2009 Dodge Viper SRT-10 Test Drive

Our friends over at Insideline.com were lucky enough to test a 2009 Dodge Viper SRT-10 for six months. That’s right, six months of thrill rides all over the streets of towns all over the country. This beast is equipped with an 8.4-liter V10 that makes 600 hp and 560 pound-feet of torque. Have fun you lucky dogs!

While we were sitting vigilant on the front porch trying to keep our guns, the Government done snuck in the backdoor and took our cars.

“The last of the muscle cars!” “The end of the V8!” “We’ll never see anything this good again.” These tenets of the automotive world have been repeated and retracted more times than we can count, and knowing that, we’re confident in saying that this, the 2009 Dodge Viper SRT-10 is certainly the last of the truly bonkers muscle cars and the end of the made-in-the U.S.A.

In a time when unintended acceleration and wild oversteer are dominating the headlines, a Dodge Viper in our fleet of long-term test cars makes perfect sense. With 600 horsepower available from an 8.4-liter V10, unintended acceleration and oversteer should be a daily occurence. And that’s exactly what we’re hoping for with our new Long-Term Road Test toy, the 2009 Dodge Viper SRT-10.

This 2011 Infiniti could be a real player in the luxury sedan segment!

From Autos.MSN.com:

Trendy midsize luxury performance sedans don’t have the option of growing old in their demanding market; there’s simply too much competition. That is why Infiniti is releasing an all-new series of M sedans. On sale in March 2010, the 2011 M37 and M56 pack more power, better fuel economy and a new 7-speed transmission in a chassis more rigid than ever before. Toss in a host of new electronic bells and whistles and statement-making styling changes, and you get an elegant yet sporty package that is designed to satisfy.
