An awesome color combo, nearly-impossibly low mileage, and all the right creature comforts are some of the headlines for this 1998 Dodge Viper GTS. And as you look around at the full package you can see well-integrated additions that give this 450 hp supercar an even more powerful and aggressive style.
The paint closely resembles the Viper Bright Yellow offered this year, but this is actually an upgrade later in life. The silver racing stripes pay tribute to the original color, and so when you have a fresher repaint on a car that has less than 5,300 miles on the odometer, the result is something quite sleek and impressive. And we can absolutely understand why this one was upgraded to a bolder hue because it goes with the total impression. The Kinesis two-piece wheels, extended rear valance, and larger rear spoiler give this a resemblance to some of the later Viper ACR racers. This one even returned the side pipe style of the earlier cars for some added growl. It's an overall style that has a modern aggression while also fostering a growing appreciation for its growing classic iconic status. So if you live in a state that offers vintage plates at the quarter-century mark, this one is almost ready to be the sleekest, meanest, and boldest car to likely ever be labeled an "antique."
The interior has a cool looking black that shows this one wants to get down to speedy business. But as you peek further inside, you can see that the bold yellow returns to show off some terrific enhancements. This accents upgrades like the Sparco racing seats and racing harnesses. And the yellow glow to the carbon fiber trim is a particularly nice touch. While this one feels a bit more race-ready, we also love these 2nd gen Vipers, because they add comforts without losing that raucous sports car feel. So you get great features like power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, dual airbags, a tilt steering column, an AM/FM/CD stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning. So we won't accuse this of being a coddler, but we appreciate how it's a nice place to spend some time.
Tilt the large hood forward, and there's no mistaking the Viper's gorgeous red cast aluminum intake manifold and valve covers. And the ultra-low mileage means everything else also looks crisp and clean on this numbers-matching motor. The 8.0-liter V10 is what legends are made of when churning out a whopping 450 hp and 490 lb-ft of torque. There's even a Hennessey Performance intake to let this mighty motor inhale deeper. You get complete control of this via six-speed manual transmission, power steering, and a race-inspired fully independent suspension. Plus, four-wheel disc brakes and grippy ZR-rated tires are exactly what you want for stopping power. While all of this keeps the Viper nicely planted on everything from the back roads to the racetrack, you are pure intimidation just standing still thanks to the roar of the side pipes.
This is a unique and bold speed machine ready for a true enthusiast collector. Call today!!!
