Re: Caught this beauty at my local gas station tonight

Nice. One reason I love Michigan. It's one of the most beautiful cars in my opinion. I love my viper TA but this beast is in another league of aesthetics and super car competition. I'd take this over the Aventador and its chief competitors any day.

You caught it, but we're you able to hang on to it?

Thanks for the post.

Re: Caught this beauty at my local gas station tonight

Agreed coming from another Viper owner. I just hate it was made by Ford and it has a V6?! Unacceptable!

Re: Caught this beauty at my local gas station tonight

The engineer driving it said they were doing some final calibrations to it and shooting some video of it for upcoming commercials. He said that this one was the closest of the three cars to the actual production car. The night before they drove the Gt, a Ferrari 458, and I believe he said a Lamborghini through downtown Grand Rapids, MI. Must have been an awesome aural experience.

Being only a few miles from the racetrack I usually head over when I hear screeching tires, but today must have been too windy for the sound to carry over to my house. I've seen some pretty cool things over there over the years.

Re: Caught this beauty at my local gas station tonight

Rear view looks really nice! The side and front profile imho is just blah. But it does make up for that with its new car scent. 👍🏼

Re: Caught this beauty at my local gas station tonight

How did it sound with the Ecoboost? I'm still not sure how I feel about a V6 in a high end sports car such as this.

I only hear it pull up. No v8 rumble, but still sounded healthy. Similar to a Nissan GTR I'd say.

The only reason I can think of to even 'like' that awful state.

That's an awesome car. Surprisingly, I don't love it in that color. I want to see it in the blue that they had on the prototype at the auto shows!
