“The Viper checks all the boxes for a future collectible,” said McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty. “Limited-volume, race-bred pedigree, iconic styling, and raw power make it a natural choice for the 2016 Hot List.”
When the Viper was first conceived in 1992, it stunned the automotive industry with its exotic good looks and American-built body. This supercar has transformed into one of the most high-performance vehicles in the market, and is still distinctively American. The 2016 Viper SRT has a hand-built V10 engine that churns out 645-horsepower and a hand-crafted body.
Right now, consumers that want to shell out the money for the 2016 Viper can create a one-of-a-kind super car that fits their personal style. Dodge created the 1-of-1 customization program to offer consumers that option.
So the lesson of the day? If you’ve got a 2016 Dodge Viper, hold on to it—it’s sure to cost even more in the future. Especially since the Viper is getting axed after 2017.
