floating front and rear calipers, ASR traction control, stability control, limited slip differential, ESP compares

the driver's intended course, via steering & braking inputs, to the vehicle's response, via lateral acceleration,

rotation (yaw) and individual wheel speeds, ESP then brakes individual front or rear wheels and/or reduces

excess engine power as needed to help correct understeer (plowing) or oversteer (fishtailing), ESP incor-

porates the functions of ASR traction control, which senses drive-wheel slip and individually brakes the

slipping wheel or wheels, and/or reduces excess engine power, until control is regained, (SBC) Electronic

Ownership Timeline:


10/18/2012 - purchased by first owner in Evansville, IN and registered in Evansville, IN
10/20/2018 - vehicle offered for sale by Buxton Motorsports in Evansville, IN

History of service:


08/30/2012 - trunk weather stripping replaced @ 4,719 miles
12/30/2014 - maintenance inspection completed incl. oil change @ 5,572 miles
07/28/2015 - maintenance inspection completed incl. oil change, new battery and wiring harness for trickle charger @ 5,669 miles
08/14/2018 - maintenance inspection completed and clutch master cylinder replaced @ 5,999 miles

Picks:  This Viper is in exceptionally nice condition inside and out and is as nice as a pre-owned car gets, the

paint & body are like new with no faults to mention, the interior and carpeting show like new, as do the seats

and glass.  There are no cracks in the dash, the engine compartment is highly detailed to like new and the rims

are unmarked.  As a 1-owner vehicle since new it has obviously been very well maintained as well as garage

kept since new.  The tires have deep tread and the service is up to date.  There are no open recalls.  If I had to

nitpick something it would be that replacing the front carpeted mats would really freshen the interior, and there

is a very small mark on the exterior driver seat bolster.  Other than that the car is like new inside and out.

Nothing else to reasonably fault, the full set of photos shows the condition, so please request and review them.
