After 25 years of production, the iconic Dodge Viper was discontinued after the 2017 model year. Since then, we have seen the public’s love for the Viper continue with various versions of the iconic sports car going for record amounts. But in recent days, one particular model has been catching a lot of attention on Facebook marketplace.
This 1996 Dodge Viper R/T10 isn’t your typical first-generation (GEN I) Viper. Instead, it has been converted into a limo capable of carrying up to 12 passengers (although the car only has safety belts for 10) in open-air comfort. But like the GEN I cars before it, it is only an open-air roadster. So don’t expect the car to be really for year-round cruising.
Unlike other Vipers, the legendary 8.0-liter (488 cubic-inch) VIPER V-10 has been replaced by a 5.9-liter (360 cubic-inch) MAGNUM V-8 delivering 390 horsepower. Gone is the beloved 6-speed manual transmission, in favor of a more effortless automatic setup.
So what do you do with an open-air 10-passenger Viper R/T10? The seller suggests it could be used as a rolling advertisement for a business, a parade vehicle, or for special occasions like weddings or prom.
Painted in the beautiful Stone White (PW7) with Blue stripes scheme, the combination was one of three color combinations available in 1996.
With an asking price of $160,000, this Viper limo is one expensive play toy. Keep in mind, that this exact car appeared on eBay! last year, with a starting bid of $135,000, and now is back on the market with an even higher asking price.
Currently, the car just has a tick under 6,500 miles on the odometer. We take it that the mileage is for the chassis and not the engine.
Nevertheless, if you have deep enough pockets and looking to catch some attention. This might be the car for you.
