The all-american V10 supercar was supposed to be a modern day Shelby Cobra, and to some extent it actually was. With the old Dodge Vipers, you always get the sense that it was built by people in a shed.
The 2013 SRT Viper even has launch control, but of course this old one you see here (looks like a 1996 model) has no electronic aids whatsoever. It was involved in a one-car crash last Tuesday in Long Island.

The car broke an utility pole and damaged the power lines at about 1:20. According to, the damage was repaired and the road reopened by 8:15 in the morning.

The driver of the rolled Viper suffered serious injuries and was taken to hospital. We wish him a full and speedy recovery. This just shows how dangerous these crude performance cars can be.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
