SRT Viper GTS ’02

I made this tune to honor the first Viper’s ever made that have been crushed. If you didn’t hear Chrysler has ordered 93 original Dodge Vipers to be destroyed. This is including a rare blue 1992 Viper pre-production unit with VIN #004. Yes, that means the 4th Viper ever built. It’s a total of about $250,000. Chrysler said it’s lawyers basically said they have to crush them in order to avoid any future lawsuits. The cars were not meant to be street-legal originally as they were on loan to schools around the US and if anyone got into an accident in one Chrysler would be held liable. Obviously to avoid a lawsuit or any automobile insurance problems they had to crush them all. I get why the lawyers said it’s better to crush them, but it’s still sad to see them go. Not sure why they couldn’t of at least kept the real early ones and put them in a museum? I’m sure the insurance quotes for a rare Dodge Viper not moving wouldn’t be that expensive. Below is a video of one of them being destroyed.

This GT6 Viper is also probably not street legal as it has so many race mods done to it, but luckily there are no insurance companies or lawyers to care. I decided to not go full out with a wing and make it into a race car to keep the stock image. It drives great and can go over 230mph easily, but don’t be fooled it still has some bite left in it. Watch your gas coming out of the corners.
