Dodge reveals limited-edition models as Viper slithers out of production

It’s been a long time coming, but Chrysler has finally announced that production of the Dodge Viper will permanently cease from the end of 2017. In typical Viper fashion, however, the cold-blooded supercar certainly won’t bow out without a bang…

In its numerous variations, the Dodge Viper has been in production for 25 years. To celebrate the eight-litre V10-powered supercar’s legacy, Dodge has revealed four (of the five eventual) special edition models to be sold in 2017, the final year of production. They are as follows: the Snakeskin Edition GTC, the Voodoo II ACR, the GTS-R Commemorative Edition ACR and the 1:28 ACR. Each model references a special edition Viper from the last 25 years – the 1998 GTS-R GTS Championship Edition and the 2010 Voodoo ACR, for example – and comes in various states of trim. We hope that when Dodge reveals the elusive fifth special edition car, it’s a car that will truly sink its teeth into our memories.
