For Sale: 2001 Dodge Viper in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

An awesome color combo, nearly-impossibly low mileage, and all the right creature comforts are some of the headlines for this 2001 Dodge Viper GTS. But the reason why you really want this collector-grade example is because it still knows how to unleash the full force of is 450hp V10 at a moment's notice.

Dodge offered special colors with the Viper, and this Viper Race Yellow was rarely found on the palette. In fact, there were less than 550 completed in this generation during the color's short two-year run. That's why it's so special to have this factory paint appear all original and in such nice condition. The shine is also exceptional thanks to a recent ceramic coating. It has averaged only about 300 miles annually, and you can tell this Viper GTS was babied all its life. The panels have an excellent fit, the wheels have a mirror-like shine, and the overall impression is that this one didn't leave the garage for anything but very special occasions. But we know you won't be able to resist adding to the ultra-low odometer. After all, this has a sleek look of a slingshot that just begs to be let loose on your favorite roads. Heck, this is even ready for the track with a roof designed to accommodate racing helmets and factory racing stripes.

Those exterior stripes remind us how good black looks against a vibrant yellow, and so you'll also really love the all-black interior. And low mileage meant there was little time to dirty the carpet or even put a crease in the leather seats. We love the these 2nd gen Vipers, because they add comforts without losing that raucous sports car feel. So you get great features like power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, cruise control, an AM/FM/CD changer stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning. There are even nice safety features like dual front airbags and anti-lock brakes. But the full feeling isn't really a coddler. The extra bolstering of the sport seats, bold white-faced gauges, and confident mechanical action of the stick shift are a reminder that this is for real drivers.

Tilt the large hood forward, and there's no mistaking the Viper's gorgeous red cast aluminum intake manifold and valve covers. And the ultra-low mileage means everything else also looks crisp and clean on this numbers-matching motor. The 8.0-liter V10, is what legends are made of when churning out a whopping 450 hp and 490 lb-ft of torque. You get complete control of this via six-speed manual transmission, power steering, and a race-inspired fully independent suspension. Plus, four-wheel disc brakes and grippy ZR-rated tires (new rear ones) are exactly what you want for stopping power. While all of this keeps the Viper nicely planted on everything from the back roads to the racetrack, you are pure intimidation just standing still thanks to roar of the dual exhaust.

Complete with the owner's manual, this is an exceptionally preserved and bold speed machine ready for a true enthusiast collector. Call today!!!
