JOHN ELWAY'S 1992 DODGE VIPER RT/10 ROADSTER - RESERVE
Chrysler began talks in 1988 about introducing a “Cobra-esque” roadster to their lineup. Designers and engineers would use the latest of modern engine technology, but the Viper would not be a gadget-laden, high-tech wonder. It would take a mechanically pure approach with one goal: unfiltered communication between driver, car and road. In late 1991, three years after the initial production meeting, the Viper RT/10 Roadster – offered only in Viper Red with a gray interior – rolled off the assembly line. This 1992 Dodge Viper is powered by an 8.0-liter V10 engine pumping out 400hp. The 6-speed manual transmission gives an experienced driver absolute control over its raw power. This Viper has had one private owner: former Denver Broncos quarterback and current general manager/president, John Elway. Mr. Elway purchased this Viper the first year the vehicle was released. Only 285 1992 Dodge Vipers were made, and this one’s VIN ends in 45. Until recently, this Viper has been stored at the showroom and maintained at John Elway's dealership in Greeley, CO. Over the years, the Dodge Viper has inspired feelings of adrenaline, envy, admiration and pure driving enjoyment. Showing just under 8,000 actual miles, this Viper with a notable ownership history is a must-own for any speed junkie.
