Vehicle Description

2002 Dodge Viper GTS for sale in our Tampa Showroom. This 02 Viper GTS has 37,947 actual miles and is painted in the very desirable Graphite color. With only 545 total GTS coupes made in 2002, this is a future collectible. With only 181 of those being made in Graphite Metallic, this is not something you’ll see on the streets, and probably not even at the shows! You can stand out from the crowd in this beauty for sure. Wtih 450 horsepower and 0-60 times in the low 4 seconds, these Vipers flat fly! Top speeds recorded right at 200 MPH put this car in a class all its own. Many manufacturers are still trying to reach that milestone with a production car, and this Viper accomplished it 15 years ago! This car is all about speed, but Dodge still managed to give the creature comforts we’ve come to expect with A/C, AM/FM/CD player, power locks, power windows, power brakes, power steering, anti-lock brakes, tilt wheel, telescopic pedals, keyless entry, seat belts, leather interior, driver and passenger airbag, anti-theft system, aluminum alloy wheels and performance radial tires. This is the last year for the second generation Viper, which ran from 1996-2002, and the lowest production of Coupes in that time period, by far! The Viper began in 1988 when Chrysler president Bob Lutz recommended building a modern Cobra to designer Tom Gale of Chrysler’s Advanced Design Studios.  Carroll Shelby was influential in design also and used the legendary AC Cobra and Shelby Cobra Daytona as his inspiration. At the time, Lamborghini was a subsidiary of Chrysler and they were tasked with casting a prototype aluminum engine block for the Viper based on Dodge’s V10 truck engine. The concept car was originally named Copperhead and first appeared at the North American International Auto Show in 1989. The concept was a big hit and Chrysler chief engineer Roy Sjeoberg and Team Viper got the ok to develop the concept car into a standard production vehicle. In May 1990, Lee Iacocca approved production of the Viper and retail shipments began in January 1992. That is quite the list of legendary figures who had their hands in the production of this vehicle. Don’t miss out on your chance to own not only a piece of history, but a car that is just incredibly fun to drive!
