2008 Dodge Viper Coupe
2008 Dodge Viper Coupe
Want an affordable way to get your hands on a top-notch super car which has serious collector pedigree and can handily smoke pretty much anything on the road? Then step right up and take a look at this well cared for 2008 first year generation 3 Edition Dodge Viper. 10 Cylinders power this 600 HP mill, and a 40% decrease in overall weight from the original version. This car is definitely a neck snapper. If you're looking for the best version of one of the best super cars ever built, this Third Edition Viper is your ticket!
A paltry 4,800, (Yes that is Four Thousand Eight Hundred Kids!) miles shows on the clock. This car collector consigner never raced it, or tracked it, never smoked in it, and never beat it up. When it was not being enjoyed it was garage kept. Kinda like a well-tended toy.
From the very front tip where the integrated aerodynamic HID headlights are housed, to the rear spoiler which stands high and proud this wide white striped snake dressed in Venom Red Metallic is a designer's lesson on the use of a french curve, and integration of various parts and functions. Of the many fascinating aspects of this exterior design, the two highlights for this writer are definitely the 6 -yes count 'em -6 hood vents that are gracefully carved from the sensuous curve of the hood, and serve an actual purpose that is to feed precious air to the engine. The second is the integrated exhaust exits which run along the rockers, but do not show themselves until the bitter end in front of the rear wheel well…just genius, side pipes without side pipes. And borrowed from the Mustang are the hockey stick reversed induction cowls on each front quarter, bordered by the VIPER badge. Even the hood line is reminiscent of the DODGE Daytona prototype cars that drivers of yore would stuff themselves into for hours on end racing against the clock…a tight fit! Forged polished H spoke wheels, 18x10's on front and 19x13's on the rear add some bling to the bottom, and this car runs on rails.
A swing of the small roof wrap around doors and we see 2 tone gray and black playing with a curved line to form the panels. For the 2 occupants Viper offers up gray suede inserts with smooth black leather bolsters. These seats are much like racing seats, as they sport the curvaceous side wrap in panels too. A large center console races toward the dash, and at the dash is all the original instrumentation in the form of deep set circular white faced trio of gauges with a digital ODO readout in the speedo. Right out of racing tradition, the tachometer and not the speedometer remains the largest central gauge. Nice black carpeting covers the floors, and those are topped by white embroidered Viper badged carpet floor mats. Utilitarian meets functionality, with just a smidge of luxury would best describe this interior.
“Line up for the money shot!” the director shouts as we lift the hood. Underneath an 8.4 liter 600 HP V10 fed by EFI, and backed by a 6-speed T56 manual transmission (TR6060) sends power to the rear axle with 3.07 gears. This rear is a Dana M44-4 Carrier GKN Visco Loc LSD unit.
With only 4,800 miles you would not expect to see anything out of the ordinary, and we do not! Just clean ground effects panels, 4 wheel independent suspension with coilovers and power Brembo disc brakes.
Just a pure pleasure to drive this baby with the low miles I can still smell the showroom, or was that my new penny loafers?! Anyway a quick starter, that has monster acceleration, and a smooth cruise without even breathing. No fluff needed here, just pure unadulterated excitement, kinda like driving a piece of road art, which was cut from a masterful design cloth of heritage road racers.
You will not go wrong with this sports car, as it has factory everything and it all works! All buttoned up and ready to roll and throw some miles on this slot car. “When the snake bites…”
