With only 8,657 miles on its odometer, this super clean, first year GTS is
a virtual time capsule offers one lucky buyer some serious super car
pedigree at a sports car price!
This great looking 1996 Viper GTS is a rare and essentially new super car
that has been driven just 500 miles a year since it rolled out of
Chrysler's Detroit, Michigan manufacturing facility. While its Viper Blue
paint isn't as flashy as red, it's every bit as appealing; and, as the
first color the GTS body style was ever displayed in, it has become
synonymous with the car itself. The finish is, of course, virtually
unblemished thanks to expert care since the car was new. And like most
'snakes', this GTS has been a carefully tended toy rather than a daily
driver or lethal track weapon.
Even more outrageous than this Viper's swoopy bodywork is its 8.3 liter,
488 cubic inch V10 engine which cranks out a Ferrari slaying 450 horsepower, a pavement
splitting 490 lb./ft. of torque and makes this Dodge one of the rawest and
scariest super cars ever produced! It's virtually impossible to hurt one of
these Viper engines as they are notoriously over-engineered and literally
assembled for track time combat; and as a result, weekend warriors have
been putting insane levels of Boost
through stock V10s for years without any difficulties what so ever. And not
only do they perform well, they look good too, because Viper engineers knew
people would want to see the world's biggest production car engine. With
red valve covers, a red fuel rail cover, an exotic looking intake and
brushed aluminum Viper graphics, the big engine looks like it would be
right at home under the hood of a half-million dollar exotic from Italy,
despite being the heart of a heavyweight brawler from Detroit.
Underneath the car, you'll find a spotless chassis that's complete with a
Borg Warner T56 6-speed manual transmission and an upgraded Dana 44 limited
slip differential. That differential tries its best to control the V10s
massive torque, but even quick half throttle blips turn the big 335 tires
into smoke faster than you can say
the letters "GTS". The frame has been reinforced to improve precision and
address concerns about cowl shake, and the cast unequal length double A-arm
suspension features revised geometry, updated coil overs and factory sway
bars to make the Phase II Viper a little more user-friendly. Brakes are
massive discs all around, and the second generation Vipers now sport full
ABS that makes the most of the cars impressive grip. At the center of the
car, the rear-exit Exhaust system I
mentioned earlier replaces the RT/10's traditional side pipes with a much
improved roar. And at the corners of the car, handsome 17 inch forged alloy
wheels spin 275/40 front and 335/35 rear Michelin Pilot Sport performance
Like the cars which inspired it, this Viper features a fresh black interior
which places an emphasis on simplicity and performance above all else. The
seats, which have seen just enough road time to feel comfortable, wrap
great looking perforated leather around molds that are designed to keep you
in place during the most spirited driving. Between those seats, an
industrial console, props a 6-speed shifter between a simple emergency
brake handle and switches for the car's power windows. And below those
seats, like-new black carpet is protected by blue stitched Viper floor
mats. At the front of the car, white-faced gauges, which include a slightly
optimistic 220 MPH speedometer, keep an eye on the big engine's vitals. And
in front of the driver, a leather wrapped steering wheel features a racy
airbag cover that is branded with the Viper logo. At the center of the
dash, a horizontal row of auxiliary gauges is the coolest arrangement since
the '69 Camaro and its
console-mounted units; air conditioning, which is standard equipment,
functions as well today as it did when the car was new; and an aftermarket
Alpine CD player bumps beats through multiple side and rear mounted
Rest assured, putting a car like this in your garage is about the most fun
you can every have when it comes to four wheels! Call, click or visit

This 1996 Viper is the one we all wish we had purchased and socked away
when they were new, and here's your second chance. With just 257 original
miles, it is a time capsule that's a perfect snapshot of the fastest,
nastiest car on the road in the mid-1990s. Better yet, it's sinister black
on black, and includes what appears to be every single piece of
documentation issued by Dodge that year. It's rare to call a newer car
"investment quality" but that's exactly what this is.
What can you say about a car that is virtually new? The paint is as good as
factory paint got in 1996, and on the Vipers, it seems Chrysler went the
extra mile to make it look spectacular. The paint is deep and glossy, and
the Viper's plastic body panels show no signs of age-related stress. Those
silver stripes are decals, and remain firmly adhered to the hood and deck
lid surfaces with no curling or discoloration. Glass, emblems, lenses and
everything else on the exterior of this car is similarly well preserved. It
also includes the optional matching hardtop and side curtains, which have
never been installed and remain as new. Are you getting the picture here?
This is a brand new 1996 Dodge Viper.
The engine under the massive clamshell hood needs no introduction.
Displacing 8 liters and making 415 horsepower, it is one of the
most outrageous powerplants to ever settle between the fenders of a
production car. Dodge designers knew it would the focal point, so they went
out of their way to dress it up—the bright red intake manifold, the cast
aluminum valve covers with the Viper logo, dual throttle bodies all add up
to something that's just made to show off—I'm surprised they didn't put a
window in the hood like the guys who designed the new Corvette ZR1 did. The
engine is absolutely immaculate, and perhaps the fluids have been changed,
but otherwise it is as it was when it rolled off the assembly line. And
while it's a shame that it has never turned a wheel in anger, nobody can
argue that preserving this car for the future was a mistake.
Underneath, you'll find a spotless chassis, complete with a 6-speed manual
transmission and an upgraded rear differential that was part of the 1996
improvements. And of course there's the new rear-exit Exhaust system, which now peeks out from under
the center of the rear bumper, and no longer does the Viper sound like a
UPS truck on Nitrous. Those new wheels
are as handsome as they are large: 17x10 up front, and 17x13 in back, still
wearing the original Michelin Pilot Sport tires.
