    It's a nice car, just not as a Viper.

    I quite like it, but I agree that it's not quite a Viper... it's like something that would slot in between the Challenger and Viper. Very clean chop though!

    I looked at it again, and it's really just the nose that maybe needs a tweak. It's just a little too smooth and rounded, like a last-gen Mitsubishi Eclipse. With a more aggressive nose with some more shape I'd say you're onto something...

    check again PC, if you compare them you'll see there is a little more detail





    almost nothing was left untouched (even the tailights have been truncated and chopped). I grafted the entire bottom rear fascia from Viper and extended the entire trunk lid are back to fit the signature "Viper tail"

    Re: 2012 Dodge Viper based on Alfa Romeo 8c -for Insideline contest

    camaro_freak, sorry I forgot to commend the good job you did. I was overcome by the thought of some Kacky Lacky hillbilly driving around the Darlington parking lot in an 8C with Viper badging....



    Oh, and sorry for the fact that I was schooled past the sixth grade. Next time I'll post in the patois favored by the "I spent my high school years getting high in the parking lot" crowd....

    "Bruh. Dat s*** ain't cool. Alfa is da bomb. Don't be tryin' ta make no Dodge out of it."

    Sorry, I mistook you comment for a complaint on the chop.

    However, it is fun to think some snobby fans of brand which failed in North America could be the basis of a new Viper.

    If Mercedes can steal the Viper for their new their gullwing why can't Fiat let Dodge use an Alfa platform?

    How many 'Kacky Lacky hillbillys' can afford Vipers?
