2010 Dodge ViperEnlarge Photo
The Viper's been a brashly styled supercar from the moment it was born, back in 1989 as a concept car. Only two generations old, the Viper has been offered in the original, more cartoonish body style from the 1990s (which also came, briefly, as a roofed coupe), and in today's composite-fabricated shape, which is significantly cleaner, more streamlined, and maybe a little less outrageous than before--but still slack-jawed awesome. It's still the stuff of teenage car-doodling dreams, with that long, curvy hood and bubblicious roofline. We're much less in love with the chintzy cockpit, but short of growing real fangs, we find it hard to imagine a detail that would make the now-cancelled Viper any more menacing.
