Location: Garner, North Carolina


This 2005 Dodge Viper Competition Coupe is chassis #53 and was originally campaigned by Tim Wiens of 3R Racing. It was purchased in 2011 from the Viper Exchange by the selling dealer’s friend, who achieved multiple class and championship wins and was awarded Rookie of the Year in the NAARA race series. The seller acquired the car nearly a year ago, and he has driven it at multiple HPDE track days. The Dodge Motorsports 8.3-liter V-10 was rebuilt with 2010 model-year heads, and approximately 30 race hours have since been added. A Tremec 6060 6-speed manual transmission from a 2010 Viper was installed and features modified 5th and 6th gears. Other upgrades include a Brembo big brake kit, Moton shocks, upgraded axles and driveshaft, on-board pneumatic jacks, a Motec digital instrument cluster, and more. This Viper is claimed to be multi-class eligible in GT1 or GTU depending on setup, and it is now being offered on a bill of sale in North Carolina.

This Competition Coupe features 2005-spec bodywork, including the prominent rear wing. Additional alterations were made to participate in the 2006 World Challenge series. The Moton shocks were reportedly developed on a seven-post shake rig and cost $12k. An ARB adjustable sway bar is equipped, and a $10k Brembo big brake kit provides increased stopping power.

The seller states that to his knowledge this car has not been involved in any accidents, and that it retains original bodywork and finish. On-board pneumatic jacks are fitted, while the larger axles and drive shaft aid in putting power down.

The interior features a Racetech seat for the driver and a Cobra unit for the passenger, along with Teamtech harnesses. Window webbing has been added for safety.

Other interior features include an integrated roll cage, fire suppression bottles, and a Motec digital instrument display. The Tremec 6060 transmission features a short shift kit and has been fitted with modified 5th and 6th gears to keep revs in the power band on track.

The 8.3-liter V-10 was rebuilt approximately 30 race hours ago and fitted with upgraded heads from a 2010 model-year car. The engine does not utilize restrictor plates and features a large aluminum radiator along with redesigned fuel cells for better pick up. The most recent oil change was completed two hours ago, and the seller states that the car is ready to be campaigned immediately.
