V is for Voluptuous: 1999 Dodge Viper RT/10

V is for vicious.  V is for viagra, V10 and vindication -- it is not for Wagner, so why would you pose a ballet dancer in front of your Viper?  These two things are just about as polar opposite as you can get -- the brutish and curvaceous Viper versus the lithe and flexible dancer.  This is just another divergent chapter in the unwritten exposé -- The Girls of eBay Motors.  Find this 1999 Dodge Viper RT/10 offered for $33,999 buy-it-now on ebay.


A ballet dancer is so totally wrong as an analogy for Dodge's Viper.  A salsa dancer would be far more apropos -- curvaceous hips, flashy colors, rear end sliding all over the place -- this is what it means to be a Viper.  Except that the ballet dancer in this photo is wearing what appear to be combat boots.  Perhaps this is right for the Viper...?


The RT/10 is powered by a monster redesigned truck engine -- an 8.0 liter V10 pushing out 450 horsepower and a billion foot-lbs of torque.  The V10 can propel the composite bodied Viper from zero to 60mph in a hair under 4 seconds without the use of traction control, launch control or overhead camshafts.


Sure, this costs a lot of money -- you want a cheap Viper, you need to find one that has been in a crash...like this one.  If it's gone, just wait 10 minutes, another crashed Viper will be on ebay.
