Right after SRT unveiled the new Viper to the world, Jay Leno reviewed the pilot car. Unfortunately, Jay couldn’t legally take it on the road, so we didn’t get to see his typical test drive.
Now, the new supercar is back in Jay Leno’s Garage for a more detailed review and the long-awaited test drive. The car was brought to him by SRT CEO Ralph Gilles himself. In fact, Gilles – a true car guy – actually drive it 5,000 miles across country, so Jay could feature it.
Before its date with the track, Jay took the Viper on the typical drive that he is known for. This drive culminated in a fantastic burnout, and Jay and Gilles mocking Chrysler’s former owners, Daimler, for not knowing what a burnout was. After its relatively calm road test, the Viper was pushed to its limits at the Willow Springs test track.
Watch the video and see if the new Viper’s on-the-road performance managed to impress Leno.
