Remember the black ferrari that raced the supra in the F&F1?Maybe they'll use the viper for a race like that(just guessing):smoker2:

the XKR i saw was Pea green and awful Bond is in a silvery coloured Vanqiush (that classic Aston silvery/gold colour they've done for years)

i know the bit you mean with the ferrari.. could be!! i can see it being used as some rich racer type guy who the "hardcore" street racers will no doubt embarass in there N2O'd up mobiles before hitting light speed and finding themselves in Star Wars Ep 3 giving a yoda a lift to the Degobah System...... hmmm im off on a tangent...

OK, we have definitely established that the vipers are indeed vipers, the person that said they werent was completly wrong, and alos, they odnt have any body kits on them as far as i can see, so the person that said they had nice body kits was also wrong, they appear to be fairly stock, but a stock viper is still fairly quick, its a nice car, if not somewhat brutish, but i guess thats in the spirit of a viper anyway.

I hope the S2000 is not turbocharged, although everything seems to have turbo nowadays, its just the default form of upgrade for a all tuners, but its kinda simpel ,adn robs alot of low end power, whihc the s200 doesnt have that much of anyway, i wish peepo would stop using so much nos, u dont even need to tune up your car if u plan on shooting nos 3 tims into your engine, a stock civic could beat alot of cars wiht 3 shots of nos (that is if its engine did not blow up)

I dont see y they have lancers either, if all they are goign to do is drag race, altough 4wd does have a better launch. (wish it had a misfiring system tho)

i couldn't agree more... it seems like Turbo's are (to me anyway) a no brainer and something that any one could have bolted on to an engine but with all the supercars (except very few) going down this road surely it's understandable where everyone is turning to the instant BHP of a turbo

e.g. Bugatti EB110 has no less than 4 turbos under it's Bonnet (Hood) this just says to me the engine isn't good enough

and nos well thats he same theory lazy BHP increases just get a bottle plumbed in and away you go the hardest thing is trying to keep the engine intact!

wont be long before people are trying compound charging ok it's not cheap but more effective than Turbo alone and a permanent engine feature unlike nos.. so i guess that means you could compound charge and nos on the same engine... if so inclined...

I think that those vipers are actually just going in for modifying. Most likely anyway.

Another waste of a Skyline... if they ditch the stickers, drop the wing, and get rid of that gay little cell phone holder thing it would look cool

Is that a superstreet sticker on the wing? How sad

that would be a half decent car if all the above coments were taken into consideration and the guy sorted out the interior.. that needs some real work!!

i really like these cars just hate what people do to them it almost puts me off them some times!!

(anyone who's got Sega GT on dream cast.. buy the Skyline and when you win enouhg races to do it up then you will see how nice a skyline can look.. i think one of the Sega programmers must own one and put it in this game.. )

The interior is what is important, and that is far too bad for me too drive.
