Who says Dodge Viper is not a loved car in the US? Especially when Dodge says that this is the last year when you can buy the Viper, a supercar that will probably not be followed by a successor. To mark the last year of production Dodge launched some anniversary edditions, on which we wrote one week ago.
Now, after first going on sale Friday, June 24, 206 special-edition 2017 Dodge Vipers designed with exclusive content to celebrate the 25th anniversary and final year of Viper production are totally sold out.
Leading the selling spree was the new 1:28 Edition ACR. All 28 units sold out in just 40 minutes. All 31 units of the VoooDoo II Edition ACRs had new owners within two hours. The Snakeskin Edition GTC (25 units) and GTS-R Commemorative Edition ACR (100 units) took only two ordering days to sell out. All 22 units of the Dodge Dealer Edition ACR sold out within five ordering days.
An all-new ACR version of the Snakeskin Edition will be made available with up to 31 units to continue the 25th Viper Anniversary celebration. Orders for the Snakeskin ACR special edition will open in mid-July.
This last model has a color that was inspired by the original 2010 Snakeskin ACR. It also features new Snakeskin Green exterior with a custom snakeskin-patterned SRT stripe, ACR Package, Extreme Aero Package, carbon ceramic brakes, ACR interior, serialized instrument panel Snakeskin badge and a custom car cover that matches the exterior paint scheme and showcases the customer name above the driver’s side door .
As many as 31 units of this new special-edition configuration will be produced for 2017. Looking back in Viper history: 31 units of the original Snakeskin Viper ACR were built in 2010.
