Competition Coupe 2001-2009

Photo by Kurt Wadsworth

Members of the Viper Club of America and Skip Thomas’ Viper Racing League (VRL) were pursuant enough for Dodge to create the Viper Competition Coupe which debuted publicly in 2001. The intent was to create a spec class racer at a price point that was affordable to the weekend warrior, amateur racer. Previously these Viper racers had been investing considerable sums to modify their production street cars for competition. Now they could purchase a turnkey package that was not only quicker than their home built creations, but safer to boot.

The car was built upon the new for 2003 SRT-10 Viper convertible chassis. It was strengthened throughout with the addition of the mandatory roll cage and was powered by a nearly production stock 8.3L V10 rated at 520 horsepower. Light weight bodywork was inspired by the cancelled second generation GTS-R program, though was toned down considerably to meet the desired price and performance points. A six speed, H-pattern T-56 transmission was offered with the initial production cars that hit the track in 2003. Assembly was handled by Roush Industries in Michigan while customer sales and support were run by Tom Francis through Evernham Motorsports in North Carolina.

Though originally intended for spec racing in the VRL, some customers immediately competed in full professional racing series such as SPEED World Challenge GT. Following 3R Racing/Tommy Archer’s World Challenge GT Championship win in 2004, Dodge engineers hastily worked to offer an optional evolution package for 2005 which included more efficient bodywork in the form of a new splitter, fascia, hood and rear wing. 2006 saw Comp Coupe become just the second car homologated for the new FIA GT3 class and ORECA signing on as the European sales and support arm. Additional mechanical options, including a sequential gearbox, were offered to customers which could result in a vehicle cost that was more than twice as much as the original cars built for 2003. Of all the factory sanctioned Viper race cars, Comp Coupe has the highest production volume with 125 complete production cars constructed plus five prototypes and two “Series II” cars built in 2008. A handful of additional cars have been discovered with non-sequential chassis numbers which by all accounts were constructed by entities outside of the original production line, but utilized original Dodge Motorsports components. Though removed from top level competition for more than a decade, they continue to race in various series worldwide.

*This section of the registry requires the most updates with many chassis to be updated when time is available.*

P1

Original Engine: Dodge 8.3L V10 520 HP

Year of Manufacture: 2001

Original Run Group/Class: Development

First owner: Dodge

Next owners (year): None

Current owner: Fiat-Chrysler Automotive

Chassis History/Notes: This first chassis was painted black and was unveiled in 2001 at Laguna Seca wearing Viper Red paint with dual silver stripes and a silver "Fangs" logo on the quarter panels. Viper Program Manager John Fernandez drove the car on track followed by Senior Powertrain Manager Peter Gladysz in a production Viper. Per team members, P1 was constructed in Canada by Multimatic. At the time it wore a wing similar to that of the 2002 GTS-R Concept Car. Though the car wasn't built for full development work on track, it did participate in some aero testing and brake development testing.

Its specific chassis history is unknown beyond that and at one point the car was disassembled. It's believed that in the mid 2000s an effort to reassemble the car for its historical value was undertaken at Chrysler. For a period of time thereafter it was on display inside the Viper Cafe at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum. As of August 2021 the car was on display for Chrysler employees inside the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant

Original Engine: Dodge 8.3L V10 520 HP

Year of Manufacture: 2001

Original Run Group/Class: Development

First owner: Dodge

Next owners (year): None

Current owner: None

Chassis History/Notes: This chassis was said to have been the first design revision and participated in the bulk of the original development work in 2001-2002. Interestingly it maintained the large basket handle rear wing shown on the first prototype, but the front end aero treatments more closely reflected those which would make it into production. The chassis appears to have been black. This may have been the car that first participated in a drag race against an Air Force F-16 Viper in 2002 at Luke Air Force Base. It was part of an episode of the TV show "Ripley's Believe It or Not". Here it wore a red livery that included Performance Vehicle Operations (PVO) graphics on the doors. This car lived a hard life which included a wreck at GingerMan Raceway. The car was eventually scrapped by Chrysler following end of program. Other history and timeline unknown.

Year of Manufacture: 2001

Original Run Group/Class: Viper Racing League

First owner: Dodge

Next owners (year): None

Current owner: Fiat-Chrysler Automotive

Chassis History/Notes: This chassis was painted grey and remained in service with the development team throughout the entire Comp Coupe program. The car was also used by the factory in the first Viper Racing League appearance for Comp Coupe in Nashville. There it wore Viper Racing League graphics on the doors of its black livery with a large "02" on the quarter panels. The original black livery then included an American flag on the doors, a red Dodge windshield banner, a black wing and additional military jet inspired graphics on the roof and quarter panels. Per the development team it was used for durability testing and included approximately 90% of the design updates which had been devised to that point. It was used in a second drag race event with an F-16 and was driven by journalists for magazine reviews including Car and Driver in 2004.

In 2005 the original body panels were removed and some were auctioned off. The upgraded aero package was fitted to the car and it was painted red where it appeared at another publicity event at Luke Air Force Base. The chassis continued performing much of the development work and durability testing through 2008. The car was disassembled by Chrysler at some point but then team members were told to reassemble the car for its historical value. In the eyes of Comp Coupe Development Engineer Matt Bejnarowicz, P3 may be the most memorable of the prototypes as it participated through every evolution of the program. This chassis is believed to still exist with Chrysler as result in their former museum collection.