The interior is as black as the body, with the only contrast being provided
by the white-faced gauges. The seats are spectacularly comfortable, so much
so that Dodge offered an office chair that used a throne out of a Viper.
The steering wheel is airbag-free, and 1996 was the last year of the
tiresome passive seatbelts mounted in the doors. And yeah, that's a
cassette player in the center of the dash, although you'll be relieved to
know that this snake does have the optional A/C installed. Oh, yeah, there
are some Viper-logo floor mats, too, just in case you think about taking
this on the road while wearing dirty shoes. The trunk is all business, with
a space-saver spare and jack, but little else—there's no mat or padding
or anything back there, but who cares?
So given all that, I'm pretty confident in stating this is an
investment-grade Viper. There are surely not many that have lower mileage,
and none with as complete a document package. The realities of depreciation
being what they are, however, means that the original owner, despite
immaculate care and feeding of this super snake, has still lost a pile of
money on it. What that means is that as a savvy investor, this is your
opportunity to buy low and wait for the market to catch up. ZR-1 Corvettes
of this vintage are seeing some upticks, and there's no doubt in our minds
that the Viper is right behind. If there's one to own, this is it. Call

Dodge Viper RT/10 Roadster--D&M Motorsports Video Review 2012 Chris Moran
SEE OVER 100 IN-DEPTH AUTO REVIEWS @ www.SUPERCARNETWORK.com. A quick look
at a 1994 Dodge Viper RT/10 with Chris Moran. Presented by D&M
The Dodge Viper is one of the first V10-powered cars in the world, made by
the Dodge division of Chrysler. Production of the two seat sports car began
at New Mack Assembly in 1991 and moved to its current home at Conner Avenue
Assembly in October 1995. The car, and numerous variations, has made many
appearances in TV shows, video games, movies, and music videos[citation
needed]. Although Chrysler considered ending production because of
financial problems, chief executive Sergio Marchionne announced and
showed on September 14, 2010 a redesign of the Viper for 2012.
The Viper was conceived as a historical take on the classic American sports
car. The iconic AC Cobra was a source of inspiration, and the final version
of the Viper bears this out with its powerful engine, minimalist
straightforward design, muscular and aggressive styling, and high
performances. Some saw claims to kinship with the Cobra as a marketing
exercise, ignoring that Carroll Shelby was heavily involved in the initial
design of the Viper, and subsequent design of the Viper GTS coupe. Notably,
the later (1996 through 2002) Viper GTS coupe took a few design cues from
the Pete Brock designed Shelby Cobra Daytona Coupe. Though the proportions
seem similar at first glance, the designs are quite unique. Carroll Shelby
was key in the development of the RT/10 as well as having a hand in the
development of the GTS (Viper Coupe) model.
The Viper was initially conceived in late 1988 at Chrysler's Advanced
Design Studios. The following February, Chrysler president Bob Lutz
suggested to Tom Gale at Chrysler Design that the company should consider
producing a modern Cobra, and a clay model was presented to Lutz a few
months later. Produced in sheet metal by Metalcrafters, the car appeared
as a concept at the North American International Auto Show in 1989. Public
reaction was so enthusiastic, that chief engineer Roy Sjoberg was directed
to develop it as a standard production vehicle.
Sjoberg selected 85 engineers to be "Team Viper," with development
beginning in March 1989. The team asked the then-Chrysler subsidiary
Lamborghini to cast some prototype aluminum blocks based on Dodge's V10
truck engine for sports car use in May. The production
body was completed in the fall, with a chassis prototype running in
December. Though a V8 was first used in the test mule, the V10, which the
production car was meant to use, was ready in February 1990.
Official approval from Chrysler chairman Lee Iacocca came in May 1990. One
year later, Carroll Shelby piloted a pre-production car as the pace vehicle
in the Indianapolis 500 race. In November 1991, the car was released to
reviewers with first retail shipments beginning in January 1992.
The first prototype was tested in January 1989. It debuted in 1991 with two
pre-production models as the pace car for the Indianapolis 500 when Dodge
was forced to substitute it in place of the Japanese-built Stealth because
of complaints from the United Auto Workers, and went on sale in January
1992 as the RT/10 Roadster.
The centerpiece of the car was its engine. It was based on the Chrysler LA
design, which was a truck engine. The original configuration made it too
heavy for sports car use, so Lamborghini, then owned by Chrysler
Corporation, revamped Dodge's cast-iron block V10 for the Viper by
recasting the block and head in aluminum alloy. Some within Chrysler felt
the pushrod two-valve design, while adequate for the truck application, was
unsuitable for a performance car and suggested a more comprehensive
redesign which would have included four valves per cylinder. Chrysler,
however, was uncertain about the Viper's production costs and sales
potential and so declined to provide the budget for the modification.
The engine weighed 711 lb (323 kg) and produced 400 bhp (300 kW) at 4600
rpm and 465 lb·ft (630 N·m) at 3600 rpm, and thanks to the long-gearing
allowed by the engine, provided fuel economy at a United States
Environmental Protection Agency-rated 12 mpg-US (20 L/100 km; 14 mpg-imp)
city and 20 mpg-US (12 L/100 km; 24 mpg-imp) highway. The body was a
tubular steel frame with resin transfer molding (RTM) fiberglass panels.
Some small bits of the suspension, (tie-rod ends and parts of the front
wheel hubs) following the manufacturer's "engine first" mantra, were
sourced from the Dodge Dakota pickup. It had a curb weight of 3,284 lb
(1,490 kg) and lacked all modern driver aids such as traction control or
