Available* at Scottsdale 2018 – Lot #1016, 1 of 19, RARE, Carroll-Shelby Limited Edition, One Owner
Lot #1016 – This Viper roadster bares Shelby’s handiwork from nose to tail. Modifications include an open Cobra-style front grille reminiscent of the classic roadster, a rear contour spoiler, a striped composite hardtop, and front and rear custom Carroll Shelby emblems. In keeping with the Shelbys of old, it was finished in Wimbledon White with Guardsman Blue stripes, and has a custom black interior with full leather seats embroidered with the Carroll Shelby logo in blue and white. Some of the finer touches include custom-engineered wheels with a Shelby center-cap logo, custom windshield graphics, a 4-point street legal harnesses on both seats, Shelby-signed leather steering wheel and an upgraded alarm system. An engraved data plate was installed under the hood, and Carroll Shelby personally hand-signed and numbered the glovebox. Powered by an 8.0-liter, 10-cylinder engine and a 6-speed manual transmission, the Viper roadster gets a performance boost with an improved rear-axle gear ratio, free-flow air cleaner and exhaust and high-performance ignition wires, all kept in line with a heavy-duty suspension. It comes with a letter of authenticity and a photo log of the car’s conversion signed by Fitzgerald Motorsports and Carroll Shelby. Fitzgerald Motorsports was the only dealer authorized to build the Shelby Viper roadsters, and only 19 were built.
