The Dodge Viper was launched in 1991, used as the pace cars for Indianapolis 500 with the first production model available in 1992. Built in composite with a tubular steel chassis the centrepiece of the car was its engine. The Lamborghini Company, then owned by Chrysler Corporation, designed the V10 for the Viper by recasting the block and heads in an aluminium alloy, and was based off Chrysler's V8 engine. A major contributor to the Viper since the beginning was Dick Winkles, the chief power engineer, who had spent a lot of time in Italy. Our example for sale is the first UK demonstrator registration A1 8 LTR and featured in all of the press reviews and UK marketing during the launch. Our good friend and MD of Chrysler UK at the time ran this car in personally and knows it very well, helping us shed light on its specification which includes a Hennessey aero kit and forced induction meaning the horse power is up to 450. Also with the car is a full hardtop/widows kit and straight through exhausts which are not for the faint hearted! A good opportunity to purchase a piece of UK performance car motoring history at a reasonable price.
