View Full Version : My Murci



white out
02-20-2011, 04:08 PM
I pulled the trigger on a '03 Murci yesterday. I would like to thank Roy Cats & Tim (colorinc) for all of their help with purchasing the car.

I traded in the Viper and took delivery of the car in Vegas. Valet out front of Vdara. Dinner at Yellowtail. Drive to San Diego.

Hit a snowstorm on the way back. Hit 160mph on a pull. Managed 100 on the strip. . . and absolutely love it.

Here are the iPhone3g pics, DSLR to come:

Quick Review:
The Murci is much more responsive than the Viper; it doesn't constantly try to kill you; more comfortable, quieter (for now); the clutch travel/shift throw is about 1/4 of the Viper's; and it gets WAAAAAY more attention.
The Murci is a HUGE car; horrible rear visibility, even with camera; brakes are in need of an upgrade, the car takes MUCH longer to stop than the Viper; it also likes to cruise at higher speeds on the freeway.


Congrats, Nick. You still going to lurk the Viper boards? Car looks good. Can you give us a comparison to the Viper?
I will probably still stay around there. Viper is still my #3 favorite car (Zonda R, Murci, Viper).

There's a lot to look over on these cars. Minor things can cost thousands to repair. I would have a PPI on any car you're looking at.
Depending on year Viper, the Murci is faster in a lot of areas.

Congrats! Looking forward to your review!!


Looks good! I've been waiting for this thread... Can't wait for the DSLR pics, be sure to include the interior too.
I'll have to take some of the interior. But it's black with silver stitching.


That Murci is screaming for some ADV.1's...
I need to recover from the purchase first. :lol:


Congrats!!! Way to be patient and get the one you wanted!!!

I can't make it on gR this year, my schedule will not allow for it. I am trying to make it for a night though. :D

It was. There were white out's at times. We had a line of cars/SUVs trailing on the 15 at one point. :lol:

Roy talked me into this car after a half hour on the phone. . . and he had no association with it. Truly a great person.


You lucky SOB, congrats! Remember seeing one of your posts where you weren't able to get one at an auction. Great to see it worked out this time.
Yeah, I am really glad that I didn't get the auction car, even though it would have allowed me to keep the Viper.

I was debating on ROE'ing or TT'ing my ACR. But after talking with a friend we realized that in 6 months I would be back wanting a Lambo, so I went this route. But I absolutely love the Viper.


Congrats on the new ride! How are you liking it compared to the Viper? Massive difference in power and performance?
Totally different than the Viper.
The Murci is much more responsive, but I cannot tell if it's faster on the freeway. The Viper stops much more quickly (I had genIV Viper brakes).

I absolutely love those wheels. Just need to wait a little longer for wheels.


Nick,

Bring it by when it comes time for exhaust and other goodies - well take good care of that bull ;)
I'm actually looking to have a very basic exhaust built for the car. none of the current offerings meet my needs.

I used to '00-'02. But the bag is too great to get rid of.
I ride Palmer now, cheap ass, old Palmer.

What is it like as a daily? Idk how tall you are, but I am 6'3" how is the headroom? My time in a murci is always in a roadster so I am wondering about the coupe. I've got the itch....

It's great!
The ride is more comfortable than the Viper. With the nose lift up, it doesn't scrape. I've never high centered it. Quiet when you want it to be, loud when you want it to be.
I highly suggest a rearview camera, it makes life much easier.

I'm 5'9" and there is about as much headroom as in the Viper.
