1996 Dodge Viper GTS Coupe
996 Dodge Viper GTS Coupe
Consider this: Every single Dodge Viper GTS coupe that rolls out of the Conner Avenue assembly plant in Detroit comes equipped with air conditioning, leather upholstery, power windows, power door locks, dual airbags, an anti-theft alarm and an in-dash CD player with six speakers. Cushy, cushy, cushy. Thx to Andrew BornHop from Car Culture!
For consignment, a 1996 version of the Dodge Viper in GTS form.. Meaning more horsepower, more luxury and less weight and with the V-10 it now puts out 450hp to tear up any road you may want to carve through hill and dale. Only the same year's Porsche 911 Turbo is quicker, but this one has more luxury and features. A mere 4,553 miles clocked on this 1 owner garage kept beauty and it's definitely like new. Read on!
Fiberglass with reinforced plastic is sculpted to create the sexy curvaceous body which is truly all racer. From the chin spoiler to the mid grille air dam, to the front of the car that curves upward to the long GTS hood with a small air intake in the center, aero head lighting open for all to see on either side of front quarters, along with fog lights in the round on the front corners it's all moving while standing still. Some shark gills are on top of the front quarters to keep the brakes and engine cool, and a cove is created by those front quarters for the doors, just above a wide rocker which creates the thresh-holds. A wonderfully rounded roofline melts into greenhouse glass which flies upward on the tail to make a rear spoiler. Careful, the rear tire is right there under the B pillar which melts into the rear quarters that eventually curve around to form the back of the sports car which have the ubiquitous curved tail lighting for all Vipers from their inception. A body matching neoprene bumper and dual central located exhaust tips under the rear roll pan peek out from under the wide stripes which are running the gamut of the car. This model bathed in Viper Blue Pearl with white painted stripes, it's all over for the exterior, but it ends in race car greatness, as it appears ready for the track sans the number on the side. All this rides on 17-inch polished 5 spoke wheels wrapped in the factory 275/40ZR17's in front, and 335/35ZR17's in back.
Several sacrificial animal hides are applied throughout this interior with its sporty high back curvaceous black leather buckets that are flanked by a wide center console. The design utilizes seamless construction of this console to melt into the dash in front where climate controls, an AM/FM/CD stereo and on top a 4 count of white faced round gauges to keep your eyes on the vitals of the engine. In front of the driver are more white faced round gauges deeply unset into a crescent molded dash top that has a few digital readout clusters of warning lights. A leather wrapped rally style steering wheel reaches for the driver frontage of this dash. Black carpeting floods the floors, and above is a black headliner. The doors are completely molded for a clean sleek look and are also in black.
Stuffed under the forward hinged hood is a massive red headed V-10 8.0 liter mill. It has EFI and a T56 6-speed manual transmission. Rear tires are spun by a 3.07 Viper rear axle. All very clean and very powerful.
Nearly like the showroom with just a few scuffs on the underside of the front fascia and just plenty of straight structural steel, and cast aluminum suspension which includes independent coil springs for front and rear. Power disc brakes are all around, and a like new dual factory exhaust its snaking its way to the back off the car.
Very seductive, I slipped inside and popped the clutch and was off like a flash to the test track. Here it had me falling in love with its rail-like handing, neck snapping acceleration, and ease of operation with surprising comfort and plenty of options to keep me occupied. All in perfect working condition. Definitely an E ticket ride.
Inspired by Peter Brock's Daytona Cobra Coupe, this GTS is a throwback to the 60's, with its twin stripped exterior, luscious curves and V10 power, right down to the gas filler cap cleverly disguised as a racing fuel filler hinged version. 1 of a mere 1166 versions built, 1 owner and low low original miles, it's worth a look, and then some as it is virtually a new car ripe for the picking from our Hallowed Halls here at Classic Auto Mall.
