A Poisonous V10 Bite: Maisto 1/18 Dodge SRT Viper GTS
The deadliest V10 beast out there
Who doesn’t love V10 powered cars? The sound, power and most importantly speed. This car was the one that proved that V10s are just epic!
The side view of the GTS
The side view of this car is very aggressive. When you see this thing you know it means power! Starting from the front going to the back we first see the large splitter. Then is beautiful metallic gun-metal-grey wheels which look just stunning on this monster. Next to that is the GTS sticker. You then get a great look at the enormous front intakes. Unlike other supercars or muscle cars the large side intake is in front instead of back side. Below the red door and mirror is the exhaust pipe. Again, this is different then most supercars or muscle cars with its being on the side but other cars with it on the rear. Finally on the side is another grey wheel and then shiny silver gas cap. I can’t image how low the MPG on this car is!
The front view of the Viper
Now this is what I mean by how it looks just like a poisonous snake. It looks like it’s about to eat you! The 3 huge intakes and slanted down hood only add to the intimidation of this car. The turned in lights make the car look very angry. You can also see below the lights there and small holes which are to help with aerodynamics which make the car go fast! There is then the Dodge Viper logo which really paints a picture of the brand. Under it is yet another large intake.
The rear view of the Dodge
The rear only adds to the aesthetic of the car. The sideways tailights just give the rear the bold design. Carbon fiber around the rear looks surprisingly great on it. There is also more carbon fiber on the bottom of car. Being a Viper there has to be tons of intakes on the car and of course they had to put some even on the back. The final parts of the rear are the Viper logo and then a Viper license plate below it.
The huge V10 engine!
Time for the most important part of this car... the engine! It’s powered by a massive 8.4 L V10 which gives it 645 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque. Not to mention that the engine can get it from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds. The V10 power is really what makes this car so legendary. A viper without a V10 is like a Porsche 911 without a flat 6.
Interior of the GTS
When you buy a Dodge you pay for a Dodge grade interior. Again, this car is about power and speed not luxury. The best part though is that you have a manual in there! Hopefully that can make up for the trash grade interior quality. You do have though a nice steering wheel with the Viper logo right in the middle. There is also the infotainment screen from other Dodge cars.
In all this model has really changed my thoughts on this car. I used to think it was just another V10 car but sure was I wrong! I’m actually a big fan of this car. Thank you all so much for reading and comment down below you favorite part of this car.
