Could this be your dream come true?
Many people understandably dream of owning a Dodge Viper. The American sports cars aren't exactly cheap, however, so they remain inaccessible to the average enthusiast. There's a golden opportunity to get one for far less than what it's normally sold for, but it caught fire, so that's the catch.

This Dodge Viper GTS, listed on Copart in Ham Lake, Minnesota, in 2001, is attracting great interest. The car is currently up for auction without reservation and has a current bid of $ 15,900 at the time of this writing.
That seems like a bargain as this snake doesn't seem to have as much fire damage as the first photo suggests. Yes, the hood, front bumper, and headlights look nice. The windshield and roof appear to be at least in a somewhat rough condition. Peeling paint on the tall rear wing, rear fenders, and rear bumper seems to suggest that the fire kissed at least that part of the car.
However, a photograph of the Viper GTS interior shows no signs of fire or smoke damage. That means, whatever the cause of the fire, no one in the car was in immediate danger. Since this trip shows less than 36,000 miles on the clock, the cabin is in excellent condition.
This would then lead you to suspect an engine fire, but the under-hood shot doesn't seem to support that theory. Instead of burned-out parts in a terrible photo, the engine bay looks relatively untouched. That doesn't mean you can expect the V10 to just boot up and be ready to pound up Corvettes, but we're not sure it's not in perfect condition. The estimated retail value of $ 49,950 suggests that it is, but we are not saying it is.
In other words, this mysterious 2001 Dodge Viper GTS is a gamble for anyone who places the winning bid. It's either an amazing investment or a huge mistake. Are you ready to roll the dice?
