Autotrader Find: 1997 Dodge Viper GTS Race Car

If you’re looking for a Dodge Viper but standard models just won’t cut it for you, you might want to consider this one. This is a 1997 Dodge Viper GTS that’s been converted into a race car — complete with a lot of race car modifications — and now it can be yours, as it’s listed for sale on Autotrader.

According to the ad, this Viper GTS gained its "race car" status shortly after it was sold back in 1997, and it participated in several SCCA racing events at the time. While it still uses the factory 8-liter V10, its upgrades include custom lightweight doors, a lift-off fiberglass hood, aftermarket headers, improved brakes, a roll cage and safety harnesses.

There are other upgrades too, like VDO racing gauges, a detachable steering wheel and racing seats. Whether or not the vehicle is street legal is probably a question for your local DMV, but the thing is certainly ready for the track.

If you’re interested in a Viper that’s even more insane than a regular model, this one is offered by IDrive1 Motorcars in Carrollton, Texas, near Dallas, for $39,977. It’s covered just 10,200 miles from new, and it’s ready to get back on the track. Find a Dodge Viper for sale
