The mighty Viper needs no introduction. Over the top since day one, America's most dramatic sports car has ALWAYS been about excess and performance above all else. In 1992, after three years of successfully teasing the public with a variety of prototypes, Dodge introduced the brutal RT/10 Roadster – an offering that upped the super car ante by virtue of classic good looks and raw, Detroit-style muscle. And today, there's STILL nothing on the road that can compare to a Viper in terms of sheer audaciousness. With only 493 miles on its bright orange odometer, this super clean snake is a showroom-fresh piece of modern MoPar history. If you're a fan of style, speed, track capability or flat-out wicked performance, here's an opportunity to put the 'you' in 'ultimate sports car'!

BODYWORK/TRIM

The best part about buying a vintage Viper, the car that single-handedly reignited its parent brand's legendary performance legacy, is the understanding that you're scoring an elite level of both performance and history. This Dodge wears a slick, garaged body that's been limited to less than 1K miles of sunny day road use. That body was factory-equipped with wet looking, and predictably named, Viper Red two-stage. That two-stage is a highly desirable option which, with factory provenance, definitely plays to the new owner's advantage. And predictably, everything adds up to a showroom-fresh sports car that's free of any notable flaws.

ENGINE

The fire-breathing mill rumbling under this car's trick hood needs no introduction. Displacing a massive 8.0 liters and turning stout 9.1 to 1 compression into 400 horsepower and 465 lb./ft. of torque, this 488 cubic inch beast is one of the most outrageous powerplants ever bolted between two fenders. Dodge designers knew their coveted big block would be the car's focal point, so they went out of their way to dress things up with some Bright Red paint and menacing Viper scripts. And, honestly, the resulting display is so impressive that I'm surprised the MoPar guys didn't install a Lexan window, a la C6 ZR1. Naturally, this roadster's V10 is absolutely immaculate, from its dual throttle bodies all the way down to its aluminum oil pan, tubular stainless exhaust manifolds and regularly refreshed fluids. And everything around the block appears showroom-fresh, presenting as clean as the day the car rolled out of Chrysler's Detroit 'snake pit'.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Under this drop-top, a spotless chassis cradles a Borg Warner T56 6-speed, which spins power to a tough Dana 44 limited-slip differential and interstate-happy, 3.07 gears. That impressive drivetrain hangs in a tubular space frame, which employs power rack-and-pinion steering and an unequal-length independent suspension. At the center of the car, massive exhaust tubes flow into rowdy side-pipes. At the corners of the car, power-assisted, 4-piston calipers clinch large, vented rotors. And all this thoroughbred hardware rolls on clean 17-inch wheels and ORIGINAL 275/40 front and 335/35 rear Michelin XGTZ speed-rated directional radials. That's right; this Viper's former owners were so schooled in self-control that its factory-equipped tires still display plenty of tread life!

INTERIOR

Like the classics that inspired it, this Viper's simple interior puts the emphasis on performance and usability. Front-and-center, comfy seats wrap textured leather around molds that are designed to keep occupants in place during spirited driving. At the center of the car, an industrial console anchors a short shifter between a leather-wrapped emergency brake and factory-spec, premium cassette player. Below that console, thick, Viper-branded floor mats protect like-new carpet. At the front of that carpet, white-faced gauges keep an eye on the big engine's vitals. And in front of the driver, an aftermarket-look steering wheel spins a brilliant, Viper-branded horn button around a tilting column.
