Big, brawny and bodacious, the Dodge Viper made quite a splash on the sports car scene when it arrived in 1992 with its unconventional take on the traditional two-seater. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is proud to present this 1995 Viper RT/10 Roadster. This example was made in Chryslerâs New Mack Avenue assembly plant in Detroit, Michigan then shipped to the Milwaukee, Wisconsin sales region.
Finished in Viper Red, the carâs paint and trim are in overall very good order, with some minor blemishes visible upon close inspection. This Viper has had the same owner for the past five years! The windshield and rear window are in good condition, as are the carâs lights, which are intact. A soft-top cover is included and side curtains of fabric with clear plastic operated by zippers were inserted into the door and hand-bolted when needed. All of these decisions were made to reduce weight. The car shipped with a tonneau cover (the soft top is removable and folds to fit in the trunk).
This snake rolls on new Michelin radials, size 275/40ZR17 in front and 335/35ZR17 in back. The tires are wrapped around gray, three-spoke factory wheels, which still look great. The carâs bodywork, a tubular steel frame with resinÂ transfer moldingÂ (RTM)Â fiberglassÂ panels, is straight and solid, the bumpers fit well to the carâs body, the carâs engine bay is tidy and the cargo area is in good shape. The battery is located in the sealed compartment over the rear wheels to increase rear-end weight and traction.
Under that big, tilt-up hood is motor with a unique cylinder configuration.Â Lamborghini, then owned by Chrysler Corporation, designed theÂ V-10Â for the Viper by recasting the block and heads in an aluminumÂ alloy, and was based on the Chrysler LA V-8 engine. A major contributor to the Viper since the beginning was Dick Winkles, the chief power engineer, who spent time in Italy.
The V-10 engine weighed 711Â pounds and produced 400Â horsepower at 4600Â rpm and 465Â lbs-ft of torque at 3600Â rpm. It completed a quarter mile in 12.6 seconds and had a maximum speed of more than 150Â mph. Buttoned to this engine is a Tremec six-speed manual transmission with a 3.07:1 rear end with anti-spin.
The Viperâs large tires allowed the car to average close to one lateralÂ gÂ in corners, placing it among the elite cars of its day. As a throwback to the old school of driving, the Viper eschewed modern safety aids such asÂ traction controlÂ andÂ anti-lock brakes. Driver convenience features on this model include air-conditioning, power rack-and-pinion steering, power four-wheel disc brakes and tilt steering column.
Inside, the old-school line of thought continues with the carâs spartan cabin. The gray leather bucket seats, which offer inflatable lumbar support and are adjustable, are in good order, as is the black carpeting. The gray instrument panel, with its full instrumentation, is in one piece and looks fine. Facing the driver is a leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel. The inner door panels, mirror glass, center console and shift lever are all in good shape. Completing the interior is a factory AM/FM stereo with cassette deck.
New-for-1995 Viper features included a passenger assist handle, refined alignment specifications and seat cushion storage pockets. Many of the body panel rivets were removed for 1995 to lend the car a cleaner appearance.
The first Viper prototype was tested in January 1989. It debuted in 1991 with twoÂ pre-production modelsÂ as theÂ pace carÂ for theÂ Indianapolis 500Â that year and went on sale in January 1992 as theÂ RT/10 Roadster.
Competition to this Dodge in 1995 included Chevroletâs Corvette Convertible, Ferrariâs F355 Spyder, Nissanâs 300ZX Convertible and Porscheâs 993 Convertible.
This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 23,117 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, actual mileage Kansas title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!
