Description
"Let me show you 'my' SNAKE."

Viper is one of the 50 original cars from Carmageddon: TDR 2000. It first appears in Hollowood, being one of the first vehicles the player encounters in the game.

Design

It is a 1994 Toyota Land Cruiser Blue Marlin FZJ80R, which was exclusively available to the Australian market. It has a snake livery.

Performance

Viper is not very durable and isn't good for wasting cars either. Its saving grace is its top speed when fully upgraded, being able to reach 261MPH[1].

Driver

The driver, named "Jake Viper" in the files, wears a green dress and green boots, both with a blue snake design. They have purple hair, purple lipstick, and green-tinted glasses.

Trivia

  • Viper's folder name is "PanVan". The files within are named "PanelVan".
  • Jake the Snake was a professional wrestler of the 80s and 90s.
  • The "snake" mentioned in the unused description is most likely referring to the male reproductive organ, making this character's gender ambiguous.
  • Viper uses the same base model as both TNT and the Green Hammer. This is even more evident as Viper can lose its bed cover, becoming a pickup truck.
  • Viper is one of four cars with the same "12" race number. The others are: Leadpumper, The Twister, and Khaki and Crutch's car.
  • Inside the files for Viper there is an info .txt file for an earlier iteration of the vehicle:

    • DESCRIPTOR "PanVandescriptor.txt"