First owner: Dodge

Next owners (year): Cindi Lux, Oregon (2007-2009) > Returned to Chrysler, Detroit (2010) > BJ Motors, Texas > Private Collector > Available for sale at BJ Motors, Texas (November 2018)

Current owner: Mark O'Dell, North Carolina (*October 2020)

Chassis History/Notes: This chassis is said to have been used for developmental work including wind tunnel testing. It was built to be a production verification for a customer specification car. Originally it is believed to have worn a Performance Vehicle Operations (PVO) livery in red with white lettering and an "O3" on the quarter panels. Chassis paint at this time appeared to have been white. At some point the interior was painted grey. For a brief time the exterior of the car remained red, but was switched to a Dodge Motorsports livery before receiving "SRT" badging on the doors. It was passed from Chrysler to Cindi Lux. Cindi participated in multiple endurance tests with it to validate new components and sensors some of which lasted 36 hours. She also used the car for driver training with Dodge.

It appeared in multiple magazine reviews during the Comp Coupe introduction and was displayed at Viper Owner Invitational events. The livery was again changed to a special Mopar livery which was bright red with silver/white Mopar lettering on the doors and hood and number 05. One team member recalls the car being used to take prospective buyers on thrill rides and at times, parts were robbed to support emergency repairs of Dodge Motorsports backed cars in World Challenge GT competition. Even though it was used for testing and press track work, no information has been found to show the car participated in any competition. This is believed to be correct and it was never updated from the original VRL configuration. Interestingly while some sections of the chassis remain in white, the interior of the car appears grey as production Comp Coupes were delivered except under the roll cage padding where the original white paint remains. The reason for this change is unknown at this time.

Eventually Chrysler sold the car and it was available for purchase at BJ Motors in Texas as of 2018. At some point headlights were installed in the car. A new owner took delivery of the car in October 2020 and returned the livery to it's original PVO appearance. It appeared at the 2021 Viper Days Reunion and was entered in the race group. It was photographed at the event alongside chassis 15 which has been given a tribute livery matching P4's original PVO appearance.

Chassis History/Notes: This was the final VCC prototype built and was accompanied by a letter from John Fernandez certifying it as such. Per the original team it was not used for testing and has never been raced. The owner believes that the car was built as a production Comp Coupe, but was dubbed a prototype to make amends over a dispute as to who would receive Viper Comp Coupe chassis number 1. It wears a black livery with a coiled snake on the quarter panels and remains in original condition.

Next owners (year): Cory Gehling, Wisconsin (*2007)

Current owner: Cory Gehling, Wisconsin (*2007)

Chassis History/Notes: Per McCann Racing in February 2019, this car wore #83 when campaigned originally. It carried a number of liveries over the years, but its career began in 2003 SPEED World Challenge GT competition in a livery with yellow on top and black on the bottom of the car. For 2004, driver Jim McCann retained the original bodywork and number 83, but the livery was changed to metallic dark blue broken up with white streaks on the side of the car and yellow highlights elsewhere. The car was running an updated shorter exhaust system. This livery remained to begin the 2005 World Challenge season, but the car was updated to the new for that year evolution aero package. By mid season the livery was replaced with one that was entirely yellow other than the rocker panels which were black.

The final season of competition would see Jim retain number 83, but the car wore a livery similar to that which it debuted with in 2003, however the bottom of the car was now dark blue. From 2007 on the exact competition history with the next owner is unknown, but numerous outings in Vintage Races have occurred. In 2017 the car was shown to appear in the #82 Mike McCann livery circa 2007, but has retained its evolution bodywork. Cory Gehling competed at the 2021 Viper Days Reunion with the car appearing in immaculate condition still wearing the same McCann livery.

Chassis History/Notes: This car was said to be the first customer car delivered. It is believed to have been shown to potential customers at a group visit to Roush. It was delivered to Russ Oasis in a Viper red livery with silver GTS style stripes. Russ competed in the Viper Racing League under number 98 possibly as early as 2003, but certainly by early 2004. He ran the car there through 2005. In 2006 Scott Gerami continued to run the car in VRL with the original livery and mechanical configuration, but now as number 24. At some point he changed the stripes to white but the history of the car beyond this point is unknown once it moved to a new owner.

Next owners (year): Stu Frederick > ACS Express/Brandon Davis > Kurt Sollberger > Thomas Levesque, California (2018)

Current owner: Nick Anderson, Missouri (*June 2020)

Chassis History/Notes: Debuting late in the 2003 SPEED World Challenge GT season with Michael McCann at the wheel, this car competed in a split yellow on top, white on the bottom livery carrying number 82 according to McCann Racing in February 2019. It would return for the 2004 season in an updated livery with dark metallic blue on top and white on the bottom with fluorescent yellow accents throughout. A shorter exhaust exiting halfway down the rocker panels debuted at this time which would have been in concert with the optional headers released for the VCC program. Mike McCann would earn the World Challenge Rookie of the Year in the car in 2004. This was one of the first cars converted to World Challenge specification in 2005 with the new aero package front and rear. The blue on top, white on bottom livery remained to start the 2005 season, but without the yellow accents. Later in the season the livery would change to one of mostly white accented by black stripes beginning on the hood vents and continuing over the roof.

