Although the 1996 example class is the start of the endorsement genesis, in the Viper community, the 96 RT/10 is sometimes referred to as contemporaries 1.5 since it saw the carryover of many multiplication 1 parts during the exemplar twelvemonth patch transitioning to propagation 2 parts. The buggy resettled the open english expel pipes to a ace silencer at the back exiting via two expectant fundamental empennage pipes during the midsection of the framework class. Contrivance aforementioned the decreased rachis coerce increased the hp to 415 bhp (309 kW; 421 PS) for the 96 RT/10. Torsion would too increment by 23 lb·ft (31 N·m) to 488 lb·ft (662 N·m). A obliterable hardtop was now useable on with a sliding methamphetamine windowpane. About blade hanging components were replaced by aluminium, resulting in a 60 lb (27 kg) burthen reducing.

For 1999, the Viper standard 18 edge wheels, index position mirrors and a smattering of early inner upgrades.


In 2000, the Viper would no yearner bear bad pistons. For around enthusiasts of the endorsement multiplication Viper, this is a less worthy modelling class since it doesn’t suffer a bad drive care the 96-99 GTS models and does not bear ABS similar the 2001-2002 models.

2002 would be the concluding yr of the irregular propagation Viper. Scheme would anatomy 360 “Last Version” Vipers (326 coupes and 34 ACR editions) to mark the terminal twelvemonth.

Broad modifications included a reworked locomotive with higher index and less slant, an nigh wholly redesigned form that was made 60 lb (27 kg) flatboat and 25% stiffer in torsional rigidness done punctilious figurer psychoanalysis, a exhaustively redesigned dangling, and rock-bottom braking distances; the 1996 to 2002 Viper GTS had a light (roughly 650 lb (290 kg)) 450 bhp (340 kW) locomotive, which could dispatch the one-quarter mi in 12.3 seconds, 0.3 seconds and 6 mph (9.7 km/h) quicker than its forerunner, and increased top amphetamine by 11 mph (18 km/h) roughly. The revised hiatus, stiffer form, and sleek torso brocaded sidelong clench to 0.98 g (9.6 m/s²), although otc reports read the 1992 modeling with 1.0 g. Present-day tires get improved upon this bill importantly. Slalom runs could oft range or outstrip 70 mph (110 km/h). Brakes again lacked ABS initially, and proven to be the car’s weakest pointedness. The brakes scathe the car in legion comparability tests, such as a 1997 “supercar comparing” by Motive Drift, in which the Viper GTS situated at the top against cars such as the Ferrari 355, Chevrolet Corvette, Porsche 9-11 Turbo, Acura NSX-T, Mitsubishi 3000GT, and the Toyota Above altogether operation exercises exclude braking. The car not lonesome situated close, but had substantially thirster fillet distances than otc vehicles.
