k? Does it have miles or a hit on it?

    Sick car and deal either way. I watch autotrader and it seems like GTCs I like disappear fast

    Congrats! Cant go wrong with a gen 5 Viper. These cars are 7 yrs old now and people still take pics/vids of it while your driving and ask what kind of car is that? And yes the styling is awesome. Nothing else like it. I do think they'll be collectible and sought after in the years to come due to its raw design, rareness, and its huge engine, manual trans combo. A modern day Cobra so to speak

    Always loved those cars. I'm getting to the point of looking at them as well. Just so unique amongst all the familiars. The aftermarket parts costs are what give me pause though. No way I'd want to leave it stock lol.

    lmao now that you said Walmart. That's where my Viper was delivered a few years back because that was about as close as the driver could get to my house. He had a truckload of cool vehicles he was delivering all the way up the east coast, and had to unload a couple of them to get my Viper off the truck.

    By the time my Viper rolled off the truck, a crowd had formed as they thought it was a car show, and someone called the cops.

    So after looking the car over I noticed it looked lowered, I thought maybe someone put springs in it but nope they put coilovers in the car.

    And I ordered a set of monoblocks, just have to wait 5 weeks for build time. Looks like I’ll drop roughly 5-8lbs per corner with the wheels.