By 2006 the blue/white livery returned on number 82 and for the 2007 season the car ran under the original yellow/white 2003 livery but the chassis had been painted yellow. Although the car began the 2008 season with McCann Racing, Jeff Altenburg was at the wheel at Sebring. After this its believed the car was sold to Stu Frederick/Horton Motorsports who continued to campaign the car in WC competition, but now as number 57. Initially the car appeared in a white livery with yellow/gray/black longitudinal stripes on all surfaces, but this quickly gave way to a livery that sandwiched white on the center of the car between yellow front and rear. It is said to have sustained heavy damage in 2008 at Mosport in a crash/fire, but was completely restored.

The history of the car from 2009 through 2015 is unknown at this time. In 2016 the car was raced in the GT1 class of the US GT Championship series presented by NARRA by the Swiss Micron Team. There it scored 5 pole positions and 5 wins. By 2019 it was powered by a sealed World Challenge spec Gen III engine built by Exotic Engine and Marine. The car has the EMCO sequential box, 4 way "8765" Penske shocks, MoTeC ADL2, carbon dash and cockpit adjustable rear sway bar. Photos show the car wearing NARRA GT1 class designation. The livery consisted of a checkered flag pattern intermixed with green, purple and black accents throughout with a white grille and black rear wing. The car appears to have worn race number 48 at this time. In 2020 the car moved to a new owner who applied a wrap inspired by the factory ORECA GTS-Rs as they ran at Le Mans and in FIA GT events during the 1998-1999 seasons. The car has been competing in NASA TTU class time trial events as of 2021. In 2022 the car received a new camshaft and cylinder head work to increase engine output significantly.

Chassis History/Notes: This Comp Coupe participated in the Viper Racing League in at least 2004 and 2005. It wore race number 17 on a green livery with dual silver stripes over the top side of the car. Also competing in SPEED World Challenge GT events as early as 2004 in original specification, by 2005 the car appeared with the updated, larger rear wing then converting entirely to the new bodywork by the 2006 World Challenge GT season. It appears as though the car remained in the Foster family driven originally by Rob but by Jason in 2007 wearing number 18 and by Kyle in 2008 under the same number. Though the number and driver changed during these events the car is believed to be chassis 4. Beyond 2008 the car's history has yet to be found.

First owner: Frank Parise

Next owners (year): Tom Antonelli (August 2007) > Cindi Lux

Current owner: Lance Kouchi, California (*2016)

Chassis History/Notes: This car is said to be just the second Comp Coupe delivered to a private customer. It was delivered from Evernham Motorsports to Fat Albert's shop in Phoenix for final prep and painting. It was sent there unpainted as the owner wanted black with dual silver stripes, but Dodge only planned to offer the cars in monotone black, blue or red. They did offer to paint another chassis to his configuration and did so, but the car was rejected based on the poor quality of the body panels. The unpainted car that was selected instead also arrived with particularly rough body panels and the shop spent considerable time working them to be show car quality before final painting was completed.

Frank went on to race the car primarily in the Viper Racing League and at NASA events. It did compete in a single Speed World Challenge GT race at Road America in 2003 with the original owner. It was eventually repainted in a white livery with dual blue stripes before being sold. The car may have been in a wreck and serious fire with the second owner, but this is unconfirmed at this time (2018). Cindi Lux acquired it on trade from Tom Antonelli and she upgraded it with the World Challenge package. It also ran the 8.3/8.4L hybrid engine. She then competed with the car at multiple World Challenge events eventually selling the car to Lance. Currently it has a Gen IV Hybrid engine, EMCO sequential gearbox, Penske shocks, dual master cylinders and 4 channel ABS (2018).

Chassis History/Notes: Car was ordered by Paul Schley, but delivery was taken by Dan Cragin. As of April 2004 the car still hadn't seen any track time and was listed for sale as having all available factory options at the time including the World Challenge headers and exhaust. This however was prior to the release of the evolution bodywork in 2005. The car finally found its way on track in Canada with new ownership by 2007. It was wearing an orange livery and was campaigned in various Canadian club races under race number 75. By this point in time an aftermarket rear wing was added. Specific race results have not yet been located, but the car was none to compete during the period of 2007-2009. The car is believed to have suffered damage on track at some point which merited a rebuild. At this pint the chassis was updated to carry the evolution World Challenge aero elements and bodywork. Its mechanical configuration at this time is unknown, but by 2013 a new livery was applied to the updated bodywork. Race number 75 remained but now on a bright yellow livery with black accents. No other details have been located beyond 2013.

Bob raced it in a steel blue livery with silver GTS style stripes in what appears from a photo to be the original VRL configuration. The car eventually made its way to Switzerland where it appeared in a light green livery with race number 45. The VRL bodywork was updated with a later WC spec wing and a unique hood which included a radiator exhaust duct. The hood was modified locally in Switzerland. The car competed in club racing events, but the specific race results have yet to be located. As of March 2018 it appears in the Swiss Viper Museum in a Viper Red livery with white GTS style stripes.

Current owner: Daniel Dechaumel (*2019)

Chassis History/Notes: Car was delivered to rising star Paul Mumford in 2003 assumedly in the VRL spec of the first cars. One picture depicts the car still partially in red with some white primer wearing #27. Eventually it was finished in a Venom Red shade with silver, angled GTS stripes that also had a gray inlay pattern wearing #23. Paul was a younger guy who had started in track day events like Viper Days. He made his professional debut at Road America in the Speed GT series which would eventually become the Speed World Challenge Series. Despite it being his first professional race and with a crew of only one (Erik Messley) against factory teams the likes of BMW and Audi, Paul managed to finish in 3rd place after starting in 22nd (ran out of fuel in qualifying). He rolled into his next race again with a crew of one and his open car trailer at Laguna Seca. He managed to qualify 3rd and went on to win the race providing the first race win in professional competition for the VCC!

