I do like vipers alot but the motor is a disappointment and easily the worst sounding v10 on Earth.
"No replacement for displacement", they barely squeeze out 60hp per liter.

I *know*, you routinely see heavily modded S54's pass Vipers like this one, right? ....right?



I guess that was heavily modified... at least a modded NA S54 can do this, right?

....oh.

C'mon guys, the S54 is awesome but can we stop pretending the V10 is somehow pathetic?

Why would they care? Engines aren't taxed on displacement here.

Agreed... the only car that should have a viper engine is a viper, if that lol, or a truck

The coolness of the original viper and performance/$ of the newest one cant be denied though

That white one is badass, I don't know what you guys are smoking. That thing has loads of power to drift and burn like that.

Well yeah, green one is a pile of shit. But it seems the general tone is that the Viper motor in the 46M chassis is lame and I think it's badass when done right, like the white car.

The white car has a bmw s85 engine. Some crazy ways to waste money out there. Talking about the green car.

Um, how did I miss that.

My bad. I still think the viper motor would be a cool way to waste someone else's money
