As far as limo conversions go, this has got to be one of the weirdest we’ve ever seen. What you see here is a 1996 Dodge Viper RT/10 that has had its rear lengthened approximately two car lengths, with an all-new cabin section added to accommodate an additional 12 passengers. For sale on eBay right now, it’s apparently the only one of its kind.
The front third of this Viper looks completely normal, with a standard front end, doors and cabin. It’s only when you venture beyond the rear bulkhead that things get weird. The new cabin, also without a roof, appears to be finished in black leather and has two bucket seats in the back. There’s even another roll bar structure to keep the proportions in check. The rear is a pure Viper, with a standard trunk, taillights and bumper.
The seller doesn’t reveal who built this 25ft Viper, but says it was used for “numerous TV shows, commercials and special events.” Whoever performed this build did a pretty decent job, judging by the few photos included in the listing. It’s hard to make a car like this look factory-like, obviously, but the closed lines look even, and there’s nothing falling apart (which we can see, anyway ). It’s unclear if any modifications were made to the 8.0-liter V-10 to offset the added weight, but the car has only done 5,900 miles since new, according to the ad.
If you think you can make good use of this Viper limo, you’re going to need some deep pockets. The seller has it listed for sale on eBay right now with an opening bid of $135,000 and 11 hours remaining. Considering that a normal Viper of this vintage costs about $100,000 less and probably rides better, we can see why no one has made an offer yet.