Unfortunately, Paul was killed in a small plane crash not long after this race. He appeared to be at the start of a promising career. All accounts say Paul was not only quick, but a genuinely great guy as well, may he rest in peace. Comp Coupe C009 appeared for sale in April 2016 (Viper alley username "Toby") with ad saying the car hadn't been for sale in the prior 10 years and showed 25 hours total run time on its data logger. It still appeared in its race winning livery.

Eventually the car was sold to France where it competed in vintage races. The car was sold again in France and was being prepared to compete in the Ultimate Cup Series still wearing its original livery and race number. In a cruel twist of fate, the car was involved in a practice accident at Magny-Cours on October 16, 2020 which resulted in the passing of its driver. Daniel Dechaumel was 68 years old and well respected in the racing community, may he rest in peace. Following this unfortunate accident, the whereabouts of the car are unknown.

Chassis History/Notes: Per Bob Woodhouse, this car was heavily damaged in a seven car pileup on the first lap of its first World Challenge race at Road America in 2003. Bob wasn't going to repair it so it was sold to a new owner after transferring all of the good parts to chassis 47. The front clip was removed at the firewall and repaired at the dealership in Blair, Nebraska. All new parts were then used to build up the repaired chassis 10. From this point forward the car wore a black and white dairy cow theme livery. It competed in SPEED World Challenge GT events under numbers 4 and 74. It appears to have worn its original VRL spec bodywork, but with unique wing stanchions. The exact race results have yet to be located. As of 2020 the car is listed for sale with photos indicating that it appears as it did circa 2004. Cory Gehling displayed the car in the paddock at the 2021 Viper Days Reunion. The car appears to be in excellent condition still wearing its cow themed livery.

Chassis History/Notes: Originally built in the first production run of Comp Coupes, this car competed for years in Viper Racing League events running race numbers 1 and 2 in a Plum Crazy livery. Two complete rebuilds following wrecks at NJMP and VIR have seen the car transform into World Challenge spec with the updated bodywork, hybrid engine package and now a completely white livery (2020). The car found new ownership in 2022 and is mechanically like a new car after spending time at Complete Performance Motorsports in Sebring, Ohio. There a fresh 8.4L engine was installed and is backed by an Xtrac 6XD sequential gearbox. Updated electronics include a drive by wire throttle system. Chassis modifications permit larger tires covering a larger brake package and include increased driver protection by way of additional intrusion mitigation. The car still rides on Moton 3 way adjustable dampers and retains its World Challenge specification bodywork and aero package. For 2022 a new livery has been applied featuring a black camouflage pattern highlight by Mopar graphics outlined in bright yellow.

First owner: Adel Elsayed (Mar 2003)

Next owners (year): Ray Sweers, Michigan (*~2015)

Current owner: Ray Sweers, Michigan (*~2015)

Chassis History/Notes: This car is believed to have debuted in SPEED World Challenge GT competition at Road Atlanta wearing race number 02 on a primarily black livery highlighted by red and sliver accents with snake eye headlights. The exact extent of its competition history from 2003-2007 is still being determined. It would then become part of the Primetime Racing stable run by Joel Feinberg and Chris Hall in the American Le Mans Series. Primetime may have used this as the primary car for the bulk of their two year effort in ALMS (2007-2009). The car wore gray paint on the chassis and had a black livery with dual white GTS style stripes. Modifications that were made to the car in order to run in the higher GT2 class will be documented in the future. At some point the car's suspension was damaged on all four corners, but the frame was still intact. The parts were apparently transferred to chassis 114 and this car was left disassembled. It was included in the purchase of the entire operation by the new owner. As of 2020 the car is undergoing restoration back to its original livery and configuration with Primetime Racing.

Current owner: Mansen Way, Indiana (*August 2020)

Chassis History/Notes: Ben Madey of Viper Speed raced this car in the Viper Racing League during 2004-2007. Richard Wesorick then continued to run the car in VRL from 2008-2012. It has run with a solid, light blue livery for a number of years with black wing end plates. During Richard's time with the car it often wore Viper Speed badging on the doors and race number 32. It has most next wore race #48 and remained in a light blue livery. The car is complete and in good running condition in the VRL configuration with two piece brake rotors and M&M headers along with Forgeline wheels. VRL race history has been provided by Richard Wesorick and will be updated in the future.

A new owner brought the car to the 2021 Viper Days Reunion at Road America. While the mechanical configuration remained the same, Mansen Way adorned the car in a tribute livery to Comp Coupe Prototype 4 when it first appeared in its PVO (Performance Vehicle Operations) livery. This consists of primarily Viper red paint with white decals and number 03 on the quarter panels. Mr. Way went to extreme detail to ensure visual accuracy down to the the color of the rivet heads.

