진정한 아메리칸 킹코프라로 불리는 2015년형 닷지 바이퍼 GTS입니다. 일단 생김새부터가 예사롭지 않지요. 1992년에 1세대 모델이 생산되기 시작했고 지난해부턴 5세대 모델입니다. 세대와 세대간의 구분이 모호하긴 하지만 공식적으로 지금 나온 모델을 5세대라고 부르네요. 미국의 황금기를 떠올리는 v10 8.4리터 대배기량 엔진으로 최고출력 645마력을 냅니다. 물론 최근에 나온 모델들이 과급장치로 짜내는 출력과는 좀 다른 성격이지요. 이 녀석은 타봐야 그 느낌을 알 수 있습니다. 트럭 타는 느낌이 들다가도 서킷에선 괴물로 변하기도 하고요.
물론 배기량 만큼이나 먹성이 좋아 연비는 안습이지만 어찌 이런차를 탐내는 이들이 연비 걱정을 할까요? 호불호가 확실한 모델이지요.
