This Is The Best Classic 1996 Dodge Viper GTS You Can Get (Photos)



Before the Challenger was catching the eyes of muscle car enthusiasts there’s was a beast back in the day called the Viper. It was an absolute sports car with all the ingredients with its powerful V10 and a manual gearbox. Well, it’s a shame that this classic has been discontinued but this 1996 model is a real collector’s item.

As evidence of its state, this model although 24 years old has just 37 miles on the clock so basically it’s brand new. The previous owner had no intentions of driving the car when purchased that’s why it’s still in this condition and the car is begging to be driven. Power comes from a naturally aspirated 8.0 V10 that outputs 450hp and 490 lb-ft of torque. It is mated with a 6-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential and its a rear-wheel-drive.

A step inside the cockpit and you will be greeted by that old 90s sportscar vibes which will make any enthusiast giggle. The interior is fitted with plastic and leather all cladded in black with the fit and finishing still sparkling fresh. You won’t get all the latest tech like a navigation system but a modest CD player and climate control. The features are basic but it doesn’t take the fun out of driving this vehicle.

With all that in mind know that this car is not cheap. The reason is obvious because it’s almost brand new and it is gradually entering the full classic realm. This car worths $77,000 0r ₦30m before clearing which is more than the Challenger SRT Hellcat.
