1. Dodge Viper GTS
My first three thoughts on the Viper were, in order, “It’s a f*cking Batmobile!”, “Where the hell is the hood release,” and “Wow, this is the longest pedal I’ve felt in my life." I had this car for a week, and ultimately, it reminded me of all the hopes and dreams you could ever have for an old Mustang, wrapped up in the extraordinarily visceral package otherwise known as Viper. Based on nothing more than seat-of-the-pants feel, it accelerates more quickly than a Hellcat, offers up plenty of cornering prowess on smooth roads, and has just enough technological interference to prevent you from killing yourself. But only just.
