Super rare example enhanced by U.S tuners Hennessey to 600 Venom spec boasting a claimed 600Bhp from its 8.0 V10 engine - Mega!! That a major US manufacturer could come up with such an exciting concept car was startling enough but Chrysler's decision to put the Viper into production was nothing short of astonishing. Inspired, as its name suggests, by the legendary Cobra, Tom Gale's design study made its motor show debut in 1989 following discussions between Chrysler boss Bob Lutz and Cobra-creator Carroll Shelby; its appearance triggering an avalanche of deposit cheques. Without doubt, a large part of the Viper's 'back to basics' appeal stems from its unique selling point: a massively powerful eight-litre, V10 engine!! This particular example looks to have been breathed on in the States by Hennessey Performance of Houston, Texas, and proudly wears their plaque inside the snug cockpit suggesting the car to have been tuned to ‘Venom 600’ spec Serial No. 019 suggesting the car to put out 600Bhp!! Other noteworthy features include Koni suspension, newly fitted twin 8'' Venom stripes and also freshly glossed black alloys / slot-in windows and clip-on hardtop. A rare opportunity to purchase a real 1990's supercar...with only 67,000 miles covered from new!!...
