While buyers didn’t swarm to put the cash down for the reinvented Viper sports car, the few that took it home in 2014 will be angry to hear the upgraded 2015 model year also gets a $15,000 price cut.
While few American cars matched the prowess of European supercars, the Viper could be counted among them, despite its numerous technical oddities and renowned usage difficulty. Now in its fifth generation, the sports car has been troubled lately by a lagging demand. Originally conceived back in 1992, the Viper had a price of $50,700 – adjusted for inflation it would be $85,642 today.
Well, the 2015 Dodge Viper SRT – the automaker also reverted to the Dodge brand name for the 2015 model year – has finally matched the price of its original incarnation, with the company announcing the updated model will cost $84,995. That’s a good $15,000 less than the 2014 model year. With the model also expected only in the first quarter of 2015, wanting clients will need to settle for the more expensive model if they want the mode earlier.
Our advice? Wait for the 2015 Viper. As we pointed out before, the 2015 Dodge Viper SRT also comes with a host of enhancements, among them being an extra 20 horsepower, taking the V10 to 645 – just shy of the 650 hp boasted by the soon to be introduced Chevrolet Corvette Z06 rival.
