Bob Lutz Tears up the Track at Indianapolis Speedway
Dodge was the spotlight at the Indianapolis 500 in 1996. The stunning Viper GTS Coupe paced the field at the 80th running of the spring classic.
The 450 hp GTS Coupe needed no performance modifications to meet the track’s pace-car specifications. Bob Lutz, president (at the time) of Chrysler Corp., was designated as the snake’s pilot for the May 26th run.
Although Dodge didnt’ produce GTS replicars for public consumption, Dodge did offer an “Indy 500 Special Edition” pickup.
