Beautiful, 2-owner GTS Coupe with only 3,500 original miles! One only 1,166 first year coupes ever produced! Instant future collector piece! Currently fitted with modern 19″ HRE Performance Wheels!
Choices were few in the high-performance rear-drive two-seat sports car class in the early nineties, but Dodge answered the cries from the public with an 8.0-liter V10 engine powered monster. America’s biggest and most powerful production engine to date, it delivered almost 400 horsepower and only came mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox. Exposed exhaust pipes ran along the rocker panels, adding to the Viper’s no-holds-barred appearance. Body panels were made of fiberglass-like composite materials, bonded and bolted to a tubular steel frame. Antilock braking and a driver-side airbag were unavailable. Red was the only available body color at first, and Vipers did not even have exterior door handles or roll-up windows. Standard equipment included an FM/AM stereo with cassette player and leather upholstery. Vipers filled the needs of many, and left the sports car community in awe, as they had seen nothing like it since Shelby’s 427SC Cobras of the 1960’s. A new version would be introduced in 1996 as the GTS Coupe. A gorgeous shape with a more powerful 450hp V10 engine under the hood, only 1,166 lucky buyers would have the chance to own one. Being a coupe, air conditioning became standard, as did power windows & locks for the first time. Safety measures also added airbags for both occupants.
Finished in the factory original Viper GTS Blue Pearl exterior with Stone White stripes, and complimenting Black Leather interior, this Viper comes to use with just 3,580 actual miles on the odometer! Well equipped with the powerful 8.0L V10 engine 6-speed manual transmission, air conditioning, Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo, power windows, power locks with keyless entry, original spare tire, fog lamps, tilt column, racing style fuel cap, intermittent wipers, and upgraded custom fit 19” HRE Performance Wheels wrapped in Nitto tires measuring 275/30ZR19 up front and 335/30ZR19 at the rear! Included with this special GTS coupe will be the original owner’s manuals never removed from the plastic, and the factory set of 17” wheels & tires.
An instant classic, many early Vipers found themselves in the hands of inexperienced performance car drivers, and most saw an unfortunate early demise (they hit a lot of stationary objects), mixed with the low production numbers each year, it makes the originals very collectable. To add to the rarity of this masterpiece, the Chrysler Corporation has announced that the Viper will no longer be produced after the 2017 model year. Having been cared for by only two previous adult owners, the first keeping it for 20 years before parting ways with it just last year, and never having seen modification or butchery, this is a rare and refreshing find. A fantastic driving car with no hidden issues, ready for road trips or just park it as an investment piece.
