Here's the sweet spot in Dodge Vipers. This 1996 RT-10 roadster is the desirable second generation, with updates in poise and power. But it doesn't lose the hardcore reputation that made these wind-in-your-hair supercars the ultimate machine for true power drivers. Now look at the ultra low mileage, exceptional condition, and lots of documentation that comes from this one-owner car. Now you realize that this is the ultimate collectable too.
You gotta love the early Viper roadsters. It has a body built for sin with nothing else added into the mix. The giant motor was cloaked in a minimalist swoopy design that earned its snake bitten name. The Stone White paint, and matching white wheels, make this one look like it's trying to appear innocent, but we all know better. Those dual blue racing stripes are iconic classic American that also remind you of the Viper's true all-out sporting nature. Best of all, this one-owner car was so well cared for that the paint's condition tells you it never hit the track. Weight is the enemy in this sports car, so there are racing style side curtains and a racing cockpit cover. Plus, when you want to truly button this one up, it comes with an Autoform removable hardtop that matches the car, right down to the blue stripes.
Inside, it's all about the right equipment for a pure speed machine. The black leather bucket seats keep you planted behind the wheel, and there's no room for sliding around in an interior that completely envelopes the driver. Your arm fits so that your favorite resting spot is right on top of the gear leaver. A full gauge package is at eye level, and the black-on-white background readouts couldn't be simpler. There is room for a bit of luxury such as keyless entry, original AM/FM/cassette stereo, and air conditioning. The leather on the wheel, gearshift, and parking brake are even in a cool blue to give you a similar accent color to the exterior.
Tilt that large hood forward, and there's no mistaking the Viper's gorgeous red cast aluminum intake manifold and valve covers on this low milage example (only 19,627 actual miles). This all original powerplant holds a nice upgrade that happened in 1996. This one is quite desirable because the power in the 8.0-liter V10 jumped from 400 hp to 415 hp. You get complete control of this via six-speed overdrive manual transmission that then sends the power to a beefy 3.07 limited slip rear end. This is backed up by a fully independent suspension, large four-wheel disc brakes, power steering, and super-sticky Michelin Pilot tires. While all of this keeps the Viper nicely on everything from the backroads to the racetrack, you are pure intimidation just standing still thanks to rumbling sports exhaust. Best of all, starting in '96 it was exiting out of the rear instead of the sides, so you don't have to worry about burning you leg when exiting.
You'll know this is a cut-above classic Viper the moment you see all the documentation that includes, the original window sticker, owner's manual, warranty card, and there's even the original VHS introductory tape! There's no finer modern muscle out there for the price. Call today!!
