This Dodge Viper you see here is the only one in the world and it is from the ASC (American Specialty Cars) and American-based McLaren Performance Technologies with Bruce Mclaren behind it. That’s why they call it Mclaren Viper! The full name is ASC Mclaren Diamondback Viper. Anyway, This unique tuned Viper is up for sale for $295,000. Now if you wonder why it’s so expensive, apart from being a one-off it is a brilliant engineering job, powered by 615hp V10 engine and has alot of carbon fiber parts. See those trumpeted air intake coming out of the hood? those alone worth the price!

Take a look at McLaren Diamondback Viper pictures and read the press note below for more details:

ASC (American Specialty Cars) has a long history of developing vehicle prototypes with innovations designed to showcase the company’s expertise in vehicle design and performance materials. ASC showed its expertise at the 2006 North American International Auto Show by unveiling a supercar made even more super by the addition of a mostly carbon-fiber body. A ‘snake’ with an all-new skin, the ASC Viper Diamondback is super-light and super-fast. It’s fitting that ASC, which helped the Chrysler Group bring the new Dodge Viper SRT10 coupe to life, would, with the aid of McLaren Performance Technologies, show how the Viper coupe might be taken to an all-new level of ‘extreme’.The 2006 615-horsepower Diamandback Viper features a carbon fiber roof, deck lid, rockers, fascia inserts and body trim. It also sports a massive OmniCarbon™ hood that shows off ten unique trumpeted air intakes, with individual port throttles peeking through. This is a McLaren Performance Technologies feature, reminiscent of McLaren Can-Am engines of the past.

The hood is comprised of compression-molded carbon fiber, both painted and woven. It’s displayed beautifully, with a broad, clearcoated racing stripe down the Arctic White painted expanse, subtly outlined by “Viper Blue” and “McLaren Orange” pinstripes. In all, ASC removed about 85 lbs. from the vehicle — the hood alone weighs about half of the standard production model. Taken together with the performance modifications by McLaren, the resulting power-to-weight ratio is estimated to yield an incredible 0-60 time — in just 3.5 seconds!
