Let's just go ahead and just end the debate: There's still nothing on the road today that can compare to an early Viper in terms of sheer audaciousness. An 8-liter V10, six gears, and no windows or roof? No other car in recent memory has such a single-minded purpose, and seeing one on the road, even over two decades after their debut, is still a special occasion. That's why we were so happy to see this extremely low mileage '93 Viper RT-10 roll under our showroom lights.
With only 895 produced in '93, this Viper RT-10 truly is a rare modern day classic. However, you would be hard pressed to find another with fewer miles. This Viper has only been enjoyed sparingly and displays only 1,719 miles over 20 years after it left Detroit.
What can you say about a car that is virtually new? The paint is as good as factory paint got in 1993, and on the Vipers, it seems Chrysler went the extra mile to make it look spectacular. The paint is deep and glossy, and the Viper's body panels look fantastic.. Glass, emblems, lenses and everything else on the exterior of this car is similarly well preserved. It also includes the optional matching hardtop and side curtains, which have look good as new. Are you getting the picture here? This is a showroom fresh new 1993 Dodge Viper.
The engine under this cars massive hood needs no introduction. Displacing a massive 8.0 liters and turning a stout 9.1 to 1 compression ratio into 400 horsepower at 4,600RPMS and 450 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. The bright red intake manifold, the cast aluminum valve covers with the Viper logo, dual throttle bodies all add up to something that's just made to show off. 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 the ZR1. 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.
Underneath the car, you'll find a spotless chassis, that's complete with a 6-speed manual transmission that sends power to a limited slip differential with 3.07 gears. The combination of the three is able to push the Viper to nearly sub 13 second quarter mile time of 13.1 @ 108mph. However the independent front and rear suspension also impressed critics when it was first unveiled and meant that on a skid pad the Viper was able to push to nearly a 1 full G. At the corners of the car, power four wheel disc brakes, which come equipped with dual piston calipers and 13 inch rotors. And keeping all this thoroughbred hardware rolling down the road is a handsome set of the original 17” Viper alloy rims which wear wide Michelin rubber.
If you can't tell by now, the early Vipers were built in such a way that places an emphasis on simplicity and performance above all else. Swing open the doors and you'll see a black and silver two-tone leather interior, which much like the rest of the car, appears to have never seen any drive time. The seats, wrap great looking perforated leather around molds that are designed to keep you in place during the most spirited driving; and are probably even suitable for track duty. Between those seats, an industrial console, props a 6-speed shifter between a simple emergency brake handle. At the front of the car, white-faced gauges, which include a 180 MPH speedometer, keep an eye on the big engine's vitals. And in front of the driver, a leather wrapped steering wheel that is branded with the Viper logo. At the center of the dash, a horizontal row of auxiliary gauges is the coolest arrangement since the '69 Camaro and its console-mounted units. Air conditioning wasn't an option in '93 because let's face it, air conditioning robs horsepower. Everything inside this cockpit, from the tilt steering wheel to the courtesy lamps, functions properly and looks great.
The sale of this wonderfully preserved Viper includes the original owner's manual, wheel cap removal tool, and removable soft top.
It's hard to believe that this Viper could be purchased in '93 and then be driven less than 2,000 miles. How can someone show that much self control? It's clear when looking over every aspect of the viper that its previous owner was extremely meticulous and cared for this Viper as if it was their child. There's really no wrong answer for what to do with this Viper once you purchase it: Treat it as an investment and double your money in 20 years, or unleash those 400 horses from under the hood and be transplanted back to the early 90's. Whatever your plan is, this Viper will not disappoint.
