V is for vicious. V is for viagra, V10 and vindication — it is not for Wagner, so why would you pose a ballet dancer in front of your Viper? These two things are just about as polar opposite as you can get — the brutish and curvaceous Viper versus the lithe and flexible dancer. This is just another divergent chapter in the unwritten exposé — The Girls of eBay Motors. Find this 1999 Dodge Viper RT/10 offered for $33,999 buy-it-now on ebay.
A ballet dancer is so totally wrong as an analogy for Dodge’s Viper. A salsa dancer would be far more apropos — curvaceous hips, flashy colors, rear end sliding all over the place — this is what it means to be a Viper. Except that the ballet dancer in this photo is wearing what appear to be combat boots. Perhaps this is right for the Viper…?
The RT/10 is powered by a monster redesigned truck engine — an 8.0 liter V10 pushing out 450 horsepower and a billion foot-lbs of torque. The V10 can propel the composite bodied Viper from zero to 60mph in a hair under 4 seconds without the use of traction control, launch control or overhead camshafts.
Sure, this costs a lot of money — you want a cheap Viper, you need to find one that has been in a crash…like this one. If it’s gone, just wait 10 minutes, another crashed Viper will be on ebay.
