Even if you''re not a Dodge fan, you have to admit that without the Viper, there would be no 630 horsepower ZR1 Corvettes, no Shelby GT500 Mustangs, and probably no 500 horsepower Mercedes-Benz roadsters. The Viper made horsepower its biggest selling point, and ever since the first one hit the streets two decades ago, everyone else has been playing catch up. This gorgeous black Viper shows just 6482 original miles and is like new in every measurable way, it even comes with the original window sticker. By the year 2000, the Viper had evolved from the primitive, back-to-basics brute it was originally to an impressive grand touring car with mind altering performance. No, it wasn''t as polished as some of its competitors, but that wasn''t the point, the Viper was all about uncompromising performance. And nothing advertises that intent better than sinister black paint. No stripes, no goofy wings, just a low, wide, glittering black monster that looks like it would tear the rear bumper off a slow-moving Volkswagen squatting in the left lane. Upgrades gleaned from the GTS coupe include the vented hood with ram air, rear exhaust which sounds a lot better than the earlier side pipes, and gorgeous 18-inch polished alloy wheels. Of course, as a perfectly maintained original car with low miles, the finish is showroom fresh with virtually no signs of having ever been driven on the street. The black leather interior is in the same stunning condition, virtually unmarked and beautifully preserved ever since it was new. Wrap-around buckets are as comfortable as they look and work beautifully on the track, should you decide to probe the Viper''s considerable performance limits. White-faced gauges were innovative when the Viper first hit the market, and look even more awesome when you remember that they came that way from the factory. Increasing sophistication means that formerly optional things like A/C, cruise control, and ABS brakes were standard equipment in 2000, and thanks to Chrysler''s engineering might, everything works as it should. Who would have thought that a 550-horsepower sports car would be as reliable as an anvil? Too cool. There''s no mistaking the Viper''s gorgeous red cast aluminum intake manifold and valve covers. On the street, everyone knows better than to tangle with the big, black snake, and if its looks aren''t enough, the rumble from the exhaust system is a strong deterrent. Every hose, wire, clip, fastener, and marking from the factory remains intact, and while routine maintenance has been performed ever since the car was new, great care was taken to preserve the originality. With such low mileage, it''s also likely that things like the brake pads and rotors, not to mention the staggered wide-by-huge Michelins, are original equipment. Early Viper fans are some of the most passionate guys in motoring, and with this as their vehicle of choice, it''s easy to understand why. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
