Dodge Announces Pricing for Viper’s Final Model Year
The bells of the Dodge Viper’s final model year are ringing, and with them come the announcement of the 2017 Viper’s price. Earlier this month, Dodge revealed the pricing for the iconic American super car, and if it seems familiar, well—it’s because it’s the same as the 2016 model.
For the 2017 model year, potential Viper buyers will have to shell out at least $92,990—including the $2,600 gas-guzzler tax and $2,498 destination charge—if they want to get their hands on the final Viper to be produced. This price is exactly the same as the 2016 Dodge Viper, which should come as no surprise since the model has undergone so few changes.
While $92,990 is the price for the entry-level trim, the GT and GTC variants start at $100,993, while the GTS asks for $113,093. Viper fans that love the track-ready appearance—and performance abilities—of the award-winning and record-breaking Viper ACR can get this supercar for an extra $10,800.
Along with these run-of-the-mill (or as run-of-the-mill as the Viper can be) models, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has offered a handful of special-edition models. Sadly for those of us who didn’t have a hundred thousand dollars to spare, these models all sold out soon after they were announced—some within as little as 40 minutes. All-in-all, the models sold out within just five ordering days.
Dodge announced the Viper’s demise in October of 2015, making the all-American supercar’s final year 2017. Currently, the Vipers are built by hand at Fiat Chrysler’s Conner Avenue plant in Detroit. This isn’t the first time the Viper has gone out of production, though. It was also ended in 2010 when Chrysler declared bankruptcy, though it came back to life in 2013.
Here’s hoping this isn’t the end of the American super car.
