10 Cars the Viper is shorter than (in overall length).
Mr. Dat Incredible ChadKake suggested that I use the overall length of the Viper instead of just the wheelbase. So in this article, I’m going to do just that (there may be more articles including stuff like width and height). Enjoy! Oh before I forget, the Viper is 175.7 inches overall (or 4,462 mm).
10: Lamborghini Aventador.
Truth be told this doesn’t surprise me one bit. The Aventador is a good 10+ inches bigger than the Viper! Sitting in at 188.19 inches (or 4,780 mm). That’s a big bull.
9: Jaguar F-Type.
This one surprised me a little bit more than the Aventador. The F-Type being 176 inches (or 4,470 mm) long. The funny part? I had originally looked up the Huracan first and the Huracan is just 0.1 inches shorter than the Viper. Interesting right?
8: Chevrolet Corvette C7.
As seen in the wheelbase article, the Corvette is surprisingly big. Getting a measurement of 176.9 inches (or 4,493 mm) long. So at least in terms of length, the Viper is not as big as most people make it out to be. However, the Corvette is far narrower, being 73.9 inches wide whereas the Viper is 76.4 inches wide (or 1,877 mm for the C7 and 1,940 mm for the Gen V respectively).
7: 991 Porsche 911.
I was shocked too. Apparently, it’s true though. The 991 generation 911 is longer overall than the Gen 5 Viper.
Here are the stats.
Gen 5 Viper: 175.7 inches (or 4,462 mm) long.
991 Carrera: 176.8 inches (or 4,490 mm) long.
991 Turbo: 177.4 inches (or 4,505 mm) long.
991 GT3: 178.9 inches (or 4,544 mm) long.
Those are some mind-melting numbers huh? I really didn’t think the 991 was a longer car than the Viper but there you have it. Width though? Now that’s a story for another time.
6: Ferrari F12 Berlinetta.
This one isn’t surprising in the slightest. The F12 comes in at 183.3 inches (or 4,655 mm) long. Much smaller than the Aventador (which surprising) but far bigger than the Viper too.
5: BMW M4.
Talk about your show stoppers. If you want to leave your friends gobsmacked then just tell them that a BMW M4 is bigger than a Viper and watch their jaws hit the center of the Earth. Seriously, the BMW M4 is 184.5 inches (or 4,686 mm) long. That’s (astoundingly) longer than the F12 above! If you ever wanted a bombshell well then you just got one. Although, this isn’t as bad as the next vehicle I’m calling to the witness stand.
4: BMW M2.
Objection! “How can this be possible!? The regular 2-Series isn’t that big! Moron!” You’d be right. The normal 2-Series is only 174.5 inches (or 4,432 mm) long. The M2 is 176.2 inches (or 4,475 mm long). However, if you look at the 991 above, it isn’t unheard of for different variants of a vehicle to be bigger than others. And tell me, do you honestly think it’s impossible for the M2 to be fractionally bigger than the regular car? I didn’t think so. Although, even I have a hard time believing the M2 is longer than the Viper. That really is Earth-shattering. Actually no, it’s perception-shattering. Something we often put to much focus on, rather than the real results (and or the truth) behind a given car (or a given stigma).
3: Mercedes AMG GT.
For this car, I have a little bit of a double whammy. The AMG GT comes in at 179.0 inches (or 4,546 mm) long. And 76.3 inches wide (or 1,939 mm). Why did I include the width?
Because. If some imbecile comes up to you and says “Yeah but a Viper wouldn’t fit on European roads.” Just tell them “The AMG GT and the Viper are 76 inches wide, therefore you should have no problem driving the Viper through Woking.”
2: Toyota Corolla.
I need to stress that I’m at a crossroad here. On one hand, I think I shouldn’t even have to point out that a Viper is shorter than a Corolla (spoilers). On the other hand, it does slightly surprise me and I know that giving a car known the world over does give a pretty good estimation as to how small the Viper is. So honestly you can decide whether or not this was a good car to include in this list. The Corolla is 183 inches (or 4,648 mm) long. Making it just shorter than that of the Ferrari too.
1: Hyundai Genesis coupe.
Bet you completely forgot about this gem eh? It is still longer than the Viper though. With a length of 182.3 inches (or 4,630 mm) the Genesis Coupe is another car that is just slightly longer than the F12 (which makes the F12 look huge if anything). Truthfully this wasn’t the first car that came to mind, but it was the most uncommon and I thought “Why not?” So here it is.
