The Pacifica Prototype Viper was a 9/10 scale model built by the Pacifica Design Studio. It was a “Plan-B Viper” – built as a backup plan. If Dodge couldn’t produce the V10 Viper in time or without going over budget, then Dodge would have resorted to building a smaller, V8-powered car similar to this one. The car looks very similar to the 1989 Show Car, but had different headlights, cloth seats, and different rear-view mirrors. (Source: jbisanz)Continue Reading

This is the ’91 Indy Pace Car backup car. It was displayed inside an infield tent before the Indy 500 race. As a precaution, just before the race, it was taken to the pits as the back-up pace car. (Source: viperjay)
Dodge Viper Gen 5 clay model wrapped in DI-NOC film.
Interesting pre-production version of Viper. It looks similar to VM-02 concept, but has already another (as in production) head and fog lights, wheels, front bumper and mirrors. Only one photo of this known. But it is not real pace car of 1991 Indy 500.

Lee Iacocca was a real comedian.
Many people know that it was entrusted to Lamborghini experts to bring to mind the truck engine to put it on the 1992 Viper. I didn’t think much why. It turns out that Lamborghini belonged to Chrysler from 1987 to 1994. The Viper engine was the largest mounted on a passenger car and held that record until the Bugatti Veyron appeared.
In the photo, instead of the production model of the Viper, the 1989 prototype.
