Dodge sends the Viper off in style
It is nearly time to say goodbye to the current Viper, but not before producing one final special edition.

To celebrate the last year of Viper production Dodge has announced a 'Final Edition' limited run model. Just fifty cars will be produced in Roadster, Coupé and ACR (American Club Racer) versions.

Each car gets graphite paint with a black centre stripe outlined in red. The windscreen surround is finished in black and there are unique sill badges. Coupé and Roadster models get six-spoke, anthracite alloy wheels while the ACR features black, five-spoke wheels.

The interior has been jazzed up too with red stitching, a red 'halo' surrounding the instruments and bright stainless steel screws. A numbered plaque on the dashboard confirms each car's place in the series and there are unique floor mats.

Under the bonnet the 8.4-litre V10 is unchanged but 600bhp and 560lb.ft are not figures to be taken lightly. Dodge claims a 0-60mph time of 'less than four seconds' and a top speed of 202mph. The all-American performance benchmark, the standing quarter mile, is in the 'mid 11-second range'.

The run of 50 Final Edition Vipers consists of 20 Coupés, 18 Roadsters and 12 ACRs. The cars will start rolling off the production line this summer.
