GALLERY: Go Behind The Scenes On Our 1997 Dodge Viper GTS Film Shoot
According to Dodge, the 1997 Viper GTS was the more civilized version of the infamous Viper RT/10 Roadster that came just before it. Of course, civility meant things like door handles and windows, hardly the levels of luxury one was accustomed to at the time. After all, this was the year of Titanic with Leo and the first Harry Potter book—two things that shared nothing in common with this machine. It weighed barely more than a Porsche 911 Turbo but had a V10 stuffed in it. In 1997, this was as raw as it got.
