July 29th, 2016 by

HoodFiat Chrysler have recently announced the changes to be made for the 2017 Dodge Viper, and the Viper keeps its spot at the top of the premium sports  car category. While the new Dodge sports car will mark the Viper’s last year, Dodge has gone out with a bang, with six special edition models planned for the vehicle’s swansong year.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the legendary Viper. One of the most impressive and envy-inducing nameplates in the world for a solid quarter-century, the Viper is an expression of pure driving joy.

If you’re in the market for a sports car that’s ready for the track, the Viper ACR is the right choice for you. Only introduced in 2016, the ACR holds production car records at 13 race tracks across North America. However, the Viper will now be expanded with six world-class special edition models, including:

  • Viper Snakeskin Edition GTC
  • Viper 1:28 Edition ACR
  • Viper GTS-R Commemorative Edition ACR
  • Viper Snakeskin Edition ACR
  • Viper VoooDoo II Edition ACR
  • Viper Dodge Dealer Edition ACR

From the classic white on blue color combination (designed after the 1998 Viper GTS-R GT2 Championship Edition) to the eye-catching green hue of the Snakeskin models, these special editions are already attracting particular interest.

Of course, even the standard models are anything but standard. At the heart of each sits a mighty 8.4L V10 engine that puts drivers in command of up to 645 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque. The latest Viper even boasts a more responsive drive than ever before thanks to adjustable stability control, traction control, and a 4-channel anti-lock brake system, making the best even better.
