The most brutally insane vehicle I have ever driven!!
Since I sold my 2003 Corvette, I've been pining for a Viper GTS. Had my heart set on a Dodge Viper for a long time. Originally wanted a 96-97 Blue/White combo, but those are extremely hard to come by. Only 1500 or so were ever built, so I kept an eye out for any other colored GTS I could find. Preferably Sapphire blue or Silver.
I finally found one in Escondido, CA.
Had it shipped all the way to Tracy, CA. It has only 32,000 miles on it.
A little more about the car.
V10, 8 Liter Engine, Deep Sapphire Blue Pearl, 6-Speed manual Transmission.
Black leather Interior. One of only 130 ever made of this color in 2001 without Stripes.
In 2001, there were a total of only 827 GTS produced. These cars are put together by hand. I am super proud to own one of these. Just 10 years old and it is already a classic and a collectors car. This body style was only made from 1996 to 2002. It is the most popular distinctive and loved design of all Vipers. Chrome Alloy Viper wheels. Borla Exhaust. Upgraded Audio system with Bluetooth, USB, MP3, Sirius Satellite Radio and iPhone inputs.
It is very raw and sometimes uncontrollable. It has been said that the Dodge Viper is a real drivers car and is extremely unforgiving if not handled right. Seriously, the car wants to kill you.. Very high Torque and no Traction control.
There were just 7000 Viper GTS ever produced worldwide. I've been told that only about 60% exist on the road today.
I am still crazy about corvettes and still own my 1970 Stingray, so I will continue being a 'Corvette guy'. But I Love my Viper!
Oh well. Fun times!! :)
