    This is the newest style top to come out of Autoform after a long winter and countless hours by the guys there. It is a modified version of the previous top. This is on a gen 1, but will also fit gen 2 cars. pricing has not been set, but any feedback is appreciated.. well most any, dont tell me its ugly. :) i will try to get some other pics up later, even from requested angles.. thanks

    That is badass. Love the roof profile as well. The autoform top I have is more curvaceous while this one is more sharp and aggressive. Steve is gonna make me have two tops for one car

    Putting out more mods for the RT-10 makes perfect business sense.

    Most people looking to buy a Viper opt out of the RT-10's because of the issues with storing the top or would rather go completely topless and thus miss out on this great vehicles design and stance. Not to mention price savings.

    Having Autoform continue to innovate this car and bring it out into the eyes of the some and into the hands of the most is something Steve has always know to do in the last 20+ years he has been involved with the Viper. These types of upgrades to the RT-10 will make them a lot more enticing to the average buyer. Thus bringing up the prices and popularity back to the Gen 1's and some Gen 2's.

    This top looks very comfortable and well placed (well designed) on this car. It looks like it belongs. Where as some manufactures build products that just don't seem to mold themselves with the contour of the car, Autoforms usually do.

    Steve has brought out many styles within the Challenger, Cuda and Viper brands that even Dodge had no choice but to follow and call their own. His vision in the past has played a big roll for Dodge and its versions of the new cars.

    His production of the GTS-R Daytona Package cars that were numbered have come to fruition as of lately. Barrett Jackson just sold one of his 2002 Daytona builds this year for 74,800 + commissions. Over 80K for that car. Respect is due where respect is due. here is the link to that car....

    http://www.barrett-jackson.com/application/onlinesubmission/lotdetails.aspx?ln=998&aid=525

    I ordered the 4 blade rear diffuser for my 96 GTS and I will tell you, its quite the piece. Heavy, well built factory fitting and looking item that I am proud of adding to my car along with the entire Daytona Package that I bought off them a few years back.


    The top looks awesome !!....Changes the look of this car completely in every good way. Makes me want to go out and get an RT-10 !!

    Its quite a bit more difficult to take the top off a gts on a nice day. But now us rt guys can look just as cool. :)

    Top looks nice. One of our members had an early one on their Gen 1 that made it look similar to a GTS. The one thing I remember that was interesting was that the top had two A-Pillar portions that acutally secured underneath the hood. Does your top go down the A-Pillar? Hard to tell since you car is black.

    The top itself doesn't, the windows do. We have a body color trim piece idea for that but no promises. It's still just an idea.
