If you want some exclusivity or the feeling of it, that would be a good idea. Just ask yourself when last and how often have you seen them since release? Because I'm sure it's not often at all.

Plus it's just about the best version of the Viper (to me). Perfect mix of a pure American car with some European influence.

And if you can push for ACR ownership, here's view of what to expect:

With the ACR pushing roughly $120k sub taxes, I think it's a steal... 645hp, 640lb-ft of torque

I think it'll really come down to your exterior styling preferences. As much as it has that italian styling tied in, it just looks like an aggressive obnoxious beast on the road. As the NSX looks a lot more sleek, refined, and elegant... Perhaps like a Swan

If you're adding the viper to your car collection, then chances are you won't be driving it that often compared to a daily driver like the NSX. To each their own and if you can afford both, why not?

I've actually read a review about someone attempting to daily drive a viper. It was compared to playing darts with a sledge hammer. Unaware if they were talking about the Gen2 though..

That is indeed a downside but it really depends on the individual, some people can really put up with driving a car like that every day. It just takes a serious gear head to do that. I've seen guys drive fully track prepped Hondas on the street, these things were barely street legal.

Definitely. Given in my younger years, I've driven Hondas with solid mounts all around, gutted interior, straight piped, etc. I really don't mind the "lack of luxuries" and rough rides. I actually quite enjoy it.

yeah and these days most cars that are made with daily driving in mind are more than good enough. It might discourage the new comer to the brand but someone who really wants the NSX will have no problem putting it up to daily.

Agree completely. These are enthusiast vehicles meant for the drive.

Was looking at the configuration page and found this picture where the grille is two different colors. Is this just form lighting or is there another grille option we can choose?
