Over the past several months, we have seen a number of Dodge Viper models going for record amounts on various auction sites. It proves that despite being absent from the market for five years, the love for the iconic nameplate is still there.
This beautiful fourth-generation (GEN IV) 2010 Dodge Viper SRT-10 Roadster was recently put up for auction on the popular online automotive bidding site, Bring A Trailer. Only 157 units of the Roadster were built in 2010, and this one is 1 of 7 Roadsters painted in this color combination for the year. But what really sets this GEN IV Roadster apart from the rest, is the fact it has 8 original miles on its odometer.
Originally delivered new to Empire Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep® in Wilkesboro, North Carolina, and remained with the first owner until August 2021 when it was acquired by the person who posted it on Bring A Trailer.
Under the hood, was an 8.4-liter “VIPER” V-10 rated from the factory at 600 horsepower and 560 lb-ft (759 N⋅m) of torque. It generated enough power to light up a small city. To control its massive output, the VIPER channeled everything through a ZF Sachs twin-disc clutch that reduced clutch-pedal effort and improved engagement. To unleash all of that force, a Tremec TR6060 heavy-duty, 6-speed manual transmission drove the car’s massive 335/30×19-inch rear tires.
The car is fitted with 275/35 front and 345/30 rear Michelin Pilot Sport tires showing 2009 date codes on “Six-Spoke” 18-inch x 19-inch forged aluminum wheels. A set of Brembo red four-piston brake calipers can be seen between the spokes.
Inside, the cabin featured bolstered bucket seats upholstered in black leather with suede microfiber inserts and Viper-logo backrest embroidery along with matching door panels and black carpeting. There were also power windows, an AM/FM/CD stereo head unit with navigation, a 7-speaker Alpine sound system with subwoofers, and power-adjustable. The steering wheel and seats even still had the factory plastic protective covers, still on them.
When the car was delivered, it has a total MSRP of $99,650 (that included $390 for destination charges and $1,700 for gas guzzler tax).
So with no reserve set, this GEN IV Dodge Viper SRT-10 Roadster ended up taking in an amazing $202,000 USD on April 6th, 2022. You can see the original auction page, on the Bring A Trailer site.
