yeah but the Viper is doing well in drifting competition. Can the ford GT say that? Thought so.

Dodge sucks.

Want top speed? Buy a Koenigsegg CCR, not a Furd.

205 is impressive. I dont understand why the tards over here have to be so "pro dodge" and blindly viper loyal as to deny the fact that the GT is a beautiful impressive car. Also as of right now there is NO NEW VIPER COUPE.

wait for what? Nothing is set in stone and the SRT looks like a honda. I would rather have a crashed GT than a pristine SRT-2000

Re: new ford gt > top speed = 205 mph

I have a hard time believing DC will not produce a coupe....doesnt make any sense, they know its what people want im sure it will be made....and i personally think the SRT bashing is old at this point....the car looks like a...Viper...not a Honda...not a Camaro, a Viper....I think its time the SRT bashers get over themselves...especially a basher that can sit there and bashe the srt because they dont like what it looks like, but go after someone for not liking the looks of the Ford GT... :thumb:

...and to use Smokin's thinking for this...190+ is impressive(for a vert), 0-60 in less than 4 seconds is impressive, running the 1/4 in less than 12 seconds is impressive, 97ft braking from 60 is damn would beating!, pulling 1+g on the skidpad is impressive. I dont understand why the tards over here have to be so damn ignorant that they wont even allow the car to grow on them, and deny the fact that the SRT is a beautiful and impressive car. Also until 1996 there was NO NEW VIPER COUPE, and Dodge had said all along there would be none.

Re: new ford gt > top speed = 205 mph

i like all these cars and more. the new viper srt-10 is awesome and the coupe that follows will be even better. chevy's new C6 Z06 that will hit the streets in 2006 will be a great car too. i have always liked the ford gt-40 since i sat in one as a youngster and i watched my bro go for a ride in one at firebirds roadcourse here in arizona. the one my bro rode in was the same one i sat in, bastard. it has a 427 and is heavily modded for racing. its on the back cover of the gt-40 book at your local bookstore. they hit 150 mph down the main straight away as they passed me in my old road race car (see my gallery pix). i used to race wheel to wheel (well sort of) with this original (read - $ 1 million) ford as he would get right on my rear bumper as we snaked thru (cobra reference) the esses b4 hitting the main straight where he would blow by me. yea, its an original and the owner is friends with our family and he owns lots of car dealerships, mostly ford dealerships.

yea, he is gonna get a new ford gt and park it next to his original gt-40 that he paid $1 million for back in the 1990's. he also owns a original 427 cobra from the 60's that i sat in back in the 1980's when i was a kid and worked at his ford dealership. i used to race wheel to wheel with this car too on the road course in my old road race car back in the 1990's. i knew the previous owner he bought the gt-40 from thats where i first saw it. i went over to the previous owners house when i was a kid and sat in this gt-40 and watched all the mechanics at his house work on his vintage formula 1 car (nikki laudas 1983 f1 car). i sat there dreaming about the day when i would be like this guy. still working on that one and a new ford gt will bring me one step closer to my vision. i will wait a couple of years to buy mine until the prices come down (fingers crossed) and buy a used last year (2007) production model and avoid paying premiums and taxes. my budget for the car is 150k so we shall see. in the meantime i will keep pimpin my viper and modifying it to get ready go road racing again here in the future.
