There are few cars in history that have made a mark like the Dodge
Viper. The idea was simple, 2 seats, massive powerplant, big tires
and the "bigger is better" mentality. The new-and-improved Viper
that came out in 1996 featured an updated chassis as well as
improved suspension and brakes. It all made the car more manageable
at speed, and it was a more comfortable car to be in. None of the
speed, however, was lost. Horsepower was up to 450. Motor Trend
called it "pure, unvarnished, wet-your-pants performance." The
Viper GTS's raw, no-frills, manual-shift driving experience is also
increasingly rare among today's crop of computerized paddle-shift
wizardry, so Vipers will appeal to enthusiasts looking for a pure
driver's car. It's collectible already, but it looks set to only
become more collectible in the future.
