Second-Generation Dodge Viper R/T10 Crashes While Attempting To Race An Acura Integra!

And Yes, It Happened While Leaving A Car Meet...

With the weather getting warmer, cars meets are starting to pop up across the country. While most car events were canceled over the past two years due to the pandemic, people are more eager than ever to get together and embrace car culture. Some a little more than others.

Those in attendance at the GEM Autofinish Drive-In & Car Meet on Sunday, in Dayton, Ohio, witnessed one second-generation (GEN II) Dodge Viper R/T10 owner destroy the entire front end of his car after attempting to race an Acura Integra of all things.

The early Vipers are known for being a handful when putting the power down, and it appears to have gotten away from this driver. As soon as the Viper passes the Acura, the car just completely veered to the right without hesitation and jumped the curb which caused it to collide with a light pole in a parking lot of a nearby business.

While we don’t know a lot of details of what happened after the incident, we can see that the driver appeared to be okay, but shaken. Luckily, it appears that no one was where the car ended up and/or injured. 

When it comes to driver aids for the Viper, Dodge did equip the GEN II Vipers with an anti-lock brake system (ABS) in 2001. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Traction Control (TC) were not installed on the Viper until the appearance of the fifth generation (GEN V) in 2013

As prices continue to soar for GEN II Vipers, we are sure this owner regrets he decided to race a clapped-out Acura. 

We hope all of you reading this, don’t make the same mistakes and obey your local driving laws and save the racing for the track. You can see the entire video for yourself on the Tuned2Go YouTube channel, by clicking here.