Current owner: Unknown

Chassis History/Notes: It is unknown if the original owner of this car ever turned a lap in it, but by 2004 new ownership took to the track competing in Viper Days/Viper Racing League competition. At this point it ran under race number 20 on a solid black livery. C22 would be a regular at VRL events for years to come. By 2006 the livery was updated to an orange and black strobe scheme similar to that which appeared on special edition Comp Coupe C59 "Toxic". The same pattern remained for 2007 but the orange was changed to bright yellow still carrying race number 20. This livery and original aero configuration remained through approximately the 2011 racing season. It is unclear if the car competed in any capacity from this point until 2014 when a new owner had taken possession. The last know appearance of this car included a bright orange livery with a black center stripe transitioning to a black roof and decklid. The car wore number 91 at this time, but its competition history and mechanical configuration were unknown, as are its current whereabouts.

Current owner: Dismantled, chassis said to be in Canada

Chassis History/Notes: By 2005 this car was competing regularly in World Challenge under number 56 with the new for that year updated aero elements. At that time it wore a white livery with dual blue stripes that tapered to a point at the splitter. It's unclear if it saw action in its original VRL configuration prior though at some point it did appear at VRL events. The livery and configuration appears to have remained the same for the 2006 World Challenge season before flipping to a red/white version of the same livery for 2007 and 2008. By 2009 the livery had again changed to a monotone light blue with a black hood, still as number 56.

Following an unknown period of time the car was sold to a new owner. He began competing in NARRA GTU competition wearing a solid blue livery and race number 5. Numerous wins were scored, but then the car was said to have experienced a terrible fire at Virginia International Raceway at a NARRA race in 2012. It was after this that the car was said to have been parted out and the bare chassis allegedly was sold to Canada. It is unclear if the chassis exists today (January 2022).

Current owner: Unknown

Chassis History/Notes: This was the Mopar backed drift car that Samuel Hübinette used to secure the inaugural North American Formula D Drift Championship in 2004 winning three out of four rounds. It always wore Mopar's period livery of barbed wire on white/blue/black colors and race number 25. In 2003 prior to its competition debut Mopar used the car for display purposes at numerous events around the country. It raced in multiple Viper Racing League events early in 2004 before its first drift event. NuFormz Racing in California prepared the car for drifting competition, but only limited modifications were made. These included alteration of the steering components to allow for increased steering angle. Uniquely, a second MoTeC display was installed on the passenger side of the dash.

After securing the Formula D drifting championship the car would return to Viper Racing League events and would continue to be used for promotional work. The car was also said to have been the first Comp Coupe to compete on a drag strip attending Mopars at the Strip in Las Vegas, Nevada on multiple occasions making its first pass in 2004. In 2007 it appeared at the Silver State Classic high speed event scoring a win in the 160 mph class. The car made multiple exhibition appearances at various Viper club events often with Sam Hübinette putting on a smoke show. The car had always been owned by President of the Las Vegas Viper Club Marko Radosavljevic, but by 2011 it was available for sale in Illinois. The current whereabouts of the car are unknown.

Chassis History/Notes: Originally this car competed in the Viper Racing League wearing number 04 on a solid black livery with gold accents beginning in 2004. It remained this way and in its original VRL mechanical configuration for 2005 VRL competition before receiving the updated aero package for 2006. It was during this year that the car competed in a single SPEED World Challenge GT event at Road America. There it competed under number 04 and its black livery had received further gold accents in the form of side mirrors and a gold center band on the hood and roof. Michael Greenberg earned the race's Sunoco Hard Charger award by gaining eleven places during the race. The car would continue to race in VRL competition before this gave way to North American Road Racing Association events. It remains with the original owner today (2021) in this livery.

Chassis History/Notes: Originally competed in the Viper Racing League wearing number 39 on a Viper blue livery with dual, tapered silver stripes on top and a black wing. Its competition history beyond 2008 is unknown but this point the car had received the 2005+ WC rear wing. It is believed to have been maintained by Archer Racing along the way for competition in NARRA events. As of 2016 the car remained in this configuration but was said to have a fresh motor with high flow heads done by Tim Jelly. It has a TR6060 transmission.

The car competed in the Time Trial class at the 2021 Viper Days Reunion with Jon Stuedeman. It has maintained the blue livery with tapered silver stripes, but has received numerous mechanical upgrades. These include Gen IV heads with Drag Pak intake manifold, MoTeC digital dash, a larger front brake rotor/caliper package and a rare intermediate Dodge Motorsports rear wing with custom end plates. This wing is similar in profile to the original VRL/GTC wing, but is slightly wider and longer.

Next owners (year): Stan Wilson (2004) > Scotty B. White (200?) > TMN Motorsports/Nate Stokey (2012)

Current owner: Matt McCarron, Minnesota (*201?)

Chassis History/Notes: Kenny Hawkins sold this car while it was still in new condition to Stan Wilson. He competed with the car in SPEED World Challenge GT competition under a red and white Dodge Motorsports livery wearing number 92 during the 2004 season. The car was still in its original mechanical configuration at this point. Cindi Lux believes Scotty White ran this car in World Challenge in 2007. Scotty competed under number 3 as part of the Lux Performance team with backing from Dodge. The cars wore a primarily white livery with blue and red slashes on multiple panels. They wore the updated WC aero package at this point.

The history of the car is unknown until 2012 when it was purchased by TMN Motorsports and supported by Archer Racing. It went to compete in NARRA GT1 events in 2013 as well as various enduro races including PBOC Winterfest at Sebring. Here it wore a red livery with dual black longitudinal stripes over the top of the car. It competed under numbers 49 and 92. Nate Stokey drove the car, but shared with Competition Coupe development driver Tommy Archer on some occasions.

