    Default Want to buy the Viper DEFENDER?

    Remember the TV show Viper? The car is for sale for anyone interested. Doesn't have a V10, but a V8. Top bid was $174k, reserve not met. Why would anybody bid that much? Must be a HUGE fan of the show

    Maybe he couldn't stand having a car out there representing Viperdom with a V8 in it, and wanted to put the universe back into harmony by installing a proper V10 ?

    My understanding was that Dodge insisted all three Defenders
    and both RT mules were to be crushed after production.

    There have been a couple of Defender replicas made by the
    company that original designed them, but there were never
    on screen. If you are interested in bidding I would advise
    a DETAILED background on both the car and seller - buyer
    beware.

    without a V10, it isn't a Viper.

    This Show made me a Viperholic, It taught me how to drive, It brought me into American cars. I just loved the sound the Viper made in the show... just to grow up and finding out its not a Viper sound

    Still, Loved that metal burping sound -V-

    Strictly speaking only a few body panels and wheels were
    "Viper" on the Defender. It was a Ford chassis modified for
    stunt work and easy on-site repairs.
