Not ugly.

I think OP needs to get his eyes checked. He's the only one that thinks a viper is ugly.

A car this wild is street-legal? Sign me up =)

Also, the downforce levels of this vehicle is just nuts and over-the-top

It must have a crazy tire setup. Found this...

"The low-profile front tires measure 295/25/19 and are mounted on wider 11-inch wheels, and when combined with the 355/30/19 rear tires, provide the largest combined tire patch available on any production car."

To each their own. It's one of the best looking designs on the road. Not sure about your definition of ugly but considering the replies on this thread you're clearly by yourself.

I'll be picking one up (GTS, not ACR) before production ends in 2017. 8.4 liter V10, 6 speed manual, long hood, massive rear tires, GORGEOUS design and a soundtrack straight out of hell. As far as I'm concerned, if ever there was a perfect car, this is it.

Haha, 8.4L V10???

They should just call this the Viper 'Murcia Edition, Mission Accomplished.

Nothing to be ashamed of here. This is how we do it.

I may have the chance to drive the m4 again for a couple months. Drives better than it looks but I may feel differently with some more exposure. I loved my e90 and e46.

hahaha and yeah, I felt like there was nothing special about those. just looked like bmw's. I feel like these new M3/M4's look so special. they really stand out from the everyday bmw.

Don't care as much about the looks as the performance and driving experience. Both e46 and e90 were top of their class new one not so much. That being said I'd trade my left nut for an acr

M4 was not impressive. It was an improvement over the stock E92 in terms of speed but had little character. My main gripe with the E92 was with the stock suspension, replace that with kw clubsports and there is nothing I like about the M4 more.

I know someone getting an ACR soon.
