The last exemplar of the current generation Dodge Viper has rolled off the production line at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit, marking the end for one of America's iconic sports cars.

This very last unit was a custom Dodge Viper coupe which will enter D'Ann Rauh's possession, who already owns over 40 Doge Vipers together with her husband Wayne. She worked closely with designers at Chrysler, making sure that the last Dodge Viper was truly unique, as the exterior features a gold finish with bronze accents while inside the coupe there are numerous leather covered elements.

The exterior is completed by a set of 5-spoke design forged-aluminum wheels painted in dark graphite.

Production for the Dodge Viper started in 1992 and even though is has not been officially confirmed, rumors say the next generation Viper will debut in 2012.

The custom bronzed gold exterior paint was supplied by House of Kolor. The custom interior features various leatherappointments, which were
