Now where have I seen that livery before?

The Dodge Viper ended production earlier this month but it looks like their creativity department closed years ago. This is the Viper ACR-X, an off the shelf American racer. The ACR-X has the massive 8.4-liter V10, but gains various racing bits and bobs to give it 640 horsepower. This is all very good but where have I seen that livery before? Oh, yeah! The new BMW M3 GT2 Art Car designed by Jeff Koons. Now it can’t be that hard to doodle on photoshop then slap some stickers on to a race car to make it less of a blatent rip-off.

If this was the direction that the Dodge Viper was heading for, maybe it is a blessing that it has been killed off.