As of 2020 the car still exists in a red livery with dual black longitudinal stripes over the top of the car. The 2005+ aero remains in place and the car is believed to have last competed in NARRA GT1 specification with the 8.3L engine and T56 transmission. When the car appeared at the 2021 Viper Days Reunion at Road America it was competing in the Time Trial group now with an updated Gen III engine package from Nth Moto backed by a Hollinger sequential gearbox. The red/black livery has remained in place and the car still carries race number 92.

First owner: Bob Woodhouse, Nebraska (*2003)

Next owners (year): None

Current owner: Bob Woodhouse, Texas

Chassis History/Notes: This car was used to replace the original chassis on Bob Woodhouse's VCC C10 which was heavily damaged in an accident on debut at Road America in 2003. The good parts from C10 were transferred to this car. It possibly has accrued more race starts than any other VCC with many coming in the various iterations of the World Challenge Series. Racing under Bob's number 13, the car has most often worn its iconic Woodhouse Automotive livery of metallic purple/blue highlighted by yellow/orange flaming stripes on both the sides and top of the car. While it originally competed in 2003 in VRL specification it would later be updated to the 2005 evolution bodywork.

It made a one off appearance in the American Le Mans Series when in 2007 it competed in the GT2 class at Mid Ohio. The car was not developed for this series and the outing was used as somewhat of a test to generate interest in Viper. The car wasn't homologated for GT2 competition, but the series allowed them to compete anyway. Unfortunately the team encountered power steering troubles in the race. Extensive modifications have been completed over the years, the exact nature of which need to be recorded.

This car received direct support from Dodge Motorsports during 2008-2010 and visited the Chrysler wind tunnel for development work three times. In later seasons of World Challenge competition the car was piloted by numerous drivers, including Tommy Archer, Kasey Kahne, Kuno Wittmer, Jeff Courtney, Jeff Altenburg, Claudio Burtin, Brian Smith and Charles Putnam while still retaining its Woodhouse livery and normally number 13. Though on at least one occasion in 2007 at Charlotte the car ran under Kahne's NASCAR number 9. In 2010 the car wore a blue livery with dual white stripes on race number 99 with Jeff Courtney driving.

As of 2020 the car still exists in its iconic livery and visits the track occasionally for fun with Bob at the wheel. It appeared at the 2021 Viper Days Reunion at Road America to compete in both the Race and Time Trial classes. Bob would be piloting the car in the race group with Mike Kirsch at the controls in time trial competition. The car was now wearing what is arguably the most aggressive aero package ever fitted to a Comp Coupe complete with a swan neck wing accented by an enlarged diffuser and balance at the front of the car by an extended splitter. These modifications only added mystique to what many consider to be the most recognizable Comp Coupe in existence.

Next owners (year): Cindi Lux, Oregon (2006-2009) > Tom Antonelli > Gus Pablecas (2019)

Current owner: Mark Schumann, Wisconsin (*2021)

Chassis History/Notes: Tommy Archer drove this car with 3R Racing to secure the 2004 SPEED World Challenge GT Championship. During that season the car wore number 22 on a blue livery with a bright yellow stripe on the hood, roof, mirrors and rear wing. The car had the original VRL spec bodywork but had extended wing end plates at some events. In 2005 it was driven by Phil McClure in SPEED World Challenge GT with 3R Racing. The car then wore the updated WC bodywork with a blue livery broken up by wide, white stripes on the hood, roof and doors with race number 2.

In 2006 the car remained with 3R Racing in World Challenge competition, but was then driven by Skip Sauls wearing number 96 on an orange and white livery. Cindi Lux then acquired C48 and ran it in World Challenge GT during the 2007 through 2009 seasons with backing from Chrysler Canada at first and then Mopar who picked her up to be a factory driver for the 2008 season. In 2007 it was run as a team car to Scotty White. It was sold at some point after 2009. It looks as though this car was run by Tom Antonelli in NARRA GTX class wearing a white livery with blue GTS style stripes and the upgraded aero package. At the time the car was maintained by Complete Performance Motorsports in Sebring, Ohio and in May of 2019 it was sold to Gus Pablecas. The car found new ownership by late 2021.

Chassis History/Notes: This car appears to have competed regularly in the Viper Racing League but no other details are known at this time. It wore a silver livery that included dark red on the doors breaking into a checkered pattern on the quarter panel. It had a black wing and raced with number 50. It was campaigned in NASA events with the support of McCann Racing winning an ST1 class National Championship in 2012 wearing number 61. Here it wore an evolving red livery with black and silver highlights. At one point this livery included silver snake skin accents. It appears as though the updated WC aero pieces were integrated over time. At one point the car was competing at Virginia International Raceway with a later owner and it ended up on its roof. The current owner (September 2020) purchased the car shortly thereafter and it now sits at the ready for future track events. It remains silver, but is set to receive the same American flag graphics of the family team that can be seen on VCC C114.

Next owners (year): Bernie Katz (????) > ? > For sale at Viper Exchange 12/19/2017

Current owner: Chris Curtis (2020)

Chassis History/Notes: Originally this car was raced by Lenny Diller in SPEED World Challenge GT competition. In 2004 it appeared as number 51 with a primarily black livery with yellow and white stripes on the hood with red/white slashes on the doors and quarter panels. It first competed in the original aero package and the black livery remained through 2005 though the stripes and slashes were dropped. In 2006 it ran with the updated, full width rear wing.

