Special Edition 2017 Dodge Vipers Sold Out

Standard

Dodge is celebrating the 25th anniversary and final year of Viper production with five exclusive limited-edition models, four of which are pictured here. (From left, the Viper Snakeskin Edition GTC, inspired by the original 2010 Snakeskin ACR; the Vooodoo II ACR, modeled after the original 2010 Viper VooDoo edition; the Viper GTS-R Commemorative Edition ACR, designed to pay tribute to one of the most distinguishable and iconic Viper paint schemes of all time – the white and blue combination of the 1998 Viper GTS-R GT2 Championship Edition;  and the Viper 1:28 ACR, which pays tribute to the current production car single lap record of 1:28.65 set by champion driver Randy Pobst in a 2016 Dodge Viper ACR at historic Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterey, Calif., in October 2015. A fifth Dodge Dealer Edition Viper ACR, not shown, is available through select Dodge dealers.

2017 will be a bittersweet year for the Dodge Viper. The iconic Viper will celebrate its 25th anniversary next year and also mourn its demise.

The good news is Dodge decided to end production on a high note. Several special edition Vipers will be released in 2017, including the Snakeskin Edition GTC, 1:28 Edition ACR, and VooDoo II Edition ACR. The bad news is these special editions have already sold out with one exception. The Viper Snakeskin ACR will be available to order in mid-July. Up to 31 of these special edition Viper Snakeskin ACRs will be built. Read the rest of this entry
