Sold mine 10 days ago as well frown It went to a really nice guy in Hungary. I don't think prices went up really....just the asking ones but doubt there is much interest at these levels.

The only Viper I know of that is holding its price or going up slightly is the 1999 GT2!

Are you really saying that the rest are going down?

You are extremely wrong, I mean that in the politest way possible but I do mean it.

Gen 1and 2 cars in the U.K. have only gone up in the past 24 months.

It's only a matter of time really, this surely is the end of the viper with global restrictions on cars like the viper. Cars with character like a viper are in short supply, and with the growing trend of moving to automatic, small engines using turbochargers the market on 'drivers' cars is growing.

For what has been shunned for appearing crude and cheap by comparison to European standards, will eventually be more desirable for its merits. Manual, big block, naturally aspirated, real driver input no computer doing it all for you, rear wheel drive. Give it another few years and people will be raving about the viper as much as they are now praising the acr track records.

Have to agree, the 1999 GT2 is a Very rare car indeed!

But you can't say a regular Gen2 GTS has not also gained some value.
Many changed hands in the UK at low 30's then high 30's and now I challenge anyone to find one below 40 grand.
Good late models can even hit 50.
I held out for almost a year to try and find a red GTS in the 40s and failed.

If you want to see changing values of Vipers, here is a chart of my 1997 GTS value from Hagerty web site:



Chart is in USA dollars (sorry - I'm from the States)

This French 1998 GTS is for sale at £65900.

With car numbers reducing it seems increasingly difficult to ascertain realistic market values.

Stripes go through the rear number plate - means its a '96 (unless its a '97 that has been adjusted).

No black in the bottom of the rear bumper recesses either, Don't recall this being another 96 feature like the number plate, so my vote is adjusted, in which case it could be any year.

Don't know again, fog light covers put it back to 96-97, wonder if it passes the stripe edge test.

Ultimately the person spending the money dictates the price....disappointing if you are trying to sell at a speculative price!?

Very disappointing to see no real gains over the last few years.

i wouldn't judge prices on auction sales, I don't think they are at a point of collectors supply and demand yet to command the best price at auction. Auction for vipers is still a way to get shot quick, not get the best price through patience and finding the right buyer.

IMHO that is a great price for an 2000 RT viper at auction.

“Buyer’s Premium” means the amount payable by the Buyer to SAL equal to 13.5%+VAT of the Hammer Price on Motor Vehicles"

so that's an extra £4617 - total £33117

.....or am I reading it wrong?
