Vipers in the Media
Not every place Viper appears, but noteworthy
articles or videos. Newest at the top.
Chris Harris from Top Gear finally gets his hands on the Gen V
Viper ACR. This is a must watch. Chris has been making
excellent car videos for years, and I was super happy for him
to grab a spot on the new Top Gear Team. I hope he gets more
screen time soon!! Click the photo to head over to Top Gear's

Here's a pretty good article about Ralph Gilles on If you've never met Ralph, he's a total class
act. You couldn't ask for a nicer person and bigger car guy than
Ralph. Slide on over to Surface Magazine and read up by
clicking the photo to the right.

A truly amazing short film from Pennzoil called "The Last
Viper". Only a couple minutes long, it's just awesome. The
Viper was modified for drifting with a different steering rack
since Vipers don't drift well, and while the exhaust sounds are
all actual Viper exhausts, they aren't all from this car.

You'll have to head to your Netflix for this, but there's a great
episode of the show about design called "Abstract" about
Ralph Gilles. Definitely worth a watch. Click the image for the
YouTube trailer.

Viper: The Snake Strikes Twice (47:47)
If you have 50 minutes to spare, check out this documentary
from WheelsTV. The credits say this was made in 2007, but it
only chronicles the first two generations of the car, so it must
really be from 1997 or so.

A slightly annoying, but information-packed ten-minute video
about the Viper by Donut Media from their great series "Up to
Speed". Definitely check this one out.

Here's a pretty good review of a first gen car. Lots of props to
them for clarifying that the Viper's engine is NOT a truck
engine. Man, I hate it when places say that. Be sure to check
out some other Regular Car Reviews, as they post some pretty
funny stuff.

Viper: DNA of a Supercar (22:01)
An incredibly over-dramatic promotional video of the Gen V
car. I pity the anodized carbon TA they are flogging around on
a dry lake bed. You'd never get that car clean again.

"7:01". A 24-minute documentary on the Viper's
privately-funded return to the Nuremburgring. It glosses
over the whole story, but it's an absolute must watch.
