This stunning Dodge Viper is an ode to American performance.
In the performance car world, the United States is often the underdog, with some of the world’s most desirable and celebrated supercars and sports cars originating in Germany, Italy, or France. While those countries are all known for their incredible innovation, engineering, and design, the United States has continued to prove itself as a worthy purveyor of performance, with many cars breaking boundaries and changing the perception of American cars when it comes to performance.
One of the greatest American performance cars ever is the Dodge Viper, which is one of the few cars in the world to boast a V10 engine, and combined that unorthodox 8-liter powertrain with inspiration from the Shelby Cobra to create one of the world’s most iconic performance cars. However, the Dodge Viper truly got its chance to shine on the race track, with racing versions of the car forging an unforgettable legacy, and this 2000 Dodge Viper GTS Ex-Works/Team ORECA is one of the greatest.
It has a list of accomplishments achieved on some of motorsport’s most important stages, like placing 7th in its class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the 12 Hours of Sebring, as well as plenty of American Le Mans Series race wins and the season win in 2000. This Dodge Viper transcends being simply an excellent performance car or race car and is also a piece of motorsport and automotive history, a proud one for the American automotive industry and proof of its performance prowess.
