Getting your hands on a top-notch super roadster which has serious collector pedigree and can handily dispatch pretty much anything on the road!

Virtually new in every way, this pristine 2001 RT/10 roadster features vivid Viper Red paint which, unlike most modern cars, displays a fantastic wet-look finish and super smooth reflections. After the car’s one and only Mopar collecting owner drove it off the showroom floor, he decided that he wasn’t very satisfied with some aspects of the car’s factory paint. So, he sent his showroom fresh Viper straight to the body shop where its factory blemishes were removed from the hood vents, driver’s door, right rear fender and optional hardtop, then buffed to a fantastic shine. Like all of our featured Vipers, this car has been a meticulously cared for toy rather than a daily driver or a weekend track weapon; and as a result, has led a very easy life which involved a minimum of sunny day driving here in Charlotte, North Carolina and a lifetime of climate controlled storage. Naturally, fit and finish are exceptionally good with composite body panels that show no signs of age-related stress, and a glossy, smooth paint job which is nice enough to adorn the fenders of a painstakingly restored show car.

Inspired by the classic lines of the Shelby Cobra roadster and the modern flair of Dodge’s own Stealth performance coupe, the Viper RT/10 was an absolutely revolutionary design when it debuted, and is still considered an exotic today. The front of the car centers a menacing Dodge crosshair grille between a smooth chin spoiler, clear HID headlights and optional halogen fog lights. At the top of that grille, a red snake skin textured Viper emblem leads your eye to the cars functional ram air hood which features heat extractors, a centered air intake for the motor, and a passenger’s side air intake for the climate control system. Behind that hood, pristine factory glass which is bordered by body-matched mirrors and unique B-pillar mounted door handles is topped by either a black convertible soft top or a red accessory hard top that has never actually been used. And at the sides of the car, aggressively sculpted doors and chip-free fiberglass rockers sit between super wide rear fenders and body-matched “Viper RT/10” emblems. At the back of the car, a small glass window rides between an integrated center high mount stop lamp and a second red snake skin textured Viper emblem. And showroom fresh tail lights hang above a stylized rear bumper, which features body-matched “Viper” and “RT/10” scripts and aftermarket center exit stainless exhaust tips.

The engine under this cars massive clamshell hood needs no introduction. Displacing a massive 8 liters and turning a stout 9.6 to 1 compression ratio into 450 horsepower and 490 lb./ft. of torque, this 488 cubic inch aluminum beast is one of the most outrageous powerplants ever bolted between the fenders of a production car. Dodge designers knew the big mill would be the cars focal point, so they went out of their way to dress it up a bit by coating the ram tuned aluminum intake manifold and cast aluminum valve covers in a slick coat of bright red paint and menacing Viper logos. In fact, it’s such an impressive piece that I’m really surprised the Mopar guys didn’t put a Lexan window in the hood like Team Corvette did for their new ZR1. Pampered by the same owner since it rolled off the showroom floor, this Viper’s big engine is absolutely immaculate from its dual throttle bodies all the way down to its aluminum oil pan, tubular stainless exhaust manifolds and regularly refreshed fluids; and everything under its hood is showroom fresh and looks as clean as the day the car rolled out of the ‘snake pit’ in Detroit. Have those throttle cables ever stretched to the wide-open position? Has the dual speed fan or aluminum water pump ever had to strain to cool the engine after a 150 MPH blast? Has the air cleaner ever attempted to swallow a squirrel as it throws almost 1000 cubic feet of air toward the cars aluminum heads, hypereutectic pistons and forged steel crank? Absolutely not! Rather, this car’s meager 12,106 miles have probably consisted of a lot of idling and a few passes down the street on the day it came home instead of the full throttle, octane rich joy for which it was designed and built. And while that’s a shame, nobody can argue that preserving this car for the future was a mistake.

Underneath the car, you’ll find a spotless chassis, that’s complete with a Borg Warner T56 6-speed manual transmission and an upgraded Dana 44 limited slip differential which carries interstate-happy 3.08 gears. Part of the Phase II Viper updates included a reinforced frame, which improves precision and addresses concerns about cowl shake, and a cast aluminum unequal length double A-arm front and rear suspension which utilizes revised geometry, updated coil overs and factory sway bars to create a more user-friendly track experience. This new revised suspension, when combined with the stiffer chassis and aerodynamic body, raises this cars lateral grip to 0.98 and allows slalom runs which exceed 70 MPH! At the center of the car, the rear-exit exhaust I mentioned earlier has been upfitted with an aftermarket cat-back system which sends air through great sounding Corsa mufflers to give the big V10 a much improved roar. At the corners of the car, four wheel disc brakes, which come equipped with both standard electronic distribution and a state-of-the-art anti-lock system, squeeze “Viper” branded dual piston calipers around 13 inch rotors. And keeping all this thoroughbred hardware rolling down the road is a handsome set of 18 inch polished aluminum wheels which wear ORIGINAL 275/35 front and 335/30 rear Michelin Pilot Sport performance radials. That’s right; this Viper’s owner is so schooled in self-control, and the car has been so well preserved, that its factory equipped tires still display plenty of tread life!

Like the roadsters that inspired it, this Viper features a fresh black interior that places an emphasis on simplicity and performance above all else. The perforated leather bucket seats are so comfortable that Dodge actually licensed their design as an office chair; and the door panels, while simple, feature both a satin finished door handles and trick emergency releases. In front of the seats a large dash, which still features its factory warning tags, holds clear white-face gauges above a crystal clear CD player; and between the seats, a satin finished shifter holds a leather shift knob above buttons for the car’s power windows and a satin finished and leather wrapped emergency brake handle. Below the seats, Viper logo floor mats protect like-new carpet, and behind the seats, built in storage bins lock to secure small valuables. Connecting the driver to the road is a nice leather wrapped, three spoke steering wheel. And behind the cockpit, the fully finished trunk is all business with a jack, a compact spare tire and just enough space to store a couple of car show chairs.

Not only does this awesome Viper roadster come with a stack of paperwork, its sale also includes a pile of accessories. Documentation consists of the copy of the original window sticker outlined above, the car’s original owner’s manual and warranty booklets, service and inspection records, a vehicle summary report, and a 2001 Viper factory service manual. The extra parts consist of a front end protector (bra) that has never been installed, a Snake Oyl aluminum skid plate that has never been installed, an extra factory rear window and window seal, the car’s original exhaust system and a high quality car cover.

Over the years, the Viper matured and softened to better capture a wider audience. Whether that was the right move on Chrysler’s part is a subject of much debate, but it doesn’t change the fact that cars like this 2001 RT/10 are about as much fun as you can have on four wheels! I can’t think of many ‘grown up’ toys that are better suited to the job of simply making the driver smile; and putting a toy like this in your garage is about the most fun you’ll ever have investing in your future. Don’t miss this excellent opportunity to ink a deal on a car that, even ten years off the showroom floor, is one of the fastest and most exclusive machines on the road!
