Mention Viper to any gearhead and they will immediately think of two things, the 90s TV series and the muscle car itself. The Dodge Viper is one of the most charismatic muscle cars to come out of America and is still able to turn heads when one is seen on the road.
This particular 1994 Viper finished in red is on sale today at RK Motors Charlotte with a price tag of $58,500. Why the high retail value? Apparently this car is one of the last few surviving first-gen models and is an original two-owner, 793km Viper.
Looking at the muscle car’s exterior and it still looks immaculate as if it just rolled off the factory line.
The cabin on the other hand is a no-frills affair as Dodge emphasized on the car’s on-road performance, not on creature comforts and top-level interior trim.
Living under the hood of the RT/10 Viper is an 8.0-liter V10 that puts out 405 PS along with 630 Nm of torque. All of that muscle is then transferred to the rear wheels via a 6-speed manual Borg Warner T56 transmission. It even has a factory limited slip differential for added performance.
It also doesn’t hurt to know that this car came with independent front and rear suspensions, 17-inch wheels, four disc brakes and an AM/FM radio cassette player that still works.
Other features that present in the surviving RT/10 Viper are: factory-optioned air conditioning, leather bucket seats, Viper-branded floor mats and white-faced instrument gauges.
