And who says the Viper is an exotic car? Isn't it more an obscene raw muscle car? Its not known for elegance, or comfort, or class, it has always been known for raw power.

Fuzzy that sucks, I would absolutely love to have that car. My dad had one on the lot a couple years ago and I was very close to buying it. A 4dr sports car like that is practical and fun. That sucks, I think I am shedding a tear for you myself.

I would love to see the looks on the faces of engineers at Porsche, Ferrari, and Lambo with you placing the viper in the exotic class.....haha, you might get shot for that.

Thank man. I appreciate it.

My favorite past-time on the STI was messing with Stangs.

They never knew what hit them.

It's known for raw power and has classy body that stands out and not own by many. That's what makes it exotic. All exotic cars are not comfortable because it is design to handle corners and speed. Most of these exotic cars do not have luxury items because it is weight saving design. You want comfort and luxury, get a Bentley, MB, RR.

Well I have never heard of something that is purchased locally being considered exotic.

exotic(ĭg-zŏt'ĭk)

adj.
From another part of the world; foreign: exotic tropical plants in a greenhouse. See synonyms at foreign.

Yes, but it is done by the manufacturer and is a mass produced vehicle. Different thing.

I don't care for the cutout hood but I can easily forgive that minor faux pas. Only $16,000 more than the Viper and $10K of that is the carbon ceramic brakes.

I'll never buy one but it will make the Z06 much more affordable.

how about sl600? Not contesting about that but those will not handle corners as well as the more stiff suspension built in ferrari, or gt3. Porchse is nothing of comfort but handling and speed.

In the end these are all mostly street cars, so they the differences in handling are negligible.

Plus, all these manufacturers make "track only" versions of their cars.

I guess that owners that live in Italy, German, or most part of European considered that their cars is just a daily driver. Shoulda bought a Ford mustang, that's exotic.

How old are you? 18?

Ferraris and Lambos in that area are like us driving GT40s here. They may be made there, but they don't have them running around like mustangs. Now had you used an argument of BMWs being driven around Germany, that would have beena good comparison. But you can't possibly think in Italy they all have Ferraris as much as the population here owns mustangs. Thats just retarded.
