In love...

So, for those who havent heard...

this weekend was KILLER!! Went to see a movie with a friend, as we were leaving she ran into an old coworker...he wanted our spot for his car...pulls around the corner in a candy apple red Dodge Viper!!!

So, anyway, all boring chat aside, I got to DRIVE!!!

Totally incredible, I am so in love!! She was awesome!! 825 HP, handled like a dream...the power was unbelieveable!!! I would almost give up my bike for a car like that!!

So, thats all, just wanted to share!

I'd like to know what was done to that engine. They arent nearly that much stock. Around 600HP I believe.

This is from reviews in the mag when comparing it to other cars like the Z06.

I still want a mini cooper s and own some fancy pants cars at the gap.

I cant remember all the details, I was a lil dazed and glassy eyed after taking her out...

I know he had a twin turbo system (i think the venom system), full racing setup, custom heat shielding, a custom frame addition to assist with the torque, etc, etc...

he was totally cool, gave us the keys, we took her out to play...

i got pulled over but no ticket, that cop was furious at me (we were on private roads and he couldnt keep up)!! then he thought we stole it, but he didnt even have a clue what it was...called it in as a red sports car, unknown make and model...*sighs* dork.

I only said I might consider trading it...its his weekend only baby...not an everyday driver so gas would be no obstacle

as for handling, compared to anything else I have driven that is the least bit sporty, and for as large as it is...it was insane!! Gives new meaning to hugging the turns, and the feel of it beneath you, there is no fear that she'll leave you, but the torque was incredible, ya just got to hang on and drive it *ahem* like you stole it!! But i had permission!!
