Gift ideas: 2008 Dodge Viper

If you’re going out shopping for a new sports car this year and you have $85,000 in your pocket, get the 2008 Dodge Viper. At first glance it looks like a small toy car but under the hood and when you step the gas pedal, the experience will always be exhilarating.

The power of Dodge Viper is based on the fact it has 600 horsepower engine. Even the NASCAR restricted cars don’t even come close to the Dodge Viper’s power (only 470 horsepower). Under the hood features 8.4 liter V-10 engine which means this could be a fuel guzzler without any effort. But then again, it’s not really geared towards those who wanted to be fuel efficient. Unfortunately, a single digit mileage will automatically prohibit you from using it in California (at least on public road).

For the price you pay, the 2008 Dodge Viper will not only give you power but sleek corner control. You can easily manage those u-turns without any challenges at all since it uses one of the world’s most grip efficient tires – the Michelin Pilot Sport 2. The positioning of the tires is also geared towards speed but with grip that will still ensure your safety.

If there’s one thing that will make you hesitate to spend your $85,000, it’s the dashboard. The speedometer is too small to be seen from the driver’s perspective. Checking your speed when you’re flying 100mph is very dangerous as you might need binoculars to know your speed. It will also be a problem to control your speed as this beast will urge you to press the gas even more. But if you can afford the car, you can afford the speeding tickets every now and then
