From the outside, the car takes the look of a Dodge Viper, but once you pop open the hood, you’d be surprised that there’s nothing Viper-ish about what you’re going to find. That’s because the Viper is just the body. What’s inside is actually a Chevrolet Corvette. Appropriately enough, it’s called the “ViperVette”. Catchy.

Make no mistake though, the Corvette engine inside this Viper is no slouch. It’s got a 5.7-liter engine that’s mated to a four-speed manual gearbox, giving it enough performance so as not to shame the car out on the road. As for the car’s interior, the owner mixed in red and black leather seat covers on the upholstery as well as a nice load of features including tilt wheels, power trunk, power seats, and power mirrors.

In the event that you’re fancying this car – can’t think of any reason why not – then you’re in luck. The car is actually for sale at a pretty reasonable price of just $12,250. There’s a catch, though. It’s got about 139,000 miles on the odometer.

But hey, how often will you get the chance to own a piece of two iconic American sports cars in one flaming hot, red package?

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
