It may not have 3,300 horsepower, but this ultra rare Viper Defender is reportedly just one of fourteen vehicles made for the 1994 Viper TV series about a special US task force set up to fight crime in the fictional Metro City. Based on a stretched 1993 Dodge Viper RT/10 chassis, this show car was designed by Chrysler, powered by a 360ci Chrysler 5.9L small-block V8 making between 230 hp – 250 hp, mated to a 727 automatic transmission sending power to the rear wheels.
This Viper Defender was purportedly the principal car during filming of the show and not used for stunt work. Its fiberglass body is finished in tri-stage silver, complete with a double buble fixed roof with simulated porthole windows, removable side windows, dual exhaust pipes, and a flip-up rear spoiler for fuel cap access. The cabin features gray leather bucket seats, three simulated monitors displaying static images of the car system’s diagnostics, and a gray headliner. More information here.
