well, technically its not that hard to afford a viper.. what is it, like $1250 payments if financed over 5 years.. I could do that @ 19 if I really wanted to, but I couldn't do much else but pay for the car.

Oh, OK. Yeah. It's not hard. ALL 19-year-olds make enough money to afford a viper. Also, you must not understand the word "Afford", as you say you could afford it, but couldn't pay for anything else. That means you can't AFFORD it. Afford means to be able to pay for something without having to give something else up. --It means you have that amount of money TO SPARE. Could you pay the note on the car, pay the insurance (if in fact they would even insure you), and pay the maintenance? No? Then you couldn't AFFORD it.
I'd bet money he's paying $10K a year in insurance.
Also, one more thing... I think the estimated income to be able to truly afford a Viper is around $80,000 a year... Anand's bringing in what, $1 mil this year? I'd say he's spending his money a little more wisely.
No matter how he bought it, one thing is for sure, he is way too young and way too inexperienced to be behind the wheel of such a vehicle. They should make it mandatory to take a performance driving school before buying vehicles like this, unless of course one already has such accreditation. It's just as dangerous as putting a gun in an untrained person's hand ...
maybe he owns a viper now, but $10 says he is caught with his pants down i nthe back of an '84 crown victoria, with a prostitute with him. Seems people who come into money early lose it quickly. think Macauly Culkin<sp?>
not necessarily, my bro who i gave my 90 mustang lx to, put a new tremec 5+motor, worked top end, s-trim blower, etc. it prolly is well over 400rwhp, and he can drive the hell out of it. he just turned 20. Once he cam's it, and put some alum heads on it and has it tuned it will be around 500rwhp. then again he's had a performance car for the past 3-4 years.
Its crazy people that age buying new cars as they are still learning to dry & they will definitly nick it, ding it & prang it & odds are they'll almost right it off too.
Anyway I bet he falls behind in the payments within one year.
"... Anand's bringing in what, $1 mil this year?"
I doubt it Viper, now that banner payments have been cut by more than 90% of what they were (the corporate world has finally realise that advertising on the web doesnt work, people just buy whatever's cheapest & ignore the banners & popups)
