Good thread, as a buyer the lack of resale is a concern. Maybe it shouldn't be if I really want the car, but as I've got older and change more frequently, it is a factor.

The lack of interior embellishments is not so much of a concern, but it would be a weighted factor and something I'd be more prepared to overlook if it contributed to a weight advantage, alas it appears it does not.

The main appealing factor is it's styling. Nothing comes close, I don't think there is any other car that looks quite like it, it stirs the soul. I will really know I want one when I drive one, it must be quite an event.

I would definitely be looking for a modded example. Better brakes, lowered (standard seems to ride very high), good tyres and extra power. These engines seem very low stressed so power should be relatively easy to come by and in this day and age a family hatchback can make 400hp in a lighter package. Around 600hp would be nice, though I'd like it to stay NA.

This one,









Those CCW Classic wheels have now been sold.
The car represents the 1997 64 Chamberlain Engineering Chrysler Viper GTS-R: Driven by Jari Nurminen, Hans Hugenholtz, Chris Gleason at Le mans.

The vinyl 3m graphics could be easily removed if its not your cup of tea wink The car has many mods to the brakes and running gear which are all + points if you actually want to drive the car rather than keeping it in storage. The rear wing is fairly recent and is the prefered Autoform Le-mans wing, (not cheap), Custom exhaust system which could be repacked to allow use of the car on British tracks.

If your a serious buyer you might want to contact charlie

I have the advert saved from carandclassics. Will call him when i get back to the UK around Feb/March time as it has only been up since November. The way these cars sell there's a good chance it will still be up, but if not, then it's not to be. This is actually quite a concern tbh, which I find very unusual given their rarity and appearance. I've resolved to the fact that i'm going to drive before i buy this time.

Not much info to go on, but given the price must be a much needed quick sale. Would have thought it should start with a 3 not 2.

At the time the Gen 1 RT/10 was the Axe Murderer on the block. Not much came close to it in 1992.

Being honest, when you look up close to to them it is a no frills car compared to new cars now, but actually driving one takes you to a whole different level. Simply brilliant fun and Everyone will look at you and smile.
Yes I do believe that is the correct price advertised and if you have the cash I would snap it up and keep it bone stock. In the USA these Gen 1s are now starting to move up in value, and in a couple of years I can see the same thing happening here. The French seem also to love RT/10s and there are many there for sale compared to the GTS coupe.
Head Gaskets are an issue on Gen 1s and will require changing, but apart from that its all pretty good.
17" Tyres are a bit of an issue to get hold of but every now and again the manufactures do make new batches.

I was over in italy recently and there was a 1994 RT/10 for sale there



Me out with my mates in early 2000s We turned a few heads smile

To be honest Nick, I only watch the Gen 1-II stuff. There was a Blue / White First edition Gen IV listed on the Mecum Auction site that sold but Unless you log onto the Auction site it will not tell you what it sold for.

Try asking on the other site wink
Knowing that you wish to sell yours, there was a couple of people I was talking to at the Supercars of Essex meets,
You might want to reach out to Ryan and he can add you to his list

Thanks for the info Mark, its easy to log in, I just filled in the form and I'm instantly able to see the prices. I always thought the B/W GTS's would be first to go north in price, followed by other GTS's and early RT10's, probably red ones like the iconic poster cars.

I guess it will be a while before gen 3 prices to go up, as most will want the gen 4 with the extra power and improvements, obviously ACR's will be the most sought after.

I believe this to be Dave Whites old car, what's going on with the stripes? Is that a painted extra white pinstripe either side of the main stripe or a taped on one? I was speaking to the owner at the London Classic Car show. This car was positioned centrally on the roundabout at the entrance to the Silverstone Classic

Mark, Dave added those with the help of Pete I seem to recall, they documented it on here. They are just vinyl I believe.
