"There's no replacement for cubic inches" is an old American motoring motto. With its 8 litre V10 engine the Viper definitely fits the bill.
US car giant Chrysler first entered the spectacular coupe via its Dodge brand in 1996.The GTS-R had been developed by a small engineering team in merely 9 months to be ready for the start in the GT 1 class.
Unfortunately arrival of the new mid engined European GT1's had shifted the goal posts. Even with 600+bhp on tap, the front engined Dodge was simply out classed.

In 97 the Viper was back, although now as a Chrysler and (more realistically) in GT-2. At Le Mans the step down in class did not result in the expected step up on the podium, but in the FIA GT the GTS-R scored its first title. The following 3 seasons Vipers reigned supreme scoring podium finishes in almost all GT races on both sides of the Atlantic.
