Wanna Scare Yourself? Then Bid On This 1995 Dodge Viper RT/10

The original Dodge Viper features arguably one of the most iconic designs in supercardom. Back in the early 1990s, it also used to be one of the most extreme things on four wheels money could buy, largely due to its monstrous 8.0-liter V10.

The engine put out 400 HP (406 PS)465 lb-ft (630 Nm) of torque though the rear wheels via a, rather recalcitrant, 6-speed manual transmission. While it might not look much by today’s standards, it was a big number at that time and the Viper RT/10 Roadster could accelerate to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.6 seconds and cover the quarter mile in 12 seconds flat.

In spite of all that power, it lacked any modern driving aids, such as stability and traction control or anti-lock brakes. You didn’t even get airbags, which Dodge claimed was intentional in order to reduce weight. This made it quite a handful, as the Viper could bite you very hard.

With that in mind, get a load of this relatively low-mileage Emerald Green 1995 example getting auctioned off on Bring a Trailer. The ad specifies that it has covered 19,000 miles (30,577 km) and has a working A/C, new Michelin Pilot Sport tires and a Kenwood head unit.

It also features tan leather upholstery, matte black upper dashboard (repainted) and 3-spoke directional wheels, which were last offered on the 1995 model.

According to its Carfax report, this Viper hasn’t been in any accidents or suffered any structural damage.

So, if you like a very scary totally analogue experience and believe that you can tame this capricious snake, you might want to take a look at it. At the time of writing, the highest bid was $23,456 with four days left until the auction closes.

    In 1995, my buddy’s dad had just gotten one of these. One weekend, they had a cookout where he was showing off the car. On the gravel driveway, he gunned it. The rear wheels broke lose and he drove it right into a tree. Totaled.