For 2007 it received the remainder of the updated bodywork along with a new red livery up front that transitioned to white via slashes moving aft. The race number remained 51 in WC competition. Later this car was owned and raced by Bernie Katz but the exact time period is unknown as Bernie owned multiple Comp Coupes. For 2016, Comp Coupe would be made eligible for the SCCA T1 class by adding 170 lbs of ballast and utilizing a 52 mm air inlet restrictor. That year Ross Murray won the SCCA T1 National Runoffs at Mid Ohio wearing the #91 gray snakeskin with black GTS stripes livery that it wore while for sale at Viper Exchange in Texas (2017) Prior to the race the car had been prepared by Jeff Stout/Complete Performance Motorsports.

As of November 2018 the car was still available for purchase at Viper Exchange, but the livery has been removed leaving the car with plain, polished black body panels. Under new ownership as of spring 2020, the car has received a silver center stripe outlined in a red pinstripe. In 2022 the livery was updated to include silver/red strobe stripes on the side of the car and race number 25.

Chassis History/Notes: This car appears to have entered Viper Racing League competition in 2005 with Kurt Solberger behind the wheel wearing #84 on a yellow livery with a central black stripe running along the top of the car. It appeared at at least one event in a similar livery in 2006 with new owners still running in the VRL. By 2007, Steve Loudin had acquired the car and turned it into what would become one of the most recognizable Comp Coupe liveries - 007 in gold with black doors. Steve continued to run the car in NARRA events for a number of years. The original chassis was replaced after a heavy crash at Sebring. By 2010 the livery had been updated to include a torn graphic on the quarter panel revealing a different surface beneath the otherwise gold wrap. It maintained its original VRL spec bodywork at this point. The whereabouts and configuration following Steve's ownership are unknown at this time.

Current owner: Nadine Geary/Bjorn Arnils, England (*Late 2006)

Chassis History/Notes: This car competed in the Belgian Racing Car Championship with Rudolph Racing in 2005-2007. It also contested rounds of the Dutch Supercar Challenge. In 2005 it competed under number 14 and wore a solid red livery. The bodywork was a combination of original VRL spec aero on the front of the car with the addition of canards, but on the rear was the wider evolution wing from 2005. It appears to have maintained this livery and configuration during 2006 where it wore number 28 except the original primary air inlet in the hood was sealed.

It was thought that for 2007 the livery remained monotone red with black on the door mirrors and aero elements, but the car had been updated to 2005+ evolution bodywork on the front end. Following a troubled season in 2007, the team was preparing to compete in the Dutch Supercar Challenge in 2008 when the car was heavily damaged in a test at Spa. It history beyond this point is unknown as the team purchased another car for the 2008 season. New information (2022) suggests that it may not have been C56 competing with Rudolph in 2007. Additional research is underway.

Current owner: Arlin Kiel, Iowa (*2019)

Chassis History/Notes: This car was one of three special edition Competition Coupes built by Dodge for Viper Owners Invitational 8 in Dallas in 2004. It was called the "Liberator" and wore a special red/white/blue livery. A plaque near the driver's side pedal box indicated its unique status. Comp Coupe Customer Sales and Support Manager Tom Francis recalls, "We had so much interest in the three cars we had to have a raffle. We put all the names of the potential buyers in and drew three names out to determine who got the cars. I think I could have sold six cars that show it; it was the most interest we ever had at VOI." Some couples entered both their names in the drawing to increase their chances of winning. this was exactly the case here with Mary Greenberg's name being pulled as winner.

Its second owner, Jason Daskalos, ran the car for a single season in the Viper Racing League wearing the original patriotic livery with race number 05. Jason managed to win the Rookie of the Year award and secured the 2006 GT-C class championship. Another future Viper star would enter this car's history and Ben Keating is believed to have taken ownership sometime in 2007. He maintained the car's original livery, but competed under race number 33. The specific events that Ben competed in with this car are believed to have occurred in the Viper Racing League, but the results are still being located.

Its competition history is unknown from this period until 2011. Then it was competing in NASA time trial competition in the TT1 class wearing #32 on a green livery with dual black stripes under the Lolly Girl Racing banner. It competed in two full seasons of time trial competition through 2012 and the undertook a partial season in 2014 earning a first place finish in the NASA TT1 Southern Cup standings. It moved to a new owner thereafter and eventually appeared in a VOA classified ad in November 2018 still wearing a bright green livery with black GTS style stripes and a black wing/black wheels. The car is said to be complete in VRL body configuration with two piece brake rotors, Belanger headers, a Tilton clutch and a Tranzilla gearbox.

Chassis History/Notes: Pictures from a factory visit may show this car as having originally been built with its yellow livery and dual black stripes. It has been said that this is the only Comp Coupe built in this color combination in 2005. It entered competition in the Viper Racing League wearing this livery with #7 in the GT-C class. The car looks to have competed in VRL events through at least 2007, but beyond that its history is unknown until 2017. As of 2017 it retains the yellow livery and appears with race number 72. Though it was originally constructed as a VRL spec car, it now has the VCC Hybrid engine with Gen IV heads, drag pak intake and 710 cam. The 2005+ WC/GT3 rear wing is currently installed along with 15" brakes and a TR6060 transmissions with revised 5th and 6th gear ratios. The front bodywork has been updated to World Challenge spec. Its competition history prior to this time is still trying to be located. The car attended the 2021 Viper Days Reunion at Road America and competed in the Race group still wearing its yellow/black livery with race number 72.

