This really shows how people sometimes tend to act stupid. The Dodge fans were quick to break the bank to acquire the 2017 Viper Limited Edition models because these are the final versions of the supercar.
And this brings us to our question. When the second generation Viper was axed a few years back during the summer of 2010 because of dismal sales everyone roared about the death of the American supercar. Then Chrysler reopened the Pandora’s box with the hand-built third generation. All fans rejoiced but here we are in 2016 with dismal sales again and with the Limited Edition models being the last Vipers to be manufactured. Really, no one learned the lesson?
The US brand opened the order books for the plethora of special edition Vipers that were the company’s way of saying how great the model still is and how they feel about parting ways. These will become instant collectibles since the Viper line is once again axed. These commemorate previous special editions or a particular milestone of the American supercar. For example, the 1:28 Edition ACR, which only has a production run of 28 units, was sold in 40 minutes. Then the 31 units of the VoooDoo II Edition ACR were done in two hours, the Snakeskin GTC edition was out in two days and the GTS-R Commemorative Edition ACR’s, with 100 examples, was also out in two ordering days.
More so, the automaker’s success made them cook up fast another special edition, dubbed the Dodge Viper Snakeskin ACR. It will boast a Snakeskin Green exterior, an ACR Package, the Extreme Aero Package, carbon ceramic brakes, ACR interior, a serialized instrument panel badge and just 31 units will be made.
