I dont think there was anything special about my Gen 4, people had just never seen what a re-geared Viper would run like on the street with a sticky tire, and at that time 99% of people confused gen 3s for gen 4s (as only the hood gave away the entirely different car underneath).Less, more, or the same the gen 5 viper was advertised to be faster than the gen 4 when it came out. Yes, I do agree with how cars run in the real world vs what manufactures say. Funny my example is with an r8 plus as well. I had a 2006 viper with just headers, exhaust, and intake. R888’s of course. The Audi R8 was a 2019 I believe. From a 60 roll maybe I was 1 car ahead. We did it 5 times. Not only was he surprised but so was I! Plus there are those cars that are special. I think your orange car was special! Not all gen 4’s would be that fast. We’ll see how the Emira turns out. Hope they just make a version faster than the old one for me The whole thing is incredible tho. Great looking car!
