I bought the 97 GTS in 2001, it was my 2nd Viper. I had a 94 R/T10 previously. The car is a blast to drive and draws attention almost everywhere I take it.
Like all Vipers it has a 488 cubic inch V10. It was factory rated at 450 hp.
It pulled 423 rear wheel hp on the dyno stock.
It has 3 inch cats and a 3 inch exhaust with Magnaflow mufflers. It has a BTR Nitrous system that kicked the horsepower up to 570 rear wheel hp. It has a short throw shifter installed. The car has been lowered 1 inch.
The Silver Stripes are custom, they are wider than the normal stock ones and have a pinstripe at the edges.
It runs 12.0's on just the motor and the best on the bottle is 10.71 @130 mph so far. The fastest top speed I've had it so far is 160 mph (on motor only). There are so few places anymore that you can really open a car up and see wht it will top out at.
Vipers pretty much come standard with everything that's on mine. The only choice you had was color.
BTR Nitrous system, 3 inch exhaust, short throw shifter.
