    How fast was that Viper going? All I saw was a black streak with a splash of red. The Viper, the most underrated exotic car on the market. Definitely a best buy for super cars!

      That’s all we saw too…but the guys at the track said the Viper was going 135 MPH when it crossed the start/finish line.
