EVALUATION : Original | 6500 miles. From the collection of Lee Iacocca, who owned it from new. Even more important, it’s the first production Viper. It could use detailing but otherwise is like new.
BOTTOM LINE : This sale generated tons of buzz in mainstream media. And no wonder: It brought more than twice Bonhams’s presale estimate and set a record for RT/10s. But it wasn’t the only Viper to do well in Scottsdale. Early RT/10s in excellent condition, excluding this one, brought nearly 40 percent above expected results based on Hagerty Price Guide values; RM sold a 101-mile 2002 ACR for six figures. For anybody who doesn’t think of these wild, bare-bones two-seaters as collector cars, Scottsdale 2020 should convince them otherwise.
