Viper Open House Will Welcome 550+ Enthusiasts
This weekend, more than 550 Dodge Viper enthusiasts will rev their way into the Motor City for a Viper Open House that will celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the first Viper homecoming in Auburn Hills in 1994. The Viper Open House will be held at several Chrysler Group facilities in Detroit, where drivers can get a closer look at just how their beloved beasts are put together. Afterwards, the enthusiasts will get to do what they do best—take their Vipers to the tracks.
The Viper Open House will include a lunch and a tour of the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit. The Dodge Vipers are hand-built at this very location. Drivers will also check out the Walter P. Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills, then head out to the Chrysler Proving Grounds in Chelsea, to put their Vipers through their paces. “With its 640-horsepower hand-built aluminum V-10 and hand-crafted body comprised of carbon fiber, aluminum, magnesium and high-strength steel, the Viper is a one-of-a-kind American exotic vehicle that is designed to reward each owner with pure performance and a high level of exclusivity,” explained Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO, Dodge and SRT Brands, Chrysler Group LLC. “This flagship American supercar has inspired loyal Viper enthusiasts for more than 20 years and continues to do so, as is evident by the more than 550 people who are coming to this Open House.” Viper enthusiasts in attendance will also be supporting a great cause. Each driver will bring a canned good to be donated to Operation Get-Down, which provides housing facilities to the homeless in the Detroit area.
