Cars to Drive in a Lifetime: Dodge Viper GT2 Edition

Launched in the 1990s, the Viper GT2 Edition was an instant success. It boasted 400 horsepower, a great roadster body with sidepipes and a lot of other alluring features. In 1992 a GTS coupe version followed and people loved it just as much as they loved the open-top version. This baby even got a racing variant, called the GTS-R, and won the European FIA GT2 championship in 1997. After this important event, Dodge created a limited edition street version of the racer to celebrate the big win. Only 100 units were produced and they all boasted 460 hp.

They flaunted a special blue and white body color, strong brakes (even without ABS), quick steering and a furious 8.0-liter V-10 engine. A little over 4 seconds were enough  for the GT2 to go from 0 to 60 mph before reaching a top speed of 185 mph. Priced at $75,000, each unit came with its own serial number and certificate, among other personalization features.

  • Soundtrack: “The Whipper” by Viper
  • Claim to Fame: Made to commemorate Viper’s first major championship win.
  • Ideal Passenger: Tom Gale, the chief of design who contributed to the creation of this beauty.
  • Where to Drive It: On the track which brought the GTS-R its famous win in 1997: Hockenheim in Germany.
  • Did You Know? This was not the only special edition Viper that year. There was also the ACR (American Club Racer).
