Lot 187 - 2005 Dodge Ram SRT-10 Viper
|Odometer reading||72,000 miles|
|Estimate||£25,000 - £30,000|
This limited-edition sport pick-up was produced by Chrysler’s Performance Vehicle Operations Division and used extensive wind tunnel testing. The outrageous power comes from the 8.3 litre, V10 found in the third generation Dodge Viper and can propel this quad-cab example to nearly 150mph. The SRT-10 also had a unique hood that featured a wide power bulge and honeycomb grille scoop which allowed cool air to enter as well as forcing hot air to exit from the engine bay, thus helping the engine to run cooler. A body-colour aluminium tonneau cover with an aerodynamic spoiler came standard on the quad-cab alongside four-speed automatic transmission and the 22” polished aluminium wheels fitted with Pirelli Scorpion P305/40R-22 performance tyres modelled after the 10-spoke wheels available on the infamous Viper.
Imported directly into the UK in 2005 from the Kissimmee factory in the US, the servicing has been sporadic however we do have confirmation of a full service in 2010 and again in 2013. Indeed in 2011, all the wheels were removed, brakes inspected and new front pads fitted. Accompanying this extremely well-presented example is the owners pack complete with instruction manual and service book as well as two sets of keys. This rare and powerful pick-up will arrive in gleaming condition and an MoT test certificate valid until October this year.
