The latest episode from MotorTrend’s “Ignition” features one of the coolest supercars launched in 2012, the SRT Viper GTS. The Viper GTS was put to an extreme performance tests by Carlos Lago and professional racecar driver Randy Pobst hit the Laguna Seca racetrack to see if he can charm this snake. Both drivers come away with some positives and negatives.

As a reminder, the new Viper is powered by an all-new 8.4-liter V-10 engine that delivers a total of 640 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque. The new engine is mated to an improved Tremec TR6060 six-speed manual transmission and sprints the sports car from 0 to 60 mph in about 3.4 seconds. The Viper GTS tops out at 206 mph.

So, does MotorTrend think it’s worth paying $124,990 to buy the new SRT Viper GTS? You will learn that by watching the video. Enjoy!

yeah, but that guy was also so enthusiastic about the car. Also, there are so many options...

I suppose you saw very well in the film that the car is a little bit slippery and, at least for me, that would be a problem.

for marry: well, if you are so lucky to buy yourself such a sports car, I think the most wise decision is to do some drive-tests.

I am not a big fan of sports car, so can not tell much about this one. I don’t enjoy much its design.

I like this car. Looks petty nice for one from its category. I think it is a good option.