Current owner: Tom Atherton, Oklahoma (*2005)

Chassis History/Notes: This was a special car produced by Dodge for a 2005 Viper Club of America membership raffle. It was the first Comp Coupe to be included in a raffle. The car wore a white livery with blue GTS style stripes starting at the hood scoop and carrying over the top side of the car and the wing matching the Commemorative Edition cars which Dodge sold in limited quantities in 2005 (Viper SRT-10, Ram SRT-10, Neon SRT-4). This however would be the only Commemorative Edition Competition Coupe. It wore a DODGE windshield banner and on the back of the quarter panel it had a large Viper Club of America badge. There were also blue interior accents to the seat and steering wheel.

This car is one of only two Comp Coupes known (at this time) to have come originally with blue chassis paint. The other car being chassis 89. The car was sold by the raffle winner shortly after taking delivery. The original Forgeline wheels were removed and saved. It was then actively campaigned for years by Tom Atherton in the Viper Racing League, NARRA and PBOC scoring numerous class wins along the way. During this time it maintained its originally livery while running under race number 00. No major modifications were performed nor was significant crash damage sustained. The car attended the 2021 Viper Days Reunion at Road American and competed in the Race group. It has remained in the original appearance and excellent overall condition.

Chassis History/Notes: This car has been run for years by its original owner in a Plum Crazy livery with race number 1. Its original configuration is unknown at this time, but Complete Performance Motorsports in Sebring, Ohio has modified the car extensively as it has competed in Viper Racing League and then NARRA events over the years. At one point the original chassis had to be replaced due to crash damage and a production street car chassis was used as the basis for the car's current iteration. It is likely one of the quickest Comp Coupes in existence powered by an engine with increased displacement backed by a sequential gearbox all hidden under WC specification bodywork. The sanitary interior has a custom center stack and digital dash. The car appeared at the 2021 Viper Days Reunion at Road America competing in the Race group.

First owner: SRO, England (Nov 2005)

Next owners (year): Racing Logistic, France (2006) > Guy Clairay Racing (GCR), France (2007) > ? > GM Sport (2014) > ?

Current owner: Jean Luc Fortunati, France (*2018)

Chassis History/Notes: This is one of the six cars purchased by the Stephane Ratel Organization to help jump start their newly developed GT3 category in 2006. Those the original sales records show the car being sold from the SRO to a Brazilian customer, it first competed in the inaugural FIA GT3 European Championship in 2006 with the Racing Logistic team based in France. The car wore number 11 on a red livery with dual white tapered stripes on the top panels.

In 2007 it maintained this livery, but wore number 65 while competing in the FFSA GT Championship with GCR. This team appears to have contended this championship through 2010 with the car changing its livery multiple times. In 2008 the red livery was broken up with a yellow fascia and rocker panels. Late in the season the fascia was modified with the removal of the crosshair grille elements. In 2008 GCR appears to have switched to orange panels on the fascia, fenders, rocker panels and roof with white elsewhere. Race number 65 was maintained, though any changes to the mechanical configuration are unknown at this time.

Through 2009 and 2010 FFSA GT competition, GCR switched to a primarily white livery with yellow again on the fascia and rocker panels. Number 65 was run in 2009, but was changed to number 14 in 2010. Late in the season the 14 car appeared in a new livery consisting of red/white/blue, though it has not been confirmed at this time that it was this chassis. After a possible entry at Dijon as number 51 in the FFSA GT series, GCR contested the 2011 24 Hours of Spa with the car wearing number 82 and competing in the GT3 Gentleman class with a white livery with dual silver longitudinal stripes on top and a red fascia/rocker panels. It would also contest the Monza and Silverstone rounds of the Blancpain Endurance Series in 2012 before again racing at the Spa 24 Hours under number 82 in a combined effort under Bull Fight Racing/GCR. The car wore a similar livery to 2011 with additional red streaks throughout.

The history is unknown until 2014 when the car appeared again in FFSA GT competition with GM Sport wearing a highlighter yellow livery with dual black longitudinal stripes on top with number 17. An American flag appeared on the doors with dual Snakes on the quarter panels. Later the car appears to have worn number 22. The current owner says the car at some point received an updated 8.4L engine with Gen IV based cylinder heads and a drag pak intake manifold. A fresh EMCO sequential gear box is in place as of 2020 along with the original GT3 spec bodywork with modified fascia.

Current owner: Steve Humble, South Africa (*201?)

Chassis History/Notes: This is one of the six cars purchased by the Stephane Ratel Organization to help jump start their newly developed GT3 category in 2006. It is believed to have competed in the inaugural European FIA GT3 Championship with Racing Box in a dark blue livery with silver GTS style stripes and a black wing most often wearing number 28. At some point thereafter, this became one of two cars that were converted at ORECA to GT2 specification. This work included the installation of a Hollinger sequential gearbox, modifications to the engine, aerodynamic package as seen with side windows and wing endplates, a revised engine oiling system and the removal of the ABS braking system.

The details of these changes have been located with a previous owner will be updated at a later date along with the car's competition history thereafter. It possibly raced with Team RaceArt in 2008 and 2009 in the Dutch Supercar Challenge. Engine issues resulted in disappointment for the team. There it would have worn their red Rudolph Racing livery under number 104. As of 2016 this car was still in running condition in the UK wearing a monotone red livery. It made its way to South Africa at which point it received a mechanical overhaul and was listed for sale in 2020 still appearing in red.
