We'd still drive it to a prom night
The Dodge Viper is seen as a modern American supercar and has a massive following around the world. Not only is this car a good looker, but it is also a performance powerhouse that has competed in numerous international racing events. We have seen these cars being modified to the extremes, both in terms of horsepower outputs, and in terms of body modification, but we've never seen something like this. There is innate darkness in the hearts and minds of men that lead to creations like this. We've seen it being done to a Ferrari 360 Modena and even a Learjet, but we'll never get over how sad it is to see a sports car getting tuned into a limo.
This 1996 Viper RT/10 limousine conversion looks as weird as it sounds, and was recently listed on eBay, but failed to sell for unknown reasons. The front-end of this car looks totally normal: you get the famous first-gen Viper grin, complete with bulging hood, front windscreen and side mirrors. Even the doors look standard, but after that, it's just miles and miles of body before you get to a stock-looking rear-end. An interesting build feature is the fact that there are two rollover hoops. Those sitting in the mid-section of this abomination are out of luck: if this thing flips, they're screwed. The eBay ad describes the car as a 25-foot long, 12 seater limo. The car is painted in the classic Dodge VIPER Anniversary colours of White and Navy and features a gray leather interior.
According to the seller, this Viper has been featured in numerous TV shows, commercials and special events, which could explain the eye-watering asking price of $135,000. This Viper has only 5,900 miles on the clock, and still runs the standard 8.0-liter V10 engine. The second-generation Viper was introduced in 1996 and ended production in 2002. The SR 2 produced 415 horsepower and 488 lb-ft of torque. The original car could sprint to 60 mph in the mid four-second range. This shameful piece of automotive crime can't match that, but it can hold tons more chicks in bikinis, and that's always a win.
